WE ARE NOW OPEN FULL HOURS FOR ALL PATIENTS AND ARE INVITING PEOPLE INTO THE PRACTICE ONCE AGAIN. As of the 24th July 2020, we have been welcoming a limited number of clients into the practice. Video consults are still available for those who wish to reduce their contact with others or who are self isolating. For the safety of all people who enter the practice, we have installed perspex screens in certain areas. We are only allowing a maximum of 2 households (2 people per household max.) into the premises at any one time. Please be aware that only one person may be able to accompany a pet into the consultation room itself (the other person may need to wait in reception). We are also asking that all visitors and clients wear a mask at all times when in the practice. There are exceptions for those who may struggle with these measures and please do call if you have any concerns. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation.
Our new ultrasound scanner, with one of its probes attached. (The probe is covered in a pink protective plastic sleeve)
We have just got a new ultrasound scanner worth over £25000 and is top of the range!
Ultrasound scans allow us to see inside of our patients in a totally noninvasive and painless way. This new scanner replaces our older scanner and will allow us to see more detail, make more precise measurements and therefore allow faster diagnosis and treatment to many of our pet patients.
We are more than happy to demo it to anyone who would like to see what it can do.
