The Practice:
A modern and bright vet surgery with full surgical facilities on-site, including two fully-equipped operating theatres, their own intensive care facilities - so animals requiring critical care can be hospitalised here overnight, separate dog and cat recovery wards, comprehensive in-house laboratory with the latest diagnostic equipment, including digital x-ray facility and endoscopy.
