Rabbit Awareness Week Success at Park View Veterinary Hospital North Hykeham Lincoln - June 2019 

RAWPark View Vets always runs a Rabbit Awareness Week in June in line with the national event supported by a leading rabbit food supplier - you can find out more at the website - https://www.rabbitawarenessweek.co.uk/

Our RVN Rabbit & Guinea Pig special interest nurse, Sally, and RVN  Jennie, who joined Sally this year with the dedicated clinics, were both delighted with this year’s response  - ‘’normally we run clinics over one week, but they were massively oversubscribed and we had to extend the number of clinics we offered to the whole of June’’ said Sally.

Sally was delighted with the not only the number of rabbits that came to see us but also how owners were actively engaging with their pets as family members, from taking a serious interest in their welfare, feeding them the right food, making sure they had enough space to hope around in and most importantly recognising the need for company .

The free clinics lasted approximately 20 minutes and included a mini health check, nail clipping, a worksheet on looking after rabbits and their needs, as well as a great value freebie takeaway bag with the treats and helpful information.

RabbitJennie added that they were pleased with how many owners proactively asked about our pet care plan, wanted to insure their bunnies and get them neutered.

"Clients actually asked me what was the best monthly care plan for their rabbits, and if they could get them insured. We also offered a 10% discount voucher to help with neutering and the all important RVHD2 vaccination protection. So now we have happy healthy bunnies and lovely responsible owners.  It’s been a great rabbit awareness week, well, month. Here’s to a hopping good one in 2020 too"

Spring Fete

WEF 1st April 2019 - Introduction Of A Claim Form Processing Fee

From the 1st April 2019 we are introducing a fee to cover thWEF 1st April 2019 - Introduction Of A Claim Form Processing Feee administration costs involved with processing insurance claims. This is something we have resisted doing for a long time, however due to the large number of insurance claims that we now process, we have decided that in order to cover postage, photocopying, and staff time in completing the forms it has become a necessity.

The charges will be as follows: 

  • First claim for a new condition £25.00
  • Continuation claim for an ongoing condition £10.50 a quarter


  1. Dog has road traffic accident and is seen by out of hours by Vets Now, then has a fracture repair with the Park View Staff, and a claim is processed for the fracture with us. This is a New Claim to the Park View Staff and will incur a fee of £25.00
  2. Cat is diagnosed with Diabetes and requires life time treatment with insulin. The first claim will incur a charge of £25.00 and then every three months onwards a fee of £10.50 for continuation forms. This amounts to a total of £56.50 in charges for the first year and then £42.00 per annum.
  3. Dog has a skin allergy and is on life long treatment, which started three years ago and the client is paying £10.50 per quarter for the continuation forms, but then he develops a mass which requires surgery and the client wishes to claim for that also. The new claim incurs a charge of £25.00 but assuming the client claims for the skin condition and the mass removal on the same form, the quarter that the claim falls in will cost £25.00 rather the £10.50 - not both.

The reason we have decided to introduce a quarterly charge rather than a charge per claim form is that most clients are collecting long term medication every three months and having a repeat prescription consultation at the same time. However, a few clients submit forms every month, and we wish to encourage them to submit forms regularly and will not penalise them by charging per form.

Clients on our Pet Care Plan will receive a 10% discount.

If you have any further queries regarding this please speak to a member of staff, and thank you in advance for your understanding in this matter.

February 2019 - Can you afford up to a £2000 fine?

This could happen if your dog is not secured properly in your vehicle. In addition if you are involved in an accident and your dog is not suitably restrained you may be invalidating your insurance. Best be safe, secure your dog. Check Now.

Annual BoostersAnnual Boosters

Vaccination for your pet is very important in protecting them from serious diseases, annual boosters keep their immunity up to date. If boosters are missed then a full course of vaccination has to start again. Generally if you are boarding your pet you will find the business requires to see your pet's vaccinations records, always check well in advance with the establishment what they may require. 

You can always check with us when your pet's boosters are due by calling us on 01522 683300 or popping into Reception or asking the Vet when you in a consult.

Whilst, as a courtesy, we try and send annual reminders, they may get missed or lost and it is ultimately the responsibility of the owner to ensure their pet is up to date with its immunity coverage.

 New Chosen Charity For The YearNew Chosen Charity For The Year

Park View vets are pleased to announce that their chosen charity of the year is Petsavers - a charity set up as part of the British Small Animal Veterinary Association, dedicated to improving the health of pets by relieving the distress and pain caused by diseases, so that our pets can enjoy longer, fuller and healthier lives.

Park View Vets Lincoln - New Branch Surgery Image

The end of 2017 should see us welcoming new and existing clients to our brand new branch surgery, located in Witham St Hughs, just off the A46 Newark Road and approximately 5 miles south of our North Hykeham Hospital site. 

Park View Vets Lincoln - New Branch Surgery ImageBuilding work has commenced and we will be part of a double unit with the other side being a cafe. The site sits behind the village Cooperative store and adjacent to the village school. Whilst Witham St Hughs has been a small hamlet it is now a rapidly growing village with new homes being built and other retail outlets. It is still 'in the country' but has very close links to the main roads and towns of Newark and Lincoln are approximately half an hour away in either direction.
The Park View Witham St Hughs branch surgery will have two consult rooms and be manned to enable morning and afternoon surgeries with referrals for hospital treatments and tests back at our main hospital site as needed. We hope to issue regular prescriptions and sell our range of foods and toys for all your pets there too.
We look forward to extending our services, 'putting you and your pet, at the heart of everything we do'. More information will be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime please call us on 01522 683300 if you have any questions or would like more information.
