Dental Care

Four out of five (80%) dogs and cats over the age of three years have some sort of dental disease which may go unnoticed by their owners.

Worming

Dog and cats need to be regularly wormed to protect them and your family from the effects of internal parasites. 

Tick Control

There are several ticks native to Australia, the main tick of concern is the paralysis tick. 

Flea Control

Fleas are usually mostly seen during the warmer months especially after periods of rain. However fleas can be found all year round in heated houses.

Ear Cleaning

Dogs and cats have a sharp curve in their ear canals, making it difficult for air to pass through and dry up any moisture that bacteria and yeast need to thrive.
