Care of inpatients

Our hospitalisation facilities are based at our Blackford premises. Should your pet require overnight or weekend hospitalisation, they will be cared for by a dedicated small animal vet and nurse.

Staff members do not routinely stay on the premises however your pet will be attended to at regular intervals, as frequently as their condition dictates. Should their condition be life-threatening and/or serious enough to require constant monitoring, staff will discuss appropriate options and costs with you.

Second opinions/referrals

Our vets will frequently discuss complex cases with colleagues for second opinions, both in-house and externally at referral centres.

If you would like to seek a second opinion from a different practice then we are happy to send the relevant history to a practice of your choosing. If your pet has a condition which requires more advanced investigations or more specialised services than we are able to offer in house, then we will always discuss referral options with you.
