Briar Dawn Vets opened in October 2004 on the site of a previous veterinary surgery. Since then we’ve invested heavily in modernising the practice and equipment. As a result we have digital X-ray facilities and a powerful high resolution ultrasound machine. In 2016 we added dental X-ray with digital processing and upgraded our extensive range of laboratory equipment. We continue to invest on an ongoing basis. Recent purchases of advanced ophthalmic equipment and a flexible endoscope mean we can offer additional services. Furthermore, top of the range infusion pumps help to improve in-patient care.
From the open, friendly reception area to the modern, well equipped operating theatre we have designed the practice for the comfort and well-being of our patients and their owners. We are dedicated to companion animals and our experienced vets have particular interests in surgery, internal medicine, dentistry, skin disease, clinical pathology and rabbit health and husbandry.
Our modern facilities and well trained staff mean that most diagnostic testing and surgical procedures can be done on-site. This means you will not have to wait days or weeks for test results as many can be reported on the same day. Fast diagnosis helps us to ensure that appropriate and effective treatment can be provided with minimal delay.
We take care to ensure that stress is minimised for you and your pets. Consequently, we’ve built a separate kennels and cattery. In addition, the reception area features a quiet area for cats and rabbits. Calming pheromones are used here and in the consulting rooms. Furthermore, we aim to keep waiting times to a minimum. We encourage dog owners to pop in regularly so we can give their pets a fuss and a treat. Additionally, nurse led puppy and kitten clinics help the youngsters learn that the practice is not a scary place. As a result, many of our patients come to associate a trip to the vets with a pleasant rather than stressful or frightening experience.
Our mission is to offer a gold standard of care to pets, with the accent as much on prevention as cure. We are passionate about great quality veterinary service and will offer a full range of options to suit all expectations and budgets. To this end we will explain different investigation possibilities, treatment options and their outcomes, and the costs as we go along. This gives you choices in the treatment of your pet.
