ABOUT THE SURGERY
We took over the clinic in April 2009 and have enjoyed getting to know many of the previously registered clients and meeting new ones who have joined since we took over.
The clinic has been present for over 20 years and has been updated to provide full diagnostic and surgical facilities, which include a surgical theatre, x-ray facilities and dental ultrasonic scaler.
We are currently enrolled on the RCVS practice standards scheme and have acheived Tier Two Status.
Our goal is to provide a gold standard of treatment at all times. To do this we often have to stay one step ahead of many other veterinary practices even in our routine procedures. That means that your cat, dog or rabbit gets treated to the best possible care – before, during and after their visit.
If your pet needs to go undergo a procedure within the clinic you can be assured that your pet will receive appropriate pain relief in combination with modern anaesthetic agents. The operation will be performed in a dedicated theatre, by a surgeon wearing a mask, a hat, a sterile gown and gloves. A trained Veterinary Nurse will continuously monitor the patient throughout the procedure.
When necessary we are able to refer patients to our Witham hospital where our diagnostic and surgical facilities are more extensive. Spring Lodge’s Witham Hospital is the only practice in Mid-Essex that has achieved the prestigious ‘RCVS Veterinary Hospital’ accreditation from the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons for which we are independently inspected every four years.
Patients requiring overnight hospitalisation are transferred to our hospital where on-site nursing and veterinary care is administered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our ‘out of hours’ care is provided by Vets Now Ltd.
They are an independent company who provide the equivalent of a pet A&E department for local practices during the night and weekends.
We are lucky, as this service is run from our Witham Hospital so your animal can receive care 24 hours a day once it has been admitted to our Hospital.
