The vet will take a clinical history- this means listening to the story of why you brought your pet to the practice.The vet will then give your pet a physical examination. Depending on the vet’s findings in the examination they may either prescribe treatments or may suggest that further tests need to be done before treatment can be prescribed.
Our vets’ aim is to listen carefully to your concerns, to discuss fully what may be needed to diagnose and treat your pet’s condition and to support you in all the decisions you need to make for your pet. We value a personal approach and continuity of care for our patients, so we will always try and arrange follow-up consultations with the same vet wherever possible to see your pet through a particular problem.
If your pet’s illness is more complex our first opinion vets can refer you within the practice to our referral clinicians, who have additional veterinary qualifications and can offer a comprehensive range of advanced investigations and treatments in advanced imaging, internal medicine, oncology, orthopaedic surgery and soft tissue surgery.
