If your pet requires a procedure, such as surgery, X-ray or ultrasound, this will be performed by a procedure vet and nurse. Some procedures, such as orthopaedic surgery and ultrasound are performed by specific vets who have the expertise required for that procedure. If there are a large number of cases there can sometimes be delays in the timing of your pet’s procedure. Your pet will be assessed throughout its stay. Please note that urgent cases are always treated first.
