Welcome to Crouch Vale Veterinary Practice.
It’s our 13th Birthday! Can you believe that we first opened our doors 13 years ago today?
Thank you to all the lovely people who have supported us and continue to support us everyday.
We feel so fortunate to have such amazing clients and their fur babies coming to see us.
It’s been a while since our last update but not a lot has changed for us.
Ais is still the only permanent vet, so whilst this is the case, our books still remain closed.
We are now very fortunate to have our lovely locum, Joseph, who is helping us a couple of days a week.
This is definitely helping ease some of the pressure we are under but, understandably, we are still incredibly busy and our books for new client registrations remain closed.
We are also starting nurses’ appointments and clinics.
My experienced and dedicated nurses are here to help with appointments for:
- Nail clipping
- Administering medications – ear drops/eye drops/ wormers/flea treatments
- Repeat injections of Librela/Cytopoint/Solensia
- Repeat injections of Depomedrone
- Post operative check ups
- New puppy/kitten consults to go through feeding, flea/worming, exercise, neutering, socialisation etc.
- Blood samples to monitor medical conditions
- Pre-puppy consults to discuss what to look for, general advice on breeds etc. etc.
There are also clinics available: weight, dental and senior.
Why not join our weight clinic, designed to provide you and your pet with a bespoke plan to help them shed those pounds or gain the extra weight they need.
We give advice on foods, feeding regimes, exercise and handy tips to keep you on track. We book follow up appointments to see how you are all getting on and keep you motivated. It is so important to keep our patients at an ideal body condition as it helps to lessen conditions such as diabetes mellitus, osteoarthritis, heart disease and may more.
When it comes to dental disease prevention is better than cure. It benefits the pet, as it helps reduce the pain and discomfort of dental disease. It also improves the quality of the owner’s life as it prevents halitosis that can sadly affect the closeness of our relationship with our pets.
Why not come and get some helpful advice before you pet needs dental work that may require anaesthetics and cost.
Senior Pet Clinics
As our pets are living longer we are seeing more age related changes in them. Some of these can be slowed down by managing lifestyles and the use of non-drug nutraceuticals.
Come and find out how we can support our golden oldies and make their lives and heath as high quality as possible.
We are an independently run veterinary practice; owned and managed by a local vet and her family who have lived in the South Woodham Ferrers area for nearly twenty years.
Crouch Vale Vets opened in January 2011, we now have one vet – Aisling and three RVNs – Alicia, Chelsi and Jess.
And not forgetting Kirsty, our receptionist.
Aisling is a Local Veterinary Inspector and is able to carry out the requirements for the Pet Passport Scheme and other small animal exports. We have digital x-rays, a state of the art operating theatre, and a laboratory that can offer a full range of tests on-site, meaning same-day test results and prompt commencement of treatment.
As our nurses are fully qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses, they are able to offer first-line triage and support, often negating the need to make an appointment with a vet.
