Comprising of a large preparation area and two sterile surgical theatres. All theatres have modern anaesthetic machines, operating tables and lighting facilities.


Orthopaedic Theatre


This is fully epuipped with the latest orthopaedic equipment and instrumentation. This theatre is mainly used for orthopaedic procedures such as fracture repairs, tibial tuberosity advancement and surgery for other musculoskeletal problems.


Main Theatre


This theatre is used for elective routine surgery such as neutering, emergency surgery, gastrointestinal surgery and other soft tissue operations.  It is also equipped with an operating microscope for opthalmic procedures.


Fluroscopy Suite


This is mainly used for post operative radiographs but can be used for video radiographs.


There is a seperate kennel ward on the first floor for recovering surgical patients. The kennels have their own airconditioning and heating facilities to ensure that the patients recover as warm and as comfortably as possible. The kennels are regularly monitored until the patients are fully recovered from their anaesthetics and can be discharged.


We also carry out routine procedures such neutering, lump removals and other minor procedures at our other branch in Whickham.


We have an experienced team of vets, nurses and support staff that continuously strive to provide the highest level of veterinary care after all procedures and during your pets stay with us in the hospital.
