We have recently invested in the latest equipment and training needed to now provide minimally invasive laparoscopic investigation and surgery.

Our team of experienced vets and nurses perform a variety of operations on a daily basis at our Market Drayton and Newport surgeries. We use state of the art equipment in modern theatres with pets monitored by nurses continuously using digital recording equipment. All of our team enjoy surgery and we are proud of our results.
We have excellent X-ray facilities at our Market Drayton practise ensuring that we can treat your pets effectively. X-rays are extensively used at the practise as they are an easy way to examine large areas of the patient non-invasively and can provide a great deal of information, whether it is a suspected broken bone or a diseased internal organ.
At Tern vets we invested in the latest endoscopy equipment to enable us to perform minimally invasive investigations of the respiratory, gastrointestinal and urinary tract. Whereas previously we often needed to resort to surgery, endoscopy allows us to collect samples or remove objects without needing to put an animal through an operation.
An ultrasound examination is an imaging technique in which deep structures of the body can be visualised by recording echoes of ultrasonic waves which are directed into the tissues. Unlike x-rays which are potentially dangerous, ultrasound waves are considered to be entirely safe.
Diagnostic tests provide essential information by which our veterinarians can identify blood disorders, kidney and liver disease, diabetes, infection, cancer, thyroid disease and other hormonal problems.
Keeping teeth and gums healthy and clear of disease is vital to give your pet a long and healthy life. We have the latest ultrasonic dental equipment which means that we can provide quick and effective dental procedures.
Should your pet have a heart problem we can offer an electrocardiogram (ECG) as an aid to diagnosis. An ECG can show changes to the normal electrical conductivity of the heart muscle which can be useful in diagnosis of problems with the heart’s rate and rhythm.
This is what happens if your pet is so unwell that we want to keep them in our surgery so we can give the treatment they need. This may involve a stay of days or even weeks in particular cases.
