Pet Vaccinations & Regular care tips for your companion

We’d like to help you to keep your companion pet safe, happy and healthy. If you just need some advice, pet vaccinations, remember: we’re just a phone call or email away. Here’s our Quick Guide to caring for your companion.


Pet vaccinations, pet boosters and pet jabs

It’s important to maintain your pet’s immunity from serious disease – and that means animal immunisation. At our Coalville animal hospital, we offer all the pet jabs and pet boosters you need: pet vaccination is required for pet insurance and by boarding kennels, so do contact us to discuss your pet’s needs.


Fleas and Worming

Irritating for all in the short term but can fleas and worms can pose serious health threats over the longer term. We can help you with regular worming and continuous flea treatments – and for some extra help, come to our free flea and work clinics for some practical advice from our veterinary nurses.


Lungworm protection

A dangerous condition caused by a parasite carried by snails, slugs and the frogs that eat them. Infection is all too easy while eating grass, playing with toys left outside or drinking from outdoor water bowls, puddles and ponds. Flea and worming treatments won’t work: if you think your pet is infected, call us to make an appointment. Find out more at one of our free clinics.


Pet diets and pet nutrition

We know how much you care for your pet and a balanced diet, combined with exercise, is fundamental to your companion’s health. Obesity in companion animals is becoming increasingly common and carries serious health risks: our free pet weight clinics help give you the advice you need.


Pet neutering

If you don’t intend to breed your pet we encourage cat neutering / dog neutering / rabbit neutering or pet spaying, services we offer in our Coalville animal surgery. Pet neutering helps prevent thousands of unwanted pregnancies every year, and can prevent anti-social behaviour (particularly in male animals). Why not consider a laparoscopic (keyhole) spay? They’re much less painful and post-operative recovery is much faster than normal spays. Just ask our veterinary nursing team for more information.
