ABOUT THE SURGERY
Ingatestone Veterinary Centre is a purpose built barn conversion opened in 2008 with experienced staff, good facilities and services that include:
- Purpose built operating theatre and preparation room.
- Specially designated dog, cat and small mammal wards.
- Two Consulting Rooms.
- Acupuncture Clinics.
- Nursing Clinics – providing help and advice on preventative health care.
- Easy Parking.
- Friendly, personal service tailored to your pet’s individual requirements.
When necessary we are able to refer patients to our Witham hospital where our diagnostic and surgical facilities are more extensive. Spring Lodges 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.
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.
