General Health Questions

We have put together a list of frequently asked questions. If you have any suggestions for a FAQ which doesn’t feature then we would love to hear from you- please email, call or have a chat with us at the practice.

What species of animal do you treat at the practice?

At Mimram Vets we most commonly treat dogs, cats and rabbits but we welcome small furries such as guinea pigs, gerbils, rats mice and hamsters. We also provide basic care for birds such as budgies, parrots and chickens.

What do I do if my pet is unwell when you are closed?

We fully understand how distressing this can be and so we have teamed up with the Royal Veterinary College to provide our clients with excellent and compassionate care while we are closed.

Please see our Out of Hours page
for more information.

Can I make an appointment to see the nurse?

It is possible to see a nurse for:

Nail clipping
Flea Treatments
Weight clinics
Certain injections

How will I know if my pet is overweight?

As with humans, there are many health risks associated with being overweight. To help our clients, our nurses run weight clinics where your pet can be weighed regularly and you can get advice on how much to feed your pet.

There is also a very useful ‘Body Condition Tool’ on the Purina website for both dogs and cats which includes pictures to help you identify whether your pet is overweight, underweight or at an ideal weight.

Should I get my pet insured?

At Mimram Vets we recommend owners consider pet insurance. We are unable to recommend specific policies but we are more than happy to give general information about pet insurance.
