From today 24/3/20 - we will no longer be able to offer routine services. We (or any veterinary surgeries in the UK) are not be able to offer: neutering, vaccinations including second vaccinations, any routine operations or  routine appointments.  By law, we are only allowed to see emergency cases.  If you have an animal that is in urgent need of veterinary attention please phone the surgery and we will assess the situation. 
 
The safety of our clients and staff is paramount with the current situation we need to do everything we can. Always phone us first. If you have been given permission to attend then please phone the surgery to say that you have arrived in our car park. If our phones are busy we will pop back and foward to the car park to check who has arrived.

We are now requesting that you stay in the car park (unless there are exceptional circumstances) while we examine your animal inside the surgery. We will come to the car park to collect your pet and return them once they have been examined. Discussion will either occur at a 2m distance or over the telephone.  Our front door will now be locked at all times.  Please phone us when you arrive.

For repeat prescriptions including flea and worming treatment, please phone in advance, we will ask you to pay over the phone. When you arrive to pick the prescription up, please could you phone us again and we will bring it to the car park to you, so you do not need to enter the surgery.

Please do not come if you have the corona virus symptoms - a continuous new cough or a high temperature.  If your animal is ill in these circumstances please telephone us.
 
If you have an animal with a non-urgent problem, with the current corona virus state of emergency it may be suitable to send us an email with a picture. We will then phone you back and discuss the case.  The cost of this will be £23 payable before speaking to the vet.  Not all problems can be dealt with in this way, and it is never as thorough as examing the animal.  There are lots of things we can not do this way such as chest auscultation, abdominal palpation and any diagnostic tests.  For all urgent cases continue to ring us as our email is not checked on an emergency basis.
 
The situation changes on a daily basis so please bear with us. Please check our facebook page as we will be updating this when we need too. The coming months are going to present new challenges every day, as the government says we must all work together, we appreciate your patience and continued support.

Microchipping for Pets in Llanelli

Microchips can be inserted from a young age and are commonly done at the time of initial vaccinations as a puppy or kitten. They can also be placed when your pet is under anaesthetic for another procedure such as a spay, castrate or dental.

Microchips are essential in re-uniting you with your pet should they get lost or stolen. A microchip is a small implant (the size of a grain of rice) which is used to identify your pet by giving it a unique number for the rest of its life. The microchip is inserted under skin at the back of the neck and can be scanned to reveal your pet’s unique number. Microchips are used to help identify a wide range of animals from cats and dogs to horses and even some birds and reptiles!

Microchips are a fast way to allow the return of lost pets to their owners as when handed in to any vet practice, rescue centre or pound the first thing to be done will be to scan the pet looking for a chip. When a microchip is found the unique number enables them to find an owners address and contact details (on a national database) so that owners can be informed their pet has been found. Having accurate contact details on a microchip is the only way that an owner can be found, so when you have your pet chipped make sure you fill out the form in as much detail as possible with as many contact numbers as possible. Should you move or any details change, the microchip company should be contacted as soon as possible so that the database can be updated.

With over 126,000 dogs being handled by local authorities last year and 7,500 having to be euthanased as owners could not be located microchipping really could save your pets life!
