The following is a comprehensive list of our services. It gives you an insight into the veterinary services we provide for the diagnosis and treatment of your pet.

Accident & Emergency Care
Should you need us we provide a 24/7 pet emergency service. If you need this service call either one of our practices to get the vet on calls number.
For some procedures we will use a local anesthetic such a x-rays, drawing blood etc. For a general anesthetic, your animal should arrive in the morning of the procedure. This will allow your pet to settle into the hospital, and permit the examination of the animal before undergoing the anesthetic. We ask that your pet to be not fed after 6 pm the night before the procedure to reduce the risk of regurgitation.

We carry out a complete bood count (CBC). this will give us information on hydration status, anemia, infection, the blood’s clotting ability and the ability of the immune system to respond. This test is essential for pets with fevers, vomiting, diarrhea, weakness, pale gums, or loss of appetite.
