We see a real mix of cases here, from tiny puppies to elderly Great Danes, parrots and rabbits, we are proud to be able to treat most of these cases in-house whether surgical or medical, however, we also have a huge network of specialist referrals should we need to refer the case. Being part of IVC Evidensia means we can liaise closely with other practices also in the network, which can be really useful.
