Consultations at Blackwater Vets:

At Blackwater Vets the consultation experience for our clients and their pets should be seamless and stress free.

We have dog friendly scales, healthy treats in every waiting room and feline only areas so that cats can feel safe whilst waiting for their appointment.

During the consultation you can explain to your vet what is wrong.   She will clinically examine your pet and may ask further questions.  At the end of the consultation the vet will fully explain her findings and will offer possible treatment options. Estimated costs will be discussed so that the best treatment plan can be adopted.  Additionally all members of our loyalty health plan will receive 10% off all medications, consultations, treatments flea and worm treatments, procedures and blood tests !  For more information, for our COVID risk prevention policies or to join the health plan, please call our friendly reception on 01206 384999
