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.

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.
Recently started taking my rabbit to Clent Hills Vets (Hagley) and was very pleased with the friendly staff and their professionalism.Julia Jones, Facebook
Clent hills vets are amazing, they’re very professional yet friendly. You know that when you have your pets in their care they are well looked after and in good hands. My rabbit was took in not long ago who sadly passed away and they were so empathetic and caring. Everything I needed in regards to support or any questions I had to ask they answered in detail and sympathetically. I wouldn’t have my pets going to any other vets and have recommended to family and friends who now take their pets to Clent Hills too. Thank you for all the hard work you do.Sadie Goddard, Facebook

Well where do i start! This time 2 weeks ago we were prepared to say goodnight to our very special Boy Buddy who was extremely poorly but with the love and dedication of Alan Barbara and girls he is almost back to his old self. I can not thank the team enough, it is their compassion that stands out, the girls on reception all make a fuse of him the nurses pop out to see him whilst waiting for Alan or Barbara. They are without a doubt Alan and his Angels 🙂 xxxCarol Wilde, Facebook
