Wound healing

Wound healing is a core competence of Dr. Hiestand: around 30 years of experience in surgery combined with the latest findings from research and development in the field of cold plasma technology result in completely new ways of treating skin diseases and wound healing disorders. We use cold plasma in wound healing. This physical therapy can replace antibiotics, reduce itching and pain, and stimulate healing.

Operations (Surgery):

  • Eye operations: Eye removal, eyelid margin correction
  • Anal pouch removal
  • Abdominal surgery (castration, intestinal surgery, gastric torsion, tumor removal)
  • Bone surgery (in accidents with bone fractures: fracture stabilization/osteosynthesis)
  • Orthopedic surgeries: Knee joint: cruciate ligament rupture, patellar luxation (dislocation of the patella)
  • Electrosurgery
  • Plastic surgery (nose enlargement, brachycephalic syndrome)
  • Wound rehabilitation
  • Tooth extractions, jaw operations 
  • and much more...

The anesthesia is tailored to the patient and can range from total intravenous administration to inhalation anesthesia (gas). Monitoring is done with electronic monitors, which display circulatory values and oxygen supply. In case of emergency we can react immediately and artificial respiration is also possible. In the recovery box, patients continue to be well monitored by means of mobile monitoring devices and electronically controlled warming systems.


Gait problems, limping, pain, back problems. We offer detailed clinical examination of legs and back, check segmental mobility of the back (blockages) and can make clarifications with X-ray and ultrasound. Orthopedic surgery (cruciate ligament rupture, patellar dislocations) and pain management are possible treatments. For neutral second opinions contact us.

Shock wave

Shock wave therapy is a "non-invasive" but physical form of therapy. The term "non-invasive" refers to treatments without injury to the body surface. A typical "invasive" therapy, on the other hand, would be surgery. Shock waves have been used in human orthopaedics since the 1990s. More recently, this form of therapy has been used more and more in small animal orthopaedics.

Dental clinic - dentist

We take the subject of dentistry very seriously and are very well equipped for it. Dental patients are therefore in very good hands with us. It is part of our everyday practice to carry out oral and dental treatment on all small animals. We have a state-of-the-art digital dental X-ray for diagnostic purposes.

Eye examinations, ophthalmology (eye clinic/ophthalmology) is one of our specialties! Examination by means of binocular slit lamp, eye pressure measurements, examination of the retina by means of fundus camera as well as surgical corrections around the eye. 

(ZRT)-Extracellular Matrix Therapy

Cell biological regulation therapy can be used as an adjunctive therapy for many diseases.  In particular, complaints of the musculoskeletal system itself are the focus. Usually two treatments are necessary at an interval of 2-3 days. The treatment lasts 10-20 min. depending on the size of the treated area. No medication is necessary for the treatment! The treatment is painless and is well tolerated, even enjoyed most of the time!

Cold plasma therapy - antibiotic reduction and better healing

Cold plasma, the newest physical therapy, is now available to us in the veterinary office! With the device in the form of a 'pen', we can treat pathological and painful regions and directly stimulate the cells to achieve faster healing. By changing the behavior of the cells, we correct disturbances in biological cell communication, reduce inflammation, itching and pain.
