Here’s a chance to catch up on what’s been happening in the practice recently from our Facebook page www.facebook.com/imcvets – don’t forget to like us!

Two of our student nurses are….well no longer students! Aimee Lee and Stacey Barlow have recently become fully qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses and have swapped their (by their own admission horrible!) stripy green tunics for the familiar “bottle green” of vet nurses. They now bring the total number of RVN’s to four in the practice and this enables us to provide regular client and pet-centric clinics offering advice and REAL help for pets with dental, senior wellness needs, weight management and a whole host of other needs. Vet nurses can perform certain procedures in practice, including some vaccinations and surgical work and, just like our veterinary surgeons, are fully regulated and scrutinised by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons in the UK. Our congratulations to Aimee and Stacey and the deserved recognition of two years hard work.

The practice now has a continuous learning and development schedule in the new building and recently had a “lunch and learn” session about osteoarthritis in pets. Many developments have taken place in the past few years and if your pet appears to be suffering from joint pain or stiffness, we can help and more importantly you and your pet can see REAL improvement and benefits in a matter of days. Ask us about “Bill the Krill” and how Synoquin or Stimulin can make a difference to quality of life for any age of pet at a price that’s affordable and cannot be beaten, please have a word with one of the nurse team.



It will very soon be Rabbit Awareness Week (RAW 2015) and in advance of the week we have a helpful article in this month’s Mossley Browser (and repeated in the May Saddleworth Monthly) compiled by our Student Nurse Francesca Glynn. We’ll be offering once again FREE bunny health checks during May with details following soon.
