KEYHOLE SURGERY

Keyhole surgery is very common in human medicine, as we know it is less painful, quicker and has fewer risks than traditional open surgery.

Tristan enjoys performing keyhole surgery, and has undertaken further specialist training.

Price of a keyhole spay depends on your dog's weight, so please call us, and we can advise you. 

This price also includes a pre-operative consult, intravenous fluids during the procedure, painkillers and post-operative care (providing post-op instructions are followed)

Dr Tristan: "Keyhole surgery is at the cutting edge of veterinary care, and we are proud to be able to offer it. It's fantastic to see how quickly our patients recover afterwards!" 
 

SPECIALISTS

Our visiting Specialist Surgeons can perform orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery that you might otherwise have to be referred for.

Our modern and well equipped practice, has everything our visiting surgeons need to perform procedures at Chertsey Vets, so you don't have to drive to a referral centre far away.

If your pet needs an orthopaedic or surgery consultation, or to book in for a surgery (such as a cruciate or fracture repair, or a lump removal), then please call us to arrange

ACUPUNCTURE

We provide acupuncture treatments for our patients here at Chertsey and at our Woodham Lane clinic, meaning that you don't need to travel elsewhere. 

Acupuncture can be very effective in conditions such as arthritis.

 

CARDIOLOGY

Our visiting cardiologist, provides in-house investigations and treatment for new patients, and care for our patients with existing heart disease.

 

Heart disease can be detected at a very early stage now, and so effective treatments started much sooner.

Chertsey Vets offer all routine UK vaccinations, including the kennel cough vaccine.

We can administer vaccinations such as rabies and leishmania needed for travel. We can also arrange your pet passport or export documentation.

If you are a dog or cat breeder, talk to us about the vaccination schedule that will suit you. If you have a large litter, we can arrange discounts and home visit if required.

We also offer Titre Testing, to check your pet's antibody levels; this can help determine which vaccinations are necessary.

Call us if you would like to discuss titre testing in more detail.

Rabbits should be protected against myxomatosis and VHD.

 

PASSPORTS

Travelling with your pet can be a smooth journey, if you contact us as soon as you know your date of travel.

We can arrange your pet passport and export documentation, depending on where you are travelling to. 

Different countries have different travel requirements, which can sometimes involve quite a bit of paperwork and time delays for blood tests. so please leave plenty of time before your date of travel to come and discuss it with us.

NURSE CLINICS

Chertsey Vets qualified nurses run daily clinics for:

  • New Puppies/Kittens

  • Diabetes

  • Weight Management

  • Heart Disease

  • Kidney Disease

  • Arthritis

We encourage patients with any chronic condition, to have regular check-ups by our nurses, so that we can manage the condition in the best possible way. 

These clinics are free of charge to pets who are members of our Healthy Pet Club.

 

MICROCHIPPING

We recommend that all dogs and cats are microchipped.

It is a very quick and easy procedure, that ensures that should your pet slip its lead and get lost, your contact details are linked to your pet, and the chance of you being reunited is much greater.

If you are unsure if your pet is microchipped, or want to check your details, but don't know your chip number, the vets and nurses at Chertsey Vets can check your pets microchip free of charge.

 

DENTAL CARE

With our modern dental equipment, we can carry out routine scaling and polishing, to keep your pets teeth in great condition.

We can also perform dental surgery, should any teeth become diseased or damaged.

Chertsey Vets vets and nurses are very experienced in dentistry, and preventative dental care. 

Caring for your pets' teeth at home can help keep them in great condition.

We do not advise "anaesthesia-free dentals" offered by non-veterinary persons. These are dangerous, and breach the Animal Welfare Act.
