We can provide for all the healthcare needs of your pet at Purton Vets

Clinical Services

At Purton Vets, we are able to provide a complete range of surgical and medical procedures including dermatology, cardiology, medicine, diagnostic imaging, cytology, clinical pathology, soft tissue, orthopaedic and keyhole surgery. We have visiting specialists in ophthalmology and orthopaedics. We hospitalise patients with serious illness and monitor them day and night according to their individual needs. We put the patient first and will refer patients if required rather than "have a go" if we don't have the skills available in the practice. Our clinical services include: 

  • Free registration health assessments for new patients
  • Vet2Pet, our good value home visiting service
  • Full range of surgery and medicine services
  • High definition digital x-ray, ultrasound and endoscopy imaging
  • Out of hours emergency and critical care service
  • Hospitalisation in spacious, warm and quiet wards
  • Pet passport certificates and travel advice
  • Comprehensive blood testing laboratory on site
  • Cytology Service (same day microscope examination of lumps)
  • Pain management and arthritis assessments
  • Chicken Vet Accredited Practice

Preventative Healthcare

We offer 15 minute appointment slots as standard which is twice as long as the industry average. The extra time we offer is a reflection of our level of service and the need to offer your pet the best care possible when it's ill and needs diagnosis. We like to be thorough and have time to listen. Our preventative healthcare consists of:

  • Vet and Nurse consultations 7 days a week
  • Annual health assessment and vaccination
  • Dental health assessments and range of dental treatments
  • Microchip Identification (with built in thermometer)
  • Weight loss programs and nutritional advice
  • A range of quality pet products and pet food
  • Breeding advice and pregnancy testing
  • The right start for your puppy or kitten

Referral Services

We can provide you and your pet with access to a network of specialists if we don't provide a particular service in:

  • Laparoscopic (Keyhole) Surgery
  • Monthly Ophthalmology Referral Service (eye clinic)
  • Orthopaedic Surgery and Arthroscopy

Keyhole surgery results in less pain, faster recovery and is safer.  We are one of the few vets in the UK that can offer this specialist surgery for spays, liver biopsy, exploration of the abdomen, pancreatic and kidney biopsy, removal of retained testicles, gastropexy, removal of stones from the bladder, removal of foreign bodies from the intestine and intestinal biopsy.

The Ophthalmology service is run by Ida Gilbert BVSc CertVOphthal MRCVS. Ida has worked at Purton Vets for many years. Ida runs the eye clinic at our Purton Surgery on a Friday from 10am - 1pm. The clinic is run on a referral only basis.

On a case by case basis we offer specialist Orthopeadic Surgery and Arthroscopy provided by Andrew Scrimgeour BVSc BPhil(Vet) MANZSVSc(Surgery) MRCVS. Andrew has more than 20 years experience and his experience means we have good clinical outcomes can provide local case follow-up without the need for your pet to travel.
