We offer a complete range of pet health services.

As you’d expect, we can offer a complete range of treatments to help keep your pet in great shape, or get them back on track if they’ve been unwell.

Our specialist diagnostic services include:

We use a range of techniques to find out what has caused your pet to become unwell. The more quickly and accurately we can find the problem, the more quickly and accurately we can administer treatment.

Laboratory

Having our own laboratory ensure that samples can be analysed as quickly as possible, which is crucial when dealing with urgent cases.

Diagnostic x-ray

Our diagnostic x-ray system allows a detailed analysis of radiographs. Traditionally “x-rays” have been thought of as a tool to look at bones. Whilst this is indeed true, we also use this technique to assess the size of organs within the body.

Ultrasonography

Where “x-rays” or radiography give us an idea of the size of the organs within the abdomen, ultrasound can give us an idea of the organ structure.

Bronchoscopy

This is a technique where we pass a flexible scope down the airway to visualise the respiratory tract. It is a means of sampling tissue/secretions and enables us to see any possible abnormalities.

Gastroscopy

In this technique a scope is passed down the oesophagus and into the stomach. In doing so we are able to assess the oesophageal and stomach lining.

Once we have identified the problem with your pet, we have a range of surgical and medical procedures to get them back on track.

Our supplementary services include:

 We also offer a range of practices such as Acupuncture and Rehabilitation as a way to aid healing and supplement the other medical and surgical procedures which we provide.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a system of healing which has been practiced on humans and animals for 40,000 years. It is still the major form of medical treatment for nearly a quarter of the world’s population and in this country is available on the NHS. Acupuncture in animals is regarded by the law as an act of veterinary surgery and as such may only be carried out in the UK by a veterinary surgeon.

In our practice it is carried out by Terry Girling and his wife, Sarah Coombs-Girling, both of whom have been using this technique for more than twenty years. Sarah has an internationally recognised certificate in veterinary acupuncture and practices on horses as well as helping Terry with acupuncture on pets at the surgery. We routinely use acupuncture to relieve the pain of muscular and bony conditions including arthritis. Cases have included dogs that are lame, reluctant to jump into a car, stiff when getting up or panting excessively at exercise.

Rehabilitation Centre

We offer Physiotherapy at our Honeysuckle Veterinary Rehabilitation Centre. We believe in a holistic approach to rehabilitation, promoting exercise and health management. Our initial consultations are 60 minute long allowing a thorough examination and treatment planning, and further sessions will be determined by the needs of your pet.

We also offer Hydrotherapy treatment, which is carried out by a Registered Veterinary Nurse specialised in rehabilitation. Treatment in the water may be in the hydrotherapy pool, or water treadmill. Water based treatment is used to treat a range of conditions, including orthopaedic, neurological and performance issues.
