Radiography

Xrays are a powerful diagnostic tool and with our new powerful xray machine we can take xrays from the smallest to the largest pet.

Dr Shanti Scott has done significant additional training in this field providing a great extra resource for the clinic.

Ultrasound

Our ultrasound machine is also very useful diagnostically. We can quickly check for pregnancy, free fluid in the abdomen, urinary bladder and other organs.

Blood Pressure

We have a modern electronic HDO blood pressure unit so that we can diagnose and manage hypertention in cats as well as dogs. We can measure your pet's blood pressure quickly, effectively and stress free. Blood pressure problems are very common in aging cats with kidney concerns.

ECG

Our ECG machine is invaluable if your pet has an abnormal heart rhythm that requires evaluation.We use our ECG and blood pressure unit to monitor high risk anaesthesias.

Cytology

We have a microscope to examine skin scrapings, fine needle aspirates from lumps, ears and urine samples to check for crystals or bacteria. A variety of stains are to our availability. We can centrifuge samples such as urine for more detailed examination.

Culture

The Clinic has a special incubator and agar plates which enables us to do urine cultures on site. We can also determine which antiboitic treatment to use by means of sensitivity tests
