The central hub in most practices is the preparation room, and the Warren House Veterinary Group is no exception.
Each of our branches has a spacious preparation room, leading out into the sterile theatres, wards and consulting rooms. All pets that are admitted are taken through to our preparation room and greeted by our teams. Blood samples, intravenous cannula placement, and medication administration are all commonly carried out in the preparation room.
This large, multipurpose space is also used to prepare our surgical patients before their procedures, this includes giving a relaxing dose of pre-medication to make the patient sleepy, inducing anaesthesia with an injectable agent before placing a tube into the airway to support breathing, and clipping and cleaning the surgical site.
Some procedures are known as 'dirty' procedures and are carried out in the preparation room to prevent contamination of our sterile theatre.
