Nurse Clinics 

Senior Pet Clinics

As our senior pets gets older, the risk of health issues increases, our pets suffer just like we do with age. So here at Spire Vets, we are offering senior pet clinics on Wednesdays and Thursdays, they will be held with our registered veterinary nurses. Often seemingly small changes can be an early warning sign of kidney or liver disease, arthritis, and many other ailments.  Having a full MOT with one of our caring, proactive nurses can detect problems before they become bigger health concerns. The nurse then will work alongside the vet, cut out some costs and save some of your valuable time.

Animals that qualify for these clinics:

Cats from the age of 10 years +

Dogs from the age of 7 years +

When booking an appointment, we ask if you could download a questionnaire. When completing this questionnaire,  email it back it to us prior to your visit, this then helps us to understand your pet better and minimises the number of questions we need to ask you.

What is included in the clinics

The nurse will dedicate 45 minutes of her time to get to know you and your pet, and provide the best care possible.
