The Pinch An Inch Club is a free health clinic run by our veterinary nurse Sandra.
It provides your pet with regular weight checks and a chance for you to discuss their diet and exercise routine.
As in people cats and dogs have an ideal weight. Our Pinch An Inch Club helps you achieve and maintain your pets ideal weight and so reduces the risk of added health problems, helping your pet to lead a more energetic, healthier and longer life.
