Consultation Rooms

Our consultation rooms are designed to be a simple and unintimidating environment. They are used for initial assessment of less critical patients and discussion with owners, prior to admitting animals for treatment. More critical cases will be transferred directly to the treatment area upon arrival.

Surgery

Our surgery suite is equipped with advanced anaesthetic and ventilation machines complete with full monitoring equipment (including blood pressure, SpO2, PCO2, Body Temperature, E.C.G.), heating facilities, suction machines and more.

Hospitalisation

All hospitalised patients are monitored continuously throughout their stay. There are doctors and trained personnel on duty at all times. Your companion stays in a comfortable, clean cage visible to all of our staff. We discourage toys and blankets from home, as with the high amount of traffic it is difficult to guarantee that they will return home.
