Ensuring Pet Health through Regular Vet Visits | Yeronga Vet Surgery

Regular visits to your pet clinic are not only important; as pet owners, it is our responsibility and obligation to ensure the health of our pets through regular visits to a qualified pet clinic. 

 Why do I need to take my pet to the Vet regularly?

 Most of the time like us humans, we take our pets to the Vet when there are already apparent signs, when our pets are already too sick, only then we decide to take them to the Vet. In cases where we don t see visible signs, pet doctors can spot if something is wrong with your pet. Regular visits help vets assess how your pet is progressing in life and if they may have picked up underlying conditions. 

 Below are factors that explain the reason why we need to follow regular appointment schedules with our Vet.

 Pet’s Age is a significant factor for their overall health.

 If you have a new kitten or puppy? Making that first trip to places like the Veterinary Services, in Qld is an important milestone. Your pet doctor can conduct diagnostic exams like blood tests and other tests necessary to gauge a pet’s health, signs of illness or disorder, and establish baseline laboratory values. These are all required procedures to develop what would be healthy for your pet and what they can tolerate.

Your veterinarian can then administer medical procedures like vaccines, routine spay or neuter, and other medical procedures to protect your pets from parasites, tick, flea-borne diseases, and others.

 As for aging/senior pets, all the more that you need to have regular visits to your Vet. Possible changes in diet, slowing down or even prevention of geriatric related diseases, and the important twice a year physical and blood tests. A slight limp and a lump there could mean something is developing in your pet. A small change in glucose levels could be an indication of diabetes or arthritis.

 Post- Operative Appointments

 After a surgical operation, it is essential to keep up with the vet clinic’s appointment schedule. Vet Surgery is a delicate procedure that is why we want to make sure your pet is healing and recovering properly. Depending on the type of wound of your pet, it usually takes 10-12 days for a wound/laceration to heal, if you follow the doctor’s advice and appointments, your pet will be okay.

 Regular pet clinic visits will not only guarantee that they stay healthy. You can also avoid situations wherein you may need to call for an animal emergency in Brisbane or nearby areas because your pet needs urgent care. 

 When you have a pet, regular vet checkups should be a priority. At Yeronga Vet Surgery, you can expect the highest level of pet care, and we treat your pet as if it were our own.

I have been a patient of Yeronga Vet Clinic for over 20 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else. Dr Lisca and the team are second to none. Recently my 3 year old Labradoodle Daisy ruptured her cruciate ligament and underwent surgery. The professionalism and care Daisy received was top class. I would recommend Yeronga Vet Clinic to anyone looking for a great vet service for their fur baby.

We first came to Yeronga Veterinary Surgery nearly 4 years ago, carrying our tiny black Labrador puppy Delilah in, hoping to find some guidance and caring attention, and just a little bit of shared dog-madness. Well, we were in luck, and we have never looked back. The team at Yeronga Vet Surgery have been nothing short of exceptional at every step of our journey with them. From the basics of preventative care to important surgeries (and the odd mini-emergency thanks to our hungry labradors…) everyone has been both professional and welcoming, and more importantly, extremely good at their jobs! I am constantly blown away by the care and attention we receive, and the fact that our dogs cry with excitement when we pull into the street says it all. We’ve never had dogs who are so excited to visit the vet. We can’t recommend the team highly enough – they are exceptional.

Hi there puny human my name is Bastet. Here is a picture of me in all my glory to help your feeble human brain rest for a moment so I don’t pile on to much information at once. Ready? Nevermind let’s continue. Every few months my manservant deems it necessary to verify the divinity of close personal friend Zeus and myself, here is picture of us looking regal. I know you’re thinking “They are clearly perfect why would he waste their time.” and the answer is frankly he’s not very bright but means well so we indulge him. One thing we demand in return is that he takes us to the Yeronga Vet Surgery where we know we will be shown the respect and deference as befits ones such as us. So if you must interrupt the napping, playing or eating of your betters take them to Yeronga Vet Surgery.

Yeronga Vet have alway been wonderful in their professionalism and care over the years for those furrier members of the family, adding a healthy dose of genuine sympathy for those less routine difficult visits.
