Award Winning Independent Small Animal Practice GHP Animal Wellness Awards 2018 st Trusted Local Vet Clinic 2018 - Suffolk

WANGFORD Veterinary Clinic is a traditional independent small animal practice owned by Veterinary Surgeon, Walter Stöhr. The practice first opened its doors in April 2002 and since then we have grown into a flourishing, award winning business that thoroughly enjoys being part of the local community and all that it has to offer. Walter and vets Boris, Vicki, Catherine and Emma, as well as the rest of the team, share the same deeply held values and practical objectives, believing passionately that how we do things is just as important as what we do. We are very proud to be an

RCVS Accredited Practice which means that users of our services can be assured that our vets and nurses are properly qualified. The accreditation also offers reassurance that the premises at Wangford Vets meet with the highest standards. This all gives

peace of mind to pet owners, helping them to make a more informed choice when choosing a practice.

As well as being suitably qualified, our team have a genuine love of animals, are caring, compassionate and professional. We understand that not all dogs bounce in the door with tails wagging, excited to see us, so in an effort to get to know you and your pets we invite you to pop over for social visits at the quieter times of the day. Your pets can get used to the smells and sounds of reception, meet some of the team, perhaps jump on the scales or even just sit quietly. We have found that this all helps to make visits to see us with a nervous pet less stressful for owner too. Exotics

Exotic animals are becoming increasingly popular and they make very interesting pets. However, these animals often

have specialised care regimes to help them remain healthy and happy. So as well as small animals we have a vet who has a special interest in exotic pets, Catherine Thomas. By exotic we mean any type of bird, reptile, rabbit, rodent, ferret, hedgehog or amphibian. Catherine has been caring for exotic and avian patients for over 8 years, working with some of the UK’s leading exotic animal specialists and is a member of the British Veterinary Zoological Society. Acupuncture and Laser Therapy Wangford Veterinary Clinic

has been offering K-Laser therapy for pets for some time with some very successful results.

Its beneficial uses

include alleviating chronic pain, accelerating healing and rehabilitation plus much, much more! And now we are able to offer acupuncture for dogs with vet Vicki Holland- Howes. Acupuncture too, can have enormous benefits for animals with chronic long-term conditions, such as arthritis and back pain, behavioural problems (often linked to pain), digestive/ bowel problems, incontinence and more. See our website for more information on both K-Laser and Acupuncture www.

24/7 Emergency Cover The team are committed to providing compassionate and consistent care for our client’s pets 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Here your pet will always be treated in familiar surroundings and by Wangford Veterinary Clinic’s own staff. If your pet falls ill or is injured, rest assured we will be there for you, whatever the time of day. Veterinary Nurse Clinics and Consultations A

consultation with a 903731

veterinary surgeon is, of course, always available but we also offer a range of clinics with our experienced, qualified veterinary nursing staff. All our qualified nurses are registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons and have extensive experience in veterinary practice in addition to widespread personal knowledge. There are many advantages

for your pet to receiving regular nurse check-ups. Many nurse services are absolutely free, and the rest considerably less expensive than when done in a consultation with a veterinary surgeon. Nurse clinics include: FREE Weight Management Clinic - The nurse will assess your pet’s body condition and tailor a feeding and exercise regime practical to your pet’s

capabilities and your schedule. FREE Senior Dog Wellness Clinic - Preventative healthcare is vital to help your older pet enjoy full quality of life. FREE Dental Checks and Care Advice, FREE Advice about your new puppies and kittens plus invitations to Puppy Parties. We have our own Pet Health

Club, our own brand products – Wangford Vits, our own premium range of shampoos, toothpastes, vitamins and supplements. In the Community Each year Wangford Veterinary Clinic makes a commitment to helping local people, their pets and the many homeless and unwanted animals in our many overflowing rescue centres. Thanks to the tremendous support of our clients and local people the team raised an astonishing £11,663.43 in 2018 for charity and we are off to a good start already this year with lots of exciting fundraising ideas. This money is raised through events such as Strutt Your Mutt Charity Dog Day and appeals such as Poppies on 4 Paws and Santa Paws. In addition to this we hold in-house events such as Emergency Pet First Aid evenings and even a Pet Blessing at Wangford Church. In addition to this we always support as many local events, such as village fairs and dog shows, as we possibly can.
