However your pet may feel about coming to the vets we aim to make our consultation room a calm and friendly place that your cat or dog can explore whilst we chat to you about your questions or concerns. For us a yearly booster vaccination is an opportunity to build a relationship between the vet, pet and pet owner, discussing optimal feeding and parasite control. Kindness and a thorough approach all come as standard.
We love to get to know you and your pets hence we try to book the vet of your choice time after time. If 'your vet' is away from the practice we will aim to let you know who will be taking care of your pet's needs e.g. reporting results, advising on medication or looking after your pet in the hospital.
Your pets are all different and at Fivelands our vets recognise that sometimes we need to think 'outside of the box' to find treatments that are suitable cats who don't like tablets or solutions that match your budget.
If your pet is in the hospital overnight you can expect an update from a vet at least once a day providing the opportunity to ask questions allowing you to direct the care of your pet with advice from our vets. We endeavour to provide a time frame and plan for your pet's treatment- communicating information as soon as it becomes available, involving you every step of the way.
- Hospitalisation with comfort and love
If your pet does need to be admitted to one of our wards rest assured that they will receive a comfortable, quiet space where they will have attention from our team of nurses usually at a ratio of 1:3 or less. Our nursing staff prepare fresh meat and fish for those patients who need that extra special encouragement to eat. For larger dogs or those with reduced mobility we have cushioned mattresses as well as the standard fluffy Vetbeds. If required, drips and intravenous medication can be provided electronically and monitored by our veterinary nursing team. Should you wish to visit your pet in hospital we always try to provide a quiet space to allow you to spend time together.
