Claremorris Small Animal Practice can provide full health assessments and vaccinations for your pet in County Mayo.
Vaccination protects your pet from a number of serious and highly infectious diseases. An initial course of two injections is needed to get your pet fully covered.
These injections are given two to four weeks apart. An annual booster is then needed to ensure your pets protection.
We will give your pet a full health assessment along with their vaccinations and we will also answer any questions or worries you may have.
Dry food (nuts) is best for your pet. Tinned food and scraps can cause early tooth decay and isn’t nutritionally balanced.
There are many brands of dog and cat food on the market, however, here at Claremorris Small Animal Practice we recommend Propac or Hills Science Plan.
These are superpremium foods and offer your pet a healthy and balanced diet. We also stock a full range of prescription diets.
We recommend that you neuter your pets in County Mayo if you do not wish to breed from them.
Neutering eliminates the risk of unwanted puppies or kittens. It can reduce the risks of cancers such as mammary and prostate cancer and also anti-social behaviour such as marking territory and roaming.
Neutering your pet also increases their chances of a longer and healthier life.
We can offer advice on the best way to exercise your pet in Mayo. We also stock a full range of toys to keep your pet entertained and happy.
Dental disease in dogs and cats is one of the most common conditions we see in our County Mayo practice every day. Just like our own teeth your dogs or cats teeth need regular care.
Brushing your pets teeth along with regular check-ups at the vet can prevent many health problems and contribute to overall well-being. We offer a full range of dentistry services including descaling and dental clinics with our fully qualified nurse Emily.
Protect your pet against fleas, ticks, lice etc. in rural County Mayo, by treating them every month especially during the summer months. Also, it is wise to treat the house and bedding against fleas regularly.
It is important to worm your pet regularly. Worming your pet every 3 months can help keep both them and you healthy, as worms can be passed on to humans.
Microchipping your pet in County Mayo is a positive method of identification that cannot be lost or altered.
While pet collar tags can become lost or damaged, microchips provide permanent identification for your pet.
Due to the presence of a microchip thousands of lost or stolen pets have been reunited with their owners.
A well trained dog is a gem for life. For tips about training your dog, or if your dog or cat has behaviour difficulties please call in to see us for some advice and information.
