Selix Vets provide care for older pets in the comfort of their own home, and for younger companion animals in the same home. Investigations and treatments which cannot be done in the home are carried out at our support Practice, Springwell Vets in Tring (see link) or another appropriate Practice.
We also offer a referral service for Pain Management (including Acupuncture and Laser Therapy), End-of-Life Care and Behavioural Therapy. We normally require referral by the pet’s Veterinary Surgeon.
