We have the capability to run a wide variety of laboratory tests. Blood samples can be tested for a whole range of parameters and can help reveal abnormalities in the liver & kidneys, as well as detect diabetes, anaemia, infection and some cancers. Screening blood tests are routinely used prior to anaesthesia and for monitoring patients on long term medication.
Our operating theatre is equipped to handle all types of surgery, from desexing to more complex orthopaedic cases. Each surgical patient receives the benefit of the safest anaesthetic agents and integrated oxygen delivery system. In addition, individual patients are assigned their own anaesthetic nurse who monitors them and records constant observations throughout the procedure and in recovery. In combination with state of the art monitoring equipment including blood pressure, ECG and pulse oximetry, our aim is to make anaesthesia as safe and uneventful as possible for your pet.
Adjacent to the theatre is the treatment room.
Recovery cages, with heat pads, are adjacent to the treatment room to allow for close supervision and monitoring of post operative patients.
Our dog ward is able to house up to 15 dogs in air-conditioned comfort. Our patients will be allocated the appropriate sized cage, and will be provided with soft bedding for the duration of their stay.
Our feline patients are kept in a separate ward, where they can enjoy some peace and quiet. They are provided with a soft bed, a litter tray and an igloo to hide in if required. We also use Feliway,™ a pheromone spray, designed to relax cats and make them feel at ease in unfamiliar surroundings.
We also have an isolation unit, should it be necessary to hospitalise a patient with an infectious disease.
