Facilities & Services
Our ambulance is primarily used for responding to emergencies, and picking up or dropping off animals before and after surgery. Our ambulance is modified inside to maximise the intensive care we can provide en route to the Our Clinic. For example we have in-built oxygen tanks to provide oxygen to critical patients, this can make the difference between life and death sometimes. We can also provide routine house calls if necessary, but we prefer to schedule appointments at the clinic where we have all the equipment and laboratory facilities available to us should we need them.
The most important features of an operating theatre are that it is spacious, well lit and easy to clean properly. Our theatre was built with this in mind, and is conveniently located adjacent to the Xray room so that we can take Xrays before, during or immediately after a procedure without hassle.
For this service, you contact a pet cremation facility. An individual cremation assures that your pet’s ashes are not mixed with other animals and the remains can be returned to you or disposed of according to your wishes. It’s important to remember that since most of the body is made of water, the volume of ashes you receive is relatively small. Like a communal burial, a group cremation processes multiple pets. Given the mix of remains, this service does not normally offer to return ashes to pet owners. The pet crematorium should allow you to witness the cremation without additional fees.
PET’S BURIAL GROUND
Many people prefer to bury their pet on their property although zoning restrictions limit this practice in some areas. Burying your pet at home makes it easy to visit your pet’s grave and is inexpensive. However, you should consider how you may feel if you change your address or if future alterations to your property might affect your pet’s gravesite.
The growing “status” of family pets causes some pet owners to request a shared gravesite with their pets. While most current laws prohibit cemeteries from allowing this, growing recognition of pet’s roles in the family are inviting changes to these policies.
