OUT OF HOURS EMERGENCIES


We have had a few queries regarding our out of hours service, so here is what to expect when you have an emergency:


Our normal phone number will give you the number for our answering service, so if you call when the office is closed, please have a pen and paper handy to write down the number.


The answering service deals with a number of veterinary practices although they will know when you phone that you are a client of Flett & Carmichael. 


When you phone they may be busy on other calls. Please hold the line if asked. We know this is hard if you have an emergency but if you put the phone down and try again, you will go back to the end of the queue. It may seem like you are having to wait for a while but usually it will not be longer than a few minutes.


When speaking to the operator, please speak clearly so they can get your correct details to give to the vet. If possible, give them more than one contact number in case the vet cannot get through to you. 


Once you have spoken to the operator they will pass your details to the vet, who will call you back ASAP and discuss the problem or arrange to see your animal.


Thank you for your patience.


Grass Cuttings


We have had a few clients mention to us that members of the public are putting their grass cuttings into horses fields. As much as you may think you are being caring to the horse, it can in fact cause colic and laminitis. 

So please refrain from putting your grass cuttings into fields where horses are being kept.

Thank you


June is National Microchipping Month! This means that every dog and cat without a microchip already, is entitled to have a microchip implanted at a discounted rate of only £18.69!

It only takes a short time to place a microchip so you can stay with your pet whilst its being done.

Dogs and cats are regularly handed in to vets practices and animal shelters all over the UK who have gotten lost. If these animals have a microchip and the details are up to date it means the owner can be tracked quickly and the pet can be returned safely. If they dont it may mean lengthy stays in kennels and they may never find their owners again.

Microchips are a one off expense and once your details are registered with PetLog (our microchipping database) you pay a one off fee of £15 to upgrade to PetLog Premium if you ever want to change their details and you may then amend them as many times as you like.

Please call the surgery on 01856 872859 to book an appointment.



We are delighted that our new extension and alterations to the practice have now been completed. We are very happy that we have so much space in the lovely new rooms. We now have a much larger reception area with a spacious quiet waiting area. We have 2 consulting rooms, a downstairs office, separate imaging room with digital x-ray processor, ultrasound and endoscopy, and a new operating theatre. We are also pleased that our new dog kennel room has been fitted out with warm, quiet Plaztek kennels, allowing us to have a separate hospitalisation room for cats. We now have full use of our stable and prep room, again and more room in our laboratory and utility rooms. Our upstairs gives us plenty of new storage, meeting and office areas.
Once we have settled into the surgery we hope we will soon have an open day to allow clients to have a look around the new facilities.
