The Mobile Vet Surgery

About The Mobile Vet Surgery

Dan is an IOW local having grown up in Wootton Bridge and attending school at Ryde High School. On finishing his A-levels, he attended Bristol Vet School and after graduating in 2005 he joined a mixed practice in Wiltshire, where he worked for a few years before returning to the Island with his wife Kirsty (who just happens to be a veterinary nurse!)

Kirsty is a professionally qualified Veterinary Nurse with 10 years experience. She has always strived to provide excellent care for all animals whether under anaesthesia or in hospital, she loves the personal touch and providing the TLC that’s required. Kirsty has obtained additional qualifications to better herself and is registered with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS) meaning that you can stay content that your pets are under the very best of care when in her hands.

The surgery has been custom designed by Kirsty and Dan from scratch.

The interior houses heated kennels for comfortable recovery of patients immediately post surgery prior to them being returned to their home. Sliding out from beneath the kennel is a veterinary walk on scales which will accurately weight patients up to 200kg.

The vehicle has been designed with operations in mind. To this effect there is a wall mounted anaesthetic machine with oxygen and all the necessary monitoring equipment, to include pulse oximetry (assessing oxygenation of patients), blood pressure monitoring equipment and more!

All the necessary surgical tools and consumables are housed in the built in cupboards where, carefully stowed are our analysis machines and microscope amongst other laboratory/diagnostic equipment to help diagnose our patients ailments whilst on the move.

Also neatly contained within the mobile surgery is a dental machine with polisher and scaler to keep your pets teeth in pristine condition.

The onboard dispensary ensures that we have medication at hand, be it flea/worm treatment or more specific prescription medication. Anything we do not have can be obtained the very next day for you.

Roaming internet and access to veterinary software allows us to keep our patients records at our fingertips, whilst a mobile card machine makes payment quick and convenient for our clients.

Being mobile we do not have a direct electricity source so kindly request access to a standard plug socket to plug into the mobile surgery, although we have a back up generator for use as necessary.
