Facilities

Diagnostics

Lab

Our in house laboratory provides same day results for most cases, usually within a couple of hours. A daily courier service enables us to use a specialist external laboratory for more in depth investigations with minimal delay to initiating appropriate treatment.

Digital radiography

Our digital X-ray unit allows us to obtain a full range of images to assess ill or injured animals from the smallest kitten to the largest Mastiff or Great Dane.

Ultrasonography

Ultrasound examinations are an integral part of internal medicine allowing us to assess the structure of internal organs such as the liver spleen and intestine and reproductive tract, including pregnancy diagnosis. We can also perform cardiac scans to assess heart structure and function.

Videoendoscopy

We have a range of scopes allowing us to image airways and gastrointestinal tract for diagnostic procedures (such as obtaining biopsies) or treatment (such as foreign body removal).

Inpatient facilities

We have separate wards for canine and feline patients to minimise stress whilst your pet is hospitalised with us. An inpatient camera allows us to monitor your pet on the rare occasion when a member of staff is not present.

Surgery

In addition to facilities for routine surgery we have specialised equipment for orthopaedic procedures such as fracture repairs and cruciate surgery. We also perform most soft tissue procedures in house. Please speak with one of our experienced surgeons if you have any further queries.

Laparoscopy

We now have state of the art equipment enabling us to perform keyhole (laparoscopic) surgery on your pet.  Most of our bitch spays are now carried out in this way (at an additional cost) leading to less post-operative complications and quicker recovery.  It can be used for numerous other procedures including taking biopsies from the abdomen, bladder surgery and removal of retained testicles.

Please ask one of our vets if you would like more information.


Emergency care

We are proud to offer a 24hrs a day 365 days per year out of hours cover for our registered clients. Please phone 01280 812057 at any time to obtain the number of the duty vet. This also enables us to offer hospitalisation of unwell or post-operative cases for on-going care.
