Cat Friendly Clinics
We all know that some cats find the presence of dogs quite scary
Here at Park View we have consulting times where only cats will be booked in.
This is to try and help our feline friends, who are of a more sensitive disposition, from coming across dogs, whilst visiting our surgery.
This is just one of the steps we have made to gain our 'Cat Friendly Status' awarded by International Cat Care, formerly the Feline Advisory Bureau, annually. Another is our dedicated waiting area, available any time you bring your cat family in to see us.
Please enquire at reception on 01522 683300 if you would like a cat friendly appointment.
Golden Oldies Clinics
Park View Veterinary Hospital’s team of Qualified Veterinary Nurses are delighted to announce our ‘Golden Oldies Clinic’ aimed at Cats over 10 years of age and Dogs over 8 years of age.
You may have noticed subtle changes in your pet, maybe their eating and drinking habits have changed, or they have slowed down a bit and are not as keen to exercise.
We care about your pet’s health and want him/her to enjoy a long and healthy life as much as possible without illness.
During the free 20 minute consult, one of our experienced nurses will perform a full examination of your pet, have a chat with you about their lifestyle and work through a senior pet booklet (which we ask you to complete the questionnaire prior to the appointment). This will allow us to establish your pet’s general health and help pinpoint any areas of concern that you may have.*
* Please note that this is a free discussion with one of our Qualified Veterinary Nurses on senior pet healthcare, not for any other problems or on-going issues.
For further details please contact the surgery on 01522 683300
These can be arranged through reception, however it is stressed that most animals receive a more comprehensive examination at the hospital, where we have a full range of treatments and diagnostic tools.
If you are unable to transport your pet to the surgery, we provide a nurse collection and delivery service. For both these services please contact our surgery early in the morning, so provision can be made during the working day to accommodate you.
Admissions for surgery or clinical procedures
Monday - Friday: 8.00am - 9.00am
Please note that your pet will be checked in by a vet or a nurse and this may incur a short wait.
Discharges after surgery are usually from 4.00pm by appointment.
Ward rounds take place at 7.45am and at 6.45pm, during which inpatients are handed over from a PVVH veterinary surgeon to a Vets Now veterinary surgeon and vice versa, thus ensuring a continuity of care.
Every morning each in-patient is re-examined and their treatment plan is re-assessed, therefore, please telephone after 10.00am for an update, as we treat the pets before updating the computer for the reception team!
Many owners like to visit their pet, if it is hospitalised. This can be of benefit but needs to be by prior arrangement. Please contact the surgery to arrange a visit and/or a time to speak to a veterinary surgeon about your pet’s progress. Call us on 01522 683300.

Prescriptions and Special Diets
If your pet is on long term medication we will need to examine him/her on a regular basis.
Your veterinary surgeon will advise you as to how frequently this needs to be (it will be at least once every 3 months).
If you need more medication or food between check ups then please ring the surgery after 10am to place your order and let the surgery have 48 hours notice prior to collection to make sure your treatment is ready.
Written prescriptions are available on request (please give 48 hours notice).
