DO you have a dog or cat over eight years old?

Millcroft Vets invite you to talk to us about our Senior Wellness clinics - designed with our older pets in mind.

We are introducing a service that enable your pet to benefit from a little extra care and monitoring to keep them healthy.

Pets aged eight years and over are welcome to book a Wellness Health Check with a Registered Veterinary Nurse (RVN), which includes a nose to tail examination; advice on weight; dental care and mobility; and the opportunity to have discounted laboratory tests.

This clinic* can provide us with a lot of information regarding the health of your pet, and potentially catch health concerns before they develop into something more serious.

The consultation with an RVN cost £13.50 and you can add the following items at the time:

•Blood pressure test - 10% discount

•Urine tests - 10% discount

•Comprehensive blood test to check organ function - 10% discount

Should there be any concerns about the health of your pet, our RVNs will refer you for a consultation with one of our vets at a 50% discount.

Millcroft Veterinary Group is an independent veterinary practice dedicated to providing quality veterinary care in Cumbria. Across the region, we have a team of 23 vets, 14 Registered Veterinary Nurses, and 3 Student Veterinary Nurses, who, as well as working with your animals throughout the day, provide treatment to animals that need it while we are closed.

Any further questions regarding patient care out of normal opening hours, please contact us.
