OUR THEATRE

 

Our surgeries are carried out in our new state of the art facility which comprises a large prep room and two theatres.  Surgeries are done Monday to Friday after our Consults Clinic. 


Our daily surgery list would usually range from routine neutering of cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets and guinea pigs.   There would also be dental work cases on the list which would include x-rays, descaling, polishing and where necessary extractions.


We also carry out cruciate repair surgery.


Not all surgeries are planned and on occasions emergencies present themselves, an example being  Cesarean Sections.

MICROSCOPE

  • Every day we deal with a variety of animals with wide ranging problems.  We use a variety of tools to aid our diagnosis and identification of these conditions.  Often our first stop is the use of the microscope, which we use to identify parasites, infections and abnormalities in your pet's blood. The microscope is one of our most important tools.

  • Here at O'Scanaill Veterinary we are dedicated to providing the best care we possibly can for your pets.  We utilise, on a daily basis, the most modern and up to date technology to help diagnose and treat the furry members of your family.

  • We have been fortunate to have a digital x-ray machine at our disposal for more than a decade, allowing us to obtain superior image quality of your pet compared to the older method. Digital radiography has become a vital component in veterinary medicine.  We use it to diagnose a variety of illnesses and ailments from broken bones, bladder stones, and on one partiular occasion, a swallowed rubber duck!

We also have a complete in-house laboratory consisting of blood machines, microscope, and urine testing equipment.  This means that should your pet ever require a blood test we have a biochemistry and haematology machine available to allow quick and accurate results. If your pet requires more specialised tests, we have access to external accredited labs to run these samples for us.

Ultrasonography

  • Alongside x-rays, we use ultrasonography to help identify what is happening inside the body.  It is a non invasive way at looking to see what is going on in various organs, and generally does not require sedation.  We use ultrasonography for everything from dogs with heart disease, to looking for stones in the bladder, to confirming an expectant mother is indeed expecting.
