General Health Care Vet Consultation
At Matraville Veterinary Practice we love seeing our patients (and their owners!) for consultations.
Regular vet consultations ensure your pet lives a happy, healthy and long life. We can detect and diagnose early any signs of injury or disease and treat them accordingly. We can check for any conditions that are common to your pet’s breed or related to their age and take preventive measure to ensure that they don’t suffer from them later in life.
Each consultation gives the veterinarian a chance to perform a thorough physical examination of your furry friend including examination of eyes, ears, mouth, teeth, skin, coat, auscultation of chest, palpation of abdomen and temperature check.
Of course we are also happy to see your furry friend at any time if you have any concerns at all. In our opinion, no problem is too small and we would always rather see a patient early when treatment is more likely to be successful than wait until the issue is serious.
Common reasons that we see animals for consultations other than their routine health checks are ear infections, allergic skin disease, lameness, vomiting, diarrhoea and general lethargy just to name a few.
