We ensure that your pet receives the best possible treatment and care.
The Practice has an operating theatre which is used for all our sterile procedures. We also use up-to-date anaesthetics as well as premediates. The Operating Theatre is equipped with a modern Isoflo anaesthetic machine, which allows for smooth and safe anaesthetic and a quick recovery period. Analgesics for pain relief are used routinely and are usually included in the operation fee. We also have available a Respiratory Monitor.
Dental disease is one of the most common diseases seen in our pets. We have a dental scaler which is used to remove the plaque and tartar that accumulates on your pet's teeth. A polisher is then used to delay the recurrence of plaque build-up. We also have a dental drill, which is used to assist with the extraction of teeth. Our Dental Care machine is one of the most modern available.
Veterinary ultrasound machines are just like the ones used by human doctors. As its name suggests, ultrasound is a form of sound. Just as sound waves can pass through solid objects, ultrasound can pass through the skin into your dog's body. The sound waves are directed through the area your vet wants to look at and some of them are reflected back like an echo, which is displayed as an image on a computer monitor.
Whereas an X-ray will show us the shape of the heart, whether there is enlargement, growths etc., a ECG goes further by actually telling us about the various chambers of the heart and how they are functioning in relation to each other. It does this by measuring electrical impulses at various points across the heart. It is a very non-invasive procedure, thus, no sedation is usually required.
We run many of our blood tests on the premises. This gives us quick information on the various components of blood (e.g. Red and white blood cells, etc.) as well as information about different body organs and their level of function.
