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.


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 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.


Dogs MUST be starved from 11pm the evening before the day of operating, but water can be left down. 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.


Cats also MUST be starved from 11pm the evening before the day of operating, but water can be left down. 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. Please bring a small selection of their usual diet with them and their housing companion, unless otherwise instructed.
