NEW YEAR - NEW YOU -
After our Christmas binges we all
start January with a new force of
energy to get fit , lose weight etc
- so why don't you take a look at
your furry friend and do the same?
Have we wormed them lately ?
Have we given them flea treatment
Have they been weighed recently?
Could they also do with a diet revamp?
- if your furry friend has piled on
the pounds without you noticing now
is the time to reassess them and let
us vets help you with a diet plan.
Obesity in pets is just as important
as us - obesity can lead to Diabetes,
Arthritis , Lameness, Pancreatitis
etc. - all can be avoided.
In January all of these costs can
seem daunting but at the Forge we
now have in place a Pet Health Scheme
which will help you spread out the
costs so you're not left with huge
bills to pay - ring the surgery so
we can either send you a leaflet or
discuss with you and give you a quote
for your individual pet.
Our Vet nurses offer free weigh in
clinics to help you Mon - Fri 2pm
- 3pm (please pre book) and can also
give you advice on flea/worming and
