Our Services


These are by appointment with a Veterinary Surgeon or Veterinary Nurse. Appointments can be made by phone, at the reception desk or online by following the link on the home page. Due priority is given to urgent cases. We ask owners to keep dogs on a collar and lead and cats in a secure basket at all times in the waiting room. Nervous or fractious pets may be kept outside or in the car until ready to be seen. Alternatively it may be possible to find a quiet area within the practice for you to wait.

Surgical And Investigative Procedures

Our practice is equipped with modern facilities to provide comprehensive diagnosis and treatments. We have Digital X-ray, Doppler ultrasound, ECG, blood pressure monitors, endoscopes, a video arthroscope and laboratory equipment to run comprehensive in house bloods. Our operating theatres contain modern anaesthetic and monitoring equipment. At the Glusburn surgery we have invested in a dedicated digital dental xray machine for improved imaging. We can also perform complex orthopaedic surgery:

  • Tibial tuberosity advancement for cruciate rupture repair
  • Hemi-laminectomy for decompression of spinal disc prolapse
  • Tibial crest transplant and trochlea groove deepening for repair of a luxating patella
  • External and internal fixation of limb fractures

We are also able to perform radiography for the BVA Hip and Elbow scheme using digital techniques. Click the link here to find out more.

We do require your consent in writing for any procedures to be carried out on pets admitted to our wards.

Home Visits

In most cases the best facilities for examination and treatment of animals is at our practice premises. However home visits are appropriate in certain circumstances and may be requested. We will try to arrange a mutually convenient time during normal working hours.

Nurse Clinics

The practice staff includes a number of qualified Veterinary Nurses as well as trainees. Much of the preventative care is in their hands and you will find them friendly and willing to help. They carry out a variety of minor procedures such as micro-chipping, nail clipping and suture removal as well as providing advice on feeding, dental care, flea and worming treatment and weight control. The nurses also offer laser therapy for rehabilitation after orthopaedic operations or for treatment of musculoskeletal problems eg arthritis.
