A New Face to Meridian

We welcome Iain McGill along with his dog Benji to the Meridian team. Iain started at Meridian in January 2014 and graduated from London Vet University in 1988.  After initially working as a veterinary scientist at London zoo, Iain returned to small animal practice, and then moved to Brighton in 2003. Iain has already become a very popular vet at Meridian and we are very lucky to have him as part of our team.

We also say goodbye to our vet Jonathan Yeatts who has moved to Essex to live with his girlfriend and we wish him all the best.

 

Our Alfie

We are very sad to say goodbye to our beloved practice cat Alfie who reached the grand age of 20 years old. Alfie was with us at Meridian for almost 2 years after his owner was taken into care and passed away. Alfie was a big part of our Meridian family and is deeply missed by us all.

 

Word of Mouth

Did you know, whenever you recommend a friend or relative to register as a new client at Meridian Veterinary Practice, we will give you AND your friend £5.  This will be credited to your account and will help towards the cost of any future medications or treatment your pet may need. 80% of our new clients come from your recommendation so this is just a little thank you from us!

 

Free Deliveries

The van is out and about making deliveries every Wednesday between 2-4pm by Andy Harper. This FREE service has gone down a treat at Meridian and we are happy to continue (within a 5 mile radius).

 

Worms

Worms have complicated life cycles that involve several different larval stages before the worms become adult. Unfortunately there is no worming medication available that is effective against all the stages. Early larval stages may remain dormant in a dog or cat for years only to reactivate at some point later in your pet’s life. Your pet may also pick up new worm infections from sources outside. It is therefore very important for your pet’s health that you give them regular worming medication.  We advise dogs and cats to be wormed at least every three months, or every 6 months when you use Advocate monthly. Please do not hesitate to ask a member of staff if you would like further information.

 

Nurses clinics

We are pleased to introduce free senior clinics with the nurses for cats over 12 years and dogs over 8 years old alongside Rabbit care clinics.

Both these clinics need an appointment with the nurse and will include a full nurse examination with a discussion into specific care. Please be aware extra procedures such as nail clipping will require a small charge.
