Read on to learn more about our services and how you can contribute to your animal’s optimal health.
Small Animal Services
Routine medical consultations, when performed regularly, offer the best possible way of monitoring your pets health. Along with annual vaccinations, regular consults allow us to detect changes in your pet which we can then assess & treat if required, before changes become irreversible.
Our physical exam will check all body systems and provide a profile of your pet which is stored in our records & always available to you. This baseline profile will help us compare exams & detect abnormalities on future visits.
With our physical exam & your pets clinical signs, we can build a problem list (if any). Our problem list allows us to form a list of "Differentials Diagnosis". If required, further investigations with blood & urine tests, xray and/or ultrasound, can be used to Rule In/Out items on our differential list.
You can read more about our Diagnostic Testing HERE.

Small Animal Surgery
All surgeries are performed under strict sterile conditions - just like in human surgery. We have a dedicated operating theatre and all equipment is sterilised in an autoclave prior to use.
Your pet will receive a sedative prior to surgery so they are calm and not concerned about the activity around them Our nurses take great care to ensure your pets receive lots of cuddles while we prepare them for surgery.
