Beyond Preventative Care
Beyond the basics, there are many common problems in veterinary medicine that can be diagnosed and treated at home. Good examples of this include: itching and scratching; problems with the eyes, ears or skin; mild to moderate arthritis; minor wounds or lacerations.
During a house call, we can collect samples from your pet for outside laboratory testing. Common tests include Complete Blood Count & Blood Chemistry Panels, Heartworm Testing, Feline Viral Testing, Urinalysis, Fecal Examination, Bacterial and Fungal Cultures, and even Skin Biopsies.
If required, we can arrange personalised referrals to veterinary specialists in ophthalmology, dermatology, cardiology, radiology, orthopaedics, oncology, ultrasound, acupuncture, homeopathy and behavioural therapy to name just a few.
Our pharmacy is well-stocked, allowing us to fill most prescriptions on the spot. Some special medications and prescription diets will need to be ordered, often with same or next day delivery.
If we are advised before a home visit we can deliver premium quality foods of your choice from Eukanuba, Iams, Hills and Royal Canin etc on the day of your house call.
In some cases, we’ll need to refer your pet to a local veterinary hospital to get more intensive/specialised care.
