COVID 19 UPDATE – We have started inviting clients back into the practice however in order to maintain social distancing we are allowing just 4 clients/visitors in, at any one time.  When numbers are reached, you may be offered a pager/buzzer as an alternative and asked to wait outside.  Face coverings are required and if you do not have your own, they can be purchased from us.  Do let us know if you suffer from any conditions that makes you exempt from wearing one.

We kindly request only one member of the family attends, where possible and aim to get for us at the correct time for your appointment to avoid ongoing delays.

Our standard opening hours are back to normal and can be found here

DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE DEMONSTRATING CLINICAL SIGNS OF COVID-19! Thank you once again for your patience.

At Orchard Vets getting a new puppy is as exciting for us as it is for you! Our dedicated nurse team run a four-week course of puppy parties to help introduce your new addition or indeed additions to the practice and to other puppies of similar age.

Early socialisation is key with puppies as they form a template of what is normal to expect in life. The key period for puppy socialisation takes place between 4-12 weeks because this is when your puppy’s brain is highly developing.

We cover a selection of subjects whilst your puppy has fun and plays in a relaxed but controlled environment, each party taking approximately one hour. Topics include:

  • Parasites (Fleas, worms, lungworm and ticks)
  • Nutrition
  • Dental care
  • Neutering
  • Basic training

Our trained staff are on hand to answer any questions you may have at this exciting but sometimes tricky period of development.

It’s important to us that visiting the vets is a positive experience, not a scary or uncomfortable one, so a further benefit of joining these classes is to create a positive bond for both you and your puppy with the practice to enable your family become part of ours, not just at the puppy stage but throughout its life.
