Carla and Mel


Here at Border Vets we try our best to provide you with a good and personal veterinary service.

You will be seen by either Carla, Mel, Alexia or Cristina and we try our best to be accessible by phone if we are not operating.


Most of our furry friends appreciate a familiar friendly face when they come in.

Feline Blood Pressure >

  We all know that keeping an eye on our cholesterol level and having regular blood pressure checks keeps our hearts healthy, but did you know that high blood pressure is a common problem in our older age cats ? Amongst other things it can cause retinal detachment and blindness.


 We are now offering this blood pressure monitoring service to all cats over 12 years of age - please speak to us at your cat's next vaccination.
