A VET in Basingstoke is working with other experts to help manage a common condition in dogs. 

St Kitts Veterinary Group has teamed up with other experts to provide a holistic approach to the treatment of elbow dysplasia. 

Since moving into its new practice in Brighton Hill Parade, St Kitts Vets has launched an elbow clinic to provide an accessible and affordable option for families to have their pets treated.

The service is being supported by ProVetSurg; owned and led by veterinary surgeon, Nicci Meadows, who expressed her excitement to be working alongside St Kitts to provide this treatment.

Nicci added: "Working with familiar colleagues in a brand new practice, with state-of-the-art facilities such as the new CT scanner, means that pets can be treated by a cohesive team providing care to the highest possible standard.

“We can’t wait to start welcoming pets and their families to St Kitts Vets Basingstoke for orthopaedic assessment and procedures in order to make a real difference to their comfort and quality of life.”

The service will also be supported by the veterinary physiotherapist, James Beacroft, owner of Beacroft Referrals Veterinary Rehabilitation and Hydrotherapy Centre.

The Elbow Clinic will utilise advanced diagnoses and treatment methods, including CT imaging and arthroscopy, which involves an examination of the elbow joint with a tiny camera, alongside joint injections and stem cell therapy.

Together treatment will help to improve comfort for dogs affected by elbow dysplasia and osteoarthritis.

St Kitts Vets is welcoming referrals from other veterinary practices in the surrounding areas for individual CT scans and Elbow Clinic cases.
