- Our Services
Dental care is an extremely important area of pet care, and the clinic is equipped with modern dental machinery and tools to help maintain your pets dental health. At our Dawes Road clinic we have a seperate dental suite with a new dental machine and specialised dental table. Ultrasonic scaling, polishing and drill equipment is used daily by the trained staff to help alleviate common dental problems. This is supported by our dental consultations to help you care for your pets teeth at home.
We have a well equipped in house laboratory, which allows us to process blood samples quickly and easily – very important for a critically ill patient when we need information fast. Blood analysers allow us to check a wide range of organ functions such as liver, kidney, pancreas, red and white blood cells and vital electrolyte balances. Results are usually available within 20 minutes.
Diabetic monitoring is routinely performed by the veterinary nurses with the aid of our glucometer machines. These machines can give a blood sugar result in 30 seconds, with only a tiny amount of blood sample needed.
We are able to perform other routine laboratory tests other than blood tests, with the use of our microscope. For example, microscopy can be performed on urine samples to check for a number of problems, such as bacterial infections, crystals and stones, or on skin scrapes to check for mite infestations and infections. We can also look at blood smears to give us more in depth information about blood cells, and help us to rule out diseases, or make a diagnosis.
All branches have dedicated surgical wards, with separate kennel, theatre and pre operative preparation areas. This enables surgical operations to be carried out with a high level of sterility, thus helping to combat the risk of post operative secondary infections. Patients can recover in a comfortable and warm environment, under the care and monitoring of our highly trained veterinary nurses. All our staff maintain a high level of on going training in nursing and theatre procedures, ensuring the best care possible for your pet.
Our clinics follow Gold Standard Anaesthetic protocols, which means we offer the safest anaesthetic procedure possible for your pet. All anaesthetics carry an element of risk, but by using the most up to date products available to us, along with modern anaesthetic equipment and highly trained staff, we can offer the highest standard of care. Our equipment is well maintained and regularly serviced by independent specialists. Precision instruments are used during anaesthesia which can measure blood pressure, oxygenation levels, breathing rates, and heart and pulse rates, which are recorded and monitored by the veterinary nurses. These protocols help to ensure the patient has a smooth anaesthetic and a swift recovery.
The Dawes road clinic is equipped with a specialized x ray machine, vital for imaging internal organs and bones. A fully automated x ray film processor allows us to develop high quality x ray pictures.
We also have the benefit of ultrasonography, which enables even more detailed internal imaging of a sick or injured pet.
Paws Inc. has its very own animal ambulance allowing us to offer Food deliveries, House calls and pet pick ups.
All need to be booked in advance, please contact one of our clinics for further information.
