Companion Animal Services in Maghera
Our companion animal services and facilities are designed to assist in routine preventative care for healthy pets – early detection and treatment of disease as your pet ages, and complete medical and surgical care as necessary during his or her lifetime. We aim to keep pets healthy and happy. When we do carry out surgery or further treatments, you can trust that your pet will receive excellent care in our state of the art facilities.
We are open or available six days a week and if your pet does have to stay the night with us, we can hospitalise your pet in our own surgery, ensuring continuity of care and familiarity of surroundings for all pets. We never hand over after hours care to another organisation or move your pets to an unfamiliar bed for the night whilst we sleep soundly in ours.
Our consult times are 15 minutes, which means that your beloved pet gets a thorough check up, and will also give you plenty of time to ask questions. In case of very sick animals, we will admitt and hospitalise the pet immediatly and start investigating without delay. You do need to make an appointment to see one of our vets, but if you have a genuine emergency, you will be seen at once.
