Southside Animal Hospital, Cronulla stock a range of premium pet food, shampoos, worming and flea preventative products and medications.
Southside Animal Hospital Cronulla is equipped for the following:
Consultations & Health Checks
Just as it is important for humans to have check ups, it is just as important for our furry family members! Health Checks are performed by the vet to keep your pet in good health. We generally recommend yearly checks for pets who are in considerably good health, and for geriatric patients, every 6 months is suggested.
Vaccinations, Worming & Tick Prevention
Dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets require annual vaccinations to keep their immunity strong and to protect them against potentially fatal diseases. For adult dogs and cats, worming is generally recommended every three months (depending on your product choice) and tick prevention is essential! Particularly in the Shire, due to the increased incidence of potentially fatal tick bites. Please, if you ever see your animal unable to move or appears to be paralysed, please call us immediately.
Microchips are an essential way of identifying lost dogs and are a compulsory part of animal ownership. Microchipping is usually organised at a very early age. Please also remember to update your home address contact information for your pets if you move house.
Wildlife & Exotic Pet Care
We now offer exotic pet care services including looking after exotic birds, reptiles (lizards, snakes, turtles), fish, axolotls, frogs and Australian wildlife. We have an exotic vet with us one day a week currently so please call us to find out more information. All of our vets are well versed at looking after all small animals including ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs, rats and mice. We are members of WIRES and we accept and care for injured wildlife.
Tailored Nutritional Advice
Just like humans, animals have varying nutritional requirements. We can tailor a diet and recommend a food suitable for your pet depending on their health condition / health goals.
Certain medical conditions can lead to animals gaining weight, as can a lack of exercise and inappropriate feeding. At SSAH, we can help. Ask us for information on how to manage your pets weight.
