We have two fully equipped operating theatres which enable us to perform multiple surgical procedures at high levels of efficiency and sterility.
There may be times when your pet needs to be hospitalised. We have separate wards for cats, dogs and exotic pets. This is very important to reduce stress levels for pets in hospital. Hospitalised pets are monitored closely, and we have extra equipment such as drip fluid pumps and fluid warmers to help us deliver medications and fluids more accurately and safely.
Our dog ward has several different sized cages catering for the many different sizes of our canine friends
Our cat ward is situated away from the main hub of the practice, providing a quiet environment for hospitalised cats
We have a specially equipped ward for exotics. This contains the necessary vivarium’s and aviaries needed to house our patients. It is located away from noise and provides a calm environment.
We have a comprehensive in-house imaging suite, including X-Ray, Ultrasound and Rigid and Flexible Endoscopy.
We have a Digital X-Ray Processor for imaging bones and soft tissue. As an essential diagnostic aid, this new processor provides us with faster, higher quality images.
Our ultrasound machine is a very useful diagnostic tool for imaging internal structures in the body. We frequently use scans to assess internal organs such as heart, liver, spleen, kidneys etc. We commonly perform pregnancy scans as well.
Rigid and Flexible Endoscopy
We use our rigid endoscope for examining ears and nasal cavities in dogs and cats as well as diagnostics in birds and other exotic pets.
Our flexible endoscopes enables imaging of the gastrointestinal tract, throat and passageways in the lungs, and aids in taking biopsies and samples for diagnosis.
We use our inhouse laboratory daily. We are able to process blood samples through our highspeed biochemistry, blood gas and haematology machines. We can assess urine samples inhouse too, detecting early kidney failure, diabetes and urinary tract infections. We have a microscope for looking at cytology ourselves, (cells in urine, faeces, blood, ear discharges and other body fluids) and have recently added a digital microscope to our lab that is able to send images of samples directly to specialist pathologists who can send us a report within hours of submission. We are able to offer fungal cultures for ringworm.
We can access a wide range of other tests through external laboratories.
We have a dedicated area for dental procedures. Our dental machines are equipped with scalers, polishers and drills to clean, polish and extract teeth. We are also able to take radiographs of individual teeth with our digital x ray plates.
