General Health and Wellbeing

Keeping your pet healthy is an essential part of pet ownership.

Every stage of your pet’s life is different and we will guide you throughout their lifetime, providing advice on diet, training (puppy skool) and behavioural issues, preventative health care such as vaccinations and parasite control, desexing, microchips, grooming, emergencies, illness and aged care.

You are welcome to call our wonderful team for further information.

Health Checks

Regular veterinary health checks and diagnostic testing aid in the early detection and treatment of health problems, improving your pet’s quality of life. All pets should have an annual health check and twice yearly checks are recommended for senior pets.

Health checks include a thorough physical examination and often diagnostic tests such as complete blood count (CBC), biochemistry, electrolytes and urinalysis. Other tests may be recommended including biopsies or imaging (radiographs, ultrasound).

These tests provide baseline (‘normal’) levels for your pet and a greater ability to detect underlying disease. Early detection of disease can lead to successful treatment, allowing you to look forward to more years with your pet.

Diet and Nutrition

Along with regular exercise and veterinary care, high quality nutrition is essential for maintaining your pet’s health. Nutritional requirements change throughout your pet’s lifetime and with various medical conditions. We recommend and stock a range of premium pet foods, including specialised diets to assist with disease treatment and prevention. The range includes Hill’s Science and Prescription Diets, and Royal Canin.
