Eastcott Veterinary Referrals, in Swindon, Wiltshire has completed a £3 million extension and refurbishment programme.

The new facilities include an emergency and critical care unit, a dental suite, seven operating theatres, a medicine investigation room, new fluoroscopy equipment and a 1.5T high-field MRI scanner.

Eastcott's clinical director Duncan Barnes said: “Our amazing team of clinicians, nurses, physiotherapists and administrative staff have worked hard to maintain an excellent standard of service throughout this period of development.

"We have also been fortunate to recruit wonderful new team members to be able to provide a comprehensive service with real strength in depth."

Managing director Peter Southerden added: “We have invested a lot of time, money and energy into ensuring we can deliver the highest quality of care to our patients and we’re very proud of the results.

"It’s no exaggeration to say our wide range of medical facilities can now be regarded as human-standard - that’s how determined we are to provide the best treatment by utilising the latest technology and equipment.

"We have a purpose-built ECC unit with all the latest intensive care equipment, including its own laboratory, critical care cribs, temperature, intensive care kennels, ventilator and defibrillator.

"We have also created what we believe is one of the best dentistry suites in the world, befitting our world-class dental specialists.

"There are seven operating theatres, which include a dedicated ophthalmology and interventional radiography theatres.

"We also provide a comprehensive and coordinated approach to cancer care, with a dedicated chemotherapy room where our specialist-led, internal medicine team is able to appropriately select and administer the full range of treatments.

"We have 10 consultation rooms and have doubled the number of kennels to almost 100 so we have upgraded, extended and expanded on virtually every front."
