Dogs have been enjoying their visits to Clarendon Street Veterinary Surgery in Cambridge for many years.

We can tell from all the wagging tails, toothy smiles, and return visits!

Here are seven reasons why we think dogs love coming to visit us …

  1. A warm doggy welcome – To help dogs feel at ease as soon as they walk through our door, our dog loving team are ready with warm smiles and lots of fuss.
  2. Dog treats (obviously!) – What vet visit would be complete, or satisfying, without a tasty dog treat or two? We’ve always got plenty of dog treats on tap. If your dog suffers from a sensitive stomach, you are very welcome to bring your own to make the visit more fun.
  3. Friendly faces – Most dogs love to mingle. A trip to our Cambridge practice can be a very social outing, with plenty of new dogs and people to meet. However, if your dog is a little nervous or shy, or prefers not to mix with other dogs, do let us know and we can book you in at a quieter time.
  4. Vets & nurses who speak ‘Dog’ – Our experienced team is always happy to get down to a dog’s level to bond, play, reassure, and just because they know it makes dogs feel special. While we still have some Covid restrictions in place, our vet may be able to treat your dog outside or even in the car if coming into the practice without an owner is particularly challenging for them.
  5. Dog friendly advice – We love sharing our canine knowledge and experience with owners. We’re pretty sure many dogs in Cambridgeshire will be loving the new food our vet recommended, or the fun exercise ideas our nurse talked about.
  6. Comfortable kennels – When dogs spend the day with us they get their own kennel with comfortable bedding to relax in. We take them out into the yard for comfort breaks and have pheromone diffusers in the kennels to help them feel relaxed and calm, and they get plenty of love and attention from our team. Feel free to bring a soft toy or blanket from home to make them feel more at home.
  7. Drop in visits/ weight checks welcome – Sometimes we may request an up to date weight so we can prescribe the right dose of medication. If your dog is too large or wriggly for the weighing scales at home, you are welcome to pop in and use our scales when the consult room is free. Just call first to check the best time to come down. You are also very welcome to pop your dog in for some fuss and treats if you are passing the practice, a great way for your canine companion to develop the very best associations with visits to the surgery!

Make your dog’s day with a visit to Clarendon Street Veterinary Surgery in Cambridge.
