At The Forest Vet, we run Nurse Clinics with our Registered Veterinary Nurses, whose
knowledge and advice provides support for you and 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.
Mobile Nurse Clinics
Mobile nurse clinics are available to provide individual home improvements for your pet. Assessing flooring, patient bedding and feeding areas all contribute to ensuring patients care at home is assisting them to continue to be happy and comfortable. This applies to those young patients with osteoarthritis and our older, geriatric patients who require a little further support at home during their final years. Mobile clinics to discuss diet and weight loss in the home environment allow for patient specific plans to be devised alongside an appropriate exercise protocol. Post operative physiotherapy at home enables patients to receive further care to support their recovery in the comfort of their own home. This both minimises stress for the patient travelling and ease for owners assisting their pet into transport following surgery. Claw clips, anal gland expressions, librela injections, solensia injections may all be booked as a visit from one of our Registered Veterinary Nurses.
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
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.
