Services

Platelet Rich Plasma Transfusion – now available at The Glens Veterinary Hospital

  • Platelet rich plasma (PRP) utilizes part of the body’s natural inflammatory process to accelerate and enhance healing. PRP is an autologous blood derivative, which means it is a blood product from a specific pet and then administered back to that same individual.
  • Benefits of treament: Used for musculoskeletal pain and inflammation to reduce the intensity and duration of pain and to accelerate healing.
  • Feel free to contact us for more details on how it works and the cost involved.

Small Animal Medicine & Surgery

  • The basis of good quality veterinary medicine and surgery is diagnosis. Once an accurate diagnosis has been made, the best treatment course for your pet becomes more obvious and successful.

  • Routine procedures and surgeries are performed by The Glens Veterinary Hospitals qualified veterinarians.

Diagnostic Imaging

Radiography (x-rays):

  • our state of the art digital radiography equipment provides a much clearer image quality and makes correct diagnosis easier.

Ultrasonography :

  • this ultrasound or sonar allows our veterinarians to visualise your dog or cats internal organs painlessly.

Endoscopy :

  • the veterinarian uses a fibre optic flexible tube, which he has inserted orally or rectally into your pet, to directly visualize structures in your pets oesophagus, stomach, intestines or airways.

Comprehensive Dental Care 

  • 70% or our family pets over 3 years old have evidence of dental disease.
  • Early tartar formation can quickly progress to periodontal disease with erosion of tooth roots and the consequent loss of your dog or cats teeth.
  • Perhaps the most important aspect of dental disease however is the absorption of the toxins and bacteria in the mouth due to dental disease into the rich network of blood vessels in the gums and hence the spread of these bacterial and toxins to the other organs in your dog or cats body.
  • Dental disease is often responsible for the spreading of infections to other parts of your pets body e.g. airways, heart and especially the filtration organs of your animal e.g. the liver and kidneys.
  • The Glens Veterinary Hospital has the correct and comprehensive dental equipment to enable a thorough cleaning, descaling and polishing of your family pets’ teeth.
  • Unfortunately in spite of routine oral health care some of our animals still need regular dental work.

This allows our veterinarians to detect any anaesthetic abnormalities quickly and proactive steps can be taken immediately before a problem occurs.
  • The Glens Veterinary Hospital utilizes comprehensive pain management protocols routinely on all animals in the clinic for operations to ensure operative and post-operative discomfort is minimized.
  • Our veterinarians recommend pre anaesthetic blood tests for all procedures requiring anaesthetics especially our geriatric or older pets and those animals that may be compromised for any reason.
