Orthopaedics and spinal surgery

Our orthopaedic surgeons are highly trained and experienced in their field. With the support of knowledgeable and dedicated veterinary nurses we are able to rapidly diagnose and treat a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions in dogs and cats.

Our operating theatres are maintained to the highest standard and we have advanced anaesthetic and orthopaedic equipment to hand.

Every patient receives tailored care and compassion to include 24 hour hospitalisation following surgery and access to our physiotherapist and hydrotherapy suite.

We aim to ensure excellent treatment, effective pain management and on-going rehabilitation for your pet.
