Clinical Services (for when your pet is poorly.)
When your pet has a problem finding out what’s wrong quickly and accurately is vital. That’s why we’ve invested heavily in the very best diagnostic, surgery and medical equipment and skills available.
Diagnostics (x-rays, ultrasound and endoscopy)
Digital X-rays are very commonly used in veterinary medicine to diagnose a range of pet problems from limping to coughing. We have a state of the art digital Xray system that give images faster and of better quality than older non-digital systems. This means your pet spends less time anaesthetised as we get to the bottom of any problems quickly. It is also much better for the environment as we aren't using any polluting developer chemicals.
Ultrasound is an amazing technology allowing us to harmlessly look inside your pet, often without the need for anaesthesia. We can undertake scans of both the chest (for heart problems) and tummy (for abdominal disease). Ultrasound and Xrays are commonly used together for more accurate diagnosis. Few vets have the technology (and additional skills required to use it properly) so readily available.
Finally, we also have a video endoscope which is a small fibre-optic camera used to look inside our patients. This technique means many procedures (like biopsies) that would have involved major surgery can be done at Double Bay Vet Clinic without the need for any surgery at all!
Our vets are trained in general surgery and we undertake many lifesaving procedures. From minor procedures (like lump removals) to major abdominal operations. We also use the most up to date anaesthetic and pain relief programs to ensure your pet is safe and comfortable before, during and after their procedure.
Dr Sally Pegrum and Professor Richard Malik are two of the most qualified and experienced medicine vets in the country. If you pet has a medical ailment, we’ll find it. And because we use a local laboratory that does daily sample collections, fast turnaround and online reporting – we get accurate test results fast.
Did you know that over 80% of cats, dogs and rabbits are suffering with painful dental disease? This alarming statistic is made worse by the fact that commonly pet owners are completely unaware of the problem.
