We use several Referral centers depending on the need of your pet and whether they require access to a specialist or hospital level diagnostics, such as MRI or CT scanners.
For neurological and orthopaedic services we have for many years referred to Dovecote Veterinary Hospital based in Castle Donington. This is an RCVS Accredited Practice Small Animal Hospital who have an excellent record for specialist surgery, physiotherapy and more recently oncology.
Orthopaedic specialists from West Midlands Referrals (WMR) mobile service have been coming to Thompsons since 2004 to treat your pet. These orthopaedic problems range from fractures to ligament injuries – so you do not have to travel far to get a first class service!
Over the last few years Mrs Sarah Smith has taken cardiology referrals whether to diagnose or monitor heart/chest conditions or to undertake specialist diagnostics and operations.
From time to time it is necessary to refer further afield to a specialist hospital such as Pride Park in Derby, Willows near Birmingham or one of the UK veterinary school hospitals.
All these specialists offer a very personal and dedicated service that compliments our team very well.
