Specific dental equipment for dogs, cats and rabbits:
We have a range of high tech dental equipment that enables us to de-scale, clean and remove your pet’s teeth.
Specially designed dental x-ray plates allowing us to x-ray your pet’s teeth to diagnose problems below the jaw-line.
Dedicated on-site laboratory including:
IDEXX haematology and biochemistry analysers – This means we can process a large number of blood samples on-site and have the results with you that same day.
Equipment to test urine and faecal samples
A microscope enhanced with a digital camera – This enables us to examine slides we process in-house and to take pictures of the results. We’re able to attach images to your pet’s file, show you (if you wish) and use them for comparison in the future.
A dedicated surgical suite including:
Sevoflurane anaesthetic – This is one of the new generations of anaesthetic agents. It is fast-acting, safe with very few side effects, and is the anaesthetic agent of choice in hospitals for children. Your pet should experience very little post-operative ‘hangover’ commonly associated with other anaesthetics and we are one of the first veterinary practices in the UK to be using this for all anaesthetics.
Blood pressure monitoring
Multi-parameter monitoring – This measures your pet’s heart rate, oxygen saturation, ECG, temperature and blood pressure.
Separate Waiting Areas
Separate waiting areas and hospital wards for cats and dogs:
Feline hospitalisation cages made from fibreglass – These cages are warm, quiet, non-reflective and have tinted glass doors.
Dog hospitalisation cages – These range in size to accommodate all dogs from toy to giant breeds. We also have 2 walk-in kennels with supportive mattresses for our large and giant breed patients.
Inpatient Care Facilities for Pets
Our surgeries offer a variety of inpatient pet care services which include:
- Separate dog and cat wards to reduce stress in our feline patients
- Perspex kennels with stainless steel bars for dogs, which allows thorough disinfection and cleaning between patients
- Perspex kennels with tinted perspex doors for cats which are more cat friendly than traditional stainless steel kennels
- Specialised oxygen kennel for animals suffering from breathing difficulties
- Separate isolation kennel for barrier nursing of patients with infectious diseases
- Walk-in kennels with easy clean padded mattresses for our larger canine patients
- Absorbable, cosy vet beds for all patients and blankets for post-op recovery
- Inpatient dogs are routinely taken out under supervision every 4 hours (or more often if needed)
