Pet Passport

Pet Passports - Taking Your Pet Abroad?

We are Official Veterinary Inspectors appointed by DEFRA and allowed to issue Pet Passports

The pet passport scheme allows you to take your dog, cat or ferret in and out of many countries with little ado. Once you have travelled once with your passport you will find it very straightforward.


However, arranging pet passports can be complicated. We have a lot of experience in this field and we can help to ensure your pet's travel documents are prepared with as little stress for you as possible.

There are different regulations for different countries and some of the requirements take several weeks to fulfil, so we advise that you get in touch as soon as you are considering travel.

In addition, there are important, life threatening parasites in many of the other countries that you must ensure your pet is protected against. We can help you plan how best to avoid these.

We can also issue export health certificates for pets traveling to countries outside of the Pet Passport Scheme. Please contact us as soon as you are considering travel to these countries.

It's cold outside! A reminder to keep your rabbits and guinea pigs warm and dry with plenty of high quality hay (and clean, fresh water too).
These two rabbits are enjoying each other's company.
We'd love to see photo's of your rabbits and guinea pigs enjoying some quality time with you. Tag us in so we can enjoy too.

FREE VET ARTHRITIS CONSULTATION
Call 0115 922 4855 to book your appointment.

Has your dog, cat or rabbit slowed down this winter, maybe started acting a bit older, coat looking less well groomed?

Churchcroft Vets are keen to help owners give their arthritic pets a better quality of life by offering free arthritis consultations and treatment during January and February. We also have some limited stock of FREE trial pain killers for new cases diagnosed in this time.

Call 0115 922 4855 and take a dvantage of this special offer.

At this time of year when the weather gets colder some pets become less keen to get out of bed and exercise or maybe become less keen to socialise with the family. Owners frequently mistake these signs as old age but they are more often symptoms of arthritis. Colder weather makes arthritic joints stiffer so the signs of arthritis become more apparent at this time of year. Any ONE of these signs can indicate your pet has arthritis:

1) Hesitating to jump onto the sofa / into the car

2) Licking at a joint e.g. a wrist or an elbow

3) Toileting in the house

4) Being less keen to go for a walk or into the garden

5) Getting less keen to be stroked

6) Losing coat condition, grooming less

7) Becoming bad tempered with other pets

8) Appearing stiff when walking or dragging back feet along the ground

9) Gaining weight despite no change in feeding

If your pet has ANY ONE of these signs then they may have arthritis and be in pain.

A professional veterinary examination can pinpoint areas of discomfort and joints with reduced movement. Owners whose pets are treated for arthritis often report that their pet becomes much happier and more playful and generally seems younger.
CALL 0115 922 4855 to book your appointment today.

Does anyone recognise this little guy?
Found on Bramcote Lane looking a little lost. He is a middle to old aged neutered male and is wearing a blue collar. He is in fair condition, not injured. We'd like to speak to his owner if anyone can put them in touch with us?

To help keep your pets safe, secure and calm remember the following. Walk dogs early in the day, shut cats indoors long before dark, provide dark places to retreat to and products such as pheromones or medications from your vet to enable your pet to feel less anxious and calm.

We have posted more detailed guidelines (on Facebook) on how to prepare your pet for the difficulties of fireworks. Churchcroft Vets give free advice on 01159224855.

Flash, bang, crash, whimper..... help dogs and cats deal with fireworks.

There are a number of ways to help your pet:
seek professional help, call Churchcroft Vets for free advice on 0115 922 4855. We have some really good medications that are very effective and a new gel to rub on their gums.

Find out when your local fireworks displays are on so that you can prepare:
Make sure cats are secure indoors well in advance of the fireworks.
A good long dog walk earlier in the day so that they are tired.
Provide a safe hiding place for dogs and cats, a crate, or even behind the sofa can be good.
Place your worn jumper or T' shirt in the crate to reassure of your presence.
Close the curtains and put some music or the TV on to help distract from the flashes and loud bangs.
Provide a long lasting chew, such as a frozen stuffed Kong to give another focus.
Pheromone or herb based plug in products can be helpful, we can discuss these with you.

Avoid over comforting as this increases anxiety.

Look after your little pumpkin over the fireworks season.

The flashes and bangs of fireworks can cause a real fear for many dogs and cats. Please don't let them suffer. There are some really good medicines available including a new, very effective gel to rub on their gums.

This is what Mr Lucas (Yasmin, the dog pictured) has to say. "I'm so glad we went to Churchcroft Vets to help Yasmin with her fear of fireworks, the medication has made all the difference to her and to us".

What Our Customers Think

We were lucky to have Churchcroft recommended to us over 5 years ago when Daisy joined us as a puppy. When we rescued Lacey we never expected to spend so much time with you. Lacey could not have had better care than that which she received from everyone associated with Churchcroft. Although the outcome was not what we wanted the extra time that she had with us was down to the expert vetinary care she received. We can never thank you enough for the care and compassion shown to her, Daisy and us h...

Cheryl Gray

Thank you for your exceptional care and treatment of Howie

Zoe & Tim

Sinead & Will

Thank you so much for the way you care for Tom. With your guidance he's doing so well and I have no doubt he's in the best hands.

Jen, Keith, Fred and Tommie

We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you.
