Puppy Socialisation Classes (currently available at Wellpets Clevedon)

We run a 4 week puppy socialisation course for our clients and their puppies here at Wellpets Cleve-don. The course will be ran by ‘Lucy’ one of our qualified veterinary nurses (RVN). Lucy has a wealth of experience with puppies, last year raising a litter of Border Collies! During the course you and your puppy will learn about the importance of socialisation, basic training commands and techniques. You will receive helpful handouts and lots of freebies throughout the course to help you and your puppy prepare for the big wide world. This is also a great way of getting your puppy used to the Wellpets practice and team, as well as associating a visit to the vets with a fun experience!

Teeth are a bit like icebergs, what you can see on the surface may be a lot different to what’s going on beneath. Even rows of pearly whites can be deceiving – just under the gums there could be unerupted teeth, cysts, rotten and retained roots, crown enamel lesions, and tooth/bone socket problems: all common, hidden and painful for your pet.

But now Wellpets vets have gained X-ray vision! Now they can see the invisible; being able to look not only beneath the gums but through the underlying jaw bone and right inside the tooth as well: using a new state-of-the-art Veterinary Dentistry X-Ray Machine.

So if your pet ever does need some dentistry work, current problems and potentially even future issues can be better picked up and acted upon right away. And the best way to find out if he or she does need ‘Smile Therapy’ is to go see your Wellpets Vet!
