Examinations are essential

A thorough examination allows us to pinpoint diseases before they develop. Palpation of your pet from head to toe gives us the opportunity to locate not only unwanted guests but allow us to feel internal organs that may be abnormally enlarged or other serious abnormalities. Touch is the most developed tool in our arsenal of diagnostic instruments. Naturally we do recommend having blood work processed yearly, similar to what your own doctor recommends, as this also provides us with valuable information that can only be retrieved through in-depth analysis.


Prescriptions are available from this Practice. 

You may obtain relevant veterinary medical products from your Veterinary Sureon or ask for a prescription to obtain these medicines from another Veterinary Surgeon or a pharmacy. 

Your Veterinary Surgeon may prescribe relevant veterinary medicinal products only following a clinical assessment of an animal under his or her care. 

A prescription may not be appropriate if your animal is an in-patient or immediate treatment is necessary. 

You will be informed, on request, of the price of any medicine that may be prescribed for your anumal. The general policy of this practice is to re-assess an animal requiring repeat prescriptions for supplies of relevant veterinary medicinal products every 6 months, but this may vary with individual circumstances. The standard charge for a re-examination is £25.00. Further information for prices of medines is available on request.

Out of Hours Fee & Overnight Care of Patients

Please call the clinic on 02870344842 should you require this service. There will be an Out Of Hours consultation fee for this service.

Occasionally, it may be necessary for your pet to stay in the practice overnight and over the weekend due to his/her condition.

Millburn Veterinary Practice does not have a vet or nurse permanently on the premises during the hours of 8pm and 8am on weekdays and between Saturday 1:00pm and Monday 8:00am.

For those patients that are required to stay in the clinic during these hours the number of times the vet or veterinary nurse will check on that in-patient is determined by that pet’s condition. Each case is treated on an individual basis.

You can be assured that, should your pet require it, intensive care will be given during these hours and that the vet or vet nurse will remain with your pet for as long as necessary.

Before leaving your pet at the practice, you will be made aware of the level of supervision that will be provided to your pet, particularly the level of supervision outside normal working hours.
