Hospitalisation for pets at Daventry Vets
Leaving your pet at the clinic can be daunting for owners so we’ve put together an information page to help you understand what your pet will experience whilst in our care.
If your pet is staying with us for a short while, you can have peace of mind that we keep them as comfortable as possible. Our entire building is air conditioned to help your pet remain comfortable during their stay with us. Whilst most owners will only ever see our consult rooms and waiting area – behind the scenes we have an operating theatre where all of our surgeries take place. We also have a preparation room to prepare your pet for their surgical procedure they need. This includes taking any x-rays, ultrasound scans and running any laboratory tests the vet may request.
An isolation ward is available to those pets who may need a quiet recovery, or for those who are potentially infectious. Our pharmacy is fully stocked with the most common medications your pet will need and if they do require a different type of medication, our fantastic relationship with our suppliers helps to ensure they receive it promptly.
Our kennels all have special beds made with the same padding as human hospital beds. Our cat kennels have places for cats to “hide” – this is all part of our feline friendly practice. Learn more about how Daventry Vets is a Cat Friendly Clinic.
Veterinary nurses & hospitalisation
Our veterinary nurses will monitor your pet throughout their stay and keep you updated on their condition. Our veterinary nurses are also the ones who keep our hospitalisation facilities hygienically clean and will ensure that our vets have the equipment and sterilised instruments they need to be able to operate on your pet.
Most pets go home the same day after surgery. If your pet needs ongoing hospitalisation and monitoring then we may refer them to our emergency care providers, Vets Now.
