Q. Will my pet be anaesthetised when you take an x-ray?
No! where possible, we prefer to keep your furry friend awake. This doesn’t impact on the quality of the information we receive from the x-ray, but it does greatly reduce the cost to you! In some cases, we don’t even require an x-ray for to make a diagnosis – we may be able to find the fracture or break through palpation alone.
Q. How long until my pet is back on their feet?
This will vary from pet to pet and is dependent on the fracture or break that they are suffering from. In general, it takes between two and four weeks to recover from a fracture, and four to six weeks following MLP or ACL surgery.
Q. Does my pet have to stay at the hospital overnight?
This will depend on the treatment they are receiving and the extent of their injury – but you’ll be happy to learn that we don’t charge any extra for overnight stays, which greatly reduces the cost to you!
