Hospital for Small Animals

Client Talks

A wide range of talks, presented by our vets and nurses, to help you give your pets a long and happy life.

Sadly, at this time of Coronavirus, we spend less time with our clients, so we have planned a number of talks  to keep in touch with you all. We hope that you will find these useful and if you have any ideas for subjects that you would like us to cover, please let us know!

No booking is required, the session will go live shortly before the talk is due to begin and you can access the room by clicking on the links below.  There will be lots more subjects to follow shortly.

The talks with last approximately 20-30 minutes and will be followed by time for questions at the end. If you have more involved questions, we might suggest that we arrange a time to discuss them further.
