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.

Thank you all so much for caring for Storm today whilst he was in for his little op. Once again, 5* service all round xBeverley Stanton, Facebook
I recently registered my cat Custard here and booked her in to be spayed and microchipped. I’m glad I chose this practice, everyone is so nice and caring and communicated every step of the way – even asking me whether I wanted them to operate through her side or tummy (apparently on this breed some owners don’t want a scar on the side). I was pleasantly surprised to receive a follow up call today to check how Custard wasClare Foster, Facebook
Koby my chocolate lab had a small op on friday and was given lots of love from his favourite nurse emma. I walked in to get him and was told that the pair were inseparable!! He’s making a great recovery and sends lots of licks to his favourite nurse emma.Sarah Wheeler, 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
Sorted Alfred out! Great service lovely staff; thank you!Pete Collins, Facebook
I would definitely recommend you without a doubt, the care we receive is excellent. I’m able to just drop in and get over-the- counter general advice when I need it, and nothing seems too much trouble here. Plus, my dogs have always loved coming to this Vets!Beverley Stanton, Blog
