We are able to provide a wide range of surgical services, ranging from:

  • Soft tissue: exploratory, biopsy, grass seed extraction, abscess drainage, etc.
  • Corrective surgeries: soft palate resection, stenotic nasal wedge resection, eyelid corrections, entropion or ectropion, distichaisis removal
  • Health cosmetic surgeries, removing folds of skin e.g. vulvoplasty to prevent urine scald
  • Cancer/tumour surgery, with emphasis placed on speed of removal if this is essential
  • Orthopaedics (pinning/plating fractures) plating is more often used as is a better way of fixing a fracture. Pins  can  be used   as  often  is  more  economic repair and  Cheaper is  not necessarily   better  .
  • Cruciate surgery, from the easier modified technique ( IN  SMALL  BREED DOGS <10KG )  to the specialist TPLO surgeries often referred to specialists,  can be  done  in clinic by  a  visiting  Orthopedic surgeon  ,  reducing   your  costs
  • Luxating patella surgeries  with great results.
