Surgery at The Oak Vets

We have the facilities to manage almost all types of surgery in-house.  Types of surgery regularly undertaken include:

  • Skin surgery including mass removals, reconstructions, skin flaps, anal gland removal
  • Abdominal surgery including reproductive, gastrointestinal, bladder, liver
  • ENT surgery including laryngeal paralysis, brachycephalic obstruction, ear canal ablations, thyroid gland removal
  • Orthopaedics including fracture repair, arthrodesis, cruciate ligament (including TTA)

Our RCVS Surgery Certificate holder is able to perform many of the non-routine surgeries at our Haverfordwest surgery, whilst all members of the team perform our routine surgery.  Where a surgery cannot be performed in-house (spinal surgery for example) prompt referral to an appropriate specialist can be arranged.

Our general anaesthetics are all monitored continuously by a qualified veterinary nurse.  More complicated anaesthetics can be arranged, with our RCVS Diploma holder in Anaesthesia.
