We are very happy to come to your house to examine your pet but would like you to know that we cannot carry all the possible equipment or drugs needed for every case and very often we know that your pet may need hospital treatment from the descriptions that you give. Routine appointments and emergency treatments are therefore better performed at the surgery.
We understand that you may wish to have your pet put down at home and when that time comes we are happy to send a vet and a nurse to allow your pet's last moments to be in a comfortable and familiar environment.
Routine and Emergency Surgery
We have a dedicated operating theatre and our nurses and vets are trained and continually updating their knowledge in anaesthesia and surgery from the routine to complex fracture repairs.
For larger or more complex surgeries we have a surgical suite in our Homefield Road Clinic in Haverhill. Some emergency surgery may be directed to our Haverhill practice.
The most common routine procedures we do are neutering (spays and castrations).
Please phone for advice regarding neutering of all species.
Pet Healthcare Plans
We always hope that we can say that our clients have the healthiest pets in Suffolk! To try and achieve this our practice provides healthcare plans, not only to keep your pets in top health but also your purses too, by spreading the cost of routine healthcare throughout the year at a discounted rate. As members of the scheme we also give you a 10% discount on all of our services for your pet should the need arise. Payments are taken by direct debit monthly and this spreads the cost of vaccination, worming and flea control over twelve months. Nail clips, microchips and two health checks a year are included in the scheme. Please contact us for further details.
Socialisation is an important part of a puppy’s development. One of our nurses, has puppy parties every other Thursday afternoon and our reception area is filled with puppies. Not only are they a great deal of fun but they your puppy with a chance to see and socialise and, most importantly, play with other puppies. Our nurses and vets are happy to answer any of your questions at the time.
Professional Dog Trainer
Adrian Hornsby, a professional dog trainer comes to our Hawkedon surgery once a month to help you and your dog progress with training. He will assess you and your dog and give advice for any problems you have. He also will provide bespoke one to one training and takes dogs in at his kennels for the purposes of training. We hope to start training sessions in Haverhill in the near future. Bookings can be made through the practice.
