Blood tests are an important tool we use to diagnose and monitor many health conditions. They help detect diseases early on while they are still treatable.

The more you understand why your pet behaves the way it does, the easier it will becomes for you to train your pet and make them a happy and well behaved member of your family. Our vets are trained in assessing behavioural problems and can advise the most appropriate treatment.
Our team of expert nurses work closely with our vets to offer consultations to cover your pet care needs and can answer any queries or specific concerns you may have about your pet’s health. Topics we often cover in our consultations can include preventative care, surgery, behaviour, nutrition and other matters depending on your individual pet’s needs. Nurses are able to perform nail clippings, dental checks and more!
When it comes to dental health, pets require treatment just as humans do. Prevention is better than cure!
Tooth and gum problems in pets
Tooth, gum pain and dental disease can be as severe in pets as it is in humans, but often goes unnoticed. It can lead to infection that has been linked with the development of kidney and heart disease.
Bad breath is one of the most common signs of pet dental disease. Most pets will continue eating regardless of a severe infection and pain. This is why it’s so important to bring your pet into the clinic for regular check-ups. Nurse dental checks are complimentary because we’re always here to help!
Teeth cleaning services
We recommend a professional dental scale and polish treatment every 6-12 months for pets, even with good home care. A general anesthetic is required for this.
Dental diets are specially formulated dry food which is designed to remove plaque as your pet eats. Some also contain toothpaste-like ingredients to fight plaque.
Our dental facilities
Just like at your dentist, we have state of the art equipment and everything your pet needs to keep their pearly whites nice and healthy! Our clinic has a dedicated dental area with ultrasonic cleaner and polisher along with specialised animal dental equipment, including a drill.
It is important to not only treat illness but to also prevent future illness for your pet. Preventative care can help achieve and maintain a high level of general health and well-being for your pet.
Fleas & Intestinal Worms
Fleas and intestinal worms are unwelcome parasites, which can cause both animal and human disease. Keeping your pet’s parasite control up-to-date is the best way to protect them and your family.
While fleas may prefer to bite our pets, they are often more than happy to multiply in houses and bite us too! In fact, the flea will spend only a small part of its life-cycle on your pet and more in your home. This is why it is best to treat your home, as well as your pet, when an infestation occurs.
Worms affect the health of your pet, but can also transmit to people, especially young children. Worms can cause serious and permanent illness in humans. It is essential to commence a worm control program from the moment you take home your new pet.
Heartworm is a worm that lives within the dog’s heart and is spread by mosquitoes.It is now found in all parts of Australia. Heartworm is potentially fatal and can be difficult to treat. A heartworm prevention program should be initiated from the time of your pet’s first vaccination.
Microchipping is one of the best ways of identifying your pet, particularly when they are lost or stolen. We can microchip your new pet at any age and can also help you with council registration forms. If pets are ever taken to a shelter they will be routinely scanned for a microchip. The shelter will then call you directly, to ensure your pet is back with you as soon as possible.
We offer the latest in diagnostic imaging technologies which includes X-ray and Ultrasound.
We utilise the benefits of Ultrasound scanning technology. This is a pain free procedure that produces images of the body to allow our vets to have a closer look into the health of your beloved pet.
X-rays are not only for broken bones! We often perform x-rays to screen the heart and lungs for disease, while x-rays of the abdomen can diagnose ingestion of foreign objects and give us valuable information about the size and shape of abdominal organs.
