Hospitalisation

At Moor Cottage, our hospital wards are supervised by out Veterinary Nurses day and night, providing excellent care for all our in-patients. It a patient requires intensive care then we have the facilities and the qualified staff to ensure constant monitoring and treatment as needed. A member of the Moor Cottage Vet Team is always on call for our in-patients meaning that there is always a continuity of care for our hospitalised patients.

Features of our hospital wards

  • Separate cat and dog wards with a segregated and screened rabbit section in the cat ward.
  • Intensive care oxygen cage: the temperature, humidity and oxygen can be controlled helping some of our more delicate and poorly patients.
  • Stress reducing pheromone vaporisers used in these areas: species-specific (also used in the waiting rooms).
  • Variety of cage and kennel sizes dependant on patients needs.
  • All stainless steel cage and kennelling allows for optimum cleaning and thus reducing infection risk.
  • Kennels and cages positioned and screened in such a way that individual patients are never face-to-face and thus avoids potential confrontation and stress for our pets.
  • Lighting can be reduced to low levels again to reduce stress for our patients.
  • Comfortable ambient temperature kept steady with climate control units.
  • Background music available to help keep the calm atmosphere within the wards.
  • Independent oxygen supply can be provided for any kennel as needed.
  • Computer and telephone terminals within the ward area means that the nurse does not have to leave the wards and thus can maintain a constant presence there.
