We are open, click here for our COVID guidelines.

There are two main reasons that we may need to hospitalise your pet at Blackrock vets:

Firstly, all routine procedures such as neutering or lump removals are admitted as day patients to our hospital. Thankfully due to modern medicine, your pet will often be discharged and home again within several hours.

Secondly, if your pet is too sick to be treated as an outpatient, they may need to be hospitalised for further diagnostic tests, fluid therapy or pain management. Whilst hospitalised, your pet will be kept in a temperature-controlled ward which is intensively monitored by our vets and nurses to ensure optimal comfort and pain management requirements are met.
