Dentistry

See price list

Dental health is vitally important to todays very long lived pets, and we encourage regular dental checkups as part of our once a year general checkup. Teeth that are allowed to to accumulate plaque, dental calculus and erosions become damaged, and can inflame the surrounding tissue. We have state of the art IM3 ultrasonic scaler and drill set.

Surgery

surgery is performed onsite every weekday. Deseings, lapatoromies, eye surgeries abscesses fight wounds are the most common. More advanced surgeries including caesarians, cancer removal are also frequently performed.

Anaesthetics

Anaesthetics are a field on increasing technological advances. Our patients are monitored continuously during anaesthesia, using apnoea monitors, and the Cardell monitor which monitors ecg, et and ins CO2,  respiration, temperature, blood pressure, oxygen tension and heart rate continuously throughout. Pre-anaesthetic blood profiles can be done prior to surgery and iv fluids administered throughout if required. All pets are given pre-anaesthetic pain relief routinely.

In house Laboratory

Laboratory work is done on site for rapid results, including parvovirus, canine pancreatic lipase, giradia, heartworm and fiv testing. We have the IDEXX suite for rapid while you wait haematology and biochemistry. Some blood tests are sent to outside laboratories where complimentary specialist input is given. 

Rabbits and rodents

Rabbits and rodents are frequently seen with castration, ovariohiohysterectomies and dental work now routine for these species.

Animal Reproduction Services

Reproduction is a field where the ultrasound is frequently used to check for pregnancy diagnosis and to check the viability of foetuses.

Radiology

Radiology can be done in house and is a quick way to confirm a diagnosis. We have digital radiography for rapid and easily transferrable results.

Ultrasound

Ultrasound is great for an immediate non-invasive way to determine- are those puppies still alive, is that fluid or a tumour? On site ultrasound is offered for routine cases- We can get a specialist in for more complex cases.

Blood pressure monitoring

Blood pressure monitoring is an essential tool in feline medicine. As out feline friends get older and slip into renal insufficiency blood pressure monitoring is essential in preventing high blood pressure, and the retinal detachments, bleeds and cerebrovascular accidents that go with it. We have both the doppler and Cardell methods.

Opthalmology

Opthalmology is a crucial part of pet care and a very frequent reason for patients to present. We are able to monitor intraocular pressure for pets with inflamed eyes, in order to prevent glaucoma, and in glaucoma management. We have extra instrumentation for monitoring IOP.

Genetic testing

Genetic testing is now being done for inherited diseases, which along with radiology for screening elbows and hips is a wonderful way to eliminate some of the worst breed defects of the past eg hip dysplasia, elbow dysplasia, progressive retinal atrophy, collie eye abnormality.
