Our Registered Veterinary Nurses run a range of nurse clinics to provide help and advice for pet owners.
The veterinary nursing team at Pets'n'Vets in Glasgow, are passionate about supporting you and your pets. Nurse clinics are an excellent option to get advice and assistance for a wide range of preventative healthcare, as well as support with managing health conditions.
Veterinary nurses can support you with advice (within these clinics) about caring for your pet on a variety of areas such as:
- Senior health care - caring for older pets
- Nutrition and weight management - planning a nutritious diet
- Post-operative care - what to do after an operation
- Dental care - keeping teeth and gums healthy
They can also administer some treatments including:
- Second vaccinations
- Various medications
- Applying flea, tick and worming treatment
Finally, there are many procedures that veterinary nurses can complete during a nurse clinic. For example, wound management (redressing and reapplying bandages) and nail clipping to name just a couple.
As you can see, there are many areas our veterinary nurses can help you with during a nurse clinic, please get in touch to find out more!
Some services incur charges and certain nurse clinics are only available at certain branches due to space and facilities.
We want to keep your pet as healthy as possible which is why we run a number of fantastic nurse clinics.
What happens at a nurse clinic?
At a Pets'n'Vets Family nurse clinic we can offer anal gland expression, nail clips, dental checks, weigh and worms, flea and tick prevention plus lots of great pre-purchase advice!
Nurse appointments are also a really great way of getting your pet used to coming to the vets, our Consulting Nurse Cheree explains: “Our nurse clinics have many benefits for our clients and their pets – one of the main things I work on is socialisation. As we know, many animals have anxiety coming to see the vet. Through our nurse clinics, we will build up the pet’s confidence by inviting them to see us when the focus is on offering lots of cuddles and treats to make positive memories! We really do see the results: relaxed, happy pets at the vet!”
What advice can I get at a nurse clinic?
Our nurses are here to offer grooming advice - whether it be how to clean your pets’ eyes and ears, or how to brush their coat, especially when your furry friend doesn’t enjoy you getting close to them with a brush in hand. Our fantastic team can also answer any dietary questions you may have, for example, how many times a day should my pet be getting fed, how much food do I give him or her? We can also help you understand which treats are appropriate, as well as highlight toxic foods within the house such as chocolate, raisins and grapes.
Our nurses are also a great first point of call for advice with regards to mild behavioural issues such as toilet training, mild separation anxiety, and basic social skills. Anything more complex, our nurses are on hand to refer you to the appropriate qualified professional as we know that it’s often through conversation with our nurses, that issues are identified.
