In-Patient Care


The practice nursing team have all entered their profession with the primary aim of caring for the patients entrusted to them and you can rest assured that your pet will receive the highest standard of care during their stay with us.

Your pet may spend the day here for a planned, elective operation such as ovariohysterectomy (speying) or be hospitalised for a longer period for complex surgery or medical investigations. Whatever the reason, our dedicated ward team led by Registered Qualified Veterinary Nurses, assisted by student veterinary nurses and ward assistants pride themselves on providing your pet with outstanding care and support during their recovery.

The nurses' responsibilities include regular assessments of each in-patient's vital signs, administration of medications and management of intravenous fluids. Just as important though, are their monitoring of pain control and attention to appetite, warmth and general comfort, not to mention that little extra bit of fuss that helps all patients, human or animal, recover quicker.

Our individual dog and cat ward each have a dedicated nurse and at admission we will give you a direct ward number so you can speak to the nurse who is looking after your pet for a progress report or just for re-assurance.
