Small Animal Vets

They say the best things come in small packages – a phrase many pet owners can relate to. Whether it’s a cat or a dog, a hamster or a guinea pig, you’ll want to make sure that they’re with you for as long as possible. And that means occasional trips to the vets. Here at Riverside Veterinary Centre, we have made the choice to focus on pets, great and small.

Our small animal vets are specialists, so you can be sure your pet’s in the safest of hands. From check-ups to emergency trips, they’ll get the best care possible. Our committed team and great facilities mean we can offer a comprehensive range of veterinary services from routine vaccinations to more specialist procedures.


What is a small animal vet?

When most people hear the term small animal vet, they think of hamsters, guinea pigs, and rats or mice. While we do treat these animals, small animals are mainly house pets such as cats, rabbits, birds, reptiles and dogs. We help with anything from vaccinations, check-ups, dentistry, neutering, surgery, prescription services, and even behaviour.

Here at Riverside Veterinary Centre, we believe that a good relationship between our clients and our veterinary team play a vital role in the overall success in your pets’ treatment. Our vets always have a very welcoming atmosphere along with the reassurance that the vet is aware of your pet’s previous medical problems and prescriptions. If you would like to find out more call us today on 01789 299 455.

What can small animal vets treat?

Small animal vets diagnose diseases and other health problems in pets. They will also give vaccinations, prescribe medicine, perform surgeries and treat wounds. Additionally, small animal vets communicate with the owners of the pets. Here at Riverside Veterinary Centre we believe that communication is key and pride ourselves on our dedication to the animals and their owners. We understand that coming to the vets can be a nerve-racking experience for both the pet and the owner.
