The surgical theatres at MASH are equipped with advanced surgical tools, cutting-edge equipment, and innovative technology to facilitate precise and minimally invasive procedures. These theatres are specifically designed to accommodate a wide range of surgical specialties, including orthopaedics, neurosurgery, soft tissue surgery, and more.
One of the notable features of the surgical theatres is the integration of advanced imaging systems, such as high-resolution digital fluoroscopy, providing detailed anatomical information to guide the surgical team during procedures, allowing for improved surgical accuracy and intraoperative decision-making.
To facilitate minimally invasive surgeries, the theatres are equipped with specialized equipment, such as laparoscopic and arthroscopic towers. These minimally invasive procedures reduce trauma and promote faster recovery times for animals.
The theatres are meticulously maintained, adhering to strict cleanliness and sterilization protocols to minimize the risk of infections and ensure aseptic conditions. The well-ventilated environments help to maintain optimal air quality and reduce the chance of airborne contaminants.
To support complex surgical procedures, MASH’s theatres are equipped with cutting-edge anaesthesia and monitoring systems. These systems are employed to continuously monitor vital parameters, such as heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen levels, and end-tidal carbon dioxide. This real-time monitoring enables prompt intervention and ensures the safety and stability of the animal throughout the procedure.
Hospital and ICU:
MASH boast spacious dedicated dog and cat wards as well as an infectious disease ward, surgical ward, and an ICU.
The dog and cat wards provide enclosures for non-critical cases. Dogs and cats are kept completely separate to minimise stress and make hospital stays for our patients as comfortable as possible.
Our infectious disease ward allows us to provide optimal care to patients with infectious diseases whilst protecting the rest of our guests in hospital from potentially transmissible diseases.
The surgical ward allows our surgical team to closely monitor our surgical patients both pre and immediately post op to ensure a smooth and safe surgical journey before being transferred to either our standard wards or ICU.
Intensive Care Unit (ICU):
Our Intensive Care Unit (ICU) is equipped with advanced monitoring equipment and specialized facilities to provide round-the-clock care for critically ill or injured animals. With continuous monitoring, oxygen therapy, pain management, and advanced nursing care, we ensure the best possible outcomes for your pet during their stay in the ICU.
