    Clients invited to bring in their itchy pets to the practice.

    Most of us will have suffered from Chicken pox at some point in our lives - even almost three decades on I can still remember the agonising desire to scratch myself raw.  None of us would want our pet, a treasured family member, to feel like that.

  • Scratch below the surface: why XLVets small animal are offering a dermatology initiative

    by Ann Mottram at XLVets

    Skin conditions, such as ear infections and allergies, are some of the most common health problems to affect our pets. It’s fairly common to see your pet sit back, raise a leg, and have a good old scratch behind the ear. Most of the time you probably don’t think much of it, but there may be a more serious condition lurking under your pet’s fur coat.
