It is important to monitor your diabetic pet regularly to assess the evolution and control of their diabetes and thus determine changes in their insulin requirements.
The goal of treatment of diabetes mellitus is to minimise:
- the clinical signs of diabetes
- the risk of hypoglycaemia
- the development of long term complications
This clinic will run on a Thursday afternoon, between 3 and 4pm. Appointments are to be made with Lynsey Irvine. Lynsey will give free advice about diabetes.
Clients are asked to bring a urine sample and their diabetes journal with them. Lynsey will perform blood glucose monitoring and urinalysis for free.
Nobody stays young forever and as your pet ages their needs change. One sad reality of being a pet owner is that your pet will reach old age long before you do. Ageing pets need a little more attention, but can still have a healthy, enjoyable and fulfilling life in their late ages.
We have launched our new free clinic for older pets. (dogs over 8 years and cats over 10 years).
Celebrate Seniors is a free nurses clinic run by Pat Graham VN, our most experienced nurse. The clinic will be run by appointment only on a Thursday afternoon.
During the appointment your pet will be given a free health check, urine analysis, mobility assessment and weight check. There will also be the option for blood testing to assess blood glucose, liver and kidney function and a blood count.
Did you know up to 50% of all pets are overweight? Even a few extra pounds may be a health risk.
Get your pet back in shape and keep him fit.
This clinic will run on a Wednesday afternoon, by appointment, with Lisa Bibby.
