Weight Loss programme Grove Vets

Grove Vets Ballymena offer a free weight loss programme for pets where, owners can bring their pets to take part in the clinic and in turn help improve their overall health.

You may not know that if a pet is as little as 20% overweight, it will subsequently have an increased risk of suffering from diabetes, arthritis and heart disease. Grove Vets use Hill’s weight loss products which are nutritionally balanced pet food designed for pets who are overweight.

If you think your pet may be over weight you can bring them along to the free weight loss clinic where they will be accessed, weighed and Janice, our qualified veterinarian nurse will design a weight loss plan which suits you and your pet.

Being a responsible pet owner sometimes can be difficult and you and your pet will have to work hard to get healthy again. No more dinner time treats or snacks and lots more walks and exercise will help your pet to get back to a normal and healthy weight. A Weight Loss programme with Grove Vets will help you to get back on the right path.

Grove Vets Pet Health Plan

At Grove Vets we fully recommend you consider a Pet Health Plan. With a Pet Health Plan, Grove Vets can help you to save money by paying monthly for your pet’s essential preventive care.

Grove Vets Pet Health Plan

A Pet Health Plan is not the same as health insurance; the plan will include regular things – like vaccinations and health checks in the monthly payment plans – that often don’t get covered by pet insurance. A Pet Health Plan is designed to adapt to the needs of your pet no matter what age it may be, from puppies or kittens, to adulthood and throughout the senior years.

Grove Vets Pet Health Plan

It’s really simple. A monthly payment is paid via direct debit and can be as low as £5.45 per month for a dog and £7.45 per month for a cat.

Future Farmers

I wonder how often we think about future farmers? We saw this fabulous little video recently from Dale Farm and thought we would share it again.

Isn’t it great to remember that farms grow, develop and continue through families and, that they get handed down to sons and daughters who continue a family tradition and more importantly, a family business.

The responsibility can include land, livestock, crops for fresh produce and employment of others to name a few. As a veterinary practice we take the responsibility to local farmers and their livestock very seriously. Their value to local community is of huge importance.

We think this video provides a lovely little insight.
