We have a well equipped surgical suite with comprehensive anaesthesia, resuscitation gear and multi-parameter monitoring in-suite. We maintain a staff capable of performing all of the frequently encountered emergency surgeries. We can organize specialist surgeons out of hours when needed.
We have a separate ICU chamber with its own workspace and dedicated staff. We make sure there is always a high staff to patient care ratio in the ICU. By constantly training our people and maintaining our equipment we ensure that our ICU care is second to none. Critically ill patients can be referred to us for advanced life support and high dependency monitoring when those services are not available after-hours at your regular practice
We carry most of the usable medication in-house so you don’t have to wander around a different pharmacy for the required medication. Rarely do we need to write you a prescription for medication that is not available with us. In such a case, we will help you in finding the best suited pharmacy that carry that particular medication.
Our modern hospital has everything to ensure your pet is given the best possible care whether in emergency situations or simply preventive healthcare routines.
