Our clinic was purpose built in 1988 so has a very comfortable layout with plenty of room for all our facilities.
Our large waiting area provides lots of space for clients to sit comfortably so cats and dogs are away from each other.
We stock a small range of cat and dog collars, tooth care products, carry cages, toys and treats.
The treatment room, where animals are anaesthetised and non-sterile treatments like dentals and grooms performed. Anaesthetised animals are taken through to the surgery for any sterile surgery required.
We've upgraded our X-ray machine from our small veterinary version to a large ex-hospital machine. It is amazing what a difference there is in the quality of the images it produces - so much more detail is present. It was well worth the upgrade.
Here you can see the large box which contains the workings of the X-ray machine, with our X-ray viewer on the left. We develop the radiographs in our dark room through the door on the right.
Our surgery is used for sterile surgery only, such as speys, abdominal surgery and lump removals. Animals are anaesthetised and prep'd for surgery in the treatment room then moved through to surgery for the procedure. Here Bruce performs abdominal surgery on a dog.

The Clinic - Hospital Kennel Room
The dog cages are designed to fit large dogs comfortably. Here we have an unwell dog on a drip. She has plenty of room to stretch out.
Downstairs we have spacious cages for our boarders. We often have cats for short term stays, particularly if they have medical needs where our close monitoring is appreciated.

Our New IM3 GS deluxe led veterinary dental machine, perfect for cleaning your pets teeth and making them white and shiny again.
We have a state-of-the-art ultrasonic dental descaler. We can now get those teeth even shinier!
Cats need their teeth scaled and polished, just like people do. Unlike people, cats need to be fully anaesthetised for the process! Here is a cat ready to go, with teeth covered in tartar.
Teeth are now clean and shiny, and she won't remember a thing! Don't you love that 'newly cleaned' feeling?
A dog's teeth covered in plaque and tartar that will be removed during scaling. The dog is asleep for the procedure.
Lovely clean teeth after they've been scaled and polished.
Tooter is a cute little dog, "full of character, cheeky, clever & cuddly" according to Kylie. Tooter is a 6 year old Shih Tzu - Jack Russell cross whose left eye needed to be removed earlier this month. Tooter responded really well to surgery. He is a lot more comfortable without his painful eye, and returned to his normal bouncy self once it was removed.
Eddy's a caramel-coloured Bichon Frise cross. He's gorgeous in both colour and cuteness! (Can you guess what he's crossed with?)
Stanley is 20 years old and no longer able to look after his coat like he used to. We normally don't bath cats here unless they're fast asleep under anaesthetic, but at this age its not worth the risk of an anaesthetic just for a bath. We found that while Stanley HATES being combed, he really wasn't too bothered when we shampooed him! Now he looks beautiful again.
Jade's handsome man!

Case getting a check over, he was very comfortable being centre of attention.
Tyson stayed the day with us so he could get his vaccination and check over done.
