Pet hospitalisation and care

Our purpose-built, modern hospitalisation ward contains warm, secure and hygienic kennels with regular nurse supervision which allows our in-patients to settle in comfortably. All in-patients have an individual record card, allowing staff to regularly monitor their progress. A separate isolation ward is available for any animals who may be carrying an infectious disease.

Surgical suite

Soon after the practice opened, a large extension was added at the rear of the premises to include a purpose-built operating suite. This features a large preparation area and a separate operating theatre. Test strips are used with a modern autoclave to ensure thorough sterilisation of all surgical instruments. The preparation room can be used for bandaging, taking blood samples, and preparing animals for theatre.

Anaesthesia

Almost all surgical procedures in small animals will be carried out under a general anaesthetic. Anaesthesia in our practice is always tailored to the individual pet. A wide range of modern anaesthetics, along with pulse oximeter monitoring and constant supervision by qualified staff, ensures that any anaesthetic risk at Springbank is kept to an absolute minimum. We can anaesthetise the smallest to the largest patients. For minor procedures, we may advise that sedation will be adequate.

Dispensary

Our extensive range of veterinary medicines allow us to supply your pet with the required treatment immediately. For the occasional items which are not kept in stock, we have a daily delivery, Monday to Friday, which means that most items required can be with us the following day.

Diagnostic X-ray and ultrasound

Ultrasonography is used both as a diagnostic tool for examining internal organs, and also for pregnancy diagnosis. At Springbank, we ensure that all X-rays are of excellent, diagnostic quality with results available the same day.

Dentistry

At Springbank, we have a VETair Dental Machine and an Ultrasonic Scaler. This means we can offer our patients dental services, such as tooth extraction, scaling and polishing.

In-house laboratory

We are very fortunate to have our own laboratory. This means that many routine laboratory investigations can be carried out within the practice, allowing you to receive test results the same day. Tests that we carry out at the surgery include: investigative blood tests, pre-anaesthetic profiles, hyperthyroid tests, initial skin scrapings, geriatric profiles, feline leukaemia testing, woods lamp ringworm tests, urine tests and FIV tests.
