FREE AGE CONCERN APPONTMENTSEnded (Ended on 10th Feb 2017)
Another year older- is it starting to show?http://churchcroftvet.co.uk/our-services/emergency-vets
New year is often a time to review and perhaps realise that our youngsters are not so young anymore. From the age of seven the aging process begins in our furry friends.
Everyone can see when pets are ancient but the earlier signs of ageing are more subtle. Early recognition of ageing changes can allow for appropriate life style changes to be mad... Read More

FIREWORKS – DON’T LET YOUR DOG SUFFER NEEDLESSLY
The fireworks season lasts from late October to New year these days with Guy Fawkes night usually lasting a couple of weeks followed by sporadic bursts until a spectacular finale at New year. Unfortunately, it’s a rubbish time of year for many dogs and cats (and let’s not forget rabbits and guinea pigs out in the garden) who are petrified of the bangs and flashes. Some dogs in particular are v... Read More

Protect your pet – and your pocket!Ended (Ended on 5th Jun 2016)
2016 has seen some real changes for pet owners in Nottingham. There is a new law now in force with a £500 fine for those who have not microchipped their dogs.
In addition, Churchcroft Veterinary Centre has identified a tick that is new to the area and has the potential to spread devastating disease especially amongst dogs.
This is therefore a really important time to make sure you are fully up to date with preventative care for your pet.

By Law all dogs must be microchipped by the 6th of AprilEnded (Ended on 10th Apr 2016)
To help avoid the £500 fine we have a choice of microchips on special offer to choose from, ranging from £10-£25
The law has been brought in to reduce the shocking number of stray dogs in the U.K. and hence reduce the number of traffic accidents and other problems to which stray dogs contribute.
To help ensure that all dogs are legally compliant by the due date, here at Churchcroft we have offers on two types of microchip.
The basic micro... Read More
Make sure your puppy grows up into a well-rounded individualEnded (Ended on 31st Mar 2016)
Did you know that puppies have a critical learning period before 12 weeks old?
During that first 12 weeks they will accept new experiences without fear which prevents a lot of problems that owners of unsocialised puppies experience. Poorly socialised puppies can be aggressive to other dogs or fearful and yappy.
Puppies that are well socialised as youngsters become more sociable adult dogs who are easier to walk amongst other dogs and are genera... Read More

What Our Customers Are Saying About Us...
Thank you for the card and kindness you gave us and thank you for all the love and care that you gave Travis throughout his later years. He was a great friend to many and we miss him very much.
We have been with George, Julia and the team for 7 years. George and his team have always been very professional, honest and genuinely caring with us and our two amazing dogs. We are going through a tough time at the moment with our Molly who is undergoing chemotherapy, they have held our hands and paws throughout this whole experience. A friend recently asked me if I had watched" super vet on the tv.." I said " we don't need to watch that as we have our very own super vet". We wouldn't trust anyone else with our wonderful pets, thank you Churchcroft, from the Cox family.
Julie & Peter Cox
George and Lisa you were amazing last Thursday, I can not even begin to thank you enough.
You've looked after him ever since I had him and he's been everywhere with me including work, he has been a very special part of my life.
You're an amazing vet George, I've said it before and I know I will say it again.
Tyson would thank you too if he could.
We moved to Chilwell and brought Oz, our cat, to George for the first time in the summer of 2015 for his vaccinations and annual “MOT”. We didn’t know it at the time, but it would be the start of a heartbreaking journey.
Through the consultation, assessment, testing and ultimately the devastating final diagnosis, George has been at every stage caring and compassionate, yet always 100% honest with us.
Making an impossibly difficult decision is always made easier by being well-informed. Encountering vets who really love animals and who greet their patients with affection when they arrive for an appointment is a lovely thing, and every pet owner should be so lucky.
We know that the time we have left with Oz is short, but knowing that George, Julia, Gabby and the rest of the team will be there to hold our hands (and paws) every step of the way is both reassuring and very comforting. Thank you, Churchcroft
Thank you all for your assistance with 4-Sox through all of her visits to your practice and thank you especially for all of your kindness.
To George and all the staff at Churchcroft
We would like to say a huge thank you for everything you did for Ron. He was the loveliest Guinea pig and without your care, concern and expertise in everything you did for him, we wouldn't have been able to enjoy his company for as long as we did. We will never be able to thank you enough.
To George, Jon and Julia
Thank you all so much for looking after me this week and letting my family see me on the webcam. I hope you can get some sleep now George.
Love from Cody
We just wanted to say a very big thank you to you all for the care and attention you gave our boys (and we know it was a lot!!) over the last few months.
As you can see they are happy to be back together and it is lovely to see them chasing each other round again and climbing everything in sight.
Sue, Guy, Bill and Ben.
We’d recommend Churchcroft Vets to everyone. They provide a friendly professional service with a local family feel, that you just don’t get in bigger practices. They really care about your pet’s welfare and understand how difficult it can be when pets are ill. When my mum’s dog became ill, whilst visiting us, they saw her straight away and did all they could to help her get better. They were absolutely lovely with my mum and her dog, Dora. We couldn’t have asked for more.
Mr and Mrs Dunn
The care Misty receives from George is second to none, sometimes I think he is treating his own cat. George is a fantastic vet and always explains everything so clearly that even I understand. Everyone at Churchcroft Vets have contributed to Misty enjoying her old age and I would not take her to any other vet.
Misty is the 2nd of my 2 cats (Fudge being the other) and like Fudge she is 17 years old. She was diagnosed by George in early 2014 with stomach cancer and after consultation he suggested a course of chemotherapy.
Misty has Chemotherapy tablets every 4 weeks and also a blood test, and if you didn’t know she had cancer you could never tell. She is still, at 18, a very active cat and is completely enjoying her old age.
Thank you George and your team for looking after my Misty.
