If you are currently raising a puppy, they need to be exposed to a variety of sights, sounds and places. With the much quieter current life style going on at the moment, we at Ribble Vets wanted to give you a helping hand keeping your puppies entertained, trained and socialised. We also offer Confidence Clinics to help your pup get used to coming to the practice, these clinics consist of weekly visits for you and your pup. If you are interested in attending Confidence Clinics please contact the practice when normal life resumes.
