FAQ's

Where possible, we prefer to keep your pets awake. We have found this doesn't impact on the information we can obtain from the x-ray - and it greatly reduces the cost to you. We may not even require an x-ray for diagnoses, as sometimes we can find the break or fracture through palpation alone.
This varies from animal to animal, and depends on the break or fracture that they are suffering from. Generally, it will take between two and four weeks for your pet to resume normal activities following a fracture, and four to six weeks following MLP or ACL surgery.
This is dependant on the type of treatment they require and the extent of their injury. However, you'll be happy to learn that we don't charge for any overnight stays - greatly reducing the cost to you!
