Consultations

During consultations, we are happy to spend as much time as required to provide you and your pet with a thorough and personalised service. We fully discuss diagnostic and treatment options to allow you to make educated decisions on your pet’s health care options. Our vets and vet nurses can assist you with any veterinary advice you may require.

Hospital Care

We have separate dog and cat wards to provide your pets with a comfortable, low stress environment whilst in our care. The wards have roomy cages with soft bedding and our staff work together to provide a high level of care to hospitalised patients.

Microchipping

Microchipping is a form of pet identification using a small implant injected under the skin. Each microchip contains a unique code, detected by a microchip scanner. In NSW dogs and cats are required by law to be microchipped and registered on the NSW Companion Animal Register.

Maintaining up to date/accurate registration details is so important. Sadly each year many animals end up in pounds and animal shelters due to inadequate details or unregistered microchips.

Horses and ponies must be microchipped prior to receiving their initial Hendra Virus vaccination. This is usually performed without sedation; the microchip is inserted deep into the nuchal ligament on the near side, usually two inches below the mane.

Pathology

Clinical pathology involves laboratory evaluation of blood, fluid or body tissues to identify disease. Common lab tests include blood chemistry, complete blood count, blood clotting times, urinalysis and faecal analysis, biopsy examination, cultures and infectious disease testing. Our in-house laboratory is equipped to perform many diagnostic tests allowing our vets to achieve a rapid and accurate diagnosis. More specialised tests may need to be performed by an external veterinary laboratory, with most results available within 24 hours.

Pet Insurance

Many pet owners are unable to meet the costs of unexpected or large veterinary fees and often decisions regarding their pet’s health are influenced by finances. Pet insurance assists with veterinary costs ensuring you can afford the best possible treatment for your pet. We strongly recommended pet insurance to provide your pet with optimum care during times of illness or injury, and for your own peace of mind. We offer 4 weeks free pet insurance to puppies and kittens between the ages of 8 wks to 12 months. Cover for injury and accidents starts immediately. Illness cover starts 72 hours after free insurance is activated.

Preventative Care

Preventative health care is vital for your pet’s well being. We recommend providing your dogs and cats with protection against the internal and external parasites found in our local area. We stock a range of preventative products against:

  • Paralysis ticks
  • Fleas
  • Intestinal worms
  • Heartworm

Preventative health care is also essential for other species such as horses and exotics; contact our staff for further information.

Radiography

Our clinic is fully equipped to take diagnostic radiographs (x-rays)of your pet. Radiographs are an important tool to aid in disease and injury diagnosis, particularly for conditions involving bones, chest or abdomen.

Senior Health

As your pet ages, their health care needs change but often these changes can be subtle and unnoticed. You can help extend the life of your pet with regular veterinary checks to ensure detection and treatment of age-related problems. Many common conditions in older pets can be managed through diet, supplements and pharmaceuticals. Common age related problems include arthritis, cardiac and renal failure, dental disease, cataracts and neoplasia (cancer).

Skin Disorders

Skin disorders are one of the most common health problems in pets, and the condition of an animal’s skin and coat can be an important indicator of their general health. There are a wide range of causes including external parasites, infections, allergies, metabolic problems and stress. When a skin condition occurs, your pet may respond with excessive scratching, chewing or licking often causing secondary problems. Diagnosis of skin conditions can be complicated and many require long term treatment.
