As part of The Pet Doctors mission to give our patients the best care possible, we recognise the value of performing annual health checks to help diagnose and address problems before they become life-threatening.
Cats in the wild are apex predators and have an amazing set of teeth to match their hunting prowess. We recognise that our domestic cats teeth need to be kept in top condition because tooth and gum disease severely impacts their health and quality of life. Long-term control and prevention of dental disease requires simple but regular home care and periodic professional care by The Pet Doctors.
Fleas are most often seen during the warmer months but as we keep our homes nice and warm throughout winter, we see fleas all year round. Only a small part of the adult flea population actually lives on your pet.
Worming is one of the first health care issues pet owners need to address as pups and kittens are the most susceptible. As their name suggests, intestinal worms are parasites that live inside your pet’s intestines.
Our hospital is fully equipped to take radiographs (often called X-rays) of your pet. Our veterinarians will discuss your pet’s case and conduct a thorough physical examination to determine if your pet requires radiographs.
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under your pet’s skin. It can be done during a normal consultation. The microchip is embedded with a code unique to your pet and is the most effective form of permanent identification.
