Routine surgeries are performed Monday to Friday in our dedicated operating theater. We pride ourselves on maintaining up-to-date techniques and knowledge and have a wide range of specialised equipment to help complete the most complex of surgeries. We have a dedicated surgical nurse for monitoring and assistance during procedures and our advanced monitoring equipment for blood pressure, heart rate, respiration rate, oxygenation and temperature. Pre-anaesthetic blood profile can be performed and patients may be maintained on intra-venous fluid therapy if required. 

Soft Tissue surgery encompasses any non-bone related surgery from basic lump removal to exploratory laparotomies and the correction of major gastro-intestinal accidents. We routinely perform de-sexings, caesarians, biopsies, wound stitch-ups and the removal of intestinal foreign bodies. 

Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repair with plates, pins and wires, ligament repair and amputations. Our Veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our fully equipped surgical suite allow us to perform many complex and involved procedures. 

Follow-up phone calls and revisits form a vital part of our service to ensure your pet recovers uneventfully and pain free.
