We believe in providing the best level of care for your pet and so all of our veterinary nurses are fully qualified and are registered with the Royal college of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS).  They have spent years training and have all passed extremely challenging examinations.  Our nurses have decades of experience and give a level of professional care second to none.  Many of our nurses have worked with Albany Veterinary Clinic for many years.  This means you are welcomed with a familiar face to care for your pet.

As well as caring for your pet when they are sick, under anaesthesia or injured, our nurses are specialists in preventative care.  There are a number of appointments designed to help you avoid illness in your pet.

  • Puppy and kitten clinics – here your new companion can have a regular free of charge health check. You can discuss diet, training and socialisation. We advise monthly worming and health check until your new pet is 6 months old.  Legally they do need to have been examined first by one of our vets for the nurses to provide parasite treatment.   These clinics also provide an opportunity for us to bond with your pet and reduce any anxiety around clinic visits.  These clinics are free of charge other than the cost of the parasite treatments.
  • Parasite control clinics – Fleas, ticks and worms are an on-going concern for your pet. Our veterinary nurses will provide advice and prescription treatments to control these unwanted pests.
  • Nutrition and weight control clinics – Our nurses are experts in nutrition and are ready to advise you on an appropriate diet for your pet. Obesity is an increasingly common health issue in our pet population and can lead to joint disease, diabetes and contribute to heart disease and high blood pressure.   Our nurses will provide the support you often need to make positive changes for your pet.
  • Senior wellness clinics – Careful monitoring of your cat or dog becomes essential in the senior years. There are many disease processes which are ‘silent killers’ or cause pain to your pet but can often be picked up at an early stage.  Our nurses offer a half an hour appointment including regular weighing, health check, blood pressure measurement and urine sample test.  This helps us detect diseases such as kidney disease, high blood pressure, urinary tract infections, dental disease and an over active thyroid in cats.  This appointment is available for cats and dogs over 8 years of age at a cost of £35 and is recommended every 3 months. If a problem is detected our nurses will recommend an appointment with a vet.  These appointments are designed to ensure your pet stays healthy and not to diagnose a disease.  If you are aware that your pet has a current illness please book in with one of our vets who can advise you on treatment and give a diagnosis.
  • Dental clinics – Our nurses are well trained in providing dental care training. They can guide you through techniques to help dental hygiene and prevent the progression of dental disease.  When treatment is needed, following up with homecare is ideal to reduce recurrence.
  • Rabbit clinics – Our nurses will be happy to see you for regular weight checks, nail clips and discussion about your rabbit’s care.
