Pets, just like humans, benefit from regular health checks. Unlike humans, pets generally cannot communicate when they are unwell, unless they exhibit certain behaviours. Often this is when conditions have progressed or worsened – prevention is usually always better than cure.

A qualified vet can help you to understand pet behaviour, in consultation with you, with a view to maintaining tip-top health. If you are looking for vets in Stotfold, consider visiting our practice in Henlow for stellar service and proper care of your beloved pets.

What are some reasons for visiting a vet?

Here is a list of possible reasons for visiting a vet:

Regular check-ups

Your pets need routine check-ups that will help you to understand their overall health. A vet can make helpful suggestions for the maintenance and improvement of health in your pets, for example supplements to consider, overall diet, exercise and more. A vet will also suggest getting some additional tests done for your pet so that if the need arises, a treatment can be performed.


A vet helps with vaccinations, ensuring your pets are protected as necessary.

Diagnosis of disease

Vets can diagnose common diseases in pets; often this does require further testing, but a visit to your local veterinary surgery is often the first step.

Understanding behaviour

Vets generally can read body language in pets and help to understand or paint a picture as to why they may be acting in certain ways. This is particularly important with behavioural issues, for example, resource guarding in dogs.

If you want to visit a vet in Stotfold, you should contact Henlow Vets,  best known for our exceptional veterinary service.
