Lara is a lovely young Golden Retriever that has been coming for hydrotherapy treatment in order to see if it would help improve the left fore leg lameness that she has had intermittently for a couple of months. Investigations indicated possible ligament or soft tissue damage in her shoulder, and hydrotherapy can help to regain the confidence to strengthen muscle and mobilize joints without experiencing further discomfort whilst the tissues repair.

Lara has thoroughly enjoyed her hydro sessions, and fortunately they seemed to have done the trick. After 10 sessions Lara’s lameness has all but disappeared, she no longer needs pain medication, and her owners have been able to gradually let her return back to normal activity.

Lara will need to continue coming for a little while longer, but as you can see from the pictures, I’m sure she doesn’t mind.

Welcome to our Heathcote Surgery, our latest addition to the Avonvale family which is located in the Whitnash area of Leamington Spa. It has been a veterinary centre at this site since the 1970’s and was extended and totally refurbished in 2007.

The practice provides a comprehensive range of veterinary services for your pets, in a friendly and caring environment. Here at Heathcote, we advocate preventative care to keep your pets healthy and happy. The practice is fully equipped with all the necessary modern facilities to enable thorough investigation of challenging cases should your pet require this: ultrasound, x-ray, diagnostic laboratory and surgical facilities as well as having separate dog and cat wards. Most importantly we have a great team of compassionate vets and nurses with a wealth of experience and friendly, caring support staff who all consistently provide high quality care.

If your pet needs ongoing intensive care treatment or for emergencies at night or weekends, we can rely on our own 24-hour hospital unit in Warwick where there is nursing care throughout the night. We even have an animal ambulance to safely transfer patients for overnight care if required.

Please contact the surgery on 01926 337790 and we will arrange an appointment at a convenient time for you.

Monday – Friday 8.30am to 7pm

Planning for your junior pet’s healthcare

petclub3At Avonvale we understand the special relationship people have with their pets and we aim to provide the best possible healthcare in a friendly and welcoming environment.

We believe a proactive preventive approach to your pet’s health is far better than waiting until he or she is ill or suffering to put things right. Regular health checks and early diagnosis of potential health issues will help your pet enjoy a long and comfortable life.

Our Junior Pet Club is a convenient and affordable way to protect your pet and your family against preventable diseases and discomfort by making sure your pet’s vaccinations, flea, worm and parasite treatments are up to date.

We have teamed up with Animal Healthcare Company who administer our Pet Club plans and collect your direct debits on our behalf. This leaves us free to concentrate on looking after your pets.

Joining our Junior Pet Club is easy. Call into our surgeries with your bank details and complete a direct debit form.

Our Pet Club plan is not a pet insurance policy. It spreads the cost of routine preventive pet care at the recommended annual doses which is not covered in standard pet insurance policies, however it does not cover the costs of veterinary care for unexpected illness or injury to your pet. We recommend taking out separate pet insurance for this.
