Veterinary Services


Your pet is part of your family and that is why we recommend they visit us for a check up every years to ensure they are fit and healthy at all times.

Health Checks and Vaccinations

Owning a pet is an exciting experience especially if it is a new pet.  Just like us,  they need lots of care and attention while they’re young to ensure they’re healthy and happy.

Dental Hygiene

You may be surprised to discover that your pets teeth are similar to yours.  They lose their milk teeth, are susceptible to gum disease and should have a check up every year.

Parasite Control

Here at Blackwater vets we can provide you with advice and preventative measures to stop the discomfort and problems caused to your pets by worms and fleas.

Pet Travel

You should begin the process for travel at least three or four months before you are due to leave to allow time for preparation.


Microchipping gives you peace of mind that your pet can be easily identifiable if lost or stolen. Microchipping is a quick injection to the back of your pet’s shoulder blades.


You may already know that neutering prevents animals from falling pregnant. However, did you know that there are a number of other benefits to having your pet de-sexed?

Nurse Appointments

Our highly trained experienced nurses help with a wide range of problems and also give support and monitoring for you and to your pet.

 Our clinic is fully equipped to carry out most necessary surgical and diagnostic procedures and uses the safest possible anaesthetic regimes and equipment.
