We believe every animal should be vaccinated. Your pet however should only be vaccinated as frequently as necessary. Yearly vaccination has long been encouraged but there are now a number of different vaccines available that can provide longer lasting immunity, including a 3 yearly (triennial) vaccine.

Microchipping provides permanent identification for your beloved pet. The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted just under the skin between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet’s neck. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner.

I would not hesitate to recommend others to take your beloved pets here. they will get the very best of care. Again thank you !!”

Penny Cotterill, Cavendish

“We would like to say a “VERY BIG THANKYOU” to Lauren, Scott and Amy at Hamilton Vetcare. Your patience and persistence in finding out what was wrong with Lenny was amazing. Lauren’s after hours care, phone calls and texts to check on Lenny’s welfare was more than we could have expected. Lenny is now home, relaxing and already feeling better.”

Tracey Stone, Hamilton

“My boxer of six years became very sick in a matter of hours he died of what we think was liver disease. Lauren was amazing, the extra special care and love she showed towards my boxer was unbelievable. Even after my boxer passed away they rang me to see if I was ok and sent me a beautiful poem and card. Trust in Hamilton Vetcare because your pet will be cared for in the best possible way”

Mardi Sparrow, Hamilton

“We have enjoyed working with Scott over many years associated with our Angus Seedstock operation. We have always found Scott to be very professional with excellent veterinary skills, and the natural stock handling calmness around our animals. He has always shown interest in the final outcomes of his work. We believe he is one of the best vets we have worked with and feel very lucky to have him based in Hamilton”

“Our pets aren’t really pets, they’re small furry people who are a big part of our lives. Their health and wellbeing is extremely important to us, and we expect the same level of care for our fur-kids as we insist on for ourselves. Scott, Lauren, and the team at Hamilton Vetcare understand this and treat our fur-kids as if they were their own.

We have a great respect for naturopathic and homeopathic complementary medicine, and were initially surprised when Scott and Lauren were remarkably supportive of our wishes to use these alternative treatments where possible. As vets who practise and trust in conventional veterinary medicine, it is a huge credit to them both that they are not only willing to support alternative treatments, but have even assisted us by researching the most appropriate supplements.

We consider ourselves extremely lucky to have such a dedicated vet team to care for our family. Time and again, they have supported us well above-and-beyond what we could reasonably expect, and we would not hesitate to recommend Hamilton Vetcare to any conscientious animal owner.”

Shane and Sam Middleton, Hamilton
