Forefront of Veterinary Medicine
All of our veterinary team undertake regular training, allowing us to keep up-to-date with all the latest advances within the field of veterinary medicine.
We have a strong working relationship with the pharmaceutical companies, which in turn allow us to provide cutting edge treatment options, for example the utilisation of monoclonal antibodies in chronic arthritis cases.
We also work with drug compounding companies, which allows us to provide medicines in a variety of different formats.
For example, if your cat isn’t very good at taking tablets, we can often obtain the medicines in liquid form, or even as a transdermal gel which absorbs via the skin. As you can imagine, this makes administrating the medicine to the reluctant patient so much easier!
