We offer this alternative pain management therapy at a number of our practices. Acupuncture is always performed by one of our veterinary surgeons who has undertaken further training in this complementary therapy. Please speak to your vet to learn whether acupuncture might be helpful for your pet, and to book an appointment.

Official Veterinarians are able to issue Animal Health Certificates enabling you to travel with your pet. There are a number of requirements that must be met before travel, so we recommend getting in touch with us as early as possible if you might need your pet to travel abroad.

Our laboratory offers a rapid and efficient service with fast turnaround of results. We have state-of-the-art in-house equipment for an even faster service. In addition to testing for the disease in an unwell patient, we also offer screening tests before your pet undergoes an anaesthetic to ensure that we identify any previously unknown problems, helping us to ensure the anaesthetic is as safe as possible.

We are members of the International Society of Feline Medicine and our practices have been awarded the internationally recognised Cat Friendly Clinic status. We take great care to ensure that our feline friends feel as comfortable as possible in our practices. We have divided an area of the waiting room off to ensure our feline patients are as happy as possible while waiting. We have also divided our working spaces and wards into dog and cat areas separately

Please ask us for help if your cat is particularly nervous visiting the vets.

 

Owner and head vet Anna Marshall-Brown is both a certificate holder and Advanced practitioner of internal medicine. This means she is able to take on many of the more in-depth medical cases and care for them at the practice rather than referring.

We offer 15-minute appointments as a standard for all consultations, giving you plenty of time to discuss your pet’s healthcare and ask any questions you may have. We are able to provide a range of services during the consultation and are always on hand to see your pet in an emergency if necessary.

Taking care of your pet’s teeth is vitally important for their overall health. Just as we brush our teeth each day and get regular dental check-ups, our pets also need regular preventative care, dental check-ups and dental treatment for a range of dental diseases or trauma. We recommend keeping up-to-date with your pet’s dental health and, as with any aspect of their wellbeing, we see prevention as a much better outcome than a cure.

We offer diagnosis imaging with advanced x-rays and ultrasound with Anna Marshall-Brown. These imaging tests are offered as either a day patient service, or as part of the treatment for patients hospitalised with us. Whilst we can tell a lot ourselves we also work with a number of specialists and certificate holders who are able to provide an expert opinion in interpreting these tests.

Flea and Worm control is not only important for your pet’s health but also for public health. We regularly review the need for and frequency of treatment. Many of our chosen preventative treatments are Prescription-Only medicines so we need to have seen your pet in recently to prescribe them.

 

We are always happy to provide advice on the best individual preventative care for your pets, so please call in if you have any questions.

Pet neutering is a hot topic among owners across the UK with some non-medical theories and myths making people doubt the procedure for their dog, cat, rabbit or any other household pet. All Henlow Vets encourage owners to consider neutering their pets for a range of medical and behavioural benefits.

Our nursing team play a central role in the care that we provide you and your pet. In addition to assisting our veterinary surgeons in providing care for your pet, they are also able to answer questions for you directly and provide a range of nurse-led services such as puppy classes, weight management clinics and senior pet care consultations. Speak to us for details of classes and clinics available.

People tend to think it’s only older pets that get ill and therefore younger pets don’t need pet insurance but we know from the patients we see each day that that is not the case. In fact, the younger your pet is when you insure them the better as it means you are less likely to have any existing conditions, which may not be covered by the policy and you can then receive more help covering the cost of any future treatment your pet needs.

If you bring a cat or dog, under 18 months of age, to us for a health check ask about the 5 weeks free insurance offered by Agria. This can offer you peace of mind whilst making your choice about the best cover for your pet.

A microchip is a tiny glass capsule, about the size of a grain of rice, which is filled with electronic components giving a unique 15 digit number. Giving a pet a microchip is a relatively simple procedure which can be performed by a vet or nurse at the practice.

Please contact your veterinary surgeon to discuss your pet’s vaccination requirements along with the possibility of saving money on these and many other benefits by joining our preventative healthcare plan, Henlow Healthy Pets.

To assist your puppy with vital socialisation skills and for behavioural advice, we recommend that you bring your new puppy along to the practice for a complimentary health check so they can meet the team, have a cuddle and see that a trip to the vet is usually a pleasant experience. If we are not currently running our own puppy parties, the team will be able to recommend puppy socialisation classes or dog trainers in the local area.

All of our theatres are fully-equipped to allow our veterinary surgeons to perform your pet’s operation, each with suitable monitoring equipment to ensure your pet’s anaesthetic is as safe as possible. We maintain the highest standards of cleanliness and invest regularly in continuing education for our veterinary surgeons to ensure they are familiar with the latest techniques.

Protect your pet against many life-threatening diseases by vaccinating annually. We embrace modern vaccination protocols to ensure that your pet has the protection they need, whilst ensuring we do not vaccinate more often than is necessary. WSAVA the world small animal veterinary association monitor vaccination of pets on a global level to ensure we are using vaccines to protect and not causing harm.

If you have any worries about your pet’s weight or what they eat, speak to one of the nursing team. Many of our nurses have additional qualifications and undertake regular training in the best ways to feed our pets. We offer free weight checks to any pet being fed on a diet purchased through the practice. We work closely with Hills Pet Nutrition to ensure we can offer clients access to the highest quality foods at an affordable price. Speak to one of the team about the Hills Loyalty Scheme.

Spotting potential health issues before signs appear can help protect your pet from serious disease. Talk to one of the vets or nurses about what testing is available.
