What to expect

In your search for a veterinary facility, we believe you should expect high quality care as well as great service. Our goal has been to assemble a veterinary health care team committed to providing exceptional client service and veterinary health care. Our commitment to you is to continue to offer our world class service and a state of the art veterinary facility.

 

Your pet’s annual vet check-up will include a complete physical examination, with a thorough evaluation of your pet’s general health including eyes, ears, teeth, lungs, heart, abdomen, skin and coat. Because even the most cooperative pet may not readily go-along with a tooth and gum brushing, an annual cleaning by your veterinarian maybe in order. Like you, your pet can lose their teeth due to decay and neglect. It’s a good idea to keep an accurate medical diary not only of the procedures and vaccinations your pet receives at the vet, but also to note things like your pet’s elimination habits and any physical changes or unusual occurrences. Keep track of small shifts in your pet’s behaviour, including urinary marking habits, mood swings and any diet changes. Take this notebook when you visit the vet. These seemingly unrelated occurrences may help explain results of your pet’s medical tests. Also, if you need to change vets, it’s good to have this journal to provide a complete medical history.

Here at Sydney Animal Hospitals, our veterinary team strive to be caring, calm and compassionate and are always willing to explain all the procedures your pet undergoes – and we want to make both you and your pet feel comfortable. Our veterinary team will advise you on the best medical treatments, surgical and dental procedures, as well as specialist referral options if required.

Because of the general risks inherent to anaesthesia, especially for very old, very young or very ill pets, our vets will often suggest a thorough examination, including a chest X-ray and lab work of blood and urine test, before your pet is anaesthetised. During the procedure your pet might need an intravenous fluid drip, and antibiotics may be necessary before and after the procedure.
