Our services include:
Our consultations include a thorough and comprehensive medical examination. This is to ensure that we leave no health issue uncovered. We always check eyes, look at ears, take temperatures, examine the chest and abdomen thoroughly and check the skin and coat. We prefer to spend more time with you, not less.
We use the best vaccines on the market to ensure that your dog or cat stays healthy, with strong and long-lasting immunity against viruses and bacteria that are known to cause illness. The new Nobivac vaccine allows your puppy to finish its vaccination course at 10 weeks of age, and start socialising earlier. If your pet is lost, our Back Home microchips ensure that they are returned to you as soon as possible, regardless of where they're found or which vet or shelter they're taken to.
Sometimes we need to look deeper into your pet to help us diagnose a problem. Often, this involves taking x-rays of bones and joints, or of the chest, abdomen or head. However, x-rays only show us a silhouette of the structures inside the body. Sometimes we need to use ultrasound to get a better idea of the size and structure of soft tissues and organs. This is all done in-house in a safe and secure environment.
Just like humans, pets can get intestinal and stomach ulcers, as well as foreign bodies, polyps and masses. Our endoscope allows us to see right inside the oesophagus, intestines and stomach in full colour.
If your pet has smelly breath, brown tooth discolouration or a poor appetite, it should have a full dental check. Poor dental health is a very common problem, particularly in pets over the age of three years. Apart from causing pain or discomfort in the mouth, it can lead to many other health issues such as chronic bacteraemia (blood poisoning), kidney disease, heart disease and tooth root abscesses. Dental disease may literally reduce the lifespan of your pet. If you are concerned that your pet may be suffering from dental disease, make an appointment with our nurses.
Whether your pet requires the simplest surgical procedure (for example, removing a small lump on the skin) or major surgery (for example, open abdominal or chest surgery, or bone and joint surgery), this can be done in our state-of-the-art operating theatre and procedures room. We are training to be able to offer the best available surgery for repair of cruciate ligament rupture, the tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA).
We dispense any necessary medications from our in-house pharmacy and also perform cytology (looking at slides under the microscope) and urinalysis (examining the urine) in-house. If blood tests are required, we are able to take a sample immediately and send this off to the lab for same-day processing.
We have a wide range of dog and cat food available, including prescription diets. If you require a product that is not in stock, we will be happy to order it in for you. We also carry treats, grooming and skin products. Give us a call or make an appointment with one of our nurses to discuss the best way to provide your pet with complete and balanced nutrition.
