Stay With Your Pet

Stay with your petAs pet owners ourselves we understand how upsetting it can be  to bring a much loved “friend” to a strange place and have to leave him in the hands of strangers. This is even more stressful if your pet is ill and you don’t know what is wrong with them.

Our philosophy is based around the quiet personal approach to your pet’s healthcare. Appointments are kept to a minimum so that we don’t have a noisy waiting room and a stressful kennel environment. During your appointment you and your pet may well be the only clients in the building,so you can receive our undivided attention.

In order to minimise stress and anxiety  for both you and your pet, here at Sarah Smith Cardiology we prefer you to stay with your pet for as much of the investigation as possible. Through experience we have found that in general animals are a lot calmer and more compliant if their owner is present. This element of relaxation allows us to examine animals in a calm atmosphere and obtain more representative results.
