At Parker and Crowther we are proud to offer surgery.

We perform most of our routine surgeries at each of branches.

If a surgery requires imaging, or is more advanced we may ask you to travel to dedicated theatre at our Daleside branch.


We offer:

  • Routine neutering (castration, spay) of dogs, cats and rabbits
  • Non routine neutering for undescended testicles
  • Soft tissue surgery such as skin biopsies, gut, bladder surgery
  • Eye removal (enucleation)
  • Ear cleaning
  • Dentals (tooth extractions).
  • Simple hernia repair

Here are some useful information relating to what to expect when you come for surgery at P & C, and some general post operative advice.


We also offer Orthopaedic surgery. Our senior Vet Philip Lauder performs

  • Simple fracture repairs
