We are able to offer advanced cancer staging through biopsies, cytology, ultrasound and digital radiology. Once diagnosed and staged, we can consult with you on the best treatment for your pet. We offer a complete range of chemotherapy treatments with up to date knowledge and drugs.
At Drovers Vet Hospital we recognise that your cat is not just a small dog. We have a separate cat waiting area and a dedicated cat consult room and ward. We have been accredited as a Cat Friendly Clinic by the International Society for Feline Medicine and Dr van Boeijen has further qualifications in Feline Medicine with the ANZCVS by Membership examination.
With the rapid development of technology on many fronts, veterinary medicine has also benefited. Being able to offer an “in-house” laboratory service is now a reality. This technology comes in various forms, sizes and abilities. At Drovers Veterinary Hospital, we are pleased to be able to offer a full range of in-house diagnostics.
Broken bones and cruciate ligament problems are the most common orthopaedic problems encountered in veterinary practice. Being able to offer these latest treatments and surgeries in a veterinary facility is vital. Application of plates and screws for fractures, external fixation devices, cruciate ligament repair and knee cap surgery are just some of the orthopaedic surgical procedures we are capable of providing at Drovers Vet Hospital.
Many of the vets now at Drovers Vet Hospital have completed post graduate study or courses in ultrasound and can perform most ultrasound examinations. Our investment in this service goes beyond our veterinary knowledge base – we have invested in a high end Siemens X300 ultrasound unit, with both advanced cardiac (heart) and abdominal (stomach and other organs) software.
