We continue to provide 24/7 emergency care as well as some essential care. Please be aware it may take us longer than usual to respond to queries that you send us.
Please DO NOT turn up at the practice unannounced, you MUST phone first and DO NOT COME TO THE SURGERY IF YOU ARE DEMONSTRATING CLINICAL SIGNS OF COVID-19!

Orchard Vets are proud to be recognised as an Approved Weight Management Centre providing expert advice on nutrition and weight management for your pet.
If your pet is overweight or underweight you can be referred to one of our specially trained nurses to discuss the best feeding regime, exercise requirements and they will come up with a tailored plan to help your pet shed the pounds.
During these clinics we discuss your pet’s current diet, demonstrate how to body condition score, calculate target weights and come up with a plan on how to reach those targets in a controlled way. This will keep your pet at the correct weight, avoiding obesity which can lead to serious health problems such as heart disease, arthritis and diabetes.
If you would like one of our nurses to contact you about your pet’s weight either give us a call or complete the form below, and a member of staff will get back to you.
