Care for the backyard pet

Smallholdings and backyard pets are becoming far more commonplace, but good veterinary care for these wonderful creatures has always been more difficult to come by. Some companion animal and some production animal practices claim that they are not the best place for veterinary care as they are not set up to provide the required assistance.

At Minster Veterinary Centre in Nottinghamshire, we offer a wide range of services for most species that can be found on small holdings and backyard plots across the region. We can arrange for visits to you or consultation at a suitable surgery (where movement restrictions and practicality allow). We can offer help and advice on basic requirements and needs, healthcare plans and dealing with illnesses if and when they arise.


Emergency help for backyard pets

If you have a sick pet you can call your nearest branch for assistance. They will either put you in contact with one of our vets for advice, or ask our large animal department to call and arrange a visit. Out of office hours our own staff provide 24 hour emergency cover, just call any of our numbers and leave a message on the answering service with your contact details and a vet will call you back as soon as possible.

Planning for a healthy future

Minster Veterinary Centre encourage high animal welfare at all times and healthcare planning is a cornerstone of animal welfare. We can provide all aspects of healthcare; from routine treatments such as appropriate vaccination, parasite monitoring and prevention for individual animals all the way through to full healthcare plans for flocks, herds, broods, gaggles, rafts, troops, mobs and cohorts! With our new microbiology lab, we are increasing our range of service with in-house parasitology, culture and sensitivity and post-mortem on suitably sized animals we can ensure that the healthcare you receive is optimised for your needs.
