The investigation and treatment of a wide range of orthopaedic conditions in both dogs and cats.


We’re proud to be a centre of excellence in Orthopaedic care for dogs and cats. Our highly trained surgeons investigate and treat a wide range of Orthopaedic conditions in both cats and dogs on a daily basis. Cases typically referred to us include all forms of lameness, trauma fracture repair (mostly road traffic accidents) and the correction of limb deformities.

If you have been referred to us with an Orthopaedic issue you’ll be glad to know you’re in safe hands. Our team knows that an accurate diagnosis is crucial to ensuring the correct advice and treatment is given. That’s why we always give a thorough 45-minute consultation. On-site access to conventional x-rays, ultrasound, MRI, electromyography, arthroscopy, as well as easy access to CT and bone scanning, also ensure we provide an exceptional service for every patient.

Before we begin any treatment our Orthopaedic surgeons will advise you on your pet’s condition, the causes, the options for treatment, the prognosis and the costs that may be incurred along the way.

Please be aware our Orthopaedic team are happy to discuss difficult cases with professional colleagues, but cannot discuss specific cases with pet owners without a formal referral from their primary veterinary surgeon.
