Taking care of an animal means more than just giving shelter and food. There are a lot of things you can do to ensure your animal stays healthy and happy. Prevention is better than cure. It is essential that your puppy get his/her first inoculations at the right time and intervals.
We provide dental care services to keep your pets Colgate smile pearly white. Dental disease is one of the most common diseases seen in pets. Regular teeth cleaning has been proven to extend the lives of dogs and cats (read more to see why). We also offer a wide range of dental care products including tooth brushes, pet tooth paste, oral sprays etc.
Anaesthesia is a risk to all patients. Although the risks are greater with old or compromised patients, especially those with heart conditions or systemic illnesses, each animal is assessed prior to a general anaesthesia. Unfortunately, no anaesthesia is 100% safe and unforeseen complications may arise despite all efforts to avoid them.
Post operative care includes all treatments after surgical procedures. All surgeries will have their own discharge and post operative care instructions and it is always important to make sure you are aware of what these are. Medications dispensed, wound care, bandage care, follow up consultations and careful monitoring of the animal are just examples of post operative care that need to be followed if instructed.
Our clinic is fully equipped with the latest diagnostic tools to assist in the accurate diagnosis of your pet’s illness. If we need to perform any advance testing on the blood tests such as the levels of the thyroid hormone, seizure medication or other tests we send the blood samples to Idexx laboratories and results are sent to us within a few days.
Our vets are well equipped to provide excellent medical treatment to your beloved pets. We treat patients either as outpatients for the simple gastroenteritis to the more complicated biliary treatments where our patients receive intensive care and treatment such as lifesaving blood transfusions and remain hospitalised until they are well enough to come home. Our vets have a keen interest in solving complicated cases and stay up to date with the latest research by attending regular CPD talks and congresses..
Eye problems in animals are one of the most common things we see in practice. An eye examination involves checking the eyes with a light, measuring the eye’s pressure with a tonometer which can diagnose glaucoma, staining the eye with a dye to check for ulcerations of the cornea and measuring tear production.
We provide a full range of reproduction related services, they include oestrus monitoring, basic semen evaluation, artificial insemination, pregnancy diagnosis, monitoring of pregnancies via ultrasound scans, caesarian sections and birthing complications..
