On top of our diagnostic facilties, this assists us in manintaing a high level of surgical success stories. Additionally, we offer an in-house referral service with Peak Referrals performing highly specialised procedures such as cruciate repair, complicated fracture repair, all at the surgery, which would otherwise need to be referred elsewhere.
We also offer a range of routine surgical procedures.
Dr Adam Durkin runs pain management clinics where he uses acupuncture along with conventional treatments to either increase the efficacy of pain relief or reduce the amount of medication required.
Acupuncture: Acupunture has evolved from the ancient art of placing needles into special locations on the body to alleviate pain, improve recovery rates and increase resistance to disease.
The needles work through the nervous system, blocking the pain messages and encouraging the brain and central nervous system to produce more of the body’s natural pain killers. In conditions that are not painful, acupuncture may help to reset the body’s normal functioning.
Download our commonly asked questions leaflet for more information.
If you would like further information on whether acupuncture is appropriate for your pet please contact the practice on 01335 342111.

Dental disease is the most frequently seen health problem in pet animals.
At least 7 out of 10 dogs and cats over the age of 3 years have dental health problems.
The most common conditions seen are periodontal disease (gum disease), tooth resorption (in cats) and fractured teeth. Dental disease in rabbits is also a very frequent problem.
Dental disease is often painful and can be very debilitating. It can be the cause of and is often associated with significant poor health.
At Blenheim our team of veterinary professionals can advise on dental health and treat problems when needed. Please bring your pet to see us if you have concerns about their teeth.
Dental procedures are frequently advised and we use ultrasonic scaling and polishing equipment to enable us to carry out dental hygiene procedures as well as high speed drill units to facilitate with extractions. In order to perform a dental procedure effectively in our pets a general anaesthetic is required.
If you think your pet is suffering from dental health problems an appointment with one of our many experienced veterinary surgeons should be made.
The ideal way to look after your pet’s teeth is to brush them with a soft pet toothbrush and animal toothpaste at least 1-2 times a week (more frequently if possible). In the absence of tooth-brushing there are several things you can do to maintain your pet’s dental health. Feeding complete dental diets on a daily basis to form at least 30% of their food intake will help to reduce plaque and tartar build up and reduce the need for dental scale and polish procedures.
We also have regular nurse clinics where you can see a Veterinary Nurse for dental advice.
Our in-house laboratory enables us to process the majority of samples taken the very same day. We are able to analyse haematology and biochemistry blood samples, complete urine analysis and identify a wide variety of parasites - naming just a few tests.

If you are planning to go abroad with your pet, we are able to help you get everything sorted before you go.

We appreciate that there are circumstances where you may wish for a home visit and we are more than happy to make visits to your pets in your home when required. We ask that you give us notice to fit these into the working day and ask that, where possible, you call us first thing in the morning to enable us to accommodate this.
In the event of an emergency it is always better for your pet to be seen at the practice wherever possible and we encourage you to drive, get a lift or taxi to the practice in order that your pet can receive immediate and appropriate veterinary attention.
