Veterinary Consultations

Our consultations are customized to any concerns about healthcare, behavioural advice, education and more. The more your vet knows, the more we can support in you in providing your pet with a long, happy life. Bring in medical history you have of your pet. A full physical exam will involve a nose to tail check, personalized to your concerns.

We believe 6-monthly checks are the best way for early detection and better treatment of any condition. Many health issues change rapidly over 6 months = 3 years in pet years!
