Surgery

We have modern facilities and many years of experience performing surgeries on small animals.


Our vets are trained in a range of operations from routine neutering to more complicated soft tissue or orthopaedic surgery.


Should your animal require a medical or surgical procedure to be carried out we provide facilities that allow for the very highest standards of care.


The theatre is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment to measure blood pressure, oxygen levels and temperature as well as capnography to closely monitor breathing during anaesthetics.


Post Operative care for your pet


Always follow your vet’s advice. They will give you specific advice tailored to your pet, the procedures they’ve had and their individual needs.


After an operation, you’ll get a phone call from the nursing team to arrange a discharge appointment with your vet or vet nurse to go over the care of your pet after anaesthetic.


When you take your pets home, they will most likely be sleepy and quiet. This is normal as the full effects of the anaesthetic wear off. It is advisable to keep cats indoors and to keep your dogs on their lead during walks until fully recovered.


Puppies and dogs MUST be starved from 7pm the evening before the day of operating, and water can be left down until you bring them in. Please do not give any treats as an empty stomach is critical for safe anaesthesia. Dogs should be taken for a walk to go to the toilet before being admitted unless otherwise instructed by your vet.


Kittens and cats also MUST be starved from 7pm the evening before the day of operating, and water can be left down until you bring them in. Keeping them indoors the night before their operation to ensure they have an empty stomach is critical for safe anaesthesia.


Rabbits and guinea pigs MUST NOT BE STARVED. They should have access to food and water up until they are admitted.
