General medicine

Preventive medicine

A full medical examination is recommended at the veterinarian on an annual basis for your animal companion. Such a visit allows to ensure his good health.

A preventive visit has distinct stages:

Detailed physical examination aimed at determining the state of health of your animal and any health problem that may ensue;

  • Annual blood test depending on the age of your animal;
  • Nutritional recommendations adapted to the needs of your animal;
  • Giving vaccinations based on a program adapted to the lifestyle of your companion;
  • Search for any internal parasite via stool analysis;
  • Prevention of heart worms, intestinal worms and skin parasites (e.g. fleas and ticks).

Medical consultations

Are you worried about the health of your companion?  Have you noticed changes in his usual habits?  Is he quieter than usual?  Has he thrown up several times during the day?  Does he seem to have trouble urinating? Does he scratch his ears?  Has he had discharges from his eyes during the last few days?

Don’t delay to have him looked at! Certain health problems can degenerate rapidly. A speedy taking in charge is the best choice.

We will make a thorough examination of your animal.  Since you are his family, you will be involved in any examination. Your answers and your comments will be important. After the examination we may recommend more detailed diagnostic procedures. Finally, a treatment plan will be put in place together with your assistance.

Diagnostic services

The Clinic has a fully equipped laboratory which allows multiple analysis in a short time. This improves the quality of the diagnosis and allows for the ideal treatment for your companion to be put in place the same day. X-rays are also done in the Clinic with the help of efficient equipment.

We carry out, among other things:

  • Thorough blood tests (hematology and biochemistry): to detect anemia, any source of inflammation, an illness of the liver, kidneys or endoctrinal glands (eg. Diabetes, hypothyroid);
  • Urinal tests (urology): to detect a urinary infection, urinary crystals, tumoral process, illness of the kidneys;
  • Various cytologies (ears, skin, inhalation mass): to detect the presence of mushrooms, bacteria or parasites, such as ear or skin mites;
  • Detection of heart worms and Lyme’s disease;
  • Detection of parovirus in dogs;
  • Detection of leukaemia in cats (FeLV) and AIDS in cats (FIV).
