Commonly Asked Questions

Can I register as a new client?

We are currently taking on new Equine clients only. Once staffing levels of the small animal clinic have increased, we will open our books to new small animal clients.

Are there any payment plans available?

All outstanding account balances must be paid in full within 30 days of receipt of the invoice. 
However, payment plans may be initiated after consultation with practice owner Hannah Kelly and practice manager Florence Gill.

My pet is insured, how do I make a claim?

We have a dedicated member of staff, Catherine Cane, who handles all insurance queries. We recommend waiting until a diagnosis has been made and most, if not all, treatment completed. At this point, print a claim form from your insurer, fill in your details and hand it into the practice. We will take care of the rest.

Do you treat exotic animals?

We welcome all varieties of animals; we are fully equipped with knowledge and expertise to treat most of the common ailments that may affect your pet whether they are a rabbit, ferret, guinea pig, tortoise, owl or budgie. Please call us to discuss your particular need.

When can my dog be neutered?

We advise that male dogs be castrated no younger than 6 months old but ideally your dog should be at least 1 year old.


Female dogs should not be spayed until they have had their first season. It is recommended that you make a note of the date the season ends and arrange for the surgery 3 months later.
