Nurse Clinics and Pet Physiotherapy
Our highly skilled and experienced nursing team are vital to the success of our practice. They provide 24 hour nursing care for all our patients and also run nurse clinics and pet physiotherapy sessions for patients recovering from injury or post surgery.
Some of our nurses have additional qualifications such as surgical nursing diplomas. All of our nurses keep up to date with the latest developments in veterinary nursing by attending regular in-house and external training courses.
We are proud to be an RCVS Approved Veterinary Nurse Training Practice and have trained many veterinary nurses over the years.
Our nurses can offer advice on diet and weight control, exercise, worming and defleaing, behaviour problems and general health issues during nurse clinics.
They also admit patients for procedures, discharge patients after procedures, perform post-operative checks, remove sutures, implant microchips and administer certain injections under veterinary direction.
Many nurse appointments such as admission and discharge appointments and post operative checks are free of charge to the client, however some for example nail clips, injections, dressing changes etc will incur a charge.
Please contact our Abington or Moulton surgeries to make an appointment with a member of our nursing team.
Our nurses run pet physiotherapy sessions for dogs and cats at our Moulton surgery. Physiotherapy is available for either inpatients or outpatients. Treatments offered include massage, heat and cold therapy, therapeutic exercise, neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES), transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) and development of home exercise plans.
