Advanced services

At Vets for Pets, we have invested considerably in our team and kit to make a number of advanced services available to our clients. We also accept referrals from other practices.

Orthopaedics and fracture repair

Our veterinary team have undertaken advanced training to allow us to perform orthopaedic surgery in our practice. If your pet develops an abnormality involving their skeleton or joints, such as elbow dysplasia, a patella (kneecap) that gets stuck, or a torn cruciate ligament, an orthopaedic procedure may help them.

Problems involving the musculoskeletal, nervous systems and balance can be helped by physiotherapy. It can also aid in recovery from injury or surgery and with pain management. At Vets4Pets, we can arrange for physiotherapy to be part of your pet’s multi-modal treatment plan.

Laser therapy

Laser therapy is non-painful and involves directing infra-red radiation into inflamed or damaged tissues to accelerate the body’s natural healing process. It is often used for musculoskeletal issues such as arthritis, but the benefits of laser have been suggested for a range of conditions.

Veterinary Surgeon


Read Katie Lenton bio

After qualifying in 2001, Katie worked in mixed then small animal practice, quickly developing an interest in all aspects of small animal surgery.

She gained her Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2007 and became a RCVS recognised Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. She has many years experience in first opinion and referral practice.

‘Advanced Practitioner’ is an official recognition of a veterinary surgeon's particular knowledge and skills. The list of Advanced Practitioners provides a clear indication of those veterinary surgeons who the RCVS have accredited at postgraduate certificate level (Masters level 7) who have demonstrated knowledge and experience in a particular area of veterinary practice beyond their initial primary veterinary degree, and who have also confirmed that they are up to date in their field over and above the minimum requirements for continuing professional development.

It is important to understand that Advanced Practitioners are not RCVS/European Specialists and there will be cases where referral to a tertiary referral centre is more appropriate.
