The Prep area as it's name suggests is the area where we prepare animals for surgery, in the operating theatre through the door in the far end.
In many ways it is the hub of the practice, with access to the dispensary, lab consulting rooms and reception from here, and also doors leading to the theatre, Xray area, and both kennels.
We also use this area for minor, non-sterile operations and for dental procedures.
The bank of kennels on the left are recovery kennels where animals or kept immediately post-op whilst they recover. Here we can keep an eye on them as they wake up, before returning them to their kennels.
