The Practice:

This is a multi-site vet across 4 practices in the Gloucestershire area. The practice was extensively redeveloped to provide a modern air-conditioned clinic with superb facilities for providing the best veterinary care in Gloucester. They offer a full range of treatments from health checks to emergency operations and intensive care facilities for critical care. Run a fully equipped lab so results can be accessed as quickly as possible. In-house, the investigation is backed up with a referral to a large commercial outside lab who specializes in a fast turn around to get the answers as soon as possible. The imaging suite includes a state of the art digital x-ray machine with floating bucky table for all things orthopaedic and cardiothoracic, a flexible fibre optic endoscope for gastrointestinal investigation and a colour flow Doppler ultrasound machine for investigating soft tissue diseases and heart disease. One of the strengths of the practice is the extensive range of surgical equipment and surgical expertise they possess.
