The Wellington Animal Hospital Group provides a wide range of surgical procedures.
Our preventative surgery entails population and disease control through surgical sterilisation of all companion animals – ranging from cats and dogs to exotic pets such as rodents, primates, reptiles and birds. Emergency obstetrics are also dealt with on a 24-hour basis.
Other preventative and diagnostic procedures like dental scaling, ear flushing, eye tests, etc. are done on all week days.
We also provide surgical management of wounds, injuries, infections and tumours as part of a treatment strategy. Orthopaedic cases including bone fractures and ligament injuries are commonly seen and surgical correction performed in-house.
In the case of orthopaedic or spinal conditions and injuries beyond the scope of general practice, we assist in the referral process to dedicated surgical specialists.
Our sedation and anaesthetic protocols are selected to provide the care, calming, monitoring as well as the speed and ease in recovery required for your pet’s safety and your own peace of mind. Pre- and post-operative pain management is of paramount importance to us and every possible step is taken to provide your pet with the best possible experience while at the hospital and during the recovery period thereafter.
Your pet’s general health and quality of life are our main concerns.
When presented with a sick animal, obtaining the correct diagnosis promptly and accurately is crucial for effective treatment and thus wellbeing of your pet.
We have an in-house laboratory, modern radiographic equipment, ultrasound sonar scanning and endoscopy available. This means that we have ready access to important laboratory tests that can be an important aid in making a prompt and accurate diagnosis in the optimal treatment of your pet.
Our branches in Wellington and Paarl also offer in-patient facilities where your pet can be hospitalized for more intensive treatment, if necessary.
