The nurses at Broom Cottage are an integral part of the team. Although they spend much of their time behind the scene, our nurses can be anything from dentists, midwives, radiographers, anaesthetists, phlebotomists to first aiders, lab technicians, bereavement counsellors and much, much more. One very important role the nurses play at Broom Cottage Veterinary Surgery is to offer clinics for your pet. Our nurses have a wealth of information and advice about animal health and well-being, so we want you to benefit. Call us now on 01625 525175 to book.
- Puppy Clinics – welcoming a new puppy to your family can be an exciting time, but also an overwhelming one. On your first trip to the vet, there will be a lot of information to digest. We, therefore, invite you back for monthly appointments with our nurse to cover important aspects of puppy care including, socialisation, nutrition, preventative health care and neutering.
- Kitten Clinics – whilst our vet will cover the important basics in your first appointment, our nurses can offer regular clinic appointments whilst your kitten is still young to discuss important issues such as behaviour, neutering and preventative flea and worm treatment. Bringing your kitten into the practice regularly is a great way to get them more comfortable with a trip to the vets.
- Diet & Nutrition – Just like us, sometimes our pets need help with managing their weight. At Broom Cottage Vets, our nurses are committed to ensuring your pet is on the most suitable diet. We understand that education is the key and our nurses are on hand to provide a host of information about pet weight, from why they gain and what a body condition score is, to helpful advice and tips on how you can maintain your pets ideal weight. Our nurses can also offer advice and assistance for those pets needing specialised diets due to medical conditions.
- Worming and Flea Advice – Just the thought of fleas, ticks and worms leaves most owners feeling itchy and squirmy. But with parasites on the rise and a whole host of treatment options available our nurses can help find the best strategy for you and your family.
