Small Animal Services
Desexing, the surgical procedure to make an animal incapable of breeding, is the most common surgery performed at our veterinary hospital. This is the best way to reduce the numbers of unwanted litters of puppies and kittens. We recommend desexing for all pets where owners are not wanting to breed. This eliminates unwanted offspring but also makes life easier to manage in the urban environment.
Desexing is a day surgery procedure – pets are ready to go home a few hours after their surgery with detailed advice on how to properly care for your pet at home in the days following surgery. We highly recommend preanaesthetic blood testing, intravenous fluids and additional pain relief for the safest surgical process and recovery.
All animals are treated with kindness and compassion, waking up with heat pads and warm blankets.
We offer free dental checks in August for Dental Month!
Dental hygiene plays in integral part in overall health in our pets. An annual scale and clean is an easy process to great dental hygiene. Please ring us on (02) 6361 8388 to book an appointment
Dental health is very important in your pet. You can examine your dog’s teeth at home and care for them using some simple steps.
Microchipping is the best way of ensuring a lost pet finds it way home safely. Microchipping is a simple procedure often done at the time of first vaccinations or desexing. It is very important to update any change of owner details – an incorrect contact phone number makes the chip useless. We love being able to reunite lost pets and their owners quickly – microchips make this simple.
