A veterinary practice has stood on the site of the hospital for over a hundred years, and is an important part of the Wimbledon Village community. Around the 1990s the hospital was a specialist referral centre, but has since expanded to include a thriving first opinion practice under the umbrella of the Goddard Veterinary Group. As a result, our first opinion clients are able to have full access to the state of the art facilities and veterinary expertise usually only found in a referral setting. Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital aims to provide the highest possible standards of veterinary care to all our patients, and maintaining this level of care is paramount to our whole team of dedicated vets, nurses and lay staff.
Stone Lion Veterinary Hospital is superbly equipped to ensure we offer our patients the highest quality care. We have an MRI scanner on site, primarily used by our Specialist Neurologists on the referral side. Endoscopes, an ultrasound scanner and an in-house laboratory provide clinicians with the facilities to diagnose with minimal delay. There is also an intensive care unit with incubator, oxygen cage and an isolation unit. In-patients are kept in the comfortable, quiet surroundings of separate dog, cat and small animal wards, to help minimise stress. Air-conditioning and heating systems provide a carefully controlled environment on the wards at all times. Walk- in kennels are available for large breeds of dogs and there is a covered exercise yard suitable for toileting and supervised exercise. Owners are invited to visit in-patients daily between 4.00pm and 6.30pm and can be arranged by phoning reception.
Stone Lion offers referral services in Ophthalmology, Neurology, Dermatology and Physiotherapy (see theGoddard Veterinary Group website for more details).
Sally sees her patients on Mondays and Tuesdays at Stone Lion. The hospital is fully equipped with all the instruments and machinery required for a complete ophthalmology service, including electroretinography, specialised ocular ultrasonography, phacoemulsification machine for cataract removal and an MRI scanner. Sally works closely with the two neurologists at Stone Lion (Clare Rusbridge and Kate Stalin) when investigating patients which have neuro-ophthlamic problems (such as brain tumours causing sudden blindness).
Sally also undertakes a limited number of eye tests under the BVA/KC/ISDS scheme at Stone Lion (see eye test page).
