As pet owners we all worry about leaving our sick pet in hospital. Here at Northwest Surgeons we aim to treat your pet as if he or she were our own. We all want the best possible care for our pets and we are well positioned to deliver this.
To put your mind at rest, let’s follow one of our recent cases, Louis, through the hospital from the initial consultation through to his discharge home.
Louis is a 9 year old cat owned by Matt, our anaesthetist. Louis was suffering from diarrhoea, which failed to respond to the usual first line treatments. After some frustrating attempts to help Louis, Matt sought the advice of our medicine team who are used to dealing with cat gastrointestinal problems.
Every case at Northwest Surgeons receives an initial consultation with a specialist most suited to the animal’s condition. In Louis’ case this was with Dr Rebecca Littler, an RCVS specialist in internal medicine. Louis was admitted to the hospital for diagnostic tests.
