Pride Veterinary Referrals has modern facilities and all the required instrumentation to allow the team to perform a wide range of orthopaedic procedures to suit all patients.

A significant number of the teams’ cases consist of lameness investigations and suitable treatment, whether conversation or surgical.

Orthopaedic patients at Pride Veterinary Referrals are treated by a dedicated team of clinicians and clinical support staff and can be sure of receiving the highest possible standards of care. Within the hospital, we have specialists in various disciplines ensuring the best possible decisions can be made for each case.

We prioritise animal welfare by offering 24-hour intensive care under continuous veterinary supervision. Our wards are also staffed day and night with vets and nurses, ensuring patients are nursed back to health as soon as possible.

Orthopaedic surgery is performed in dedicated theatres with highly trained staff. State-of-the-art facilities such as fluoroscopy, CT and MRI allow technical and complex procedures to be undertaken.
