Here at Kensington Veterinary Clinic, we strongly believe that prevention is better than cure.We can provide advice and follow up information as required on a variety of excellent and highly effective flea, heartworm and intestinal worming preparations.
It is extremely important to us that when you entrust your pet to us we give them the best possible care. This is especially important when your pet is anaesthetised. We have an excellent anaesthetic protocol that involves constant monitoring of heart rate, expired carbon dioxide, blood oxygenation, respiratory rate and depth of anaesthesia. Whilst under veterinarian supervision our anaesthetics are monitored by qualified and experienced nurses . Post surgery we will continue to monitor your pet until it is ready to go home. All surgical patients are given pain relief.
We also have extensive in-house facilities which include radiology, dental care, diagnosis of skin problems, urinalysis, intravenous fluid administration, surgery and hospitalisation. We only use the best modern and up-to-date equipment.
We believe that we can offer you and your pet the best care by using referrals where appropriate. For this reason our pathology tests are all run and interpreted by specialist pathologists and we refer to a select group of specialist surgeons and internal medicine physicians when required.
Julie Barber and Frances Hammer are our Animal Behaviour Consultants. They provide in home advice for any behaviour problems your pet may be experiencing. They are very experienced in animal behaviour and are both qualified Delta Society Canine Good Citizen instructors. We also can provide referral to specialised Veterinary Behaviourists when required.
Dog & Cat Scales
All clients are welcome to come in at any time and use our dog or cat scales to keep an eye on their pet's weight. We are also able to provide a weight loss programme for your pet should you be concerned that it is becoming a little "fluffy".
You are what you eat and for this reason we stock and recommend super premium pet foods. There are many well researched reasons to feed high quality food appropriate for your pet's age and individual nutritional requirements. We also stock a large range of veterinary specific diets.
Puppy preschool is a great way to begin a life long bond with your dog. The socialisation period for a puppy is between 6 and 16 weeks of age. During this period it is very important that the pup is exposed to as many positive experiences as possible, as this will shape its future behaviour. Puppy preschool is a great way for your puppy to have fun and learn about the big wide world; and for you to learn to communicate with your pup. Julie Barber runs our puppy classes with her assistant Frances Hammer who is also a qualified Delta Society instructor.
You'll find more info on our Puppy Preschool page.
