Sometimes it is necessary to hospitalise patients while they receive treatment or recover from major surgery. For patients hospitalised for more than 24 hours we are happy to arrange visits. We generally prefer to arrange visits in the afternoon once the day case patients have gone home. In certain situations we may advise against visiting if we think it will cause distress to your pet. However for longterm in patients at our Kesgrave Vet Hospital we believe that both pet and owner can benefit from regular visits.
