Just like humans, pets can suffer from aches and pains. We can ease your pet’s discomfort with the help of the McTimony chiropractic technique.

Particularly suitable for the treatment of musculo-sceletal, neck and back pains, this treatment is respectful, ethical and readily accepted, even enjoyed, by most animals.

Balancing and aligning the musculo-sceletal system of an animal, the McTimony technique optimises your pet’s dynamic flexibility and enables top level function of its nervous system, thereby improving its general health, quality of life and comfort, as well as its performance.

Fairly simple to arrange, Pet Passports issued in the EU or the UK make it possible to take your beloved cat, dog or ferret with you while travelling within the EU and/ or from the EU/ UK to listed/ unlisted countries and back.

My Vet 24/7 can enable you to travel with your pet by arranging Pet Passports. Please note that the required process will take approximately three weeks. If travelling with multiple pets (more than five), additional certification attesting to your pets’ being ‘fit & healthy to travel’ will be required.

Healthy teeth are an essential part of your pets’ overall well-being. Featuring an air-turbine drive, digital radiography and ultrasonic scaling, our specialist dental suite ensures effective corrective and prophylactic dental treatment.

Similar to human dentists’ facilities, our high speed air drive dental machinery allows for high speed burning, cutting and drilling, and ensures dental treatments can be carried out very quickly. This, of course, is of utmost importance, especially for older animals, where the time they have to spend under anaesthetic has to be kept at a minimum.

Ultrasound examinations of your pet’s chest and abdomen, including colour imaging, and Doppler cardiac scanning carried out by our certified European specialist in advanced diagnostic scanning enables us to diagnose subtle disease processes and abnormalities.

This gives us the ability to diagnose your pet’s ailments early and without the need for procedures of a more invasive nature, thus keeping the trauma involved to a minimum. It also allows us to give your pet the treatment it requires quickly, making the treatment more effective and ensuring your pet returns to health sooner.

Routinely offering neutering of cats, dogs and rabbits, we advise free re-checks (at six months) to discuss the benefits/ disadvantages of neutering any individual pet at a pet’s first routine vaccination.

For male dogs, we also offer the option of non-surgical neutering, allowing for assessment of potential behavioural changes prior to selecting neutering by castration. Far less invasive than castration and virtually pain-free, non-surgical neutering leaves your dog’s testicles (and probably also his pride) in tact, leaving him sterile without disrupting his testes’ endocrine functions.

Our use of digital dental radiography enables us to take x-rays within a matter of seconds and with minimal use of radiation.

As a result, the animal is exposed to lower radiation levels for much less time than with conventional x-ray equipment/ techniques.

Being able to take radiographs this much faster also ensures the animal only spends a minimal amount of time under anaesthesia/ sedation.

The high quality images produced with digital radiography aid faster diagnosis and rapid treatment response by being almost instantly ready to read by our specialists. Recovery from ailments/ injuries is subsequently speeded up significantly.

 

 

Offered by our practice in Hillingdon, hydrotherapy for dogs has many benefits aiding speedy recovery. Reducing pain and swelling; relaxing, toning and strengthening muscles; increasing joint movement ranges; improving muscle recruitment/ patterning and more, hydrotherapy also prevents secondary complications caused by muscle contracture, limb disuse and/ or gait abnormalities.

Also assisting in slowing degenerative diseases’ effects, hydrotherapy improves the quality of life for older/ disabled dogs and has shown beneficial effects on animals with heart/ respiratory problems. Suitable applications include, among others, arthritis, elbow and hip dysplasia; neurological conditions, ligament/ tendon injuries and fractures.

Prevention is better than cure, and our routine consultations are geared to prevent pets developing conditions that may ultimately require potentially invasive treatments if not detected early.

Routine consultations consist of the provision of thorough clinical exams, including dental and weight checks, and administration of appropriate treatments/ medication as required. Carried out by prior appointment, routine consultations take little of your time, but will ensure a happy, healthy life for your pet.

His special interest in medicine/ surgery for racing/ retired racing dogs means Daniel Doherty knows that providing early diagnosis/ treatment of greyhound specific diseases and identifying injuries by thorough musculoskeletal examinations is critical for achieving the best form for your racing dog.

Using orthopaedic (tarsal) reconstruction techniques enabling racing dogs to return safely to racing/ enjoy pain-free retirement, we also offer regular corn treatments; dental treatments taking specific anaesthetic requirements of retired racing dogs into consideration, and hydrotherapy as part of your dogs’ rehabilitation. Further speeding their recovery, hydrotherapy also improves their stamina and performance.

Fully equipped to handle all kinds of routine, as well as specialised surgical procedures, our experienced veterinary professionals undertake surgery from cruciate ligament repairs to neutering; from thyroidectomys to orthopaedic fracture repairs, and anything in between at both of our clinics.

Using the latest in safe anaesthetic techniques, we ensure your pet’s trauma and exposure to the risks of anaesthesia is kept minimal , thereby enabling speedier recoveries.

Regular routine vaccinations protect your pets, including cats, dogs and rabbits, against potentially crippling, even fatal diseases. Carried out by experienced veterinary surgeons happy to answer any specific health questions owners may have, our routine vaccinations are done in conjunction with full health checks.

Available at competitive prices, routine vaccinations help to ensure your pets can have a long, healthy life free of pain and suffering.
