Surgery & Anaesthesia
Our state-of-the-art, boutique veterinary hospital is fitted with full professional surgical facilities and capabilities for anaesthesia for a wide range of procedures. Our team is very experienced in caring for animals under anaesthesia; we have well-trained staff and high quality, advanced monitoring equipment to optimize the safety for our patients. We can perform a wide range of surgical procedures within our hospital.
Emergency, critical care & hospitalisation
In the event of an emergency or major accident or illness we have facilities and equipment to deal with almost any emergency situation. For patients requiring hospitalisation we have a fully equipped hospital to care for them. Should your pet require advanced specialist care or overnight intensive monitoring we can arrange for this to occur.
Skin and ear problems are probably the most common problems we are presented with, and they are often the most frustrating for owners. We can diagnose and help manage dermatological problems offering the latest in skin therapies and tests so that we can keep our patient’s symptoms as controlled as possible.
There are big behaviour problems, and then the more niggling issues. Dogs and cats can suffer from issues like anxiety, fear, boredom and aggression. They can also be a bit cheeky and misbehaved and just need some extra help with training. Pets can also commonly exhibit behavioural changes as a response to illness or pain. We are here to help pinpoint the primary cause of any such behaviours and prescribe behavioural modifications and treatments where necessary. We also have access to other resources such as trainers, special programs and specialists if required. Our aim is to help your best friend have the best life!
Cancer is just as prevalent in pets as it is in people. Advanced diagnostics and improved standards of care have allowed us to diagnose and treat pet cancers much more readily and effectively. We can guide you through the tests and the most appropriate treatment options. In many cases, if indicated, we can perform chemotherapy at our hospital to improve the quality of life of your loved pet.
We have an extensive in-house pharmacy stocking quality medications to best treat your pet. We are able to special order any additional medications and products your pet requires, or provide a script for the human pharmacy if required. We also stock special foods for sick patients .
Dental disease affects our pets just as much as it does is, and it is equally as important that we prevent and treat dental disease for our pets too. There are proven ‘knock-on’ effects of poor dental health on organ function (including heart and liver), not to mention the damage it does in the mouth and jaw bones. Our hospital has a gold standard, medical grade dental machine with the capacity for performing quality prophylactic dental scale and polishes, simple extractions, complex extractions and major dentals. We can also treat other conditions such as tooth root abscesses, gum trauma, etc.
Radiology (X-ray) & Ultrasound
Our clinic has a BRAND NEW state of the art X-Ray system so we can produce high quality detailed radiography images to maximise diagnostic ability. We are also lucky enough to have access to internal medicine specialists and a cardiologist who can perform specialist ultrasounds at our clinic if required. Quality diagnostic imaging is so important for good decision making for your pet’s treatment.
Pathology & diagnostic testing
Don’t wait for days for test results! The Beaches Vet has an on-site laboratory, that can process samples on the day you visit, and in many cases even whilst you wait. We have a brand new blood testing machine which can run many comprehensive blood tests. We can also perform many urine tests, skin tests and lump checks in-house, and if required we can send samples for additional or more advanced tests to a highly skilled veterinary pathologist/external laboratory.
