Case Studies

A lot of people’s experience with vets are the routine things such as vaccines or flea treatment, or the occassional sickness, but many of our pets require more specialist treatments.

We would like to share some of their stories with you so that you can see what is involved in caring for your pets, as always if you would like more information of treatments you see in these stories then please contact us.

Finally, thank you to all the owners who allowed us to publish their stories and use their photo’s.
