Ultrasound and Radiography
We have dedicated imaging equipment to help us in our diagnostic work-up. We have two X-ray machines, and we use digital developing technology, as do most practices nowadays. We use our ultrasound scanner every day, and as patients do not generally require sedation, it is a very safe and effective test for many conditions. We can perform abdominal and chest ultrasound, and also echocardiography, at our practice.
Our in-house laboratory allows us to work up cases rapidly, with results on the same day. Haematology, biochemistry, urinalysis and microscopy can be run routinely, and we can al-so run a number of ancillary tests. We use an overnight courier service to an external labor-atory for further tests when required.
Surgical Services

We perform a wide range of surgical procedures at Ystwyth Vets, both soft tissue, and orthopaedics, including cruciate stabilisation, patella luxation, fracture repair and disc surgery. Mill Referrals is now located at Ystwyth Vets; follow this link for more detail about the facilities and services offered. Occasionally, a complex problem might benefit from referral elsewhere for advanced imaging, or a specialist surgical procedure, and we are very well placed to arrange this for your pet.

Dental Procedures

We have a good range of dental equipment for most sizes of animal (including horses!), and specialised dental x-ray facilities, allowing a speedy diagnostic work-up for dental problems.
