Keeping your pet healthy is important to us.

We offer a wide range of services and strive to provide the best professional care to help your pets live longer, healthier  and happier lives.

Wellness Exams

Whether your pet is a youngster, a “senior citizen,” or any age in between, wellness examinations provide an excellent opportunity for us to conduct a thorough physical examination and develop a health profile for your pet. This information will help us identify medical problems and any other issues that can affect your pet’s health and quality of life.If your pet seems healthy, a wellness examination is a good opportunity to note any changes, such as weight gain or loss or other subtle changes that may not be evident at home.This is also an excellent time for us to discuss any routine diagnostic testing that may benefit your pet or to recommend any vaccinations that may be due.



 



Vaccinations

Puppies and kittens are born with a very limited immune system. Immediately after birth most will receive some temporary immunity to viruses and bacteria from their mother's milk. This immunity will last for 6 to 14 weeks before it wanes and the puppy's or kitten's immune system needs to take over.  In order to provide your pet with protection from a number of serious and potentially fatal diseases, we recommend beginning vaccinations at 6 to 8 weeks of age. Booster or repeat vaccinations will be required to ensure their immune system has responded to the vaccinations and produced a lasting immune response.

We vaccinate for a number of different diseases. We feel very strongly that all puppies and kittens should receive these vaccinations as many of these diseases are quite common and easily preventable with appropriate vaccination.  Adult vaccination schedules are determined by a discussion between you and the veterinarian about the lifestyle of your pet and then making a decision about what vaccines are required.  

 

Surgery

We are equipped to perform soft tissue surgeries, such as emergency laceration suturing, routine spays and neuters, tumor removals, est.Our patients are monitored before, during and after surgery by our trained, experienced and compassionate team members. Fluid therapy and pain management are provided for all surgical patients to keep your beloved pet hydrated and comfortable.

Spay & Neuter

Spay/neuter surgery removes reproductive organs, so cats and dogs can not have offspring. This procedure is performed under general anaesthesia, and animals usually return to normal activity within 24 to 72 hours. Contrary to popular myth, spay/neuter surgery does not spoil a pet's personality, nor does it make dogs and cats fat and lazy. In fact, spay/neuter surgery has health and behavioural benefits

Microchipping

A microchip implant is about the size of a  grain of rice and is placed under the skin of your pet. Microchipping is a permanent way of identification which is used worldwide. Veterinarians routinely look for microchips to return lost pets quickly to their owners.



 

Dentistry

Maintaining good dental health is vital to the overall well being of your pet. Every animal, from the young puppy to the geriatric cat deserves the best dental care. We perform different dental procedures- from routine dental prophylaxis to multiple complicated extractions.After these procedures, we recommend ongoing  home care to help maintain good oral hygine and prevent your pet from developing periodontal diseases in future.

 

Radiology (x-rays)

Radiology (x-rays) is routinely used to provide valuable information about a pet’s bones, gastrointestinal tract (stomach, intestines, colon), respiratory tract (lungs), heart, and genitourinary system (bladder, prostate). It can be an important tool in diagnosing various health problems and diseases.

 


Emergency Care

During our regular hours, we diagnose and treat pet emergencies such as automobile trauma, bite wounds, poisonings, vomiting and diarrhea, seizures and various other medical and surgical emergencies. Even though we are not a 24 hour facility, we stabilize our emergency cases and refer them to a specialized hospital if conditions require intensive care and constant monitioring after hours.
