Your pet's health is very important to us, so yearly health checks are a part of our service on offer. Regular vaccinations are just as important for your dog, cat, puppy or kitten and are an important preventative measure in keeping your pet healthy.

Heartworm Testing and Yearly Proheart Injection

Heartworm is spread through the bite from a mosquito, here in NQ we have lots of them so preventing this disease is paramount. Once infected, the worms reside in the heart of the host during the final stage of its life cycle. It can cause congestive heart failure and death.

It is easily prevented by a monthly preventative or by an annual injection (for dogs). If you or your vet suspects heartworm, a simple blood test at your house can show if the parasite is present.


In Australia, dogs and cats are sold, lost or stolen each year. Alot are not microchipped and may never find their owners again. A simple microchip can help a pet find its way back to its owner.

Queensland law states 'All dogs and cats born after 10 April 2009 must be microchipped before they are sold or given away. All regulated dogs must be microchipped regardless of when they were born.

Microchips may be implanted only by a vet or other authorised implanter. When your animal is implanted with a microchip, the implanter must provide the microchip's unique number, the animal's information and your contact details to a licensed registry service. It is your responsibility (owner) to make sure these records are kept up to date.

When the microchip is read or scanned it shows the microchip number which is linked to information about the animal, including its owner and the owner's contact details. This information is important if your animal is lost or impounded'.

Lost, found or impounded animals, change of ownership or new registrations can be accessed by visiting the Australian Animal Registry at

Dental Check-ups

Dental Disease is a concern for most pet owners today. Affected teeth or gums can cause bad breath, pain and inflammation that impede eating and overall health. Dental disease increases the risk of bacteria entering the blood stream and is the cause for some heart disease, arthritis and can affect other organs leading to very poor health.

Pain Management

Just like humans, animals can experience pain resulting from injuries, surgical procedures, chronic conditions, or age-related issues and during pallietive care. Recognizing and addressing their pain is essential for maintaining their comfort, mobility, and overall happiness. Pain can have a significant impact on your pet's behavior, appetite, and activity level, which in turn can affect their quality of life.

Parasite Control

Parasites such as fleas, ticks, mites, mosquitoes, and intestinal worms can pose significant risks to your pet's health. These parasites not only cause discomfort but can also transmit diseases, leading to more severe health issues. By implementing effective parasite control measures, you can safeguard your pet's health and prevent potential complications that may arise from parasite infestations.
