Maven Vets end the year on a high!

23rd November 2017 | by Maureen

The team at Maven Veterinary Care in North Cheam are thrilled to have been awarded Hospital Status in a recent inspection by the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons as part of the Practice Standards Scheme.

The scheme is voluntary and open to all veterinary practises in the UK. Those practices who choose to enter the scheme are rigorously assessed in all aspects of their patient care, premises and clinical and client care standards. Following assessment, the practice is awarded Core standard, General Practice standard or Hospital Standard.

As Hospital standard is the highest level which can be awarded, the team at Maven are delighted that their hard work over the years has been recognised. Ongoing, the team push themselves to review and improve standards clinically and for clients. Their ethos of exceeding expectations has led them well in this and the recent accolade of achieving hospital status is a real credit to their efforts.

In his report the Practice Standards inspector commented, ‘The friendly and motivated team were all very positive and open with their discussions and rightly proud of where they work and what they do.’

It’s a fabulous end to the year which also saw the team shortlisted in the top 3 for the Pet Plan Practice of the Year award earlier in the year.

Practice owner and Head Vet, Michael Morrice said, ‘Naturally we are delighted to have had a year where the efforts of our team and the high standards they work to has been recognised both in the Pet Plan Awards and now in achieving Hospital Status from the RCVS. In reality the dedication shown daily by the team to patients in our care and their owners is what this is really about. They care and it shows. We’re really pleased.’

Vaccination Amnesty November 2017

1st November 2017 | by Maureen

Vaccinating our pets is an essential part of keeping them healthy as it provides protection against diseases which they can be exposed to.  For full information on these diseases please visit our vaccinations page.

When we vaccinate your pet we give cause them to produce antibodies within their immune system that mean they can fight these diseases if they come across them. In order for your pets to have full immunity (maximum protection) they need to have a primary course, usually as a kitten or puppy and then a booster vaccination each year.

If a booster vaccination is missed the immunity your pet had does not last and so they are no longer protected. In order to have them fully protected again they need to restart the primary course.

For dogs and cats the primary course of the vaccinations requires two injections a few weeks apart.  (Please visit our Cat Vaccination and Dog Vaccination pages for full details).

Due to the two injections required the cost of restarting the vaccine course is more expensive than having a booster.

To help you get your pet back on track, during November 2017 we are offering a vaccine amnesty!

If your cat or dog has lapsed in their vaccination boosters they can receive the full primary course for half the normal cost.

To take advantage of this offer and get your pet back on track call us on 0208 337 2214 or why not request an appointment?
