We have a visiting peripatetic specialist orthopaedic surgeon who helps us with particularly difficult cases.  We have recently invested in laparoscopy and are about to start training our vets in the use of this equipment.

About us

Our purpose-built hospital has 8 consulting rooms including 2 dedicated cat rooms with cat only waiting area. We also have a separate consulting room and waiting room for euthanasia consults to ensure clients have privacy and peace in such difficult times.

Our in-house lab includes urine sediment exam (Idexx Sedivue), dipstix analyser, biochemistry and haematology machines, and much more.

We have recently acquired a beautiful new ultrasound machine (My Lab X7) with a 21"LED screen. As well as a dental radiography (IM3 CR7 system) which we aim to get all our vets trained up on. Our patient's that are having dental extractions will all receive nerve blocks and again we will support and help all vets learn if no prior experience. Analgesia is a priority for us and we will try and include local anaesthetic techniques wherever we can.

Our CT scanner is a 16 slice GE system. We do not interpret the images ourselves but instead send all the data to Vet CT for a specialist report. We are steadily training all of our nurses to be able to operate the CT scanner but vets are encouraged to learn too. We also offer a 'scan only' referral service to local practices.

We manage all of our chemotherapy patients and order our drugs through Chemopet who deliver it all pre-drawn. This is something we are always happy to help vets with and we will often do COP and CHOP protocols for lymphoma and protocols for mast cell neoplasia.
