Surgical care at Alpha Vets

Our Vets use the safest anaesthetic protocols designed specifically for each species, state-of-the-art anaesthetic monitoring machines, as well as our highly skilled anaesthetists to make sure your pet is as comfortable as they can be whilst in surgery. Your pet’s vital signs and comfort will be watched closely by our fully qualified Nurses throughout their procedure, and we have an extensive range of medication on-site should any be needed.

For pet’s needing more intensive care, we have a veterinary ICU on-site in Teddington. We also have our own 24-hour emergency & critical care facility just a few miles away in East Molesey, for patients needing overnight close-monitoring and care.

Our on-site facilities include:

General anaesthetics

Some of our clients have concerns about the safety of general anaesthesia, which is completely understandable. For our standard anaesthetic agent we use propofol, which is generally employed in human surgery, as well as isoflurane, a modern, safe anaesthetic gas. When under general anaesthetic, your pet’s wellbeing is of course our top priority.

A fully qualified Anaesthetist oversees the anaesthetic at all times, and we use a Burtons full-function multi-parameter electronic monitor: this monitors all of the patient’s physiological functions, from their core body temperature, breathing rate and blood pressure, to oxygen saturation and carbon dioxide concentration of the blood and ECG.

Is your pet insured?

Surgery can be a lifesaver for pets so we strongly recommend taking out pet insurance to remove the financial stress of unexpected treatment. When the unimaginable happens, pet insurance can help you get your pet the treatment they need, rather than what is affordable at the time. Learn more about pet insurance.
