We offer all of the facilities that you come to expect in a high quality first-opinion veterinary practice, including vaccinations, microchipping, neutering, x-rays, ultrasonography, full dental and surgical theatres, nurse clinics (often free of charge), as well as a well-equipped on-site laboratory. In addition, we have several features of which we are very proud. These include the addition of two brand new consultation rooms, which have been built in order to cater for our ever-growing number of patients, and provide the room to see your pet in a professional and purpose built setting, as quickly as possible. There is also a large, free car-park, enabling you to find a parking space whatever the time of your pet’s appointment, and a large surgery entrance, which serves as both a retail area and waiting room.
Our retail area stocks food for sale (predominantly Royal Canin’s Veterinary Care Nutrition and Clinical Nutrition ranges), as well as many other pet products, including collars, leads, harnesses, brushes, treats and chews, wild bird products, cat litter, litter trays, and pheromone products for cats and dogs. We also have a section dedicated to products for small furries and rodents. We do not, however, sell pets!
Our waiting room is divided into dog and cat waiting areas, so that your feline friends have as stress-free a visit as possible. So please don’t feel cut off by this quiet and secluded waiting area – it is designed with you cat in mind. Coming to the vets is stressful enough for a cat, but keeping them calm and away from dogs helps to reduce their anxiety as much as possible.
Imaging facilities include x-ray and ultrasonography. We are also one of the few practices in the area to possess a ‘Tonopen’, which is a device used to measure the internal pressure within an animal’s eye. This is essential to rule out glaucoma (high pressure in the eye), which is a serious condition which can lead to blindness and the potential need for eye removal.
All of our vets are experienced, with many years of small animal medicine and surgery under their belts. We aim for case continuity, so you will often see the same vet throughout your pet’s illness. Our nurses are also highly qualified and experienced. Everyone working at CVC is an animal lover – have a read through our staff profiles to find out more! We are also able to offer specialist surgical and imaging procedures on site, with the assistance of many Visiting Veterinary Specialists, in a range of fields.
We are open 7 days a week, and use a dedicated emergency service overnight and when we are closed at the weekends (Vets Now, based in Macclesfield). This ensures that your pet receives gold standard care 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year!
