The Practice: 
Their modern Veterinary Hospital includes the following facilities:
•             Sterile Operating Theatres - with a wide range of surgical equipment to enable them to carry out complicated, lifesaving operations on the spot as well as routine surgeries.

•             Endoscopic Examinations - allow the insertion of a flexible camera into the bowel and lungs of patients to diagnose many conditions that otherwise are difficult to detect. 
•             Ultrasound - to confirm and monitor pregnancies and also to carry out detailed examinations of the heart, liver and other abdominal organs without the risk of general anaesthetic or operations. 
•             A Practice Laboratory - They can carry out tests at night and at weekends when commercial laboratories are closed. Their lab also allows them to perform pre-anaesthetic blood tests on the day of surgery to check kidney and liver function so that the most appropriate method of anaesthesia can be used. 
•             X-rays - providing same-day results and just as importantly expert interpretation by an experienced veterinary surgeon with a certificate in veterinary radiology. 
•             Intensive Care & Hospitalisation Facilities - backed up by 24-hour nursing care.
