About us

Springwell Veterinary Surgery is family owned and does not subscibe to the "corporate" model of doing business. I am proud of what we have achieved since I started in Tring on 23rd May 1988, and consider that we treat animals with the love and respect with which I would most like my dog to be treated. This is what we try to accomplish:

  • Fifteen minute appointments, so that we have time.
  • Diagnosis with blood tests while you wait if required.
  • Same day assessment and treatment, including surgery, where appropriate.
  • Twenty five percent of our procedures are performed endosurgically (keyhole) or endoscopically.
  • One Veterinary surgeon per case for continuity.
  • Veterinary surgeons collaborating on complicated cases.
  • A multidisciplinary team to manage most cases in house, we also accept referrals.
  • GENUINE kennel side emergency care with critical care vets at "Vets Now" locally.
  • End of life care including home medical visits and euthanasia out of hours in collaboration with Selix Vets  
  • All of our equipment purchased new and meticulously maintained.
  • RCVS accredited practice.

Your animals first, always.

Meet September pet of the month - Callie

Cali Huggett 1Young, good looking, happy and playful.  But Cally was experiencing the darker side of a urinary condition.  Sent to us from another vet's, she was having difficulty urinating, with discomfort and some obstruction.  Her x-rays and scan had shown a small area of thickened soft tissue at the opening of her bladder.  

Making a diagnosis was quite simple and we achieved this by performing a cystoscopically guided biopsy under general anaesthetic.  That is the introduction of a small en-sheathed telescope, with working channel, into the bladder via her urethra.  We visualised the mass and took samples with biopsy forceps.  The histo-pathology confirmed the tissue to be cancerous.  Despite a guarded outlook, we were able to offer treatment options.

The first priority, remove the tumour.  This resection was performed with a Diode Laser guided through the cystoscopy sheath (see Images).  Repeat examinations will be required but with luck these may only be required every three months and treatment should achieve good palliation.  In addition we have put Callie onto a simple long term medicine which has anti neoplastic effects with this type of tumour.

This might well be a cancer that won't be fully cured but shortly after our Laser resection Callie's owner reported that her dog was so very much happier than she'd been for a long time.  If we can keep her happy, painfree and she can live with the cancer rather than die from it, then that to us is a good job done!
