VACCINATIONS

Vaccinations are critical in preventing canine distemper, parvovirus, bordetella, and other diseases in dogs and feline leukemia, feline distemper, and upper respiratory infections in cats.

Keeping up to date is key to ensuring your pet lives a full and happy life. Our dedicated team of highly experienced veterinarians complete a full health check of each animal we see, ensuring the appropriate vaccine and advice is given.

MICROCHIPPING

In Queensland all cats and dogs between 8 and 12 weeks of age must be implanted with a microchip. Responsibility for microchipping is with the person selling or giving away the animal. The sale, implanting and tracking of microchips is regulated in Queensland. If you are unsure if your pet is microchipped, we can scan your animal and check the details for you.

REPRODUCTION

Reproduction can be a complicated process that raises lots of questions. Our dedicated team offer end to end reproduction including in house progesterone testing, artificial insemination, surgical artificial insemination and caesareans.

Our progesterone testing is conducted in house and results are available within half an hour. We offer progesterone testing for pre mating and pre whelping or as some call it, reserve progesterone.

If you have any questions about the reproduction process, please do not hesitate to get our team a call. We would be happy to help with any questions.

DENTAL CARE

Dental care for pets including guinea pigs is vital for the animal’s overall health, ensuring they live and a long and pain free life. Dental disease in pets does not only affect the teeth and gums but can also damage the kidney’s, heart and respiratory systems, if left untreated. Pets are good at hiding teeth pain! We offer free dental checks in order to identify problems such as missing or broken teeth, inflammation, tumours, and the build up of tartar and plaque.

If your pet does require a dental surgery, we offer state of the art dental xrays to gain a better picture and understanding of the depth of dental work required. Dental xrays are completed under anesthetic.

Pet dental grades are typically graded between Grade 1 – Grade 4:

GRADE 1:

Soft plaque has built up on the surface of the teeth. A small amount of tartar is also present. Tartar was formed when mineral deposits from saliva precipitated in plaque. Bacteria have grown, multiplied and invaded the gum tissues around the tooth causing early gingivitis, and red, inflamed gums.

GRADE 2:

Moderate tartar build up is present. It has acted as a wedge, pushing the gums away from the teeth, causing food, bacteria, and debris to accumulate there. The gums are red, swollen, and painful and bleed when touched. At this stage, proper dental care is crucial to reverse the progress of dental disease.

GRADE 3:

Plaque and tartar formation is heavy. Pockets of bacteria and debris have accumulated to form further pockets of infection along the teeth. The infection has destroyed tissues around the teeth that hold them in place, and some have become loose. The gums appear bright red and bleed freely

GRADE 4:

Severe tartar formation and gum disease is present. Toxic debris and inflammation have caused extensive tissue death. Roots are infected, abscessed, and rotten. The thin wall of bone surrounding teeth has deteriorated, and many teeth are loose. Bacteria may be spreading through the entire body in the bloodstream, potentially causing harm to vital organs. Pain can also be severe at this stage.
