If your pet becomes unwell, they may require hospitalisation. Here at Werrington Vets, we have several ward areas – dog ward, cat ward and an isolation ward.
Our dog ward has kennels of different sizes, including five walk-in kennels for our largest patients.
Cat ward is designed to minimise stress for our feline patients. It is located away from the dogs, has no line of sight between each cat and Pet Remedy® pheromones are in constant use to help them relax. We have larger kennel sizes, for our feline patients that will need to stay with us for more than 24 hours, which all comply with the International Society of Feline Medicine standards. Our cat ward includes a little examination area, so when we need to examine a cat, we don’t have to take them outside the ward and run the risk of them escaping in the premises or coming across another patient.
Isolation is the area where patients with contagious diseases are hospitalised. By keeping them separately we can prevent diseases from being transferred to other patients or even humans.
Finally, we have placed a few kennels in our prep area. This is where our nurses spend most of their time. As a result, when we have a very unwell patient or a patient that is still sleepy from his/her anaesthetic, they can be kept here next to the nurses. In other words, unstable patients won’t be left alone with us.
