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.
