Portly Pets Clinic

Remember, an abundance of food over the holidays adds to our waistline. This is also the case for our pets! Dawn & Donna will be running free weight watchers clinics in the New Year, so pop into the surgery one afternoon with your pet for a weigh-in.


Repeat Prescriptions

Is your pet on medication or a special diet? Please ensure you have enough to last over Christmas & New Year as our suppliers will not be making deliveries as often over the holidays.


Christmas Shop

Don’t forget your pets this Christmas! We have stocked some special Christmas-themed presents, as well as our usual treats and toys.

Thank you!

We’d like to thank everyone for their kind cards & gifts. We have enough chocolates & biscuits to last us until summer!   Thank you!


New Arrivals!

Smokey the Kitten

On Halloween we were brought in a kitten who was found by a member of the public who was stopped by another driver who told him he had a cat sitting in his wheel arch!


When we saw Smokey he got a full health check and we found him to have burns on all his paws and on his back legs too.


He was very sore but also very brave and even let us soak his feet and put on bandages!


After a few days intense treatment with us, the lovely people at Cat’s Protection took him in to a foster home and managed his burns with a special burns cream and antibiotics.


After two months recovery we’re pleased to say his feet have healed brilliantly and he moved in to his new “Forever” home.


Even after all his treatment he still loves a cuddle and a pose for the camera.  Good luck in your new home Smokey and I’m sure your new family will love you as much as we do!
