This is a very important time in your pet’s life, and ensuring that it gets the best diet and the right training will prepare you for a long and happy relationship. Pop in with your pet, and we’ll check health basics while giving you any advice you need. Just like you, we want your pet to have a wonderful life.
We know that your concern for your pup extends beyond the healthcare basics. You want a happy, friendly, well-adjusted dog. Puppy training classes will teach you a lot about your pup, and he’ll learn a lot about his relationship with you too. Obedience training helps keep your puppy from developing bad habits. And early socialization teaches your dog to behave with animals in the future. So join us! Training days are about to become you and your pup’s favourite ones.
Ensuring that all vaccinations are up to date is one of the most important things you can do for your pet’s health. As a pet owner, you want your pet to enjoy superb health, and diet, exercise and vaccinations are the basics you need to achieve that. We’ll explain which vaccinations are needed and how often your pets will need a top-up. Although vaccinations may not prevent all the illnesses your pet may get, they will certainly protect pets from some of the nastiest diseases that commonly affect cats and dogs.
You take good care of your pets, and you’d be terribly upset if they were to become lost. However, a thunderstorm or chance-escape can cause a pet to flee in panic, forgetting the way home. With microchipping, you can be sure that if your pet is found, his or her home will be traceable. Stand the best possible chance of recovering your pet if he or she gets lost. The microchipping procedure is simple, safe, and non-invasive.
Being over or underweight and over or undernourished shortens your pet’s life and affects its overall health. Let us advise you regarding the best diet for your pet. Kittens and puppies need extra nutrition to grow and develop. Young, active pets need foods that will match their energy-levels, and seniors need a diet that’s kind to the digestive system and that won’t lead to weight gain. Certain breeds also have unique dietary requirements. We’ll help you to find the right balanced diet for your pet.
A few decades ago, very few people even thought about brushing pets’ teeth, but now we know that they need much the same dental care as we do. Apart from checking your pet’s teeth for signs of trouble and potentially painful infections and decay, we’ll be glad to give you our best tips and advice on oral hygiene for pets. Bring your pet for regular dental checks to prevent discomfort and health problems related to tooth decay or gum disease.
SURGERY AND OTHER VETERINARY SPECIALISTS
Although certain surgeries are routine to us, we understand that they’re a big deal to loving pet owners – and their pets will certainly know that something is afoot. Apart from using the best surgical techniques available, we’ll help to keep your pet comfortable, calm and reassured, and as soon as he or she is ready to be released into your care, we’ll do so. We’ll give you good advice on how to handle recovery, and you may be sure that the surgery will benefit your pets in the long run.
FULL PATHOLOGY SERVICES
When your pet is unwell, it may be necessary to consult pathology labs in order to be sure of an accurate diagnosis so that we can provide effective treatment. Our strong relationship with leading pathology labs helps us to get those test results fast. We understand that time is of the essence, and rapid diagnosis allows us to take prompt action.
No matter what kind of pet you have, you’ll be inclined to worry about finding really good pet boarding facilities when you need to leave home for a few days. We can help, and with a vet on the premises, you can be sure that they’ll be in the best possible health on your return. Visit us or call us and discover why so many locals are choosing our pet boarding service when they need to go away.
Some pets have coats that need a lot of care. It may not even be a matter of not having the time to do it yourself; or specialized grooming is better for certain breeds. We have also seen instances where dogs who misbehave when groomed by owners submit perfectly happily to the attentions of a professional dog groomer! Alternatively, ask us about the grooming routine you should follow for your particular pet.
We will never advise you to make your pet undergo a routine surgery that won’t benefit him or her in the long run. Simple surgeries like spaying and neutering will make your pets easier to live with and prevent diseases that could otherwise affect them later in life. We’ll take good care of your pet, limiting stress and providing reassurance. When you collect your animal, we’ll explain how you should care for it for a rapid recovery.
