As a first opinion practice, we perform a wide rage of general surgeries for clients' pets.
Typically, your pet will be booked in for a surgical procedure after discussion with one of our vets during a clinical consultation. If your pet is undergoing a surgical procedure they will require sedation or general anaesthetic (which method depends on a variety of factors).
To learn more about how you can help safely prepare your pet for a surgical procedure read our advice here: Prepare your pet for their procedure.
Your pet may develop symptoms over the course of their life that may require further investigation. One of the investigative techniques we use is a surgical biopsy.
A surgical biopsy involves surgically removing a sample(s) of tissue from your pet. The sample is then sent to a referral laboratory for further specialist investigation.
Once we receive the report back from the laboratory we will contact you about the results to discuss.
