We apologise for the inconvenience but for everyone’s safety we are not allowing clients in to the practice. This will remain the case to at minimum the 16th of August. We please ask that you drop your pet off at the door. Please ensure that all your contact details are up to date and that you stay closeby the practice for the duration of the consultation incase the vet needs to contact you regarding your pet.
We regularly check the latest government guidance, which means we may have to limit some contact to emergencies only.
If you are ill or self isolating and your pet needs to be seen, it is important that you do not attend the practice. Please ask someone else to bring in your pet as you could be risking the health of people around you.
We are still able to take orders for food and medication. Please call or email the practice if you would like to order anything. As we are very busy it may take 24 hours before we can help you with your request or enquiry.
The practice opened in 2007 in the S10 area of Sheffield, and ever since our staff have been dedicated to good service for our clients, and outstanding care for our patients.

We have a confirmed case of lungworm in the Bolehill area of Sheffield. We therefore advise ALL dog owners to use protection against lungworm. Protection comes in the form of a liquid product containing Moxidectin, which prevents infection or in the form of a tablet containing milbemycin, which treats the infection.
Please be vigilant and contact us with any worries.
The lungworm (Angiostrongylus vasorum) is a parasite that can cause serious health problems in dogs and can even be fatal if not diagnosed and treated. The parasite is known to spread quickly.
Lungworm infections can result in a number of different signs, which may easily be confused with other illnesses, but improved detection methods including blood test and poo sampling mean more and more cases are now being confirmed. Lungworm is now endemic throughout much of the UK and is NOT known to infect humans.
POSSIBLE SYMPTOMS OF LUNGWORM
1 Breathing problems: Coughing and tiring easily
2 Poor blood clotting: Excessive bleeding from even minor cuts or wounds, nose bleeds, bleeding into the eye or anaemia (paleness around the eyes and gums)
3: General sickness: Weight loss, poor appetite, vomiting and diarrhoea, depression, lethargy
4: Seizures (fits)
