If your dog is dragging its bottom along the ground it may be worms. It could also be impacted anal glands – please consult with us if symptoms persist after worming.
Other Worms: Lungworm, Hookworm, and Heartworm.

We at the Animal Care Hospital, strongly recommend pet insurance. With the increasing advances being made in veterinary medicine and surgery, knowing that your pet is insured can give you the peace of mind that you are providing your pet with the best possible care without the financial burden.
Illness or injuries can be sudden and unexpected, so why wait? Once a problem is diagnosed/noted by a vet it is too late and an insurance policy will not cover for this condition. Insure your pet today so that you will be ready for the unexpected tomorrow!
There are lots of various policy offers available so some research is essential. Make sure you understand what the policy is offering and covering. We currently have the most experience with Allianz but we are happy where possible to answer any queries you may have.
The following are typical costs of common injuries and illnesses that we encounter on a daily basis:

Different from dogs and cats you do not need to fast your rabbit.
At the time of booking your pet in for the anaesthetic, you will be asked whether you would like a pre-anaesthetic blood test for your pet.
1. You deserve peace of mind. Testing can significantly reduce medical risk, helping to ensure your pet’s health and safety.
2. Pets can’t tell us when they don’t feel well. A healthy looking pet may be hiding symptoms of a disease or ailment. For example, a pet can lose 75% of kidney function before showing any visible signs of illness. Pre-anaesthetic testing helps us to evaluate your pet’s health up front, so we can avoid any problems related to anaesthesia.
3. Testing can reduce risk and consequences. If pre-anaesthetic test results are within normal ranges we can proceed with confidence, knowing the anaesthetic risk is minimized. On the other hand, if results are not within normal ranges, we can alter the anaesthetic regime, or take other precautions to safeguard your pet’s health and reduce the risk of potential complications.
4. Testing can help protect your pet’s future health. These tests provide the baseline results for your pet and become part of his/her medical record for future reference.
This is easier and cheaper to do while your pet is anaesthetised. It means that your pet can be identified easily and permanently. Should it be lost or stolen it makes recovery much more likely as all pets details are recorded on a national database. The details are there for life and therefore will give you added peace of mind.
If you would like your pet to be microchipped please let us know when you bring him/her in for surgery.
Remember no two cases are exactly alike, if in doubt please get in touch by phone 021 489 3033 or email email@example.com.
1. Correctly treat all cats and dogs in your home every month for at least 3 months. Flea products are designed to kill fleas once they have jumped on to pets. They do not act as repellents, so new fleas can still jump on to the pet but these will then be killed by the product.
2. Vacuum the home, move all the furniture and concentrate on skirting boards and carpeted areas. This will remove some of the eggs before they develop further.
3. Wash pets bedding at 60 C to kill eggs and larvae. Remember to treat all blankets, carpets and kennels.
4. Thoroughly spray all floor space in the home with a household insecticidal spray. Home sprays kill flea eggs and larvae but they do not kill pupae therefore you may still see some new fleas hatching out for a while after using the spray.
5. Encourage the remaining flea pupae to hatch out into new adult fleas so that they can jump on to your treated pet and be killed before they lay more eggs. You can stimulate hatching by providing warmth, vibration, CO2 and humidity.
6. Once the home infestation has resolved, you will need to continue treating all cats and dogs in your
