Did you know it is now compulsory to microchip your dog?

From 6th April 2016, it was made a legal requirement for all dogs in the UK to be microchipped. This requirement aims to improve animal welfare and reduce the number of lost and stray dogs.

It is a requirement for all puppies to have a microchip and information recorded on government compliant database in the breeder’s name by the time the puppy is 8 weeks old.

When the puppy goes to their new owner, the new keeper must transfer the keepership into their name.

IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP MICROCHIP DETAILS UP TO DATE e.g. when you move house, change your phone number or rehome a pet.

New Cat Clinic Day at Stoke Road

Due to the success and popularity of our cat clinics on Tuesdays at our Stoke Road branch, we are adding an additional cat clinic day every THURSDAY.

Introducing AMANDA ROSS, our new Thursday Cat Clinic Vet
Amanda qualified from Edinburgh University in 2001 and joined us in June 2017. She began her career in a practice in her hometown of Leeds before joining a mixed practice in Bedford in 2002. Initially, she worked with large animals as well as small but gradually moved towards concentrating solely on small animals. She holds an ESVPS Certificate in Small Animal Medicine. She has become particularly interested in feline medicine and is very much looking forward to running the Cat Clinic at the Stoke Road branch on Thursdays. Outside work, Amanda enjoys spending time with her husband and two small children, as well as their cat Jamie and their newest addition to the family, a rehomed tortoise called Margo.
The clinic is open for:
  • Vaccinations, Consultations, Repeat Prescription Checks, General Health Checks, Surgery, Dentistry
And also nurse clinics including:
  • Nail clipping, Minor dematts, Blood Pressure Checks, Diabetic Clinics, Weight Clinics, Microchipping, Second Vaccinations, Behaviour clinics and many more

MK Vet Group Annual Staff BBQ

On the 9th July, our staff and their families attended our annual Staff BBQ. The sun was even in attendance for the day. As well as replenishing our energy with the food, the staff also enjoyed a game of cricket on the day. A well earned day of fun for the team!

MK Vet Group Staff go Dragon Boating!

On Monday 5th June, our staff took to the water in the unfortunate wet and windy weather at Caldecotte Lake. However, the weather did not dampen our spirits.
Sonia, one of our vets and Laura Austin, our head nurse, are keen dragon boaters and put the rest of us through our paces.
The session was thoroughly enjoyed by all and we are hoping to enter a team at an event next year.
