Fischer's lovebird

We encourage that where possible, our clients have pet insurance as vet bills can be expensive particularly if your pet has complicated health problems that require long term care and management. Pet insurance also means we can fully investigate any health issues your pet may have, using all the range of diagnostic facilities we have access to and offer the most up to date treatment that veterinary medicine can provide.
