Consultations & Health Exams

Keep on top of your pet's health with an annual examination to take care of vaccinations and parasite prevention, and discuss any behavioural or nutritional concerns.


It is essential that all pets are appropriately vaccinated to help protect them and others against infectious illness and disease. Ongoing annual booster injections are required to maintain immunity.

Parasite Control

It is crucial to maintain a routine worming treatment for your pets, to reduce the incidence of infection and to reduce environmental contamination. There are many worming treatments available for intestinal worm & heartworm infections that occur in our pets, including injections, tablets, chews, and topical applications.


Our veterinarians can help relieve excessive scratching, skin chewing or biting, rubbing or scooting, flaky dry skin, and hair loss caused by underlying skin irritations.
