Teva Veterinary Clinic  Routine Surgery / OperationWe pride ourselves on our high standards for surgical hygiene and anaesthetic safety. Our theatre is equipped with an isoflurane anaesthetic vapouriser (safe enough to use on birds and hamsters) as well as a breathing monitor and a veterinary assistant is constantly monitoring anaesthetic depth. We can perform most surgeries at our clinic ourselves but will not hesitate to refer you to a specialist surgeon if we feel it is in your pets best interest.Teva Veterinary Clinic  Radiographs (X-rays)X-rays are not only a vital tool for diagnosing fractures but also for evaluation of lung health, heart size, intestinal obstruction, litter size and much more. With our brand new digital CR system you are guarenteed top quality radiographic images.

 

Teva Veterinary Clinic  Weight-loss Centre

We know that those pleading puppy-dog eyes or endless meowing are impossible to resist but excess weight in pets carries the same risks to their health as it does in humans (diabetes, increased arthritic pain, increased strain on the heart, lethargy and premature death). Chat to us about our special Slim-fit weight loss program and low calorie food options.

Teva Veterinary Clinic  Dental Care

Just like humans, pets need regular dental check ups. Good dental hygiene prevents diseases like gingivitis, abcesses and caries that can lead to kidney and heart valve damage. And just in case you thought this was a problem that only affected dogs, 67% of cats seen by the vet have dental disease.

It is also a great first step to basic obedience training. Speak to Jeanne, Helen or Kirsten about enrolling your pup or kitten in classes today!
