Hospitalisation

It is a very difficult time for owners when your pet has to stay in the hospital with us. We understand this and we treat your pet as we treat our own while they are here with us. Your pet receives one to one care from our nurses and we have a wide variety of foodstuffs for our residents who are particularly fussy over what they will eat!

Our wards are split into the dog ward (kennels), cat ward (cattery) and isolation ward. The kennel room has three different sizes of kennel, so we have a suitable space for every size of dog from a Chihuahua to a Great Dane.

Our cattery also has varying size kennels to ensure that we are able to put our longer term patients into a larger space to give them room to move around, if their condition allows. The isolation ward is used for animals who are potentially infectious to other animals or humans, and we have a variety of size kennels to be sure we are able to cater for any size of animal.

Our kennels are made from an insulated material to ensure that your pet is warm and comfortable during their stay with us. We also ensure that the kennels are lined with newspaper and ‘Vetbed’ which is absorbent, warm and comfy. 

Our vets and nurses check on our inpatients several times daily, to ensure that their condition is stable and their medication is administered appropriately. The first ward round of the day starts at 8.30am and all animals receive a full check over and the vet decides what medication they will receive, and when, over the course of the day. The ward nurse then has the responsibility of checking frequently on each patient and administering the medication as prescribed by the vet.
