Surgical Equipment

At Hawthorne Lodge we believe constant re-investment in equipment is essential to provide the best possible patient care.

Our up-to-date facilities enable us to perform a range of surgical procedures, from routine neuterings to complex fracture repairs and abdominal surgery. We also have the facilities to carry out keyhole surgery

We use the latest anaesthetic drugs and equipment. Multi-parameter anaesthetic monitoring machines, more commonly found in human hospitals, ensure maximum anaesthetic safety – while a “forced air” warming system keeps our patients snuggly warm during their operations, and speeds recovery from anaesthesia.

Our vets regularly attend refresher courses to ensure they are up to date with the latest surgical techniques.

For some procedures, we may suggest referral to a recognised specialist if we feel their extra skill and experience will benefit your pet.
