New - MRI scanning and hospital expansion

Tuesday, June 07, 2016

If you've been to our Whitchurch hospital recently, you may have noticed building work in progress as we continue to invest in new facilities to provide the latest treatments and care for your pets.

To increase the clinical space, all admin and support staff have moved to an off-site office premises literally down the road. This gives us the capacity to add:

  • a new state of the art operating theatre
  • an exotics centre with bespoke facilities for reptiles and birds
  • a new dental suite (with dental x-ray)
  • a new high-tech laboratory for quick and accurate diagnosis
  • additional comfortable kennelling for dogs
  • a cosy bespoke feline specialist-designed cattery

On-site MRI scanning

Highcroft Referrals also sees expansion with an exciting new weekly on-site MRI scanning service, starting on 22nd June. MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) provides cross-sectional, detailed images of almost any part of the body. MRI is ideal for examining soft tissue in ligament, tendon and joint injuries, spinal cord injuries and brain tumours.

No need to go anywhere else

We now have specialist vets and referral services to cover everything from the most complex orthopaedic and cardiac surgery to highly sophisticated diagnostics (CT and MRI scanning, ultrasound, endoscopy, and high-tech laboratory). Highcroft's 24-hour hospital, and referral centre, is available to all Highcroft clients, regardless of which branch your pet is registered with. So if your pet needs specialist care, there's no need to go anywhere else!
