What Does Pet Universe Stand For?
We believe in offering the very best healthcare in an innovative, professional, caring, enjoyable, consistent and value-for-money way. That’s why all our wellness procedures are designed to be affordable without compromising our standards so all routine procedures include pre-G.A.s and I.V. fluids capnography and blood pressure monitoring as standard. In addition, our standard consults are 20 minutes long or 30 minutes for new clients. This enables us to promote our unique features including Fear Free techniques for all our patients which falls in line with our Cat Friendly Gold Accreditation. We have a large number of qualified veterinary nurses and dedicated Client Relations team members. We have performed over many stem cell treatments on cats and dogs and the results are outstanding. Lastly, we have some really great clients who want to do the best for their pets and say “Yes” to our treatment recommendations.
