Plastic surgery style procedures are carried out by Partner Vet Rod Stroud BVSc MRCVS, and his experienced team. Rod is known for taking a pioneering approach, performing some procedures in such a way that will promote quicker healing and a better outcome for the dog.
Rod is always looking for the solution that will provide the best quality of life outcome for the animal. For example, a tracheostomy is seen as a rare procedure to be carried out on animals, however, Rod believes that in some cases, this is the last resort to help a suffering dog and has achieved excellent results.
Book an appointment with Rod to discuss your pet’s current health and to see if they would benefit from this type of treatment.
Pugs, french bulldogs, bulldogs, boxers…
Animals with flat faces and small airways can be prone to severe breathing difficulties which result in excess flatulence, snoring, passing out from lack of oxygen and other health issues. This can be very distressing for the dog and most certainly they will have a poor quality of life. Our team can perform a nasal wedge resection (nose job) and a soft tissue resection to open up the airways and allow the dog to breathe more easily. In some dogs where the case is more severe, a tracheostomy may be necessary, where a permanent hole is created in the dog’s windpipe so that more air can be breathed in.
Chow chows, shar pei, spaniel breeds, basset hounds, pugs, bulldogs…
Animals with excessive skin folds around their face and/or body can suffer from repeated infections and discomfort, which can be alleviated by removing or pulling back some of the excessive skin. The skin is then stapled in place and allowed to heal. Healing time can differ from dog to dog, however, once the staples are removed, the dog is able to lead a happy and healthy life. This procedure will most likely alter the dog’s appearance, however we feel that quality of life is most important.
Chow chows, spaniel breeds, basset hounds…
Some dogs develop a condition called entropion, where the excessive skin around the face is so heavy that it pushes the skin forwards / downwards and causes the dog’s eyelids to fold inwards. The eyelashes start irritate the dog’s eye and growing inwards. Entropion can also be caused if the dog has exceptionally droopy lower lids that pull the upper lid over the eye itself. Entropion can impair vision and cause severe discomfort to the dog. It can also lead to blindness if left untreated. By removing sections around the eyelid, the condition can be corrected, enabling the dog to lead a happy life again. See our case studies below.
Wonderful vet practice all staff from front desk to nurses all the vets first class well done.Eileen Godfrey, Facebook
It’s took me to now to write this review I’m afraid & I do apologise client vets . 4 weeks ago my 2 1/2 year old shih tzu TINY was admitted for 24 hour care due to kidney failure, after 3 days Barbara (the vet) called me while my little girl was being operated on to tell me the prognosis, she was very honest with me and it broke my heart cos I had to let my baby girl go! I didn’t want her to suffer! Barbara is a fantastic vet & very honest, I must also say Janine (nurse) who looked after my Tiny was so lovely & I want to thank you for everything you both did for her! I’m not ready to have another baby shih tzu yet & won’t be for a while but when I am I will definitely be going back to clent vets! These guys are the best ever xxJane Wood, Facebook
I’d like to thank clent hills and who ever brought our jack Russell in who’d taken herself on a walk and was found, Thankyou so much for contacting us and finding her!Charlotte Pearman, Facebook
Lovely warm and professional welcome. So pleased we now have them as our vetsAngela Jane Passey, Facebook
Took my dog on a long journey to Cornwall recently. Called Clent Hills to take advice on the journey and how to keep my dog calm etc – they were fantastic. Had lots of great advice and were very supportive. We all had a great time!Laura U, Best of Bromsgrove
We’d just like to say a very big ‘THANK YOU’ to all the staff at Clent Hills Bromsgrove and Hagley. You have brought Bob safely through 2 major operations in the last 3 years and have always been supportive to us humans in working through the decisions to be made, and offering the highest level of care and concern to Bob during his ops and his recovery period. Thank you everyone! We know that things remain uncertain for his longer-term, but he is now pain free and able to still enjoy everything that he has always enjoyed.
Our other 2 dogs have only visited for routine health checks/ Vaccinations etc., thankfully, but they always receive a warm welcome and are both graduates of the wonderful Puppy Parties 🙂.
Thank you from the whole family <3Jayne De Rooy, Facebook
Have been at Clent Hills vets for many many years in the past and recently again with our other dog. Can’t say enough good things about the staff and vets there as they are friendly and very professional. I would not go anywhere else.Jason Wedgburrow, Facebook
