At Betavet we always encourage preventative healthcare for your pets, which helps
keep your pets happy and healthy throughout their lives. All our staff want your pets to
have the quality of life they deserve.
From vaccination to parasite treatments, we want to make sure your pets have all the
protection they need to let them lead an active life, without the worry of disease.
As your vets, we are asked numerous questions about pet health every day, and we are
only too happy to help. We don’t want you worrying about your pet’s health, when we
may have the answer!
At Betavet we strongly believe in protecting your pets against infectious and life-threatening diseases. We vaccinate dogs and cats, from the puppy and kitten stage, and right through their adult lives with yearly boosters. We also vaccinate rabbits against serious disease. On every visit your pet will have a complete health check and the vet will advise on flea and worming treatments.
Our vet’s daily surgery can be routine such as neutering and removing lumps, to specialist surgical work – orthopaedics, repairing simple fractures, anterior cruciates, and also specialised ear surgery. The vets perform neutering on dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets and some small furries. Lumps are also removed from all small animal species, including birds.
Dental health in pets is vitally important as poor teeth can cause other problems in the body – it’s not just toothache! Our team can give your pets complete dental checks and treatment and we have a new air driven dental unit and ultrasonic scaler to help their teeth sparkle.
The practice has its own in-house haematology and biochemistry machine, which means blood results can be delivered quickly and efficiently. Our laboratory facilities also include urinalysis and microscopy equipment. Pets can also benefit from our Digital X-ray processor and our ultrasound scanner for medical diagnosis and pregnancy. We also run dedicated blood pressure clinics for cats in a stress-free environment.
Microchipping gives you the best chance of being reunited with your pet should they ever get lost. In the UK since April 2016, it is now compulsory for all dogs over the age of eight weeks to have a microchip. A microchip is also a requirement for the pet passport scheme, necessary if you’re keen to take your pets abroad with you.
Betavet is a PDSA approved practice for Alloa, Stirling & the Hillfoots, and eligible clients can be seen with or without an appointment under the scheme. The practice also takes part in the Cat’s Protection neutering scheme. Please call the practice for more details on these schemes.
Following the announcement by the Prime Minister on 23rd March we would like to update the measures we are taking at Betavet to ensure the ongoing health of your pets while minimising the risk of spread of Covid19 to our staff and clients. We are remaining open. We will not be doing any routine medical or surgical procedures but will treat anything we deem to be urgent to avoid suffering or distress. We ask all clients attending the practice to continue maintaining social distancing and if there are 2 people in the waiting room please wait outside until someone leaves. Please telephone the staff in advance for ongoing provision of medicines, make payment over the phone if possible and you will be asked to collect at a safe distance. A postal service is available for any sick or vulnerable client. Thank you for your support and understanding.
