Animals requiring Soft Tissue Surgery can be challenging to manage and often benefit from advanced facilities, techniques and the input of a multidisciplinary team. We work closely with our colleagues in anaesthesia, emergency and critical care, internal medicine and dermatology to ensure the best outcome for our patients. We also have an excellent team of nurses and interns to provide continuous care in our wards and ICU.
