The metered anaesthetic machine uses isoflurothane gas & incorporates oxygen, heart rate & breathing monitors. Doppler (or blood pressure) monitoring is also available when needed.

An ultrasonic dental scaler and polishing unit is housed in the surgery and is used routinely for providing companion animal dental services.

 Companion Animal Facilities

 

Companion Animal FacilitiesThe consultation rooms are supported by a well stocked pharmacy, allowing most animal prescription needs to be met immediately.

There is a kennel area which is temperature controlled for comfort, and an isolation ward for infectious cases.

There is also a radiograph developing room and a dark room for ultraviolet ringworm testing.

A blood chemistry analyzer is housed in the small animal area which allows for same day in-house blood testing. This is routinely used for pre-anaesthetic blood testing & monitoring hospital cases.

 Large Animal Facilities

 

Large Animal FacilitiesThe majority of our farm animal work is performed off-site at client properties. However, the clinic is situated adjacent to a grassy paddock which is used frequently for horse examination, radiography and dentistry, along with housing the occasional sick goat or sheep.

We have a mobile scanner, endoscope and radiography machine, so equine diagnostic work can be performed out in the field. We also have a dedicated portable “Heads Up” pregnancy scanner for use in cattle pregnancy scanning.
