We also have occasional soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeons visit the practice to help us with some intricate soft tissue surgical procedures and complex fracture repairs.

Trevor’s wife Fiona (also a vet, working at Edinburgh Vet School) has a special interest and further qualifications in anaesthesia and may be involved in administering and monitoring anaesthetics in high risk cases.

Referrals

If your pet has a serious illness or injury that we feel we do not have the expertise or facilities to investigate or treat fully, we may recommend referral to either Edinburgh Vet School or Glasgow Vet School, where specialists with state-of-the-art equipment and facilities will be able to help.

Referral can involve substantial costs depending on the nature of the condition.  Pet insurance is strongly recommended to all clients in case of this eventuality.

If you decide to take up the offer of referral, we will telephone for an appointment, and send details of all clinical findings and treatment so far.  After a consultation at the Vet School, you will be given options for investigation and treatment together with an estimate for the likely costs involved.  Should you decide to go ahead with this, your pet may be admitted immediately, or you may be asked to make a further appointment for admission.

We will receive updates on your pets’ progress regularly, and will often be able to provide follow-up care once your pet returns home.
