Cytology (looking at the cells under a microscope) is available for skin testing, lumps and bumps and ear infections to ensure appropriate treatment is initiated in a fast and effective manner.

We encourage new bird and reptile health exams and also offer a wide range of services and support for the care of Australian native wildlife.

For older animals, we can offer advice and treatments for ensuring adequate nutrition and brain health, as well as managing arthritis and slowing progression to keep your pet happy and healthy through their twilight years.
