We offer a number of additional services to help you maximise your pet’s wellbeing
At Champion Vets we offer a whole host of additional services to help you maximise your pet’s wellbeing. We invest greatly in specialist equipment and search far and wide to find veterinary professionals with extensive knowledge regarding various areas of veterinary medicine.
As a result, we are able to offer a number of services to help you raise a healthy and happy companion. These include:
Behaviour and Training
There is a big difference between a mischievous dog and a disobedient one. It’s all very well having a companion who has to be told twice to heal, but having one who simply disobeys you is a problem.
Should your dog or puppy require obedience training, we have two behaviourists associated with Champion Vets. At our East Kilbride surgery, we have Christina Cass - The Dog Woman - please click here to go to her website or call her on 0141 239 3250.
Our Grangemouth surgery as a strong working relationship with Brian Glasgow and the Grangemouth Dog Club.
As well as offering tips, advice and information to help you train your pet, our East Kilbride behaviourist runs a day care centre from our surgery and our Grangemouth behaviourist has a local dog training centre should you require further guidance.
Acupuncture is the insertion of needles into various parts of the body to stimulate the tissue and activate various healing responses. Depending on the condition your pet is suffering from, the number of needles used will vary.
While this treatment originated in China and was primarily used on humans, today, acupuncture has been proven to have dramatic results on pets’ health when used in conjunction with conventional treatments and medications.
Acupuncture is offered at our Paisley branch by our fully qualified veterinary surgeon Rosemary Fitzgerald or at our other branches by Lesley Herd.
Physiotherapy and Hydrotherapy
Just like humans, pets are at risk of damaging their muscles and joints. In younger animals this is generally the result of injury, and in older pets it can be caused by conditions such as arthritis.
For animals with muscle or joint problems, physiotherapy or hydrotherapy can offer instantaneous relief in some cases.
Agility and Sports Physiotherapy
If you are considering entering your pet into a show or have already started training and your pet has obtained an injury, then agility or sports physiotherapy may be beneficial.
Here at Champion Vets we have great working relationships with a number of animal experts, including the professionals at a local practice nearby called Pet Therapy.
Pet Therapy is run by Lesley Herd who has a number of qualifications in preparing animals for shows and conducting sports physiotherapy for those who have muscle or joint injuries.
If you would like to get in touch with Lesley, please simply call your local surgery and we will put you in touch.
