Taking the stress out of the Waiting Room - our waiting room designed so that dogs and cats are not stressed by having to wait next to each other. Our Edison Park Clinic & Hospital also has a Quiet Room where very stressed pets can wait alone.

In house pharmacy - we have a large well stocked pharmacy where drugs are stored. Our specially designed shelving ensures strict stock rotation. There are refrigerators for those drugs needing to be stored below room temperature. Some regularly used drugs and vaccines are stored in the consult ion rooms but each consultation room backs on the the pharmacy so that vets have access to a wider range of drugs and can fill prescriptions quickly and easily. The computer can access or centralised patient records and enables repeat prescriptions to be filled.
A well stocked pharmacy means that drugs are readily at hand.

Weigh your pet while you are waiting It is very useful to know the weight of your pet. It is however not always easy to do. We have built in walk on scales in our waiting room so that you can find the weight of your pet without the hassle of struggling with scales at home. You are welcome to visit the surgery to weigh your pets without an appointment. It is of course free of charge.
Specialist equipment ensures high quality care We use high tech equipment in both our cat and dog wards. The equipment on the front of these cages is used to regulate the rate at which intravenous fluids (drips) are given. Most of our equipment is portable so that it can be switched between wards - with the exception of our Isolation Ward.

Quiet and stress free Cat Ward Our cat ward is quiet and can house a number of cats comfortably and securely in a stress free environment. Plug in diffusers are used that diffuse into the atmosphere helping to prevent anxiety. The ward is away from the dog ward and cages are large enough to move around comfortably and use a litter tray. Some cats may be kept in slightly smaller cages to ensure rest where necessary.
Spacious kennels in the Dog Ward 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.
Dogs are kept in hygienic but comfortable kennels before and after operations and also for in patient treatment. Nurses and Animal Nursing Auxiliaries have easy access for frequent TLC as well a treatments.
Kennels have easy access for nursing 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.
Kennels tailored for individual needs 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.
