Should your pet become unwell and require surgery or overnight care, our hospital is fully equipped with everything they could need.
We know that being away from home can be a stressful time for pets so we aim to reduce the upset where possible. Cats can relax in their own peaceful cattery whilst the dogs can spread out in our large kennels. Rabbits and other small pets can find shelter in our exotics ward which is quiet and peaceful.
All of our hospital wards are individually temperature controlled and our dog ward has direct access to our garden for easy toilet breaks. The housing is sturdy, provides a barrier for infection control, easy to clean and sterilise and can be adapted for larger animals.
Your pet will be comfortable tucked up in our wide range of comfy bedding, blankets and igloos, which are washed after every use. We also have a good range of toys and premium food to keep them as comfortable and well fed during their visit.
Dogs can enjoy a stroll in our garden area to the rear of the practice and our cat visitors love the peace and quiet of their separate cat ward, complete with pheromone diffusers to help them relax.
Who will be looking after your pet?
Animals in our hospital are cared for by our Kennel Nurses who are responsible for ensuring our inpatients have food, water, clean bedding and the correct medication and the right times.
Kennel nurses may be student veterinary nurses or registered veterinary nurses (RVNs). Student nurses will have worked at the practice for a minimum of 1 year as a consult assistant before they begin college, then after a year at college they begin Kennel Nurse shifts; at all times they are overseen by our Vets and senior RVNs, who work together to create a treatment and care plan for your pet.
So you can rest assured knowing that your pet is never left alone and is receiving around the clock care.
