Visiting Specialists

Orthopaedic

Orthopaedic surgery encompasses any surgery that is related to bones or joints. It includes procedures such as fracture repairs, ligament repairs and spinal surgery to name a few. 
Visiting specialist and friend of the clinic, Dr Geoff Robins uses our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite to perform routine and complex orthopaedic surgical procedures. 

Internal Medicine & Ultrasound

Dr Judd Sumner regularly visits the clinic to perform routine and emergency ultrasounds as part of our vets consultation process. 

Ultrasounds are often used to view soft tissue and where x-ray may not tell us the full story. If your pet requires an ultrasound we will ask that you fast them as many pets will require sedation to stay in a lying position for long periods of time. As the process is similar to that of a pregnancy ultrasound, your pet will be clipped and prepped with ultrasound gel in order to have good contact with the skin.

Cardiology

Pet's may develop heart murmurs and other cardiac related disease, generally later in life. While our vets are knowledgeable in diagnosing and treating these diseases, a specialist is often called to consult on the stage of the condition. 

Dr Geoff Nicholson is available to visit Stones Corner Vet to perform echocardiograms and other specific testing as well perform cardiac examinations on your pet.

 

Your pet does not have to be a current patient of the clinic however we do require a consultation with our vets prior to arranging our visiting specialists to attend. They will perform a physical examination, discuss your concerns and may perform blood and urine tests, and x-rays.
