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.
AMAZING! Lovely staff & fantastic vets!! Been to many vets with my dogs but literally the best in the area!!!Georgina Taylor, Google
My dog actually enjoys going to the vets as Clent Hills are so friendly and welcoming he doesn’t get nervous. Thank you.Anne S, Best of Bromsgrove
I cannot recommend Clent hills enough and will sing their praises to anyone who will listen….. The staff today brought my luna back from the brink of death….. I genuinely thought she was dead not moving or breathing no heartbeat…. I turn up in a right state and I’m taken straight through to one of the most dedicated vets I have ever known… luna was worked on for twenty minutes tirelessly Barbara and the nurse refused to give up on my girl and I will be forever grateful to you and your amazing team for bringing my girl back to me…. x xHannah Stokes, Facebook
Thank you all so much for looking after Ollie today for his op and to the staff that helped me this morning when the little devil escaped from his basket he’s now back to his normal naughty loud self (thank goodness) you all do a fab job.Julie Owen, Facebook
Thank you so much to all the wonderful staff at Clent Hills Vets who have been fantastic with my Guinea Pig Martha over the last few weeks. Not only that but they have been very reassuring and not once dismissed my worry over her. She’s back home today after a procedure to flush her bladder and is currently munching away on her hay so is doing really well. See you all again in a few days for her post op checkup!Gemma Mallett, Facebook
Helpful and friendly. Explained everything simply. Knew exactly what I needed to do with the medication.Sarah Mobley, Google
Love them, been with them when sam was 8 weeks old, he is now 8 years old, have a new puppy now, and he’s going to his 1st puppy party this week, staff are always welcoming when you go.Lynn Stanton, Facebook
I’d just like to say a big thank you to Clent Hills on how well they handled the recent euthanasia of my 18 year old Cat and then two months later of my twelve and a half year old Staffie. I was a blubbering wreck on both occasions and from the time I went in to the time I returned to pick up their ashes, everyone was so helpful. It’s not a pleasant thing to have to do but I can honestly say having used Rod and his team now for nearly twenty years, I rate them very highly and thank them for looking after my pets through their full and fun lives.Mark Young, Facebook
