Practice Type: Part of a group

Facilities: The main surgery at Maids Moreton (near Buckingham) is equipped with full diagnostic, laboratory, surgical, and hospitalisation facilities. This enables them to have the satisfaction of investigating and treating the patients to a high clinical standard whilst referring to specialists when appropriate. They perform their own cardiac scans, endoscopy (rhinoscopy & otoscopy all the way through to colonoscopy), laparoscopy (90%+ of spays are “keyhole”), fracture repair, and stifle TTA’s; and improve the quality of the surgical procedures and outcomes with bipolar diathermy, harmonic scalpels and “Enseal” equipment. Dental x-rays are available at both sites with air-driven equipment, sharp instruments, and “Vet-tome” to make “dentals” a pleasure rather than a chore.
