Routine Pet Health Care in Northern Ireland
Pet Vaccination Northern Ireland
We firmly believe in the prevention of disease, to help maintain a healthy pet vaccination is highly recommended.
Unvaccinated pets are at higher risk of disease, by choosing to vaccinate your pet against these highly contagious agents it will stimulate their immune system and therefore maximise their protection.
For a routine pet health care check-up and ensure that your pet is fully vaccinated, contact us to arrange an appointment.

Microchipping is not only a legal requirement but an excellent way of identifying your pet should they become lost.
This is a simple a quick procedure whereby a microchip is inserted under the skin causing no more discomfort than a standard vaccination.
We are happy to offer both standard sized microchips and also mini microchips which are suitable for smaller pets.
If you do not intend to breed from your pet there are many health benefits in deciding to have them castrated or spayed.
These are day procedures so your pet can be admitted in the morning and discharged that afternoon/evening.

Fleas are one of the most common parasites that can infect your pet. ‘Flea dirt’ can sometimes be seen as small specks on your pets hair, they can cause intense scratching and in some cases this can result in considerable levels of discomfort due to secondary skin infections. We can tailor treatment and prevention options to best keep these pesky parasites under control.
Protect your pet against ticks, not only can they cause localised irritation but can also transmit lyme disease a devastating condition caused by the transfer of bacterial infection. Although numbers increase from March to November ticks can be a year round problem and so it is important that we include tick control in our routine preventative measures to optimise pet health
Intestinal worms are common in our pets and there is a risk of spread to humans. Dogs and cats can be infected by worms at any stage of their life so effective, regular treatment is required. Puppies and kittens should be treated against worms every 2 weeks until 12 weeks old then every month until 6 months old and then every 3 months for the rest of their lives. In some cases worm treatment can be increased to every month.
