    As a pet owner, there is no harder decision to make than choosing the time to say goodbye.
    No one knows your pet(s) better than you do, so you will know if they still have the same quality of life that they are used to.
    All pets are different, so don’t be afraid to ask our team if you need advice. When you are ready to make an appointment, simply contact our clinic and the team will guide you.

    Can euthanasia been done at home?
    Yes. We are more than happy to visit you and your pet in your home. It is a personal choice and we want to do whatever is easiest for you.

    How is euthanasia performed?
    After having discussed your wishes we will ask you to sign a consent form. Our vet will give a sedation injection to make sure that your beloved pet is sleeping and relaxing before the final needle then he will clip a patch of fur, usually on your pet’s foreleg to locate their vein. Once your pet is comfortable the vet will then carry out the injection. The injection is similar to an anaesthetic so they will not feel any pain and just feel like they are falling asleep. It is usually a very quick and painless procedure. Many people are surprised at how peaceful euthanasia can be. Occasionally when your pet is unconscious, some involuntary movements such as twitching and deep breaths may occur. This is perfectly normal when your pet’s muscles relax as their body is shutting down.

    Do I have to be present while euthanasia is performed?
    It is your choice to be present or not. Being there with your pet when he or she is put to sleep can be an emotional time. You may also feel relief in knowing you can comfort your pet during their last moments while you say goodbye. This is not true for everyone and we fully understand if you do not want to be present with your pet when the injection is given. There will be time for you and your family to say your goodbyes afterwards.

    What happens afterwards?
    If you wish to have your pet cremated, there are two options for cremation. A private cremation is when your pet is cremated on their own and you will receive their ashes back afterwards you also can have a nice memorial paw print . A general cremation is when your pet is cremated with other pets.

      What does spay and neuter means ?

      Spay: surgical procedure for mature female dog/cat involves complete removal of the do’s ovaries and uterus
      Neuter : surgical procedure for mature male dog/cat involves removal of the two testicles .

      Why spay and neuter is important to my pet ?

      Spaying your pet will protect them from a fatal diseases called pyrometer which is pus inside her uterus as well as decreasing the risk of mammary gland cancer .

      Neutering your pet will reduce the risk of prostate cancer as well as behavioural problems.
      At our hospital we routinely surgically treat a comprehensive variety of conditions involving ears, eys, mouth, gastrointestinal tract, urogenital system, wound management, hormonal disorders and hernias that can affect our pets.

      Pets can suffer from widely varying clinical signs of illness such as lethargy, lumps, hernias, problems passign urine etc. After a thorough investigation we often conclude that a surgical procedure would be most beneficial or most efficient way to treat your pet. Our vets carry out a variety of surgeries with the highest standard of care and sterility with the aim being to return your pet to a normal life as soon as possible. We provide high standards for safe anaesthesia, intraoperative pain management (reducing pain to the minimum during the procedure and shortening recovery time) anaesthesia monitoring, sterile preparation and surgical techniques. These factors all help to ensure your pet recovers as quickly as possible and reduces the risk of surgical complications while keeping stress to a minimum.

      Our patients are closely monitored by our excellent nursing team who will care for your pet from the time of their admission to their discharge. They ensure the animals are comfortable, warm and well fed throughout their hospital stay. Time is spent with your pet both in the kennel/cattery and if appropriate walking in the outside paddock. We appreciate that a contented patient is more likely to make a quick and successful recovery.

      Statistics reveal good oral hygiene is fairly rare among our pets. More often than not, your pet is vulnerable or already has some form of oral disease by age 2.
      Dental disease can significantly decrease a pets quality of life as well as their life expectancy.
      At Wilson Road Veterinary Clinic , we strive to keep your pets in excellent dental health.
      You may not think you need to make regular appointments for your pet’s teeth, or that their dental health is good because you don’t see any visible problems.
      There are, however, several dental problems your pet could face. If your pet is not given proper dental care, it is likely he/she may develop any of the following conditions:

      • Gingivitis
      • Dental abscesses
      • Tooth loss
      • Pain
      • Liver disease
      • Kidney disease
      • Bone infection

      Dental disease often results in extreme pain and feelings of sickness in your pet.

      The key to good pet dental hygiene is prevention. Instituting a preventative dental program can be very simple yet extremely rewarding. From special diets, treats, tooth brushing to routine dental cleanings, pets may never have to experience the pain and feeling of illness associated with dental disease. With access to the right knowledge, skills and facilities, your pet will never have to suffer from dental ailments.
      Symptoms to Watch Out For: Pets are very good at hiding the signs of dental disease. However, an observant owner can sometimes detect oral disease in their cats or dogs from simply being watchful. Some of the signs include:
      • Bad breath
      • Reluctant chewingh
      • Increased salivation
      • Unusual pawing at the face
      • Bleeding gums
      • BMissing and/or loose teeth
      • Increased tartar buildup
      • Swollen gums

      Unfortunately, pets seldom exhibit signs of dental disease, even when severe. For this reason, it is important to have regular dental examinations performed by the veterinarians at Wilson Road Veterinary Clinic

      Good dental hygiene is just as important for pets as it is for humans. Don’t wait until it’s too late to visit a pet dental clinic. Contact Us today for tips on good oral hygiene for your pets, and to make an appointment with our dog dentist.

    Flea control:
    Preventing and treating a flea infestation has never been simpler or safer. There are many treatment programs available.
    Unfortunately, there are many over the counter products that are neither safe nor effective. Please contact our hospital for recommendations.
