Our service specialisations

Preventative examinations

Current developments in the health policy arena are making early medical diagnosis a more topical issue than ever before. We offer numerous different preventative examinations.

These are strongly recommended for older patients, especially those receiving on-going or long term medications.

Picking up organic disease at an early stage before signs have become apparent can allow a targetted approach to delay the onset of disease and maintain good health for longer.


We recommend annual blood checks for dogs over 10 and cats over 12.  Patients with existing disease and those where medications are being used that can potentially cause organic damage should have six monthly blood and urine checks.
