St Helen’s Petcare vets are always available to see your pet if they are not well. As well as diagnosing the condition the veterinary team will carry out any medical tests required and administer or prescribe medication. If your pet requires additional diagnostic testing or more specialist help, our vets can schedule the appropriate tests and appointments for you.
Pet health checks
All pets benefit from annual check ups. Regular health checks can help us find any problems in the early stages so they can be treated before causing illness. A health check includes an evaluation of all of your pet’s major organ systems. It is also a good opportunity for our vets to note any changes such as weight gain or loss, or for us to spot any subtle changes that may not be evident at home.
We will also ask you questions about your pet’s behaviour – such as exercise habits and appetite. It is an excellent opportunity for us to discuss any routine tests that may benefit your pet. We will also recommend any vaccinations that may be due, preventative measures against fleas, ticks and worms, as well as give advice on dental care and nutrition.
For pets entering their senior years we may recommend regular blood tests to check how their major organs are functioning. A pet health check is also your chance to ask questions or tell us your concerns about your pet. You are also welcome to attend our Vet Nurse Clinics.
