Two Fully Equipped Operating Theatre Suites
We have two sterile operating suites the are fully equipped with:
- Pulse Oximetry (monitors oxygen levels in the patient’s blood)

Ultrasound is a method of looking at the internal 'soft tissue' organs of the body.
At Stamford Veterinary Centre we carry out the following on a daily basis:
- Pregnancy Scanning
- Cardiac Scanning
- Abdominal Scanning
Digital X-ray enables us to produce images of superior quality. This enables us to make a quicker and more accurate diagnosis.
Our flexible endoscope enables us to exam your pets digestive/respiratory tract without the need for complex surgery.
We are also able to take tissue samples from these areas, allowing us to make a more detailed diagnosis.
An ECG report allows us to determine the electrical activity of a patient’s heart. They help us to detect irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias) and the size of the heart chambers.
Modern Dental Hygiene Facilities
Dental disease is one of the most common conditions we see at the practice and it is important to keep your pets oral health in tip top condition in order to prevent harmful bacteria spreading to their internal organs, such as the heart, liver and kidneys.
After we have cleaned your pet's teeth, our team of veterinary nurses step in to show you how to care for them at home and prevent tartar from building up again.
If you have never brushed your pet's teeth before, it is important to start very gradually and build up the process in order for it to be tolerated well. Our nurses have put together an easy 4 step guide on the best way to do this and will happily demonstrate and discuss this process with you.
