During surgery

We aim to improve the quality of life of your pet, whilst minimising their discomfort and speeding up the recovery process. As such, we recommend a number of essential services such as a blood test to reduce the risks of the anaesthetic. Throughout the surgery, we also utilise state-of-the-art monitoring equipment to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable. Lastly, we always recommend pain relief for your pet during and after the procedure.

In addition to this, our team will provide you with important information and advice during their recovery period.
