Surgery

Most pets require surgery at some point in their lives.

We perform a wide variety of general surgical procedures in our onsite operating theatre.

Prior to, and on admission for any procedure, your pet will be fully examined and blood tests may be recommended, especially if your pet is older.

Generally your pet will be admitted in the morning and they’ll be home with you the same evening.  Modern anaesthetics ensure that your pet wakes up more quickly and it is rarely necessary for a pet to stay in hospital overnight.  

Prior to your pet being discharged from hospital, we’ll discuss their progress with you and provide post-operative care instructions, ensuring that you know how to look after your pet at home. If we need to see your pet for suture removal or post-operative assessment, we will also book your next appointment.
