Services

Consultation

To help to reduce waiting times, consultations are by appointment.

 

However, unwell animals will always be seen on the same day.

 

We allocate a fifteen-minute time slot for our consultations, which allows adequate time for a thorough clinical examination of your pet and for you to discuss your pet’s condition with the Vet.

Free Nurse Clinics

Our qualified nurses are happy to provide free consultations on the following subjects:

 

  • Dental check ups and advice

 

  • Parasite control

Hospital Inpatient Care

If your pet requires hospital inpatient care, they will be settled into either our isolation ward, hospital ward or surgical ward, depending on their condition. Amical has hospital kenneling facilities for over 46 patients.

 

Veterinary nurses care for hospital inpatients under the supervision of the veterinary surgeon. They carry out a joint hospital ward round at least twice daily. Dogs are walked regularly in our private garden for exercise and to allow toileting. During normal working hours, we have a veterinary nurse permanently in our hospital ward attending to our inpatients’ needs.

A veterinary nurse conducts a night check late evening to walk dogs, check drips, medicate and ensure the health and welfare of all patients. The night duty veterinary nurse does not stay on the premises throughout the night. However, a critical care patient will have one to one nursing for as long as required.

Surgery

At Amical Veterinary Centre we carry out surgery under sterile conditions in our theatre, with our veterinary nurses monitoring patients with the aid of monitoring equipment, both during and post operatively.

 

We highly recommend pre-anaesthetic blood tests prior to any surgery to highlight any potential problems.

 

Elective surgery is carried out on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Admissions are between 8:00am – 9:00am on these mornings. Emergency surgical procedures are carried out as soon as possible on any day as required.
