While we have unusually large kennels for the comfort our larger or more active patients, we also have a range of other sizes of kennels. Some dogs need to feel snug and secure in a smaller kennel or they may need to be restricted either for treatment or rested after injury or surgery. Our range of sizes and equipment used within our kennels enables us to take each patients individual requirements into account. A yellow stretcher can be seen in this photograph which is used to help move larger patients who are unable to walk.
Our kennels are designed for the comfort of our patients. Ease of access is important so that nurses can clean, treat and administer the all important TLC to patients. Dogs and cats are kept in separate wards. Each kennel will be adapted to suit a patients individual needs. Bedding, temperature regulation, stress relief, fluid maintenance and other specialist treatment requirements are all taken into account and catered for.
We have unusually large kennels for dogs that visit us for surgery or have to be admitted for treatment or nursing. Dogs are kept separate from cats and each have a secure comforable kennel with specialist veterinary bedding. Where appropriate, patients are taken out regularly to our secure exercise area for toileting. Nurses have easy access to each kennel for cleaning,treatment, nursing and TLC.
