VET CLINIC AT
There are several types of consultations: a General Consultation, Wellness and Preventative Consultations, Vaccinations, Heartworm injections, Pre and Post Surgery Consultations and Home Visits.
A consultation with one of our vets at Caloundra Veterinary Surgery will assist them to diagnose illness and disease in your pet. A consultation covers a general health check which includes checking your pets vital signs, ears, eyes, lungs, heart and skin.
At Caloundra Vet we have new cat and dog cages to ease stress to your pet by being at the Vets. We can also separate cats and dogs in our waiting area, or provide you with an appointment time to suit your needs.
Xrays, Ultrasound, Blood Tests
Tests may be taken to assist our vets with further diagnosis and treatments. These include faecal and urine specimens, in-house and external blood testing, xrays, ultrasounds and skin scrapings.
Caloundra Vet Surgery is equipped with all the latest diagnostic equipment - IDEXX blood machine, Urinalysis, Digital Xray and Ultrasound. These diagnostic tools are “in house”, enabling our vets to provide you with quicker results which may be of considerable benefit to your pet. Utilising the latest in x-ray technology allows fast, efficient results with minimal radiation exposure for your pet.
At Caloundra Vet, our wellness exams are often used for older patients and can frequently involve Blood Tests, Urinalysis and Xrays to give our treating vet more information as to the patient's progress through their life. They are also significant so that any early problems can be acted upon and changes in lifestyle initiated to improve your pets life quality. Our Wellness Exams are still classified as Consultations, but the emphasis is somewhat different.
We are happy to visit you and your pet in your own home but please be aware that certain procedures and diagnostic tests will require us to take your pet back to our practice.
Caloundra Vet will conduct mobile house visits at a time that suits you, but this may not always be possible for operational reasons. Please call us to organise a convenient time and we will be happy to provide you with an estimate of the costs involved.
