Emma - Jayne Rudkin
We now are offering an in-house physiotherapy service run by Emma - Jayne who has a BSC hons in Veterinary physiotherapy.
In her words 'Veterinary Physiotherapy aims to provide a treatment that is non-invasive supporting musculoskeletal, neurological conditions as well as post and pre-operative conditions using an individually developed treatment plan. It also provides support for senior pets that have begun to struggle with their daily routine. Veterinary Physiotherapy can provide support for every individual whether it is performance enhancement or maintenance care, we aim to provide each animal with a high-quality life.'
We want to become an integral part of our local community. Having worked in other small practices, we understand the importance to pet owners of being able to build a lasting relationship with their veterinary team. We feel the best place for a practice is within the heart of the community.
We will always do the right thing for you and your pets. We will always give you our honest opinion on treatment options and will be completely transparent on pricing. Every pet has different needs and there is no 'one size fits all' so we will tailor our medicine and preventative care to your pet.
Being a small company ourselves we are very keen to support local business. We will only use people we know and trust. We have been in Derbyshire for many years now and have built strong relationships with local companies. The pet cremation service we use is one we have known personally for years.
We will do all we can to ensure your pet is not scared when coming to the vets. We will provide longer appointments for pets that need a bit more time. Late admission appointments will reduce stress for nervous pets that need to stay with us for procedures.
We want to look after our environment for all the animals that inhabit it. We will recycle everything we can and use recycled/recyclable products wherever possible. Our new building has an advanced heat exchange system reducing environmental impact.
We are able to provide a first opinion surgery and although this means we can do most things, for more advanced procedures your pet may need to be referred for further treatment. We work with local specialists and will always use a service we can discuss cases easily with.
