Did you know that all our guests are given a complimentary veterinary physical examination to the value of $90.00 on check-in?
This is done to ensure your animal is in good health upon check in and allows us to pick up on subtle health issues that you may not be aware of. Our Veterinary Surgeons will make appropriate health recommendations to ensure your pet stays in the best of health for years
Feel secure in the knowledge that your pet has access to first-rate medical services whilst you are away!
Other medical services that are available during your pet’s stay include:
Has your pet been recommended a dental procedure? IF so, both prophylaxis and dental surgery are available to our guests during their stay. All our guests are entitled to 20% off their dental procedure cost within one month of their stay with us.
Did you know cats older than 9 years are considered senior? As we age, certain diseases and organ dysfunction are more likely to occur. In cats, some of the most common senior diseases we see include Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Thyroid Disease, Pancreatitis, Cancer and Anaemia. Most can be detected through routine blood and urine testing.
It is important that we catch these diseases early as most of them are either curable or treatable if diagnosed in a timely fashion. If diagnosed much later, they can cause lengthy hospital stays or even be terminal.
At Balmain Veterinary Hospital, we practice a philosophy of prevention rather than reaction when it comes to medicine.
Most of our cats develop some form of arthritis as they age. The symptoms of this can be very subtle initially. It is important that arthritis is identified early and treated appropriately to slow it down and provide greater quality of life for your pet. We have a number of options to treat your pet’s arthritis.
Like us, high blood pressure is very common in cats, particularly as they age or if they develop medical disorders such as kidney disease or hyperthyroidism. We offer blood pressure monitoring services for our hotel guests.
Obesity is becoming increasingly prevalent in our cats as it is our human population. We have special foods and medical regimens available to ensure your cat loses weight. Obesity makes your cat more prone to arthritis, heart disease, infections and premature death.
