Vet Surgery


Our experienced Veterinarians are able to perform a range of routine or complex soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures.

Our Hospitals possess the latest surgical equipment, which means that we can perform routine or complex procedures on-site. 

We can perform:

  • Curative surgery – surgery to correct certain conditions (such as a cruciate ligament or fracture repairs).
  • Diagnostic surgery – such as explorative procedures or taking biopsy samples.
  • Palliative surgery – performed with the aim to make an animal more comfortable for as long as possible (such as reducing the size of a tumour).
