We use ultrasound regularly. Ultrasound can be used to detect tumours, pregnancy, and heart abnormalities. We can use it for needle guided biopsies and a variety of other conditions.
Surgery gives us the ability to fix a problem. We can cut out a cancer, repair a broken leg or cruciate ligament, or stope eyelashes rubbing on an eye. Surgery fixes problems that other treatment options can’t. Please discuss with us what your pet needs. We operate Monday to Friday and in emergencies whenever needed. Kay has knowledge and experience to operate on your pet safely and effectively to get the best outcome for you and your pet. Kay does keyhole surgery and secret sewing so your pet recovers faster.
We use state of the art anaesthetic machine and monitor so that we can monitor every step of the anaesthesia by getting regular recordings of your pet’s vital signs, to ensure the correct depth of anaesthesia to avoid anaesthetic related complications. We back our machine up with very experienced staff who are also monitoring your pet. When your pet is in recovery, a dedicated nurse will stay with them until they are awake from anaesthetic, so that they can be monitored until they are safely sitting up and have adequate pain relief.
Our treatment does not stop with surgery, we provide extensive rehabilitation services and information to aid in your pets recovery.
We do acupuncture, pressure point therapy, hot and cold packs, deep tissue laser treatment, photonic light therapy, and physical therapy using specialised equipment. We will also use massage and passive range of movement to get those joints walking well again.
