Keeping your pet healthy is better than treating him when he is sick. Vaccinations protect your pet from a variety of serious infectious diseases. We offer all core and non-core vaccinations for dogs and cats. Having your pet vaccinated against rabies is required by law in South Africa. Rabies is transmissable to humans and by vaccinating dogs we are protecting people too.

Spaying or neutering your pet can help them live a longer, healthier life, minimises behaviour problems and helps control the population of unwanted pets. Our high standards of surgery are enhanced by state of the art equipment and excellent patient care, including appropriate pain management.
