Gold Standard Neutering Service

what we offer.....

Pain Relief

Our first priority is to prevent pain, therefore we use a combination of pain medication during surgery including Methadone, anti-inflammatories, paracetamol for dogs, and ketamine for cats. There is no compromise here and all animals are provided with 4 days’ pain relief.  For peace of mind this is included in the cost.

Wound care

We close the wound with internal sutures so there are no stitches on the outside to interfere with. We will cover spay wounds to protect them after surgery and provide an Elizabethan collar to prevent your pet disturbing the wound. For peace of mind this is included in the cost. 

Surgical Standards

Our vets and nurses wear dedicated surgical attire and sterile gloves. We only use new, single use, disposable drapes for each patient and sterile suture material. We clip a large area of fur from under the abdomen and prepare the site for surgery with Chrlor-Prep in the same manner as human hospitals. This is why we do not need to use antibiotics during surgery.

Post op:

Our nurses will recheck your pet two to four days after surgery and at ten days to make sure there are no problems post surgery. If there is any concern the vet will be notified. As part of our service this is included in the procedure cost.
