Health Checks and Consultations

Whether it’s for a routine health check, or whether you you’re worried that something isn’t quite right with your pet’s health- we can help!

Our appointments are a comfortable 30 minutes long- there’ll be no rush and no stress.

There will be plenty of time for your pet to get to know us, and we will make sure that they’re comfortable with the exam. 

Your pet will get a thorough examination, and there will be plenty of time to ask questions and to discuss your concerns.

We know that everyone is different, and we’ll make sure that our treatment plan works for you as well as your pet.

The vast majority of health issues can be dealt with at home. If the condition is more serious, we will refer you back to your clinic for expert treatment there.

Video Consultations

If you live further away, we can arrange a video consultation.

This works really well when your pet doesn’t necessarily need a hands on exam.

Maybe you have lots of questions about a particular aspect of your pet’s health, for example vaccinations, food, holistic parasite prevention and much more.

Maybe you feel overwhelmed with everything that has been done and said at your home clinic.

It can really help to talk it all through with someone. We help you to get a clear understanding of your pet’s condition, what has already been done and why, and what your options are going forward.

Or are you looking for holistic options to support your pet alongside the conventional treatment they’re receiving from your home vet?

We can help with all of that.

Just like with our face to face consultations, we always work in partnership with your home vet. We will ask your home clinic to send your pet’s clinical notes to us, and we report our notes back to them after the consultation.

We strongly believe that openness and collaboration is the best way for everyone.

If this sounds like something you need, please contact us to find out if a video consultation is suitable for you and for your pet.

Titre Testing

To avoid over– and under vaccination, we highly recommend Titre Testing.

It’s a simple blood test that shows if a dog (or cat) is still protected against the core diseases, or if they need a booster.

Find out more here.

Titre tests can be done as part of a Health Check Consultation, and we also run regular Titre Testing Sessions at various local venues.

A mini Health Check is included in the Titre Testing Sessions.

Please check our Facebook page for the latest session – @petsrelaxed or sign up for our newsletter.

Titre Testing does not include Leptospirosis, this vaccine needs to be renewed every year.

Lifestyle Assessments for Elderly Pets

This is such an overlooked area in Veterinary Care. When our elderly companions slow down, when they’re less active and interact less with us, we often put it down to ‘normal ageing’ and accept it as something that we can’t do anything about.

We’ve heard countless times: “It’s just his age”.

But there is so much we can do to help!

Home visits really come into their own here. It is invaluable to see the pet in their normal daily environment, and even small changes can often have a big impact.

We look at diet, exercise, home environment, useful supplements, pain relief and much more.

If you have an elderly pet and are wondering if there’s anything that could be done to help them be happier and more comfortable- the answer is almost certainly: Yes

We highly recommend you book this appointment.

60min £180,-

Holistic Consultation, Acupuncture and Herbal Medicine

This is a longer appointment with an in depth assessment of your pet.

It’s fantastic if your pet has a chronic condition that’s not as well controlled as you might like.

Those frustrating situations, maybe with arthritis, a chronic skin issue, internal organ failure or even cancer.

You and your vet have tried it all, but you wish and wonder if there’s more that could be done.

We’ll take lots of time to talk through all your concerns.

There’ll be a thorough assessment of you pet’s  previous clinical history and a detailed exam.

Where it’s appropriate, this consultation also includes the first acupuncture or laser session, and an assessment for suitable herbal medicine.

Be prepared for a list of questions that are different to what you may expect from a vet consultation, including questions about your pet’s temperament, likes and dislikes.

Please allow 60 minutes for this appointment.

End of Life and Hospice Care

Sometimes it’s difficult to know when the time is right for euthanasia.

 Why not book an End of Life Care appointments, and we will assess your companion’s quality of life together.

 We can prescribe or give any treatment to keep them comfortable, and we decide together when the time comes to let go.

 You can book as many End of Life Care appointments as you need before the Home Euthanasia. We will always support you and help you to make the choice that’s right for you.

It’s always possible to change a Euthanasia appointment to an End of Life and Hospice Care appointment, and vice versa, while we’re there.

Home Euthanasia

Sadly, in many pets lives there comes a time when it’s kindest to let go, and to have our beloved companion put to sleep.

This is such a heartbreaking decision to have to make.

We’ve been there too, with our own pets- we understand.

It can give you so much comfort to say the final good bye peacefully at home.

We are highly experienced in Home Euthanasia and will do our utmost to make this a calm and positive time for you and your pet.

This is always booked as a longer appointment, so that there’s never any rush. You can take as much time as you need.

We will give your pet a sedative first, so that they will be deeply asleep and relaxed , and won’t feel the final injection at all.

They can stay in their bed throughout, or in your arms, or anywhere they would like to be. Weather permitting we also do garden euthanasias for those outdoor loving pets.

Friends and family members, including children, can be present, if you wish.

 

Aftercare

We work closely with two handpicked, local pet crematoria and we’ll usually arrange for them to come and collect your pet. Like us, they’re passionate about giving you and your animal companion the best possible care.

You can also make your own arrangements for cremation or home burial, if you prefer.

The price for Home Euthanasia depends on the size of your pet. Please ask for details.

Cremation is invoiced separately and is payable to the crematorium directly.

 

Please read our testimonials and see how comforting and peaceful so many clients have found the Home Euthanasia for their pets.

Laser Therapy

This is an exciting treatment option for a vast range of conditions involving pain or inflammation.

We use it a lot for chronic arthritis, when traditional treatments alone don’t give a good enough effect, but it can be used for so much more.

Most chronic conditions can benefit from laser therapy.
