INTRODUCTION TO SURGERYWe offer a range a surgical procedures from routine neuters to spinal surgery, available to both our clients or as a referral from surrounding veterinary practices. We work along with popular charities such as the Cats Protection and Dogs Trust for neutering at discounted pricing (you must contact the charity direct to see if you qualify for this). All of our veterinary surgeons are highly skilled and qualified, some of which are certificate holders in soft tissue surgery. When your pet undergoes any surgery they will recieive an anaesthetic. Once the vet and the nursing team is ready to perform the operation your pet will be given a mild sedative to relax them and then an anaesthetic will be administered. Your pet will then be operated on in one of our fully equipped surgical theatres, whilst being constantly monitored by our professional team of veterinary nurses. We aim to talk you through some of our surgical facilites and the benefits for your pets.
NEUTERINGVNeutering is a very important for both male and female dogs and cats, and one of the most important things you can do for your pet, not only are there proven health benefits, but it can sometimes help with socialising issues. Benefits: Pregnancy is stressful to the biology of a dog. Whilst a healthy male dog can father hundreds of puppies without any significant stress, female dogs use a lot of energy and nutrient during pregnancy and lactation. Neutering is the most responsible thing you can do as a pet owner, not only does it help to prevent unwanted pregnancies there are also many other health benefits including: – Reduces the risk of potentially fatal testicular tumours in male cats and dogs. – Reduces the risk of potentially fatal mammary tumours in female cats and dogs. – Prevents pyometra, (infection of the uterus), in female cats and dogs. – Can sometimes help to reduce aggression and/or hyperactivity.
Oral health and hygiene is as important for our pets as it is for us. We offer nurse clincs to check your pets oral hygiene and our qualified nurses can give you advise on how to control it. With the right treatment and oral routine your pet can fight against;
- bad breath
- gum disease
- tartar build up
- tooth decay
The bacteria in the mouth can lead to kidney and heart disease if not correctly taken care of.
On your visit our veterinary team will assess your pets mouth and decide what treatment is necessary. Sometimes treatment is not needed and there are a range of home care products to use. Alternativley a scale a polish may be necessary to remove tartar and polish the teeth. Your pet may need surgical extractions if the tooth decay is prolonged and the tooth is causing pain. We offer a dental package that covers your pets dental needs at a great price.
