New Clients

We always welcome new clients and patients to our full service veterinary practice in Canterbury.  We know you will be very happy with our services.

Please see the What to Expect section and then contact us.

Bringing your pet to the surgery

In the interest of you dog’s safety please use a collar or a harness and a lead. Allow him/her to go to the toilet before entering the waiting room.

Make sure your cat is in an escape-proof carrier.

It is not a good idea to feed your animal directly before coming to the surgery as over-excitement, nerves or the car journey could make him/her sick. It could also be an issue, should a aneasthesia, sedation or a blood test be necessary.

However, food should not be withheld from small furries and rabbits.

We look forward to meeting you and your pets!
