Our team understands that special bond between you and your pets ... PETS ARE FAMILY!
Our ’state of the art’ hospital @ Wamberal is designed to provide our patients with the level of technology and comfort expected by our clients; combined with the skill and empathy of our staff in ensuring an optimal outcome for your family pet. Considerable effort has gone into design, materials and new equipment that we can confidently state that only a specialist centre could provide better.
Our Hydrocentre with the Ferno Aqua Paws Plus underwater treadmill is a leap ahead to the level of service required to optimise the treatment of orthopaedic diseases (post-surgery rehab, arthritis and injury recovery), neurologic disease, weight control and geriatric conditions. As an example; the recovery of dogs following surgery for anterior cruciate ligament rupture is remarkably improved in both quality and speed by twice weekly underwater treadmill sessions for 6-8 weeks.

Veterinary Information Network - VIN
This hospital is a member of VIN, the Veterinary Information Network, because we choose to provide the best current health care available for your pet. We live in a rapidly changing world: Like all health care professionals, we face rapid change - new diseases, new technologies, new drugs, and new treatments emerge every month. Remaining up-to-date with these changes is important, so we can offer the best care for your pets and best serve you. We also face new challenges such as monitoring emerging and exotic diseases - like Avian flu and West Nile virus - and the threat of bioterrorism. The knowledge and experience of thousands of veterinarians: As a member of VIN, we have constant access to a vast veterinary medical "library and access to an online worldwide community of over 14,000 veterinarians, including hundreds of specialists." Via email we are able to seek veterinary opinion from overseas specialist on challenging cases, eg, digital images of a difficult skin problem can be emailed to a specialist dermatologist, or blood results can be sent a specialist clinical pathologist for a discussion of findings.
