We offer a wide variety of anesthetic protocols tailored to your pet's individual needs. We use state-of-the-art anesthetic machines and anaesthetic monitoring equipment. To maintain your pet’s body temperature during the anaesthetic and on recovery, a combination of heat pads and warming blankets are used, and your pet’s temperature is monitored closely: this is particularly important with smaller patients as they can lose body heat very quickly during anaesthetics. All anaesthetics are closely monitored by our veterinary nurses and nursing assistants.
Pain management is an important part of our pre-operative, intra-operative and post-operative anesthetic and medical protocol. All surgical patients, including those undergoing routine procedures such as ovariohysterectomy or castrations, receive pain control medication. We urge you to discuss operative pain management options with a member of our staff. We often send our surgical patients home on non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs to deal with post-operative pain, and arnica to aid with bruising and healing of the surgical wound.
We do not carry out specialist procedures such as orthopaedic operations at the surgery, but have several specialist centres which we can refer your pet to if they need this kind of specialist treatment.
If you have any questions about our surgical facilities, please do not hesitate to contact us.
