Southill Vets’ highly skilled Veterinary Surgeons have many decades of experience between them performing routine and more complex surgical procedures.

Whatever the reason for surgical treatment, you can rest assured that your pet will receive the very best care from our compassionate & knowledgable team.

Post-op care

Following your pet’s surgery, our team will call you to discuss how the procedure went and arrange a discharge appointment time. You will receive any post-op care and instructions you will need to follow at home. You may also be given a follow-up appointment with a Vet or a Nurse. If your pet needs overnight monitoring following a procedure, our team will discuss this with you.
