Christchurch Veterinary Referrals is a Surgical Referral Centre established by Shane and Charlotte Morrison in 2001.
Our Referral service was established in 2001 and is the longest standing Orthopaedic Referral Centre in Suffolk. We moved to new purpose built premises in June 2011.
Veterinary Surgeons from all over East Anglia refer their more difficult surgical cases to us. We have three surgeons; Shane Morrison and Adrian Dumitru who have huge experience. Because we are a small privately owned referral centre we are able to offer you and your pets a more personal service.
When you are referred to us by your usual vet an appointment will be made for you to see the actual surgeon who will be undertaking the surgery. The surgeon will explain the procedure in full with the aid of model joints, if required, to enable you to understand what will be happening during the surgery.
Any post operative check-ups will also be with the surgeon rather than another member of the team which quite often happens in larger referral centres.
The surgeon will then send your own vet a full report concerning the treatment that your pet has received, along with all aftercare instructions.
Veterinary treatment can often involve surgical procedures which can be stressful both for pets and owners. With our surgeons advanced training and expertise in this area, our fully equipped operating theatre and our excellent nurses, our clients can be sure their pet is in good hands. Our policy is to use only the safest anaesthetics available for all procedures.
