In-Patient Wards

Our inpatient wards are air conditioned and equipped to the highest standards. There are separate cat, dog (small and large dog wards), exotic, isolation and intensive care wards, with species specific accommodation to reduce the stress for the animal whilst they are in hospital.

They are staffed 24 hours a day by dedicated qualified nurses who will have full knowledge of each patient’s condition and spend time with them to get to know each patient’s needs individually to provide gold standard care.

The kennels are stainless steel to ease cleaning and minimise infection risk and are kept spotless. Flooring is vinyl, again to maximise hygiene. They are all individually thermostatically controlled so the needs of each patient can be met. There are larger kennels for long stay patients and the dog wards have large walk in kennels that can comfortably accommodate even the largest of breeds.

The exotic ward has five thermostatically controlled vivariums with UV lighting and 3 separate parrot enclosures, each separately ventilated. The isolation ward is also divided into dog and cat areas and prevents the spread of infectious conditions. Padded Vet Bed bedding is supplied for each patient and mattresses for patients who need to remain laying down. We offer a variety of diets to meet your patient’s nutritional needs and all patients will have a nutritional assessment. Each ward has bathing facilities and there is a ward examination area for minor procedures, away from the other patients.

There is piped oxygen directly into the ward, which enables us to provide oxygen quickly to patients with breathing problems. There are three separate exercise runs for small and large dogs and cats within a central yard which have artificial grass areas for urination and defaecation.
