Our Narre Warren vet clinic offers a complete range of veterinary services for small animals. Our state-of-the-art facilities and equipment along with experienced veterinarians ensure that your dog or cat is in good hands.
You can visit us at our Narre Warren clinic or request a house visit. We also offer vaccinations, microchip installation, euthanasia, parasite prevention treatments, dog and cat dentistry, and veterinary surgical services, including orthopedic surgery. Additional services include emergency vet services, referral services, and pet food sales.
Narre Warren Mobile Vet
Our Narre Warren mobile vet clinic provides the most convenient option for veterinary services. We can visit you and your pet at home instead of at our clinic.
Along with the convenience of using mobile vet services, your pet may find the experience less stressful. Cats especially tend to dislike traveling in a kennel to the vet. The stress of the trip can make it more difficult to assess their behavior compared to a medical assessment performed in your home.
Mobile vet services also eliminate other challenges, such as caring for large dogs or disabled pets that are difficult to transport to a veterinary clinic. You may also find it difficult to schedule veterinary appointments for a house full of dogs or cats.
Many of the services offered at our clinic are available through our mobile vet services, including C5 and F3 vaccinations, microchip installation, dentistry, diagnostic services, and medical services.
Our mobile vet services also cover diagnostic services, including skin tumor evaluations, ear cytology, and urine and blood tests. We can also provide parasite prevention treatments, euthanasia, and referrals to specialists. Our mobile medical services include treatment for a wide range of chronic and acute medical conditions.
Narre Warren Vet Diagnostic Services
Our Narre Warren veterinary clinic uses the latest technologies to deliver safer services, including the use of digital radiology and ultrasound machines for diagnosing medical conditions or assessing injuries. Both technologies avoid the use of radiation and offer real-time imaging.
Ultrasounds are frequently used to aid in the diagnosis or treatment of abdominal pain, pancreatitis, kidney stones, and other abdominal issues. The ultrasound technology provides a nonintrusive option for viewing internal organs, which helps our veterinarians make a fast, accurate diagnosis.
Ultrasounds may be performed at your home during a visit from our mobile vet clinic. However, we also hire veterinary ultrasonography for ultrasound scans performed at our Narre Warren clinic.
Digital radiology is used in place of standard X-ray images whenever possible to offer a safer method for capturing images of bones, soft tissue, and organs. We can use digital radiology to examine fractures and regions of the body, such as the abdomen, chest, or heart.
Unlike standard X-ray technology, digital radiology does not use moderate levels of radiation. The equipment includes digital electronic sensors to instantly generate digital images. The software also allows our veterinarians to manipulate the image to gain a better perspective. They can flip the image, zoom in or out, or rotate it. They can also add notes, measurements, and other annotations.
Narre Warren Medical Veterinary Services
Our Narre Warren medical veterinary services can help your pet live a longer, healthier life. We offer an extensive range of vet services, including checkups and consultations. If you suspect that your dog or cat is unwell, it may be time to schedule a vet appointment.
Our veterinarians ensure that you and your pet are put at ease during the visit. We always provide clear, transport communication to help you make a more informed decision about your pet’s treatment. We can explain any procedure or steps needed to address your concerns and answer any questions that you may have. After reviewing the available options, we can help you develop a treatment plan for your dog or cat that is tailored around your wishes.
We typically recommend pet owners schedule a vet appointment at least once each year for their dog or cat. You should also visit our Narre Warren clinic after adopting a new pet or if your pet is delinquent on their vaccinations.
Booking a vet appointment is also a good idea if your pet is showing signs of illness. If you notice any of the following signs, consider scheduling a visit:
- Loss of appetite
- Drinking more water
- Drinking less water
- Vomiting or dry heaving
- Changes to their stool
- Difficulty breathing
- Frequent crying or whining
- Red eyes or irritated eyes
- Aggressive behavior
Keep in mind that some changes may be due to other factors, such as a change in the weather or the introduction of a new food to their diet. However, if the issue persists for several days, it may indicate something more severe. Contact us to schedule an appointment at our Narre Warren veterinary clinic. We can perform a consultation and follow up to ensure that you receive the support you require.
Narre Warren Pet Dental Treatment
Visit our Narre Warren veterinary clinic for pet dental treatments. Frequent visits can help improve and maintain the oral health of your pet, protecting against gum disease, bad breath, and other dental health issues.
The oral health of your dog or cat is associated with their overall health and well-being. Poor oral health is often an indicator of a higher risk for issues with the heart or kidneys. Unfortunately, most dogs and cats suffer from some degree of periodontal disease or gingivitis.
Gum disease and tooth decay are common problems for pets, especially as they age. However, the signs often go unnoticed without an annual checkup. You may not notice red or swollen gums or an increase in the yellow plaque buildup on their teeth.
Once gum disease or tooth decay begins to spread, it is difficult to fully restore the health of the gums and teeth, which makes early detection vital. Without treatment, the teeth may need to be removed. Your pet may also experience increased discomfort due to chronic inflammation.
Cleaning your pet’s teeth can help reduce the buildup of plaque. We recommend that you try brushing your pet’s teeth using a brush or product designed specifically for dogs or cats. You should also use toothpaste intended for pets, as human toothpaste contains ingredients that may be harmful to dogs and cats. With frequent brushing, your pet may get used to the activity.
Dental treats may also aid in the oral health of your dog when used in moderation. The treats help break down plaque as they chew.
Along with at-home care, you should consider scheduling an annual vet checkup. During the physical, we can inspect your pet’s teeth for any signs of dental disease that may require further treatment.
Narre Warren Emergency Vet
Visit our Narre Warren vet clinic when dealing with a pet emergency. Our clinic is equipped to address most types of emergencies, including seizures, accidents, injuries from fights, and suspected poisoning.
Accidents and injuries are common reasons for emergency vet visits. If your pet is bleeding severely or the bleeding does not stop after attempting to apply pressure, do not wait to receive proper veterinary care. Each minute that you delay could decrease the chance of a satisfactory outcome.
Poisoning is also a frequent cause of pet emergencies. Poisoning often occurs when a pet nibbles on unknown plants. During a stroll through Leonard Avenue Park or the Max Pawsey Reserve, your dog or cat may eat leaves or berries that contain chemicals that are toxic to pets. Pets may also suffer poisoning after ingesting rat bait or snake bait.
Some of the signs of poisoning include:
- Rapid or increased heart rate
- Increased urination
Our Narre Warren vet clinic is ready to handle your emergency. Our services are available during our normal operating hours. However, you do not need to make an appointment. When you arrive, our staff will make every effort to treat your pet as quickly as possible.
Narre Warren Pet Vaccinations
Schedule a visit to our Narre Warren vet clinic to get your dog or cat up to date on their vaccinations. Vaccinations are required and necessary for protection against various diseases.
Dogs typically require a C5 vaccine, which shields against parvo, distemper, hepatitis, and kennel cough. The frequency of the vaccinations can vary depending on a variety of factors. Our veterinarians can address any questions that you have about vaccinations for your dog.
The C5 vaccine is needed for protecting your dog against parvo, which is a contagious virus that impacts the health of the gastrointestinal system. It can be fatal if it is not treated and tends to affect puppies and young dogs more frequently compared to older dogs.
Distemper is another contagious virus covered by the C5 vaccination. Distemper attacks the gastrointestinal, nervous, and respiratory systems and may be fatal without treatment.
Dogs can also contract hepatitis, which is a form of inflammation that affects the liver of your dog. It is infectious and may become fatal without adequate treatment. Signs of hepatitis in dogs include fever and a decreased appetite.
Every puppy should be vaccinated against kennel cough. It is a disease that is typically caused by the spread of bacteria in poorly ventilated spaces, which is why it is frequently found in puppies born in inadequate environments.
The C5 vaccine helps protect your dog from these diseases. The vaccination is typically given at one year of age and again at four years of age and every four years afterward. However, as mentioned, the frequency can vary. Contact us to determine the vaccination schedule for your dog.
Cats require different vaccines. They typically receive the F3 vaccine, which shields against panleukopenia, rhinotracheitis, and calicivirus. Our veterinarians also recommend getting the FIV vaccine to protect your cat against feline AIDS.
The F3 vaccine protects cats from contracting feline panleukopenia (FP), which is a contagious disease that only affects cats. It is more common among young cats between the ages of three and five months. However, older cats can still contract FP.
Rhinotracheitis is a type of herpes that affects cats. It is rarely deadly, but it requires treatment to reduce the symptoms and flare-ups. It can also lead to an increased risk of upper respiratory diseases.
Calicivirus is an upper respiratory infection that frequently affects unvaccinated cats. It often leads to nasal congestion, sneezing, and a watery discharge from the nose or eyes. It may also cause ulcers to form on the tongue and the soft tissue in the mouth.
The F3 vaccine can protect against these diseases. It is typically administered when a cat is between the ages of six and eight weeks of age and after one to three years. Contact us today to schedule the next vaccination for your cat.
Narre Warren Pet Microchipping
Are you worried about your pet getting lost in Narre Warren? Consider adding a microchip. Our Narre Warren veterinary clinic offers microchipping services. We can even install the microchip at your home, instead of our clinic, with our mobile vet services.
An increasing number of pet owners are choosing to microchip their pets. It is a harmless procedure that involves inserting a tiny microchip between the shoulder blades using a tiny needle. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and contains a unique identification number.
The unique identification number allows veterinarians and animal shelters to reunite lost pets with their owners. A microchip scanner is used to determine if a dog or cat has a microchip. If the scanner detects a microchip, it obtains the chip’s unique ID.
When you implant a microchip into your pet, you register your contact information with a secure online microchip registry. Registered professionals can match the ID in the chip with your registration information.
Microchips offer peace of mind and may help return your pet in the event of an emergency. During a fire or a natural disaster, your dog or cat may panic and run off. They may also get lost in the chaos of the situation when trying to evacuate a home. If someone picks up the pet and takes it to the local council, a shelter, or a vet clinic, the microchip ensures that your pet can make its way back to you.
We are fully equipped to provide microchip implantation in your pet. When you use our microchipping service, you also receive a lifetime registration with an online registry.
Narre Warren Surgical Vet
Visit our Narre Warren vet clinic for dependable veterinary medical procedures. We complete both routine and advanced surgical procedures. This may include elective surgeries or medically necessary surgeries that require urgent attention, such as stitching a laceration.
Routine procedures that we frequently perform include lump removals and de-sexing. Advanced procedures tend to include orthopedic surgery, such as cranial cruciate ligament repair, medial patella luxation repair, and fracture repairs. We also perform soft tissue surgical procedures, such as skin flap removal and eye surgery.
Before selecting a surgical procedure, we want you to understand all potential risks and outcomes. We also walk you through the procedure and the recovery process.
Our veterinarians have years of experience and training, ensuring that your pets are in good hands. We always strive to give each pet the best care possible, including during post-care. After the procedure, we offer ongoing support during the postoperative period by following up with phone calls or scheduled visits.
Narre Warren Vet Parasite Protection
Schedule an appointment at our Narre Warren vet clinic to protect your pet against common parasites. Ticks, fleas, and worms can lead to a variety of health complications for dogs and cats. Some of these parasites may also impact your health and the health of your family. To keep your household safe, ensure that your dog or cat receives proper parasite protection.
With dozens of parasite prevention and protection treatments, finding the right option can be a challenge for any pet owner. Our veterinarians can help you select the best treatment based on your preferences. We can explain the pros and cons of each option and administer any applicable treatments.
If you are unsure about parasite protection treatment for your pet, understanding the dangers of external and internal parasites may change your mind.
Dogs and cats are susceptible to external parasites, including fleas and ticks. The Narre Warren area is known for its abundance of parks and green space. During a walk through the Ray Bastin Reserve or the Marco Ciavarella Reserve, your pet may pick up an unwelcome guest. Ticks and fleas may cause discomfort and lead to additional challenges.
Ticks often cause a fever. Your pet may also shake its head frequently or develop a scab at the sight of the tick bite. Fleas tend to cause itching and general irritation. Your pet may become restless. However, the most common sign of fleas is the presence of flea bites on your body.
Internal parasites are more common in cats but can also affect dogs. Examples include lungworms, heartworms, and intestinal worms. Worms often cause decreased appetite, weight loss, and fatigue.
If you want to protect against these threats, schedule a visit at our Narre Warren vet clinic for parasite prevention treatments.
