Here at Bridge Veterinary Group, our patients have the privilege to access treatment at our Middlesbrough Hospital, should they need it.
Our hospital facilities include:
- Two dog wards with walk in kennels to facilitate large breed dogs.
- One cat ward which is located away from the dog wards to ensure that your cats stay at the hospital is as stress free as possible.
- One stray ward – we have the ability to hospitalise injured stray animals separate from our main wards to minimise risk of infection to our patients and facilitate a less stressful environment for them.
- One isolation ward – our isolation facilities means that we can offer barrier nursing care to patients with infections conditions such as Parvovirus, Campylobacter, Leptospirosis etc therefore minimising the risk of infection to our non-infectious hospitalised patients, staff and clients.
- Walk-in shower facilities for canine patients.
- Outdoor exercise runs for patients.
- Dentistry facilities.
- Digital X-ray radiography, allowing us to see abnormalities in more detail.
- Surgical theatre suite.
- Orthopaedic surgical facilities.
Anaesthesia and patient monitoring facilities:
- Pulse oximeter monitoring – a non-invasive device used to measure the oxygen level (or oxygen saturation) in the blood.
- Blood pressure monitoring –
- Oscillometry – Oscillometric measurement devices are like the ones you see in a human hospital. They use an electronic pressure sensor with a numerical LCD screen to read the blood pressure.
- Doppler – another machine in which measures blood pressure.
- Infusion pump drivers- machine devices (similar to those used in human hospitals) to regulate the flow of fluid therapy through an intravenous drip.
- CRI syringe driver – a syringe driver administers a calculated and continuous flow of medication intravenously.
- Multi-parameter monitor – a machine which displays the patients ECG (Electrocardiogram), heart rate, respiratory rate, blood pressure, Capnography (monitoring of a patients level of carbon dioxide) and Pulse oximeter monitoring. This machine facilitates the monitoring of critical care patients.
- Oesophageal stethoscope – this is a type of stethoscope which can be placed down into the oesophagus of an anaesthetised patient where the heart can be heard very clearly.
- Oxygen tent – an enclosure which the air supply can be enriched with oxygen. This is very effective at assisting patients who have difficulties with breathing and who get stressed with the use of an oxygen mask or oxygen nasal prongs.
