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

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

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.

Micro-chipping

Micro-chipping

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

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.
