Personal Pet Care Assured
Our vets recommend an annual check for all pets. Annual vaccination can also be given at the this time. Visiting every 6 months is the recommendation for the Seniors. Our pet’s age more quickly than we do, so it is like visiting your Doctor every 7 years! Detecting problems early can make all the difference in managing them.
At your pet’s Annual Health Check your veterinarian will examine many areas including teeth, ears and skin, temperature check, listen to the heart, as well as discuss any lameness or pain issues that may be of concern. It gives you the opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have about your pet’s health. The team at Windaroo Animal Hospital have a 10 point checklist we run through to make sure we have all bases covered. Our Veterinary Nurse team will likely get this started.
Some dogs never require a nail trim and others need it every few weeks. Regular nail trimming from a young age can train your dog to tolerate the procedure without too much fuss. Please ask for help from our team as a bad experience can escalate anxiety. Sometimes sedation is the best option.
Currently we do not have a groomer on site but the Team can give you a few local recommendations. Sometimes we are asked to clip dogs under sedation.
Just like rearing children, there are many variations on diet recommendations for pets amongst Veterinarians. One of the biggest problems we encounter is overweight pets and this can lead to Diabetes in Cats and lameness issues in dogs. Please don’t be offended if our Vets recommend a little trimming!
A diet needs to meet all the nutritional requirements suitable for the stage of the pet: growing, adult, senior, pregnancy/feeding pups etc. There are also some Veterinary diets from Royal Canin and Hills that are specific for a particular medical condition. Your vet can discuss this in detail with you. One of the most common problems that diet changes can assist with is Urinary Issues in cats.
We also strongly believe the size and shape of the food makes a difference to dental health. Raw meaty bones of the correct size and shape for each individual can make a big difference. There are specific Dental Diets and we have pet tooth brushing equipment available. Please discuss the options at your pet’s next Health Check.

When you arrive at the Hospital, please wait in your car and call us on 3807 3699. Someone will come out to collect your pet. Due to the 1 person per 4 square metre rule, we recommend a Window or Outdoor consultation. This enables our Nurse to assist the Veterinarian in examining and treating your pet, whilst you can still be in view. For food and drug orders, please phone ahead 3807 3699 or send us an email: [email protected]
Please ensure you carry a face mask to wear when close to others. Any person with respiratory signs should stay home and not come to the hospital. Please ask a friend to bring your pet in if required.
