On Site Laboratory
On-site Blood Testing
Blood tests take about 20 minutes to run. This allows us to check for a range of diseases including: liver, kidney, diabetes, anaemia, some blood clotting disorders.

While every anaesthetic carries some degree of risk our equipment and anaesthesia protocols keeps this to an absolute minimum allowing us to manage a wide range of surgical procedures. Combined with our comfortable and secure recovery facilities you can rest assured your pets are in the safe hands.
Soft Tissue and Orthopaedic Surgery
Pets need to be starved from the night before their operation (water is OK). We will give you precise information on what time to withhold food. You will be required to sign a consent form to give permission for a general anaesthetic and for the surgery, this is a good time to check we have an up to date mobile number to keep you informed about your pet’s op and their recovery.
As the probe is using radiowaves rather than an electrical circuit, the antena positioned under the patient remains cold throughout the procedure. Applications include, dental, head, neck and general surgery.
Plaque builds up on teeth and combines with minerals in saliva to produce calculus, a hard material that needs an ultrasonic descaler to remove it.
Signs of dental disease can include one or more of the following… bad breath (halitosis), dribbling, a reluctance or refusal to eat, red or bleeding gums, dark stained or loose teeth and pawing at the mouth. Ignoring these signs can lead to problems affecting the jaw bone, throat and even diseases in organs like the heart and liver.
Getting your pet checked for dental disease is easy, just contact the surgery and arrange a free check up with one of our nurses.
