Just like your local GP doctor we can treat your pet accordingly using our knowledge and latest tests and medications. Any emergencies or severely sick pets please go directly to one of the referral centres.
We offer all vaccines that you pet would need. At the time of vaccine we do a full clinical examination. We can discuss any concerns you may have and point out conditions to be aware of.
Dogs -C5 Distemper, Parvovirus, Hepatitis and Kennel cough
Dogs – Leptospirosis
Heartworm injection for dogs
Puppy- A C5 vaccine is available which means your new puppy receives their second C5 vaccine at 10 weeks and can go out to socialise 1 week later
Cats -F3 Herpes virus, Calici virus and Panleucopaenia virus
We have a dedicated Surgery for desexings/ lumps and other surgeries. Should your pet need a dental we offer that service as well.
We use the latest medications/ equipment to ensure your pet has a safe anaesthesia. During the operation they are monitored by another vet or nurse as well as equipment that monitors breathing, heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels. They are kept warm before, during and post operation. If we need to use a drip we have drip pumps that warm the fluid to body temperature. We ensure they go home pain-free by using opioid and pain meds.
Whilst a wide range of general surgery can be done by GP vets, there are many surgical conditions that are best left to Surgical Specialists which will result in a more favourable outcome. Specialist surgeons do these procedures routinely versus GP vets doing it occasionally. We use https://animalspecialists.com.au/ who do the surgery at our clinic.
They do specialist surgery here due to the following
We have the latest medications available.
We have a dedicated sterile theatre.
Our patients are kept warm via warm air and not heat pads.
We have drip pumps to measure the exact volume of fluids needed and a fluid warmer.
We have the latest anaesthetic monitoring which includes Heart rate, temperature, ECG, blood pressure, CO2 and O2 levels. Obviously we have well trained vets and nurses for hands-on monitoring.
We have an inhouse blood laboratory analysis. This means we can get blood results within 3 hours or if urgent within 30 minutes. An added benefit of our inhouse blood tests is the cost is vastly reduced.
Your pet will need you to make that decision for them. It is a very emotional and traumatic event for you but often is a relief for your pet. We can try and guide you on when the time is right to be considering euthanasia.
