Whites Road Veterinary Clinic is a branch of Salisbury Highway Vet Surgery with the same staff and same dedication to providing your pet with the best possible veterinary care. We offer professional consultation services, including behaviour consults, as well as up-to-date advice on preventative health care, training, and nutrition. We also have a specially designed comfort room for euthanasia appointments to make this difficult time as peaceful as possible.
We know that when your pet is sick you want answers, fast. That's why we are equipped with a wide range of specialised equipment to assist us in diagnosis and treatment.
This includes IDEXX in-house laboratory machines for on-demand blood testing, digital X-ray processing for general and dental radiography, microscopy equipment, ECG, and a MyLab ultrasound machine. We also have disease specific blood tests that are quick and easy to run in-house (including Parvovirus, FIV/FeLV, and Heartworm Disease).
We can also provide Advance DNA Testing for dogs - the results might just surprise you!
Although often necessary, surgery can be a stressful time for you and your pet. Have peace of mind knowing that one of our highly-trained nurses will be monitoring your pet’s anaesthetic throughout their procedure.
We monitor and record your pet’s blood pressure, pulse and respiration rate, oxygenation, and temperature for every anaesthetic. All our surgical patients receive intravenous fluid therapy as standard. We have heating apparatus including Darvall heated anaesthetic tubing to maintain your pet’s temperature throughout their anaesthetic, assisting a quick and smooth recovery. In the hospital we have dedicated dog and cat areas with individual housing for your pet’s comfort.
Do you know the difference between a behaviour problem and a problem behaviour? We’re here to help!
We provide dedicated behavioural and training consultations with our senior veterinarian, Dr Ian McBryde, and Cert IV veterinary nurse, Kerryn Dowell (currently undertaking her Delta Dog Training certification).
We stock a wide range of training aids to provide environmental enrichment for your pet, helping to keep them occupied and stimulated at home. We can also arrange harness or head collar fittings and provide training advice on walking aids and on those hard to tackle problem behaviours.
Did you know that over 80% of pets over 3 years of age suffer from dental disease? 'Doggy breath' isn't normal and can be an early sign of an unhealthy mouth, with bacteria on the surface of teeth leading to gum inflammation (gingivitis) and pain.
Removing plaque and tartar early can stop dental disease in its tracks but, if left untreated the build-up of bacteria on your pet's teeth can have some serious consequences for their long term health beyond just losing teeth. Remember, prevention is better than cure and we're here to help! Ask us about how to maintain your pet's dental health at home, from daily brushing to veterinary-approved dental chews.
Puppy Pre-School really is one of the best things you can do for your new puppy! Our course promotes positive socialisation between puppies, people, and even our clinic cat Basil.
New and positive experiences provide young puppies with the best possible start in life! Our courses encourage positive play and interaction between puppies while also providing you with great training tips and techniques to ensure your puppy develops good behaviours and habits.
We believe that great nutrition provides the best foundation for your pet's health and longevity. From prescription diets for specific health concerns to diets for general wellbeing, we can provide expert advice on what's best for your pet and have seen first hand the difference the right diet can make!
We're also able to assist you in making the right nutritional choices for your pet at every lifestage, from birth into their twilight years.
There are so many pet products available today that even a trip to the supermarket can be overwhelming! But don't worry, we're here to help. We stock a wide range of vet-approved pet products, along with up-to-date knowledge and advice.
Prevention is better than cure! We stock a range of preventative health care products for dogs and cats and are here to help find what works best for you and your pet.
We know first hand that vet bills don’t always come at a convenient time! Payment options mean your pet can get the treatment and care they need, when they need it. You can apply online or get in touch!
We can assist you with your application in-clinic (by appointment only) or provide you with more information to help you determine which payment option is best for you. Please be aware we do not provide accounts.
