Cat Friendly Clinic
McKenzie Vets are proud to announce that we are now a Silver Award Cat Friendly Practice.
Regular vaccinations throughout your pets life will ensure protection from many preventable diseases.
As an alternative to annual vaccination against Parvovirus, Distemper and Canine Hepatitis we can offer antibody titre testing in dogs. We still recommend vaccinating against Leptospirosis.
Worming and Flea / Tick Preventative Treatment
We have a range of prescription strength options to prevent your pets picking up parasites including potentially dangerous lungworm, toxocara, tapeworm, fleas, mites and ticks.
Puppy and Kitten Services
In addition to primary vaccination courses, microchipping and parasite treatment, seeing your puppy or kitten regularly at the surgery for weighing and cuddles is invaluable for socialising and making sure they are not scared coming to the vets later in life.
We understand what a worrying time it is when your pet is poorly. We're here to give a full clinical examination and discuss treatment plans with you to get them back to full health again.
Regular Health Checks
Regular check ups will help with early diagnosis of any illnesses and keep your pet in tip top health.
Senior Pet Care
As our pets get older they are often more prone to developing health issues such as arthritis, heart disease, kidney disease, obesity and dental problems. The sooner these problems are picked up, the more we can do to keep your pet healthy and happy for as long as possible.
We can offer many options for ongoing care, both with medications and other alternatives such as acupuncture, laser, nutritional advice and behaviour modifications.
End of Life Care
When the sad time comes to say goodbye our experienced, caring vets can make it a little easier. We can give advice and guidance on how to make difficult decisions, and help to make your pet's final passing peaceful and gentle.
We offer neuter operations for female and male dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets.
At Mckenzies we carry out many different surgical procedures in a daily basis, from routine surgeries to emergencies. We are well equipped with:
- Highly trained staff
- Prep room
- Dedicated operating theatre
- Modern anaesthetic facilities suitable for all ages, shapes and sizes of patients
- Surgical lighting
- Oxygen concentrator
- Modern monitoring and surgical equipment
- Comfortable kennels with padded beds and a dedicated recovery nurse
We have modern dental equipment and the ability to do dental xrays.
Our brand new digital x-ray developer gives even better images to aid in diagnosis of sick and injured pets. We also offer BVA Hip and Elbow Scheme x-ray as recommended by the Kennel Club for breeders.
Our ultrasound examination can also aid diagnosis of many conditions as well as being used for pregnancy scans.
Laser and Acupuncture
These are both available at Mckenzies and have many uses, from pain management of chronic conditions like arthritis and ear problems to speeding up wound healing.
Fully Equipped Lab and Microscopy
Our in house lab facilities means we can do many blood, urine and faeces tests at the surgery allowing for same-day test results.
Pet Health Club
Our Pet Health Club is an affordable way to spread the cost of routine care as well as giving discounts off other treatments such as neutering and long-term medications.
Whether for a medical problem such as obesity, diabetes, intestinal or skin issues, or just for advice on life-stage diets, our vets and nurses have all had nutritional training to help you decide what to feed your pet. Our vet Nadia can also advise on the nutritional and husbandry needs of more exotic species.
