Common Conditions We Treat
We often see cats and dogs with all sorts of ailments and conditions. Our after hours vet clinic is fully equipped and prepared to deal with the following:
- Vomiting and diarrhoea – this is the most common condition that we treat. We can provide intravenous (IV) fluid drips and medications to help your dog or cat rehydrate and recover from their gastroenteritis.
- Pain – if your pet is in pain we can help to provide analgesia (pain relief), diagnose the injury and then provide appropriate treatment. We often see broken, fractured and sprained limbs.
- Trauma – we treat severe injuries from motor vehicle accidents, fights with other animals and high rise falls for example.
- Poisoning – common intoxications include chocolate, rat bait, snail bait, garlic, onions, paracetamol, aspirin and other human medications. While it is best to keep your animal away from these items if they ingest or are exposed to toxins we are able to provide decontamination (removal of the toxin) if presented in time or treatment if they are already affected by the toxin.
- Paralysis – from tick bite, spinal injuries and other conditions.
- Ligament Injuries – difficulty walking, pain or lameness.
- Urinary Issues – difficulty or inability to urinate
We treat the above conditions on a regular basis, and our team of professional staff are available to treat your pet and help it on its way to recovery as soon as possible.
