Emergency Services

Small Animal & Equine Veterinary Practice

We pride ourselves in providing first class veterinary care in a relaxed and friendly environment

Surgical Facilities

Both our surgeries have inpatient wards providing accommodation for a range of species and breeds. We have separate isolation facilities for treatment of infectious cases. For patients requiring critical care we offer a range of facilities including an incubator, oxygen therapy and accurate metering of intravenous fluids via an infusion pump.

Our surgical theatres are fully equipped and provide the following facilities:
  • Heated, thermostatically controlled operating table
  • Electrosurgery
  • Cryosurgery
  • Electronic anaesthetic monitoring (displaying blood gas levels, blood pressure, body temperature and heart rate).
  • Modern, safe anaesthetic agents

Both our surgeries have dental equipment, including ultrasonic scalers, to enable us to perform routine dental care for your pets.
We have recently taken delivery of a dedicated veterinary ambulance used by our vets and nurses to collect and transport pets to and from or between our surgeries.

We now offer acupuncture clinics with one of our vets, Kathryn Jones BVetMed MRCVS. Kathryn is trained in providing veterinary acupuncture and can tailor a course to suit your pet’s specific requirements.

We have very good relationships with local referral centres, which when appropriate can be used for specialist diagnostics and treatment.

Insured Pets
Due to the ever increasing number of insured animals, we have a dedicated member of staff who deals with all insurance claims on your behalf. For a small fee we can complete any relevant paperwork to ensure you are reimbursed as quickly as possible. We request that payment is made at the time of treatment and insurers pay clients directly.
