Desensitisation Clinics

These clinics are very beneficial for our nervous patients. Visiting the Vet can be incredibly stressful for some pets and their owners.

These visits aim to be a positive experience for both you and your pet. They aim to get your pet to relax in our practice environment and slowly build them up so coming to the Vets becomes an enjoyable experience. These visits help to reassure your pet’s so we don’t do anything that would worry them, we just give them lots of fuss and treats! (With your permission).

We can also get them used to having a basic examination without being fearful. This will include getting them used to having their paws touched, their ears, eyes and teeth examined and having a stethoscope on their chest to listen to their heart.

Diabetic Clinics

If you are learning to live with a pet who is diabetic, you will appreciate our nurse’s professional help and support. During the clinics, we will discuss:

  • What is diabetes and how is it treated
  • How to draw up, administer and store the insulin
  • Diet
  • Exercise
  • What to do in cases of low blood sugar levels (hypoglycaemia)
  • Weight management

We will also teach you how to monitor your pet and manage their condition. Managing diabetic patients can be time consuming and difficult but our nurses are here to help and support you along this treatment journey.

We will then see your pet’s every 3 months to monitor their condition, check their weight and to check to make sure that you as owners are okay as well.

Mobility Clinics

Like us our pets can experience discomfort in a variety of forms and to varying degrees.

Understandably, as a pet gets older signs of discomfort or mobility issues become more obvious. But, unfortunately mobility issues can occur in pets of all life stages. As our pets are unable to tell us in words how they feel, it is our job as owners to look out for signs that might indicate that there is a problem – such as:

  • Stiffness getting up and down, especially after exercise or resting
  • Difficulty jumping into a car, or for cats jumping down from higher surfaces
  • A reduction in exercise
  • Restlessness and the inability to be able to get comfortable
  • Acting out of character, increased aggression or vocalisation
  • Not caring for themselves as they would, so not grooming due to soreness or feeling painful in areas

The mobility clinics are designed to help support you as owners and offer advice on how you can help your pet alleviate discomfort and become more active. As Veterinary Nurses if we feel it is necessary we will also refer them to a vet if further medical intervention is needed.

During the clinic we will go through the mobility pet questionnaire. We will discuss the changes that you have noted in your pet’s behaviour and create a suitable action plan designed for your pet’s needs.

Senior Pet Clinic

These days our pets are living longer and longer! However, we consider patients over the age of 7 years to be ‘senior’.

Like us, our pets can develop age related diseases such as diabetes, kidney problems, hypertension or issues with their eyesight. They will often hide any discomfort they are in though, due to their primal survival instincts, leading back to when our pets were wild.

At Well House Vets we are passionate about providing care for patients of all life stages. These clinics are designed to help support your pet in their senior years and if we feel it is necessary we will also refer them to a vet if further medical intervention is needed.

During the clinic we will go through the senior pet questionnaire. We will discuss the changes that you have noted in your pet’s behaviour, bodily functions, activity/mobility, skin and coat conditions. We will also give recommendations on how to manage the changes and give you advice on suitable diets for pets.

Weight Clinics

Make this year the year your pet gets into shape!

At Well House we run FREE weight clinics for both dogs and cats.

Obesity is the disease with the highest prevalence worldwide with a growing impact on dogs and cats.

Some medical conditions which are associated with obesity include:

  • Breathing problems
  • Heart Disease
  • Urinary Disease
  • Arthritis
  • Diabetes – overweight cats are 4 x more likely to develop diabetes
  • Obesity can also lead to decreased life expectancy and a reduced quality of life

Our nurses can also offer advice to owners who are finding they are struggling to get their pets to gain and maintain their weight.

During the clinics our experienced nurses will go through the pre filled in questionnaire, so we have a better understanding on your pet’s current exercise and diet requirements. We will weigh your pet and carry out a body condition score. We then discuss a suitable diet and exercise plan for your pet to help with the weight loss.
