Dinas Vets – How are we different?
We could wax lyrical here about our excellent services, our high clinical standards and our modern, clean and spacious practice – indeed we do have all of this and more. However, all this is of no consequence without the underpinning compassionate concern we have for our clients and their pets.
We really do care. Our staff understand and cherish the special relationship you have with your pets, and how you feel the weight of responsibility when it comes to their healthcare and life decisions. We will be there for you through the good times and the bad. We will take time to assist you to make the right decisions, so that your pet can enjoy a long, happy and healthy life with you.
At Dinas Vets, there are no expensive TV adverts, tiers of management, unnecessary gadgets, sales targets or franchising fees to pay. Our staff are free to recommend the treatments they would choose for their own pets.
So please have a look at what we can offer, but remember – we’re doing this for the pets.
“I will never be able to thank you enough”
“We would like to show our appreciation for all you’ve done – for ALL the pups and family”
“We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful care and compassion you have given to our dear pet Lizzie”
“Thank you for caring for me, when I was extremely poorly. I have so many more happy memories to make”
“Thank you so much for the care and love you have shown for both Misty and us. We were glad of the extra time you enabled us to have with her”
Our Vets provide impartial advice in the best care of your pet. Be it from animal husbandry, diet, routine consultations, or old age our experienced Vets will guide you. With a range of treatments to hand making the right decision is important and each option will be explained in full.
In cases with long term goals Owners are made aware of the overall picture and the likely health of their pet in the years to come.
We offer vaccinations, nail clipping, routine consultations, medicine checks, second opinions, allergy checks and euthanasias. We ensure enough time is available during each consultation so that they are unhurried, and that we have answered all your questions
Bringing your new family member home is always an exciting time, but you may well have questions about your new pet’s health, or need some reassurance that they are healthy. We offer a free vet-check to reassure you on the health of your puppy or kitten and discuss healthcare and husbandry issues when you’ve bought them home
‘We are what we eat’ – you may not feed your pet sugary snacks but years of use will take their toll on your pet’s dental health. Some of the most serious oral problems, like tumours and decay, can be hidden from view. Poor oral health can affect your pets quality and length of life. For example, did you know that infection from the mouth can travel to the heart and cause infecrion in the valves?
We will check your pet’s mouth and offer advice on dental preventative or appropriate surgical treatment.
Our trusted ‘out of hours’ provider – V.E.T.S. – will take your emergency calls, and offer an excellent service when we are closed. This means that specifically trained and experienced emergency staff will always be available to take your call no matter what time of the day or night. Releasing our ‘day’ vets from night ‘on call’ duties means that they will be well rested and alert, motivated and ready to offer you the best of service
Pets hospitalised at V.E.T.S. in Gabalfa receive round the clock care and monitoring by a Vet and a Nurse who stay on site. Emily has personally inspected and approved the facilities and care provided by V.E.T.S.
We can arrange a home visit if you need it for an additional charge. These visits can be much better for your pet as they get to have their medical needs met in their home environment.
Things we can do at your home include: blood taking, blood pressure measurement (much more likely to be accurate at your house), nail clipping, vaccinations, routine parasite treatments, euthanaisias and much more. All we ask is that we have as much notice as possible so we can ensure we bring the right equipment and staff with us.
Our qualified and trainee Nurses run health clinics to help keep your pet in tip top condition.
Weight clinics, post operative checks, geriatric checks, blood pressure monitoring, diabetes clinics, blood testing, puppy and kitten checks, 2nd vaccinations, and nail clipping are all some of the many services our nurses can offer.
Call today to book an appointment with one of our nurses and your pet’s health will be assured!
We offer up to date anaesthetic techniques using the safe equipment. Our qualified nurses, experienced Nurse Trainees and Nursing Auxilliaries are specially trained to administer and monitor anaesthetics safely.
Our spacious modern practice has all the facilities our Vets need to give you a top class service in your own locality.
Large private consulting rooms, in house blood test machines that can provide an answer in 20 minutes, digital xrays, ultrasound, overnight laboratory courier service, spacious kennels and cattery, clean and well equipped surgical suite and a well-stocked pharmacy to dispense your medicines immediately.
These drugs are stored in full compliance with the Veterinary Medicines Directorate’s directions to ensure they stay in top condition. Our highly trained staff can advise you on non prescription items, and our stock is reviewed often to ensure we are offering you the most up-to-date and cost effective medicines possible.
If there are more detailed investigations to be made, we can call on the services of a visiting Ultrasound specialist, and also cardiologists, too.
This machine enables us to offer you answers to put your mind at rest with unrivaled speed and accuracy. We can also use this machine to keep tabs on your pet’s response to our treatment and tailor the plan accordingly.
We can test blood or other samples from your pet to quickly diagnose health problems like diabetes, liver or kidney failure, blood disorders and many more. on the same day as your pet is presented. If more detailed examinations are required, our Government accredited laboratory can provide next day results in many cases.
With digital xray we can send pictures all over the UK and indeed the world, to dedicated specialists to get their opinions instantly if necessary.
Your pet can be hospitalised with us, meaning he or she will receive the best of care, locally. You will be kept informed of your pets’ progress by a means of your choice, and you will be invited to visit your pet as appropriate.
Cats are comfortably housed in a separate, quiet, dedicated Cat Ward where they can relax.
The practice benefits from the air conditioning installed throughout, which means that whatever the weather outside, they will be comfy inside.
