Consultations are by appointment, with the exception of emergencies, which of course always take priority. Normally you should not need to wait long for your appointment. Treatment of the same case by the same vet each time is encouraged to ensure continuity of treatment and assessment.
Home Visits can be arranged, but please remember that cost of travel and time, make these expensive. Limited facilities available in the home make a visit to the surgery more efficient and of greater value to your pet's health.
Surgery is performed on the premises. The dedicated operating theatre is fully equipped to cope with a wide range of orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery. An ultrasonic scaler and modern equipment is employed for dental work.
Anaesthesia is now a relatively safe procedure using modern equipment and drugs. Patients are closely watched by trained staff and continually assessed by a 'state of the art' respiratory and E.C.G. monitor.
