We are open for business to see emergencies and to dispense and deliver medication. However, due to the current coronavirus pandemic, we are making some changes and taking addtional steps to ensure that we can continue to stay open for emergencies and delivery of medication for as long as it is safe to do so. Therefore, for the time being , we are closed on Saturdays and will not be seeing any non-emergency patients in the practice at any time. However, please book a video or telephone consultation and if, following this, we think your pet needs to be examined urgently, we will make arrangements to see them in the practice or deliver medications to you. Please see here for the information emails sent to our clients about this situation and do call if you have any queries.
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.
