Surgery and Imaging

Our goal is the best vet care for cats and dogs. We have modern surgical theatres at our six small animal locations and we routinely perform desexings (castrations / speys) of cats, dogs and rabbits. Our imaging capabilities include modern digital X-ray and Ultrasonography. PennHIP XRays may be done in-house by our accredited veterinarian. We have a very experienced team of veterinary surgeons who perform complicated procedures such as knee reconstructions (cruciate disease), cancer removal (soft tissue surgery) and bone fracture repair (orthopaedic surgery) with very high success rates.

Vaccinations and Annual Health Checks

Our veterinarians are well versed in the latest recommendations and programs for protecting your pet’s health. We stock a wide range of vaccinations for cats and dogs including canine cough, parvovirus, distemper and infectious hepatitis for dogs and viral rhinotracheitis (FVR) and calcivirus (FCV) for cats. Most importantly we’ll give your pets a thorough veterinary examination and health check to ensure they are in tip top condition.
