We Care
Because You Care

At Crescent Vets, we offer a range of services that can be found listed below – if you have any questions about the services we offer, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Laser Therapy for Pets:

Laser Therapy is a non-invasive, drug free treatment that targets pain and inflammation, making it perfect for helping with arthritis, wound healing and much more. It uses infra-red light to increase circulation whilst drawing water and oxygen to the area. This encourages healing and reduces inflammation, muscle spasms, swelling and pain. If you would like more information, please call the surgery.

Euthanasia and Bereavement:

If the worst comes to pass and euthanasia has to be considered for your pet, we have a special bereavement room that can be used for privacy or if you prefer a home visit can be organised. The choice of euthanasia can be hard and a decision will only be made after a consultation between you and your vet.

After the procedure, your vet will discuss your choices that are available at consultation or at a later date if preferred. The choices are;

  • Home burial

  • Routine cremation at a professional pet crematorium

  • Individual cremation where your pet’s ashes will be returned to you in a casket of your choice

We also offer the following:

  • Vaccinations and health checks

  • Puppy and kitten checks – we provide advice on looking after your new family member including feeding, training, neutering, vaccinations and preventative treatments

  • Weight checks

  • Geriatric pet checks – to ensure your old friends are enjoying their twilight years to the maximum

  • Flea and worming advice

  • Neutering

  • Anal gland emptying – for pets that have ongoing issues with them

  • Diagnostic tests

  • Ultrasound scanning

If you are considering breeding your dog, there are important things you must consider first:

  • Can you spend 8 weeks or more caring for a litter?

  • Do you have suitable space for them?

  • Can you afford vet visits for the litter and bitch?

  • Do you have enough knowledge to help during whelping if needed?

  • Can you afford the cost of a caesarean if it is needed?

  • Can you cope with a large litter?

  • Do you have enough knowledge to help raise a litter?

  • Are you capable to find good homes for the litter?

  • Will you be able to take back any puppies if needed?

If, after going through the above questions, you still feel confident in breeding then you have to keep in mind the Kennel Club’s guide on responsible dog breeding.

  • Each litter should be an improvement on the parents

  • Must plan in advance so that each puppy will be bred in a good environment

  • Careful consideration must be given to health issues and soundness

  • Responsibility must be held for the puppies you breed

  • Ensure the dam and sire are healthy and are up to date with vaccinations

We offer advice about the birth and an ultrasound to determine pregnancy in the bitch. It is recommended that a check-up is had after birth on both the litter and the bitch. All puppies must be microchipped before leaving to new homes, as per the law.

Microchipping is compulsory for all dogs from the age of 8 weeks. It provides a form of identification which has your details stored on a UK wide database should your pet get lost or stolen. A microchip is the size of a small grain of rice and is injected under the skin between your pets shoulder blades. Most vets, animal charities, police stations and dog wardens have scanners that can identify the chip number thus enabling them to look up the owners details on the database.

A Happy Outcome

Due to the microchip details being registered on the database, two little dogs were happily reunited with their owner. They were found running loose in the High Street of Tewkesbury and brought into us for scanning. Amazingly they had been missing for 6 weeks and came from Abergavenney in Wales. This is why it is important to keep your details up to date should you move or change phone number.

Neutering Your Pet

The surgical neutering procedure in the female is called ovariohysterectomy or spay and involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus under general anaesthesia. The procedure for males is called castration and involves the removal of the testicles under anaesthesia.
We take great care that your pet is not discomforted by the procedure and provide appropriate pain relief at the time of surgery and afterwards at home. Healing takes about 10 days and thereafter your pet should be back to normal activity again.
If you would like to arrange for your pet to be neutered, please give us a call.

Our recommendations are based on our experience, the latest clinical research and what is best for your pet. We all have pets of our own and really understand what a huge part they play in your life. As a team we have a wide range of experience and we work with you to keep your pet as fit and healthy as we can for the whole of its life.

Often the speed of reaching a correct diagnosis is essential to the well-being of your pet and we have extensive in-house diagnostics including laboratory and imagining facilities.

We have 15 minutes appointment slots (or longer) to ensure that your pet gets the best care and attention and gives us the best possible opportunity to identify what is wrong. This allows us to give you our full attention whilst keeping our prices competitive compared to those that give less time.

We feel that whilst an annual vaccination is important as a preventative against infectious diseases, the health check that accompanies it is even more important for the long-term welfare of your pet. Their health will be monitored from nose to tail and advice given to keep them in optimum condition. Any problems treated early offer the best chance of a successful outcome.

Our terms require payment in full of any treatment, medicine, operation or prescription at the time. Where someone else is either collecting your pet or medicines for you then payment must have been made beforehand or paid for at the time of collection. We accept credit/debit cards, cash and contactless payments. We also take payments over the telephone.

We will provide estimates for treatment if required but please understand that complications or unforeseen circumstances could arise which may require additional treatment and will be billed accordingly.

If your pet is insured (which we highly recommended) the responsibility of payment of fees remains with the client and you will be asked to pay for any treatment your pet receives. You will then be able to claim the fees directly from your insurer.

We are required by our governing body to ensure that all drugs that we dispense have been stored at the correct temperature even during transportation. We are therefore unable to refund any drugs that have been removed from the premises. Whilst we realise that this might be very annoying, we hope you will appreciate that it will protect you from receiving drugs that may have been damaged or stored incorrectly.

Many of the drugs we dispense can only be supplied to you if your animal is under our care. For most conditions this will mean it is necessary for the vet to examine your pet prior to prescribing a drug for the first time. After the initial consultation, should your pet require a repeat prescription, we will need 24 hours’ notice so that we can check the clinical notes and make sure we have the correct drugs available. For ongoing conditions that require continual medication, we will need to see your pet every 3-6 months for a health check.

Certain flea and worm products require your pet to have been seen by us within the last 12 months. If your pet hasn’t been seen they will need to see a vet before these products can be dispensed. You must be over 16 to collect prescriptions.
