Clinical Veterinary Services
You and your pet will receive a standard consultation time of 20 minutes (the industry standard is 15 minutes). This time allocation means that your pet receives a thorough health check and there is time to answer any questions you may have. Microchipping is done by AVA accredited Veterinarians. There are a wide range of Vaccinations in stock to prevent those nasty diseases occuring in your pet.
The Veterinarians on the team are highly trained to perform all the general surgery such as desexings, lump removals, stitch-ups, removal of intestinal foreign bodies and even bladder stones, to name a few. There are no Veterianrians with less than 10 years of surgical experience, so your pet is in very safe hands. The more complicated and specialised Orthopaedic Surgery including fractures and knee reconstructions is performed by our visiting Specialist, so you can have complete peace of mind that your pet will receive the highest standards of surgical care and expertise.
The anaesthetic your pet will receive is the safest on the Veterinary market – it is a human grade anaesthetic. Again, giving you peace of mind that your pet is receiving the Gold Standard in Veterinary Care.
There is a well-equipped laboratory on the premises which enables a vast array of blood and urine tests to be performed on your pet, so you can relax, knowing a diagnosis will be reached faster, facilitating your pets’ treatment and recovery. It also means blood testing prior to anaesthesia as well as ‘annual wellness’ and ‘senior’ profiles can be performed quickly and accurately.
The modern digital Xray system on site means your pet will quickly receive high quality, digital images, allowing fast diagnosis and an earlier start to treatment and recovery. We also have a state of the art digital dental Xray system, which means we can dignose an treat painful dental conditions by being able to ‘see below the gum line’.
The dental facilities at Veterinary Happiness are ‘state of the art’, meaning that even the worst cases of dental disease can be effectively treated. Most pets require attention to their teeth during their life. Plaque, tartar and gum disease are common and cause foul-smelling breath, pain and the potential for abscesses in the mouth and infection elsewhere in the body. We advise on preventative dental care from the puppy and kitten stage upward, with the goal of keeping your pets’ teeth and gums healthy.
Dogs are hospitalised in a secure ward, in a temperature controlled environment on soft fluffy beds and are placed on heating pads after surgery to ensure they are warm and comfortable. Calming, stress-reducing pheromones are diffused in the ward to help make your pets stay with us as comfortable and stress free as possible.
Cats have their own ward, away from dogs with stress-relieving pheromones diffused into the atmosphere constantly. They too have soft fluffy beds and heat pads to make recovery from procedures as comfortable as possible.
Please feel free to bring in anything your pet may like such as a favourite toy or blanket while in hospital under our care, again to make their stay as pleasant as possible.
