We have cutting-edge lab equipment in house, so we can run a wide range of diagnostic tests. Our vets are highly skilled in diagnostic interpretation; they can pick the right tests for the right patients to provide a treatment plan tailored to the specific needs of your pet.
Here’s a snapshot of some of the services we offer.
With your Pickles membership, all routine vaccinations are included. For dogs, this includes Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis, Leptospirosis and Kennel Cough. While for cats, it includes Feline Panleukopenia virus, Calicivirus, Herpes Virus and Feline Leukaemia Virus. We will tailor your pet’s vaccination schedule to their needs. Before a vaccination, your pet will have a full health check and MOT and we can discuss any concerns you may currently have around your pet’s health. If you needed a restart vaccination course, this too is included in your Pickles membership.
Our experienced team of vets and nurses are available to help your pet in an emergency. The team will triage your pet to work out the extent of the emergency and provide urgent care as needed. We are always available for you during our working hours (Monday - Friday 8.30am-6.30pm, Saturday 9am-3pm). When we are closed, you will be directed to our trusted out of hours providers to make sure there is always someone available to look after your poorly pets.

Our amazing team of veterinary surgeons are trained to perform a great variety of surgeries including soft tissue abdominal surgery and some orthopaedic surgeries. Our vets work along with an experienced team of qualified nurses who will monitor your pet very closely during their anaesthesia.
Spays & Neuters
Our team of skilled vets will guide you through the benefits of neutering and when is the best time to get your pet neutered. Neutering is a routine procedure and our vets have performed hundreds of them so they are more than confident to do them! Your pet will be with us for the day and will be discharged by the end of the day. We will give you all the information needed for you to take care of your pet while recovering from the general anaesthesia and surgery.
Puppy & Kitten Exams
It can be scary bringing a new pet into the family but do not worry, we will be there every step of the way! We can provide a long appointment to allow your new puppy or kitten to get to know the clinic and our team. We can answer all of the questions you may have, however silly you feel they may seem! Your puppy or kitten will have a full health check and then we can do your pet’s first vaccines and give them their microchip. We will discuss nutrition and neutering to work out what suits them best.
We have a wide range of medications in-clinic for all of your pet’s needs. We have a flea and wormer subscription package (coming soon!). We will tailor a plan specific to your pet’s needs and can have it delivered directly to your house. It will also be easy to order your repeat medications through the Pickles app.
Our vets will solve all your questions regarding your pet’s weight - either if it’s too skinny or too chunky. We will give you the best and tailored advice and book follow ups to guide you throughout your pet's weight journey. We are in a proud partnership with Butternut Box which offers personalised plans with fresh meals delivered to your door. Ask us about any member-only offers they provide.
Saying goodbye to your beloved pet is never easy. That’s why at Pickles we want to help support you and your pet when that time comes. We have a designated room which is quiet, calm and comfortable for you, your family and your pet to take your time to spend these final moments together. Our vets and nurses can go through what will happen on the day in advance if required. We can also provide paw prints, fur clipping and a variety of options for ashes if you would like. We will be there for you every step of the way.
We offer a wide range of investigations, such as our modern inhouse blood machines that perform haematology and biochemistry. They can rapidly analyse to provide us with information about kidney and liver function, blood sugar, thyroid levels and a full blood cell and many others. We have a top of the range X-ray machine to help us to non-invasively visualise the integrity of bones, the organs in the abdomen and chest. We can also perform ultrasound of the chest and abdomen. We also have the privilege of having a cardiology specialist, Andrew Francis, among our team who can provide gold standard investigations into heart disease in both cats and dogs.
We will do a full examination of your pet’s skin and coat. If your pet is showing symptoms of skin disease we can discuss a diagnostic plan. Investigations that we can perform include; parasite checks, skin scrapes, hair plucks, allergy testing and skin biopsies. Our vets will work with you to find the best treatment to ensure your pet is comfortable and itch-free. There are various options for treatment including; shampoos, creams, medications, diets and immunotherapy.
Our vets will carefully check your pet’s mouth and recommend preventive hygiene treatment. We offer a wide range of dental care, including scale and polish to remove the tartar and treat underlying gingivitis. We also perform dental x-rays to assess the health of the tooth below the gum line allowing us to identify problems that are not visible with a physical examination. This helps our skilled vets to decide if the teeth are damaged and may need extracting. Our x-ray machine is one of the latest and most modern pieces of dental equipment on the market.
We can offer behavioural advice from an early age to get your pet ready for the world. We will also support your pet as they grow and change with their behaviour. If you are having problems with your pet’s behaviour, please book an appointment with one of our vets and we can offer advice and in some circumstances medication. If your pet has a complex behavioural problem, we can direct you to the best specialist in the veterinary field.
