• Calicivirus (K5 Strain) Vaccination

  • Microchips - Why we should do this ?

    A microchip is a permanent form of identification that contains a unique identification number that is linked to your address and contact information. Inserting a microchip is a very safe procedure. The microchip itself is approximately the size of a grain of rice and is implanted between the shoulder blades by injection. If your pet is lost and scanned for a microchip at a veterinary clinic or by the council we are able to check a national database for owners contact details for your pet to be returned home safely. Local council laws require your pet to be identified with a microchip before registering with your local council.
