We offer full 15 minute consultations by appointment, whether for general check-ups, vaccinations, microchipping, diagnosis and treatment of injuries and illnesses.
Our new clinic offers a full range of surgical procedures. Our up to date facilities include an induction/prep area and a dedicated sterile operating theatre.
We strive to adhere to gold standards of anaesthesia, and use protocols and equipment of the safest standards, for the induction, maintenance and monitoring of your pets anaesthesia. To minimise risks, all older pets are offered pre-anaesthetic blood tests (and also for younger patients if deemed to be of higher risk e.g. if very ill or post-accident).
We have hospital wards to admit more seriously ill patients for observation, fluid therapy and whatever care they may need e.g. diabetic patient stabilisation.
At the clinic we have our own X-ray suite with automatic processing for next to instant radiology results for that patient with a suspected broken leg , or that swallowed fish hook ( and lots more in between!!! )
We regularly examine and treat your pet for all sorts of dental and oral problems. We are fully equipped to deal with extractions, dental infections, removal of plaque and tartar build up, and treatment of gingivitis and periodontal disease.
We are pro-active in helping to keep your pets weight down as obesity can have profound effects on certain diseases (eg arthritis). Feel free to drop in at any time to have your pet weighed – there is no charge for this service.
