New Lameness Evaluation Service

New for 2021 we now have a new piece of kit that allows us to collect accurate data to evaluate lameness and weight bearing of our patients.

Utilising the Companion Stance Analyser in our clinic has taken our lameness evaluations to the next level.  By providing objective measurements, we will be able to see how a patient is shifting his or her weight in order to determine which limb, or limbs, are affected.  This data allows you to better communicate to the pet owner what the next step is going to be for the pet.

This can be used as a one off reading for data only purposes to communicate to the Vet, or integrated into the treatment plan to allow to adapt treatments as necessary and keep an eye on progress.

It can also be used for dogs not under our care, breeders, show dogs, working dogs etc to monitor longer term injuries to help manage the condition.

No Veterinary Referral is required for this service only. (cost applies)

     

Veterinary Acupuncture now on site

We are pleased to have the fantastic Jody Lam MA, Vet MB, MRCVS on board with us one day a week offering Acupuncture.

Veterinary acupuncture has evolved from the ancient art of placing needles into particular locations on the body in order to alleviate pain, improve recovery rates and increase resistance to disease. It has been practiced by the Chinese and other Eastern cultures for thousands of years and may be used to treat a wide variety of illnesses in both people and animals.

Pain is the most common indication for acupuncture, particularly chronic pain such as arthritis, but it can be very useful for muscular strains and spinal problems too.

This maybe a service offered by your own vet, but if not give Jody a call or a message. She is currently working from Operation K9 one day a week.

Dog Car Ramp

The concussion to the joints and surrounding tissue is massive when a dog jumps into, and more so out, of a car boot.
It is good practice to use a ramp for all medium to large dogs from an early age to prevent this unnecessary repetitive wear.
**A must for dogs that already have joint disease.**
Some training is required to help them to use it but we are here to help and give advice.
This particular ramp is the one we choose as it is lightweight, strong and grippy. Can also be used for steps into the garden etc.
