Hospitalised Pets

When your pet is unwell and we need to admit him/her to hospital

Hermitage Vets Hospitalised PetsOccasionally with very unwell pets or those who have had an accident we will want to admit them to our clinic, for treatment  We know how worrying this is for pet owners and we will keep in regular contact with you. We keep pets in only when necessary and for the minimum time needed.

If your pet has to stay with us, rest assured that he/she will be kept as comfortable as possible. Our ward is climate controlled so nobody gets too hot or cold. We use lovely soft vet beds in our kennels so pets are kept very cozy during their stay.

We have a dedicated hospital nurse looking after in patients every day ensuring all their needs are catered for. Some pets will be on intravenous fluids which means a little shaved patch on their paw after they go home.

We feed our sick pets soft palatable food while they are with us, often coaxing them to take their first meal using reliable old chicken! Sometimes there is a protest when they go home and dry food is resumed! Our nurses and vets give each pet the time and attention they deserve until they are well enough to go home.
