At Adelaide Plains Veterinary Surgery we offer thorough and affordable veterinary consultations 6 days a week, Monday through to Saturday with a plan to extend to Sunday consulting soon! If you’re worried about your pet’s health, if they’ve had an accident, or to arrange a general checkup for your pet, please call us to make an appointment. At our practice, standard vet consultations are 15 minutes long – if you think you might need more time with the vet due to numerous health concerns to review or because of a nervous pet, let our friendly front desk staff know when you make the booking.
What happens in a standard veterinary consultation?
Our expert vet will give your pet a careful physical examination, calmly and quietly to put your pet at ease. We’ll look at issues you may be aware of and also check for any other signs of a problem. If we can, we’ll treat the problem right away, but sometimes we’ll organise for further testing like an X-ray or a blood test – which we can do in-house to allow for quick and convenient diagnoses.
Wellness and Preventative medicine
Annual health checks are important to catch any health issues as early as possible.
During a routine health examination at Adelaide Plains you can expect your veterinarian to perform a thorough physical examination from nose to tail. We will also review your pet’s dental health, diet, parasite prevention and vaccination history.
We recommend health checks be performed regularly and at different stages of your pet’s life. You should consider booking an appointment for any of the following:
- New Puppy and Kitten health checks
- Post-purchase health checks after buying a new pet
- Adolescent health checks prior to desexing
- Annual health checks are recommended for all pets
- Dental health checks
- Senior health checks for pets over 7 years of age
To book your pet in for a health check or a general vet consultation, call us today, (08) 8520 3600
