Nurse health clinics at STAR Vets


We like to think that caring for your pet means more than simply bringing them in when they are unwell. At STAR Vets in Appleby Magna, we are great believers in maintaining health through preventative intervention. This is why we offer a range of Nurse-led health clinics to help you and your pet.

Nurse-led pet care

STAR Vets’ fully qualified Registered Veterinary Nurses (RVNs) work alongside our Veterinary Surgeons to ensure the wellbeing of all our patients. They are ideally placed to offer you and your pet the following health clinics:


Anal gland expressions

  • Some dogs need this doing every 1 – 2 months. 

Diabetic clinics

  • Our Nurses can help you understand more about pet diabetes and the care your pet will need. 

Free Nurse health checks

  • Ideal to keep your pet in tip top condition between their annual Vet check-ups. 


Nail clips

  • Your pet will thank you for keeping their nails trim – let our experienced Nurses take care of this. 

Nutritional advice

  • Talk to our Nurses about the best foods for your pet’s individual needs. 

Puppy parties

  • Join other new puppy owners and learn all about puppy care. 

Socialisation visits

  • Great for babies and adult pets that need to meet people and experience new sights & sounds. 

Senior care clinics

  • Get advice from our Nurses on how to manage senior pet health conditions at home, such as arthritis. 

Weight clinics
