Surgery

We are able to perform a wide range of surgical procedures not only on dogs and cats but also on rabbits and other small furries. As well as a veterinary team who are experienced in general surgery, we are also able to perform more complicated procedures on a daily basis.

Dr Mark Straw gained his Royal College Certificate in Small Animal Surgery in 2001 and is currently an RCVS Advanced Practitioner in Small Animal Surgery. Since this time he has been performing Orthopaedic surgery both on patients of Beechwood Veterinary Hospital and those referred from practices from around the region.

Examples of surgical procedures performed:-

  • Neutering: dog, cat and rabbit castrations and spays.
  • Wound management: from the stitch up for the small straightforward cut to complex skin grafting for the very severe wound.

  • Surgery of the liver, stomach or intestines – foreign body removal, bloat, tumour removal.
  • Orthopaedic surgery: fracture repair, tendon or ligament injuries, arthritis, growth problems
