Our Services

Vaccinations

It is important to keep your pet’s vaccines up to date, no matter if a new kitten/puppy or if an adult/senior pet. All puppies and kittens should be vaccinated against life-threatening diseases from 6 weeks of age. Many infectious diseases still pose a significant threat to dogs and cats that are unvaccinated. Vaccines help pets live longer, healthier lives.

Sterilisation

Dogs and cats can be spayed or neutered as early as 4.5 months old. For female pets, it involves the removal of the ovaries and uterus and is called a ‘spay’. Male pets have both testicles removed and is called a ‘neuter’. Both procedures require a full general anaesthetic. In sterilising your pet, you are helping reduce the pet population and preventing other concerns like cancer, infections or unwanted behavioural changes.

Dental Care

Because dental diseases can cause health problems with your pet’s heart, kidneys and other organs, having your pet’s teeth cleaned regularly is essential to good health. We offer a free dental check-up service to allow us to provide you with an accurate estimate. A dental procedure involves scaling your pet’s teeth under a full general anaesthetic and at time extractions.

Diagnostic Work Ups

All essential lab equipment is available in-house allowing for rapid and reliable evaluation of all clinical samples collected. Our in-house blood machine can perform numerous blood tests providing same-day answers to most diseases your pet may be suffering from.
