FAQS

Cats

Do you do grooming for cats?
Our grooming is limited to our feline patients, particularly fractious cats. Sedation may be necessary.

What age can we desex our kitten?
Kittens can be desexed from 3 months of age.

How do I trim claws?
Nail clippers are best. Your vet can give you a demonstration to get you started.

Why does my cats breath smell bad?
This is most likely to be dental disease. Make an appointment for your Vet to check this for you.

How long is my cat in season?
72 hours

How long is a cat pregnant?
63-66 days
Dogs

What age do we desex our puppy?
Puppys can be desexed from 3 months, but around 6 months is better. If they come in at 6 months old, we can remove any baby teeth that haven't fallen out at the same time.

How do I trim my Puppys claws?
Nail clippers are best to trim claws. We can give you a demonstration to get you started.

Why does my dogs breath stink?
If you clean your dogs teeth and their breath still smells, it may be because of dental disease. Please make an appointment with your vet so that we can check this for you.

Can I treat my pregnant bitch for fleas and worms?
Most treatments available at the vet clinic are safe to use, but please refer to us or the safety recommendations for each product.

Can my puppys worms be caught by our family?
Yes, they can. Make sure that your family as well as your puppy are treated for worms if they have been exposed.

How long is a dog pregnant?
60-63 days.

Does your practice dock dogs tails?
No 

Does your practice remove dew claws?
We can remove dew claws in puppies less than 3 days old. Older dogs require anaesthesia and we can do this at the same time as desexing.

Why does my dog scoot along the ground on his bottom?
Most pruritis or itchiness of the bottom is caused by impacted anal glands. Occasionally other anal problems can cause this. It is best to book in to see us to express the anal glands and check the bottom area.
