Referral Surgery

Find out more about our Internal Medicine and Soft Tissue Surgery

Cedarmount, at heart, is a team effort. I have been leading my team for over thirty years, taking referrals in all aspects of internal medicine, and some soft tissue surgery (notably BOAS surgeries, thoracotomies, liver and biliary surgery and oral cancer work). I regularly manage cases in all aspects of disease of dogs and cats.

I am delighted to receive advice calls or emails - craig@cedarmountvets.co.uk - from veterinary colleagues, whether a referral is a practical option or not. If a case does need to be referred, I find a brief chat with the referring vet is exceptionally helpful, rather than relying on a case-note-transfer alone. I work part-time now, so if I am not immediately available my staff will contact me and I will try very hard to call you back as soon as I can.

Cedarmount is blessed with several very experienced clinicians and nurses, so if I really cannot attend, it is often possible for one of the team to take the referral (perhaps in consultation with me). If you would like to discuss a case on behalf of a client please do give us a call.

At Cedarmount we have a good range of diagnostic equipment which facilitates high quality work:

  • One-port laparoscopic tower from USA – facilitates liver biopsies, bile sampling and visualisation of internal organs
  • Referral-quality ultrasound machine with Colour Doppler (and training and extensive experience in its use)
  • Equipment for accurate blood pressure measurement in dogs and cats
  • A range of rigid and flexible endoscopes – allowing imaging and biopsy of nasal chambers even in cats, stomach, duodenum, colon, vagina and bronchi
  • iStat in house blood gas analysis
  • Robust and accurate blood work using IDEXX instrumentation
  • Pancreatectomy for insulinoma
  • High quality microscope for accurate cytological examination (intra-operative diagnosis on occasion)

I have a derogation from VMD allowing use of Oncept vaccination for Canine Malignant Melanoma (under auspices of R(D)SVS, Edinburgh).
