Like humans, animals can develop stiff or painful joints as they get older and may need therapy to ease the pain and increase their mobility.
Any reduction in willingness to exercise, play or intereact, as well as signs of stiffness or lameness, are a potential sign of arthritis. We can offer solutions to relieve these symptoms, which may include joint supplements and a change in diet.
Mobility Clinics are free of charge. We only charge for medication or products used.
Diet & Weight Management
In the UK, it’s estimated that almost 50% of dogs and 25% of cats are obese (meaning at least 15% more than they should weigh). This can lead to many problems; which includes joint and arthritis disorders, heart problems, respiratory problems, diabetes and general deterioration in overall health.
We offer free weight clinics, where one of our Qualified Vet Nurses will assess your pet’s weight and body score, and suggest a target weight. We can then formulate a diet and exercise plan suited to your lifestyle and your pet’s needs. Regular weight checks help to monitor your pet’s progress.
Weight Clinics are free of charge. We only charge for medication or products used.

Rabbit Care Clinics
Rabbit’s are the third most popular pet in the UK and our nurses offer Clinics to keep your bunny healthy and help you to understand their needs.
Rabbit Care Clinics are free of charge. We only charge for medication or products used.
Grooming and De-matting
Regular grooming is essential to prevent hair balls, digestive upsets and, in rabbits, flystrike. Our nurses are on hand to help with grooming and de-matting. This is not intended to provide a full cosmetic clip: instead the nurse will tidy your pet’s coat and remove any significantly matted areas. The nurse can also advise on grooming procedures to be carried out at home.
Please note that your pet will need to be with us for the whole day, as some pets may need to be sedated for de-matting.
Nail Clipping & Ear Cleaning
Our nurses are on hand to help with nail clipping. Please contact the clinic to arrange an appointment with one of our experienced nurses.
If it has been recommended by your vet that regular ear cleaning is necessary, our Qualified Veterinary Nurses will be able to clean and check them for free, as well as performing a general health and weight check. Alternatively, the nurse can demonstrate the process, so that you can confidently clean them at home.
Just like our own, our pet’s teeth need regular attention. There are many options from toothbrushing to convenient dental treats.
At these clinics, we are able to demonstrate dental care for your pet. Click for more information about dental disease and tips on toothbrushing techniques.
We charge a small fee for dental check-ups.
Worming and Flea Check-ups
Worming and flea checks are free of charge to registered clients who have difficulty administering the treatments. We find that animals not only benefit from regular effective worming and flea treatment, but also enjoy coming to see us on a regular basis for cuddles, helping to establish the vets clinic as a place of excitement that they are not afraid to visit. All you pay for is the medication.
Worming and Flea checks are free of charge. We only charge for medication or products used.
We usually like to see animals a few days after an operation, to make sure their recovery is going as planned. Providing the operation was routine, the nurse will carry out these checks. If they are at all worried by a recovery they will always get one of our vets to check.
Most post-op checks are free of charge – please get in touch with the clinic to find out the cost of your pets’ check-up.
When pets are neutered, hormonal changes occur causing your pet’s metabolic rate to fall, which can lead to your pet gaining weight. We believe prevention is better than cure, so post-neutering weight checks are free to all pets neutered at The Mewes Vets.
Three months post-neutering, we invite you to bring your pet back for a free weight check-up with our nurses. Small changes are usually all that is required to help your pet have a happy and healthy life.
Chronic kidney disease is a common condition affecting many senior cats and dogs. The kidneys run many essential biological functions such as filtering the blood, regulating concentration of several essential minerals and producing hormones that help regulate blood pressure and red blood cell renewal.
Chronic kidney disease means that the kidneys are not able to filter out metabolic waste or regulate minerals within the body. This means that waste builds up within the blood, triggering a range of symptoms and hormone changes.
We offer a renal clinic for pets with kidney disease, where one of our qualified nurses will assess, support and monitor your pet. The clinic is free – we will only charge for products and treatments used.
Start your puppy off on the right paw by bringing them to our puppy parties run by our experienced nurses! Young puppies aged 8-15 weeks old will get used to the veterinary clinic environment and will learn to interact with other dogs.
Owners don’t miss out, with talks on dog behaviour, basic commands, flea and worm treatment, and nutrition.
