Our “SHEPARD” Rule!

  • Safety! For the safety of everyone and everything always bring your pet on a leash or in a crate.
  • Honesty! Expectations! We need you to be completely honest with us. We expect you to follow the agreed treatment regime.
  • Preparedness! We also need you to write down all your concerns and your pet’s signs of illness so that when you come you won’t forget any detail. If seeking a second opinion or transferring to us, please ensure that all your vet records are transferred to us well before the appointment so we have a chance to read them over before we meet.
  • Ability! If you can’t follow the treatment regime properly then you need to tell us! If your pet does not get their treatments correctly then they won’t get better or they will relapse!
