Johnston and Farrell moved into a new, purpose built surgery in February 2010. The surgery was constructed
with a view to offering the best care possible for our small animal patients and to allow our staff to work comfortably in a specially
There is a large reception area where one of our staff will greet you. They will be happy to organise an appointment or
answer any queries you might have.
We stock a wide range of pet foods and supplies as well as worming, tick and flea treatments. Should you require something you can't see,
just ask one of the staff, who will do their best to help you out. We have daily deliveries from our wholesaler and can usually supply
what's needed within 24 hours.
Should your pet be admitted to the surgery, he/she would stay in either our purpose built kennels or cattery. Very sick animals may need
to be kept separate and will be housed in our isolation area. Smaller pets, such as rabbits, guinea pigs or other small rodents, would
be housed in isolation away from any noise or stresses.
The centre of the work area is the Prep room where animals are taken for examination, drug treatment, anaesthesia and preparation
Should your pet require an Xray, ECG (electrocardiogram) or an ultrasound examination they will be moved to
our Diagnostic room, where the appropriate examination can be carried out.
The practice has its own laboratory which allows us to process samples in-house to give us accurate information on your pets condition.
Pets for surgery are prepared after initial anaesthesia before being transferred into our aseptic theatre for surgery.
Dental patients are transferred to our dental room. We have air driven dental equipment and an ultrasonic dental scaler which allows us to perform very high quality dental attention on your pet.
All pets undergoing procedures in the practice are attended by a qualified veterinary nurse from the moment the anaesthetic is
administered to the moment your pet awakens in their kennel or cage. We use specialised pulse oximetry anaesthetic equipment to monitor your pet’s anaesthesia.
This ensures your pet receives continuous professional monitoring during its anaesthesia.
