Wellness & Preventative Medicine

Wellness and Preventative Medicine

As part of your pet’s thorough annual check-up we recommend regular vaccinations. Vaccinations are essential to protect your pet from potentially fatal diseases. Reputable boarding establishents for dogs and cats will also insist on proof of up to date vaccinations. For dogs we recommend a C5 vaccine (Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, Parainfluenza and Bordatella) and for cats a F3 vaccine (Herpesvirus, Calicivirus, Feline enteritis virus) and if your cat goes outside and has contact with other cats FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) vaccine is also recommended.

During this check-up we can also ensure your pets flea control, intestinal worming and heartworm prevention are up to date and adequate.

Advanced Surgery

Advanced Surgery including orthopaedics

Our hospital is equipped to perform most types of surgery with modern anesthetic machines and advanced monitors to ensure safe anaesthesia. Our surgical area is fully sterile and we use safe, modern anaesthetics which are very similar to those used in human hospitals. Our veterinarians perform both standard surgeries (eg desexing and dental procedures) to advanced soft tissue and orthopedic procedures. Due to this level of skill, Thornbury Veterinary Hospital is able to help ensure your pet doesn’t get referred for costly procedures at specialist centers wherever possible. It is also less stressful for both yourself and your pet to stay with people you trust.

Expert Treatment

They use this experience to help diagnose and manage your pet’s health concerns. Our vets are especially skilled in geriatric medicine and can help to keep your pet comfortable in their twilight years.

Dentistry

Dentistry- routine cleaning and dental surgery

Dental problems are one of the most common concerns in small animals. Just like we have to brush daily to ensure we maintain good oral hygiene, our pets are the same. They mostly achieve this by chewing on high quality diets and chewing on dental treats and chews. Some dogs don’t chew very effectively, have underlying dental disease or poor dental conformation which predisposes them the dental disease.

If you are unsure about your pets’ dental health, Thornbury Veterinary Hospital offers free dental checks, where our vets and nurses will assess your pet’s teeth and health of the gums, and advise on any appropriate therapies that may be required. Call to book your free dental check now.

Diagnostic Services

Diagnostic Services on site including digital radiology and blood machines

We are able to perform a wide array of pathology tests within the hospital such as blood, urine and skin tests. Our specialized blood machines on the premises enable fast results which helps with rapid diagnosis and treatment, helping us achieve the best outcomes for your pet. We also are closely associated with an external animal pathology laboratory for those times we require more complex and detailed testing, and specialist pathologist diagnosis.

Thornbury Veterinary Hospital has state of the art digital radiology, which results in fast turnaround- ensuring increased patient comfort, reduced anaesthesia times and the highest level of accuracy. The images can also be sent with ease to specialists in high quality format where required, if a second opinion is required.

Geriatric Care

Geriatric Care, caring for your pets as they age

Our pets are now living longer than ever before, thanks to our rapidly expanding knowledge of pet health and increased quality of life. Which means it’s now highly likely your pet will live long enough to reach its geriatric stage. Depending on your pet’s breed, they are likely to reach their senior stage somewhere between 6 and 8 years of age.

Ageing is a natural part of life, both for humans and animals, rather than a disease in itself. However, once your pet does start to show signs of ageing it’s important to stay on top of all their health needs by bringing them in for annual or even bi-annual health checks so we can manage and help prevent the many conditions and diseases of geriatric pets.

Your pet’s annual health check is also the ideal time to chat to us about any changes you are noticing in your elderly pet. Our comprehensive physical examination and general health evaluation includes assessment of:

  • Weight and body condition,
  • dental condition and oral hygeine,
  • skin and coat conditions,
  • cardiovascular health,
  • bone and joint health,
  • and much more

Where required, we also conduct urine and blood screening for general health and organ function. These tests allow us to check your pet for symptoms of common geriatric diseases, such as: cancer, heart disease, dental disease, osteoarthritis, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney disease, liver disease and thyroid diseases.

Even though many of the conditions and diseases in your geriatric pet cannot be cured, we can help you manage these conditions so your pet’s quality of life and life expectancy are maximised.

Microchipping

Microchip implanting and registration

A microchip is a permanent method of identification for your pet. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted just under the skin over the shoulder blades by injection. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner, allowing lost or injured pets to be reunited with their owners as quickly as possible.

Behaviour

Behaviour Consultations

Please feel confident to talk to our vets about any unusual behaviours your pet may have. Noise and thunderstorm phobias, separation anxiety, aggression, inappropriate toileting, barking and destructive behaviours can all be very distressing to both pet and owner. Please make an appointment to discuss these problems, together we can work on a solution.
