We provide Standard and Advanced Surgery, Advanced Anaesthesia, Hospitalisation, Dentistry, Dental X-rays, Digital X-rays, Ultrasound, ECG and extensive In-house Blood Testing, Endoscopy and Otoscopy.

  • Surgery - by far the most common reason to do surgery is to cure problems. Surgery is important for many problems, meaning that without being able to offer surgery, we would only be able to offer a limited number of solutions. Advances in pain control, anaesthetic monitoring and surgical procedures mean we can provide solutions while at the same time minimising your pet’s discomfort.
  • Anaesthesia - anaesthesia is always about safety. As well as our highly trained staff, monitors that include blood gas machines, pulse oximetry, capnography, ECG, blood pressure monitoring, and respiratory monitoring are all used to ensure maximum care is taken during your pets procedure. A vast array of anaesthetics are available to ensure that your pet has the anaesthetic most appropriate to them.
  • Hospitalisation - unfortunately there are problems that aren't instantly curable. That is why we need to offer facilities to provide intensive care, or to provide comfort for your pet while a healing process is taking place.
  • Dentistry - excessive tartar on teeth is one of the most common disorders of middle aged to older pets. Not only does this cause mouth soreness and erosion of teeth causing teeth to fall out, but gives bacteria and toxins a way to get into the blood stream, causing septicaemia, kidney problems and a large array of other problems. This is why we will suggest your pets teeth be cleaned if tartar build-up is occurring.
  • Dental Xrays - When we go to the dentist we accept that X-rays are often taken of our teeth... but why? The answer is relatively simple- teeth that look normal on the outside aren’t always healthy on the inside or below the gums. The same is true for our pets- although there is an important difference. Pets can not tell us when they have a tooth ache, so we have to rely more on X-rays to get an idea of whether they have dental discomfort. We can often tell you if there are signs of problems, and can discuss the use of X-rays to determine which teeth are problematic and should be treated. X-rays are the best possible way to ensure your pet doesn’t have sore teeth.
  • X-rays - most obviously x-rays are needed to assess bone and joint problems. However they can also be very important to assess chest problems, abdominal problems, spinal problems- in fact x-rays can be useful with problems over the whole body. Digital X-rays are a faster and cleaner way of looking inside your pet. They allow us to minimise the amount of X-rays that you pet is exposed to.
  • Ultrasound - this is being used more and more with pets because it provides a lot of information and doesn't involve any discomfort to the animal. More common uses are for pregnancy diagnosis, diagnosis of heart conditions, assessment of organs such as liver, spleen, kidneys, bladder etc.. There are some conditions that can not be assessed properly (and therefore treated properly) without ultrasound eg. some heart diseases.
  • ECG - there is no other way of diagnosing and therefore correctly treating some heart conditions without ECG
  • In-house blood testing - sending blood away for testing often takes 24 hours. For emergencies, routine checks before surgery, or quite simply for fast answers, in-house testing is important.
  • Scoping - a gentle and simple way of seeing things that can’t otherwise be seen.
