Preventative Health Care
Our approach to the care of your pet is preventative health care to ensure they remain in excellent health.
We provide services such as vaccinations, heartworm testing, microchips and desexing, as well as a wide selection of the best available health care products.
- Annual Health Checks enable us to pick up early signs of disease and treat it before it becomes an issue for your pet.
- Vaccinations for dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets protect your pet against potentially fatal viral and bacterial diseases and are given as part of your pet’s annual health check.
- Heartworm protection – As part of your pet’s annual health check, we can administer an annual heartworm injection, saving you time and ensuring your pet is fully protected all year round.
- Flea/tick control and worming – our staff’s expertise ensures you receive the best products backed by the most up to date advice, so your pet has the best possible protection.
- Microchipping is the first step in registering your pet and enables their safe return if they become lost.
Medical and Surgical Services
Management of all medical problems including skin diseases, allergies, ear infections, gastrointestinal problems (vomiting and diarrhoea) and endocrine disorders (eg. diabetes, adrenal and thyroid disorders) can be provided for your pet.

If problems do occur, rest assured our expertise and the best available equipment will bring your pet back to good health quickly.

We are fully equipped with ultrasonic scalers, high-speed polishers and cutting tools to provide the best possible dental services for your pet.

Other services we offer…
Our specially trained animal behaviourists run small select classes which enable your puppy to develop socially in a safe, secure environment. You will receive guidance on all aspects of basic obedience (including stress-free toilet training) and the support of other “new parents”. This is an excellent way to learn with your new puppy and develop friendships with like-minded people.
To help take the worry out of your holidays, we can care for all your cat’s health needs at our Camden cattery. During their stay your cats will be pampered and petted by our nurses, allowing you to enjoy your holiday knowing they remain healthy, safe and content.
We can provide advice on a variety of problems including biting, aggression, barking, fears and phobias (eg. thunderstorms), destructive behaviour, urine marking and house-training.
We can tailor a diet to your pet’s specific needs and lifestyle, whether they have a medical condition (such as pregnancy, allergies, kidney and bladder problems) or you just want to ensure they remain fit and healthy during each stage of their life.
We recommend your investment in pet insurance, particularly when purchasing a new puppy or kitten. The small annual premium allows you to proceed with whatever treatment your pet needs without having to worry about the cost. Pet insurance will refund 80% of your veterinary bills or 100%. Some funds will reimburse up to $150 annually for simply providing routine wellness care for your pet including vaccinations, heartworm and flea prevention.
Client education is a very important aspect of our service. After all, it is ultimately you, the pet’s owner, that provides for the health care needs of your pet. We do this both verbally in our consultations and over the phone. We provide numerous free information sheets on a variety of topics, most of these written by our own veterinarians. This website also contains a great deal of valuable information about pets and how best to care for them. Many of our information sheets are also available on the website.
