Surgery tour

Parking : We have a spacious carpark to the front of the building almost straight off the main road. Its big enough to fit in the largest horselorry or tractor, so don’t worry about your chosen method of transport!
Entrance
Reception and Waiting Room : Reception is through the ‘window’ in the waiting room. Please make yourself known to the person manning the desk (quite often the vets will be wandering about as well) and then take a seat with your pet. The waiting room can occasionally get a little crowded due to popular demand(!) so some clients prefer to sit outside under the tree and wait to be called in. As long as you’ve booked in at reception we’ll make sure you don’t miss your turn!

Consultation Rooms : We have two consulting rooms, both leading off to either side from the waiting room. These are fully equiped for consulting, but occasionally we may need to use specialised equipment and may take your pet through to the prep room if necessary.

Toilets : Please ask at reception for the toilet facilities.

Laboratory : The lab holds the in house blood testing machines (haematology and biochemistry) allowing us to get your pets blood results in little more than 10 minutes. There is also a centrifuge, 2 microscopes, blood glucose reader, refractometer, woods lamp and reagents/stains for testing urine, faeces, blood and skin scrapes/ hair plucks.
Kennels : We have various sizes of kennels, so no matter how big your dog, we can still accomodate them comfortably. We also have an isolation pen on the other side of the building for pets that may have an infectious disease, but still require hospitalisation.

Prep. Room : This is where we do minor surgical procedures, and prepare patients ready for operating. There is an adjustable operating table allowing us to accomodate all sizes of pet.
Operating Theatre : We have a newly renovated theatre with adjustable operating table, specialist lighting and heating, oxygen and scrub sink.

Stables : The stable block and corral built behind the surgery allows us to hospitalise horses, foals and some farm animals. We also carry out routine equine fertility work here.
