The practice has access to full surgical facilities of the type expected for a practice of our size including a dedicated small animal operating theatre with hydraulic operating table and anaesthetic monitoring equipment.
We are able to safely perform most general anaesthetic surgery procedures. Including:
A large proportion of our work is small animal castration and spaying. Owners chose to neuter their pets for many reasons; these can include breeding control, to assist with behavioural issues and on occasions for health reasons. Pets are always anaesthnitised for neutering and can often go home on the same day.

Depending on the size of the dog we suggest that castrations can be carried out between 6 months and 1 year.
Bitches may be spayed after 6 months and usually between their 1st and 2nd season.
Cats can be both spayed or castrated from 5 months of age.
Rabbits can be neutered from 5 months of age.
We can also perform neutering on ferrets, guinea pigs and other small furry animals. Feel free to give us a call to discuss this.
If your pet requires another type of surgical procedure, please consult with one of our veterinarians. We commonly perform many procedures, soft tissue surgery, trauma surgery and cosmetic surgery. These include corrective surgery on eyelids, nasal folds, dental procedures including cleaning and tooth extractions, rectal colon and urogenital surgery, caesarean sections, declawing and all types of cancer surgery.
We pride ourselves in putting our patient first and accordingly maintain useful contact with most of the veterinary schools and know where there are people to contact with particularly difficult or non-responsive cases. This means that medical and surgical cases which the practice feels would benefit from the expertise of others are sent willingly and promptly to people in who the practice has complete confidence and trust.
