Visting Veterinary Consultants
We are proud to have quality facilities at Ripley Vet, including a full radiology suite, double sterile theatre, dental and wet suite. Staff here are all highly trained, but if there’s an area we cannot deal with specifically ourselves, we have options to bring specialists in.
We have a travelling cardiologist that comes in to visit us, a specialist surgeon for complex cases and cases we require assistance with, a veterinarian that specialises in sonography, and also the option to send you to specialists down at the emergency centre 20-30 minutes away that we have a good relationship with for CTs, MRIs, emergency overnight care and other services we cannot provide internally. We have you covered, whether we do it here or if we assist with specialist care.
