Anaesthesia and Surgery


We know that leaving your pet for an operation can be a major concern to you, and we want to do all we can to put your mind at rest. If your pet needs to stay with us for tests or treatment, we will explain what is planned and gain your full consent. Our separate dog and cat wards are warm and comfortable and each has its own ward nurse to provide personal care for every in-patient. Our wards are routinely staffed between 7am - 10pm.  In addition to this we are able to provide nursing care throughout the night for our critical patients.

We are equipped and have the the training and experience to perform almost any operation your pet may need. Whether it is a young cat to be speyed or a complex fracture repair, your pet will benefit from the same high standards of sterility, anaesthetic monitoring and rigorous post-operative care.

The practice has a large prep room and two sterile theatres where surgeons are gloved and gowned, as in a human operating theatre. Anaesthetics are administered only by veterinary surgeons and monitored only by qualified veterinary nurses. All surgical patients are given appropriate drugs to control pain. Modern anaesthetic agents and techniques are very safe, however in older patients we may suggest a blood screen prior to surgery to detect any problems that could affect anaesthetic risk.
