Is your pet in pain? ...

None of us like to see or hear pain or suffering, human or animal, especially when it affects our loved ones. All of us at Boness Vets feel the same, and it is the reason we love what we do – relieving pain and suffering and caring for our patients and their families.

For many people and their pets the fear of pain is one reason why they are nervous about a visit to the vet. In reality, of course, there is nothing to fear. Everything we do for our patients is intended to relive pain and, if a painful procedure is necessary, we provide the necessary pain relief and/or anaesthesia.

How much? ...

‘How much will it cost?’ is a question we have every day: and no wonder when the cost of everything is constantly increasing. And of course we are not immune from price and wage rises enforced on us by suppliers and legal requirements. However, our pricing philosophy is based on just what we have to charge to keep our facilities and staff at the gold standard end of the spectrum.

Some veterinary businesses offer eye catching low costs on a variety of common items – but beware, you only get what you pay for and often, once they have your trust, they will charge high when they can.

On the other hand, we charge a fair price for everything. One other thing to remember is that veterinary medicine is almost exactly the same as human medicine. In the UK we pay approximately £1,500 per year for every man, woman and child for the NHS – £100 billion and growing. Veterinary medicine is never this expensive – and guess what, veterinary staff are paid less than their equivalents in human medicine.

Please do feel free to call us at any time to discuss our services, products and prices.

What to expect at Boness Vets...

  • Welcome: our staff will always welcome you with a smile. Usually, you will be asked to weigh your pet when you arrive and of course, if it is your first visit you will be asked to complete a registration form.
  • Questions: We know you don’t the answers – that is why you want our advice. So, please, do not feel embarrassed about asking us anything – others have asked them before you!
  • Consultations: Our consultations are 20 minutes. Usually our consultations are managed by the nurses and vets are brought in to the consulting room to see you when the initial part of the consultation has completed. The vet and nurse will conduct the consultation together. This provides you with the best opportunity to discuss all your pet health queries or concerns.
  • In-Patients: are constantly monitored throughout their time with us. We have vets and nurses on site 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, including Christmas Day. During procedures that require anaesthesia a nurse will monitor the patient’s status at all times and will make recordings of various parameters such as heart rate, breathing rate and oxygen levels. After surgery is completed the patient is monitored until they have recovered from the aneasthetic.
  • Discharges: when in-patients are ready to be discharged we will arrange with you an appointment time. A nurse will go through the discharge details and any medication that needs to be given.
  • Payments: payments for all treatments are required before you leave the practice. Payments can be made in cash or by credit/debit card – we do not take cheques.
  • Client Service: at all times we aim to provide you with what you need, when you need it. If there is something you think we should be doing and have not, please do let us know. We can only improve our service to you if you tell us where we have failed. You can tell us anything at any time by phone or email or snail mail what ever you prefer. See here for the ways to contact us.
