NEW DIGITAL X-RAY EQUIPMENT
We now have a brand new x-ray machine with digital processor . This will be , like the rest of the business , totally mobile . We have a large van in which we can radiograph your pet The resulting radiograph will appear within seconds on the computer screen. Most results can be given to you straightaway but we have the facility to email the pictures to an expert for a second opinion if considered necessary
We are now running very susccessful x-ray days where you can bring along your dog for hip and elbow radiographs to be taken . These digital images will then be sent for scoring under the KC/BVA scheme .
The radiographs are taken in our purpose built unit , with your dog under sedation . You may wait nearby while this is happening and once finished we reverse the sedation and your dog is on his feet again . Very quick and stress free all round. We can let you see the x-ray pictures straightaway too.
Our next day is MARCH 14th at BASC, Dulford , nr Cullompton. We will also be running an eye clinic with Prof. Pete Bedford that day
If you would like an appointment please call us.
Other radiographs and minor procedures can also be done on these days by prior arrangement.
As of the 6th April 2016, ALL dogs must be microchipped and registered on a government compliant microchip database. After that date, all puppies must be microchipped by the time that they are eight weeks old.
See this site for more information - www.petlog.org.uk/breeders/compulsory-microchipping-faqs/
Please give us a call to book an appointment if you require your dog to be microchipped.
Cost is £15 individually or we can offer a discounted rate for a group booking!

The final visit .
We often say this is the final gift that you can give your pet . The chance to drift off to sleep in the comfortable surroundings of his own home with the family members he loves and trusts. We will endeavour to accommodate your every wishes for this most important time . We encourage you to plan in advance for this moment and decide if you would like it to be indoors, outdoors , with music, candles etc or alternatively if you would rather not be present we understand this decision and will treat you pet with the utmost care and expertise .
The euthanasia ( awful word) process can involve a painless sedation injection that allows your pet to gently drift into a deep sleep ; then after ten minutes or so we can administer the final intravenous injection of an overdose of barbiturate anaesthetic . If you would prefer the final injection without the sedation this is also possible and sometimes less stressful as the whole process is quicker . As with all our hospice care procedures we will always accommodate all your wishes wherever possible .
