Book a Vet consultation

We understand that booking your pet in for surgery can be a worrying time. You can rest assured that our caring and compassionate team will provide your pet with lots of love and attention during their stay with us. Plus, we have separate cat and dog wards to reduce any unnecessary stress on our patients.

Whether your pet’s procedure is being done as a day case, or they need to stay with us longer for close monitoring, your pet will always be given the STAR treatment here with us.


The surgical care we undertake includes:

  • Routine procedures like pet neutering and lump removal.
  • Dental treatments.
  • Emergency surgical intervention as the result of an acute injury or illness.
  • Removal of foreign bodies.
  • Emergency cesareans.


Orthopaedic procedures for cruciate ligament repairs, hip dysplasia, fracture repair, and other musculoskeletal issues are performed at our surgery. An external specialist orthopaedic consultant surgeon visits our practice regularly (COVID allowing) to undertake orthopaedic procedures – these are not carried out by our Veterinary Surgeons.


Fully equipped for surgery

At STAR Vets in Appleby Magna, we’ve invested heavily in our veterinary facilities to ensure your pet receives the best care, including state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment and an on-site laboratory.
