Medicines & supplements
We try to keep medicine usage to a minimum whilst ensuring that significant disease or infection is treated thoroughly and effectively.
This means striking a balance: using our experience to know when when significant medical or surgical intervention is required, and then when a treatment is not required because an animal's immune system is already on the case and fixing the problem.
We are a low steroid use clinic and you won't find us handing out antibiotics 'just in case'. We use a lot of pro-biotics to supplement the healthy bacteria in the digestive system, especially at times of stress during medical treatment and around vaccination time.
We frequently use nutritional supplements – nutraceuticals – in the management of conditions such as arthritis, kidney failure, digestive disorders, heart problems and liver disease, to help support our patients in their fight against disease or to repair injury.
