Our surgical nursing team consists of Claire Dennis, Kathryn Sowray & Hannah Chapman.

We perform a wide range of orthopaedic procedures including but not limited to the following:-

  • Cruciate ligament injury (repair by TTA)           TTA 2TTA 1
  • Fracture repair
  • Arthrodesis
  • Medial Patellar Luxation correction
  • Lateral humeral condylar fracture
  • Coxo-Femoral Luxation (dislocation of the hip joint)

We believe in sensible fixed pricing for many of these more complicated procedures enabling owners to budget for their pets care. All of the prices below include initial consultation, radiographs, blood work, surgical proceedure, associated medications, hospitalisation, two post-operative checks, initial follow-up radiographs at 4 – 6 weeks if indicated and VAT.
