Our Spacious Facilities
Spacious reception area
We have a large, light and airy reception area which ensures you can speak to one of our reception team in comfort.
Our Walter Leigh Way Practice is the big sister to our Twist Lane site. We have designed the practice to be easily accessible, light, comfortable and comforting.
Both of our practices offer large, easily accessible free car parking for our clients.
Our Twist Lane practice also has a pay and display car park next door should you prefer
Dog Waiting area
This practice has a large dog waiting area with lots of comfy seating available.
Cat and Rabbit Waiting Area
We know just how important it is to reduce stress during visits to our practice – especially for our smaller patients, and so we have a lovely separate waiting area for our cats and rabbits away from the sight and sound of any dogs.
Stands are provided for baskets which ensures that our feline patients do not have to wait on the floor, and this helps to reduce any stress they may experience in line with ISFM guidelines.
Children’s play area
As parents Lloyd and I know that sometimes you need somewhere to occupy your children! So we have provided a small play area to help keep them busy whilst at the practice.
Dedicated Cat Consulting Rooms
Our cat and rabbit waiting area leads straight into 2 cat consulting rooms ensuring your smaller pets have as pleasant a visit as possible.
Dedicated Dog Consulting Rooms
We have 4 consulting rooms in which we can see our canine patients in comfort.
We have a lovely quiet room at our Walter Leigh Way site, designed to be a relaxing, quiet space which is available for those wishing to visit their pets should they need to stay with us overnight.
We have dedicated this room to Sushi – a much loved and never forgotten patient who is sadly no longer with us.
We have 3 sterile theatres within our WLW practice along with a large treatment and preparation area. This allows us to provide excellent surgical facilities for routine and non-routine (complex) surgical cases and orthopaedics.
Our designated dental area with specialist dental equipment allows us to perform variety of treatments for peridontal disease and preventative treatments. The vast majority of dental procedures require animals to be anaesthetised, and our dental suite allows this.
We are equipped to perform dental procedures on dogs, cats and rabbits.
We are proud to boast a fantastic digital xray machine which allows us to take images of your pets and obtain the results rapidly should the need arise.
Species Specific Kennel Rooms
Should your pet need to stay with us for the day or even overnight you can rest assured that their comfort is our priority along with their medical needs.
We have dedicated dog, cat and rabbit/small animal kennels which means that different species are kept away from the sight, sound and smell of other species. This helps reduce stress levels in our inpatients.
We use species specific pheromones in our dog and cat wards to further help reduce stress – and lots of cuddles of course!
Sometimes our patients are suffering from contagious conditions and we are able to care for them in our isolation area, thereby protecting them and our other patients as much as possible.
We have a laboratory area giving us the ability to perform blood tests on-site – results can be available in as little as 15 minutes. We also have a microscope which plays a critical part in dermatological and many other examinations, along with other smaller more specialised pieces of equipment which allow us to perform a wide range of tests, including urine tests, skin tests etc on-site.
For some, more specialised, tests it may be necessary to send samples to a dedicated animal laboratory. With our modern in-house laboratory, we can obtain results the very same day. This is very important especially when treating our critical and/or overnight patients.
High Dependancy Ward/ICU Ward
We offer not just a 24 hour out of hours service, but also a high dependancy/ICU ward for critically ill patients or very high dependancy patients.
