Have a happy and healthy 2019

In January, many of us focus on getting organised and healthy – something we can also extend to our pets! Make 2019 the year of regular health-checks to keep your pet happy and healthy.

While we’re experts in handling emergencies, our caring teams also offer routine screenings, thorough checks, and expert advice on every aspect of your pet’s health. For example, we offer:


Dental checks

Dental disease is one of the most common diseases found in animals and is easily prevented. However, if left untreated, the disease can develop and spread to other parts of the body, which can cause serious health problems such as heart disease.

Pets, like people, form plaque and tartar on their teeth and need to have them checked by a professional once every six months.

At Medivet we offer dental radiography, which can detect hidden lesions helping to preserve teeth and prevent pain.

Speak to your local Medivet practice to book your complimentary dental check.

Screening for older pets

We want to give you peace of mind and ensure that older pets stay fit and healthy.

We offer complimentary health checks for your senior pet as well as complimentary urine screening for pets over eight years old.

This helps us to detect common conditions affecting older pets, such as diabetes. 

Speak to your local Medivet practice to book your complimentary screening.




Puppy and kitten checks

There’s so much to learn when you get a new puppy or kitten, it can be overwhelming knowing what they need in order to thrive.

Did you know that the best time to screen for orthopaedic problems, such as elbow or hip dysplasia, is during a puppy or kitten’s development? To help, we offer complimentary puppy and kitten health checks.

During these, we can answer any questions you might have, offer expert advice and tips, as well as a top-to-tail check.

Medivet Healthcare Plan

It’s also worth knowing that the Medivet Healthcare Plan includes a free health check every six months, as well as regular flea and worming treatments and many other benefits.

It’s a great way to focus on the regular care that your pet needs to stay fit and healthy.
