Nurse Clinics

At The Forest Vet, we are now introducing Nurse Clinics with our Registered Veterinary Nurses, whose knowledge and advice provides support for you are your pet alongside that of the veterinary surgeons. These are one-to-one clinics where you can discuss your concerns and receive advice on preventative healthcare such as flea and worming treatments, tick removal, microchipping, nutrition, post op checks, weight and more.

Claw Clips and Administering Medications

Our experienced nurses can help with nail clipping, as well as helping to administer medications such as worming tablets or even daily ear drops if you are struggling at home.

Geriatric Clinic

To identify and prevent the development of age-related problems, our geriatric clinics are a chance to discuss with one of our qualified nurses about any concerns you may have. Under advice from the vet they can do blood and urine screens to check organ function. They can also advise on diet for the changing nutritional requirements of your animal as they get older.

Dental Clinic

Animal's teeth need regular attention just like human teeth. Periodontal disease is one of the most common problems in dogs and cats, affecting 87% of dogs and 70% of cats over 3 years of age. It is the result of bacterial plaque accumulation and the associated inflammatory response. It is an irreversible process, which, if left untreated, will result in tooth loss. The main signs are bad breath, blood tinged saliva, discomfort when eating and food falling from the mouth. Prevention is key. Our experienced nurses can talk you through the different options such as tooth brushing and to do it, as well as diet.

Osteoarthritis Clinic

As animals get older, they can develop painful joints just like in people. Our nurses can help if you are feeling concerned, by talking through key signs such a reduction in exercise or place, stiffnes or lameness. They can talk through options to releave symptoms such as therapy to ease pain, diet or joint supplements.

Fu's Fat Fighters

Obesity in animals places extra demands on their body and organs, which can lead to many problems, inlcuding arthritis, heart disease, increased blood pressure, respiratory problems, diabetes, decreased stamina, decreased liver and immune function, increased risk of cancer, decreased quality and length of life, and finally increased surgical and anaesthetic risk. Our weight management clinic offer regular appointments with one of our qualified nurses to monitor your pet's progress after an initial consultation to assess their weight and body score, to decide on a target weight and how to get there. The nurse will support you through the whole process, discussing diet and exercise plans that can be adapted as you go depending on the regular weigh ins.

Puppy Parties

Puppies aren't born with the social skills they need for family life both human and canine. Socialisation just means the learning process puppies go through developing key life skills to enable them to communicate within soicals groups, making for happy and confident dogs. It's not just the language of dogs they need to learn, but also understanding the human world. It's key to socialise puppies while they are still young enough to happily accept new things, as rescue centres are seeing increasing numbers of dogs with behavioural issues that could have been prevented with proper socialisation. We offer complimentary puppy parties hosted by our behaviourist Fiona. These have the added benefit of not only beginning to socialise your puppy and learn some basic training techniques, but it also gets them used to coming into the practice so they are comfortable if they ever need to come in for procedures or even their annual check ups.
