Hospitalisation

If your pet needs to be hospitalised after a surgical procedure or for a medical problem, we are fully equipped to provide fluid therapy and intensive care. All hospitalised patients are checked and treatment is administered as required throughout the day and night by our nursing team.

Your pet will be well looked after during their stay with us. We have secure, warm and comfortable accommodation for pets of all sizes, and a separate isolation unit for infectious cases. Cats and dogs have their own hospital wards to minimise stress whilst they are here.

If your pet needs to stay with us for some time you are welcome to come and visit. Your nurse will be able to advise you on suitable visiting times each day.

Acute care

Acting fast is key when dealing with acute illness and injury. Our experienced team and state-of-the-art diagnostic tools, fluid therapy and intensive care facilities enable us to provide the best level of care. Whether your pet is suffering from an acute or severe illness or has suffered a trauma, you can count on us to ensure they receive expert veterinary care day and night.

Chronic & long-term illnesses

If your pet is suffering from chronic or long-term illnesses such as epilepsy, arthritis, heart disease or diabetes we can provide a range of treatments, referrals to specialist clinics and practical advice on how to best manage your pet’s condition.

Cancer patients

For certain types of cancer we can perform chemotherapy with the aim of prolonging your pet’s life. In some cases this may only be a matter of months or a year, however this can be a huge comfort to owners, so long as the animal isn’t suffering.

Bones, ligaments & joints

Orthopaedic surgery covers conditions involving the musculoskeletal system. Surgical and non-surgical means can be used to treat things such as trauma to the musculoskeletal system, tumours, infections, degenerative conditions and congenital conditions (existing from birth). Orthopaedic procedures are performed by Rod Stroud MRCVS, book an appointment with Rod to see how we can help your pet on the road to recovery.

On-site diagnostic facilities

Laboratory

Animal blood samples can be tested the same day using our on-site laboratory unit. This can greatly help to speed up diagnosis and ensure your pet starts the correct treatment plan as soon as possible. Other samples are sent to our external laboratory for testing.

ECG heart monitoring machine

An ECG (electrocardiogram) machine is used to monitor the electrical activity of the heart. Our ECG is most commonly used to aid in the diagnosis and long-term care of patients with a heart condition or defect.

X-ray

Digital x-ray machines allow us to examine large areas of the patient non-invasively and can provide a large amount of information, whether it is a suspected broken bone or a diseased internal organ. Results are immediate and can be transferred to other veterinary specialists. We routinely undertake x-rays for hip and elbow scoring as part of the BVA Health Schemes for certain dog breeds.

Ultrasound

State-of-the-art ultrasound machines obtain extremely useful images of a number of body systems. They are a non-invasive diagnostic aid that can provide us with invaluable diagnostic information. Ultrasound can also be used for pregnancy scanning.

Endoscopy

The endoscope allows us to view images of the intestinal and respiratory tract, using fibre-optics and a bright light source, that we would otherwise be unable to view. It also allows us to take small samples from these areas to help us diagnose your pet.

Exploratory laparoscopy

We can use exploratory laparoscopy, or keyhole surgery, to take biopsies from the liver, kidneys, intestines, pancreas and other organs. The ‘keyhole’ approach promotes fast healing and minimal discomfort and scarring for your pet. We also use keyhole surgery for female dog spays.
