What Happens After I Book An Appointment?

When you bring your pets to us, we usually start with a consultation. We’ll spend 20 to 60 minutes discussing your pet’s history whilst performing all necessary examinations. Our trained specialists will make clear recommendations as to how we should proceed in investigating and treating your pet’s problem.

We’ll make you fully aware of all costs and risks, as well as the expected outcome. If you’re happy for us to proceed, in most cases surgery can commence on the very same day.

All of our specialist veterinary services are also available on a referral basis.
