Yorkshire Terrier at the Vet

 consults / health exams / annual visits

Better care begins by listening to our clients. We cannot stress how important you are in providing us with a history of how your pet is acting at home. With these clues and a thorough physical exam we can discuss prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases. It is important for your pet's overall health to have a yearly physical exam.

The veterinarian will check your pet’s ears, eyes, teeth, skin and hair & coat, and listen to their heart and lungs. This information is recorded and can be compared to past exams to see how your pet's health is progressing with age.



Our pets rely on us for healthy and content lives. Therefore, we are responsible for their well-being and the upkeep of their vaccinations. Many of the serious diseases of dogs can be prevented by vaccination. Vaccination is inexpensive protection against costly treatment or even premature death of your dog. After the initial vaccination course,

four injections 4 weeks apart, it is recommended that your pet is vaccinated every 12 months. The vaccination also includes a general health check.

Vet Examining Dog


The whole procedure takes just a few seconds. A small capsule, the size of a grain of rice, containing the animal's unique registration number is simply inserted under the skin at the back of the animal's neck. The microchip number can be read via a handheld scanner. Vets, the S.P.C.A. and pet rescue centers all have suitable microchip scanners. The name and address details relating to the microchip number are all stored on a national database. If your pet becomes lost it can easily be identified and its owner contacted.

Every pet or animal traveling internationally must comply with the specific set of veterinary requirements, prior to departure, pertinent to their destination country. The length of veterinary preparations can take weeks or even months, it all depends on your destination countries requirements. Some countries only require a microchip and a rabies vaccination but others might require a microchip, a rabies vaccination and a rabies Titre blood test which entails a 3 months waiting period.  For full details on pet relocation visit

Radiography serves as one of the most common diagnostic tools in veterinary medicine.

At Honeydew Animal Clinic, we use an enhanced digital X-ray unit to examine a pet’s internal structures, including the bones, heart, lungs, abdomen, and other areas.

This technology allows us to diagnose a number of conditions, including fractures, foreign bodies, and tumours.

X-rays provide real-time results, in a manner that is less stressful for your pet. 



Animal owners are increasingly keen to ensure that examinations, treatment and if necessary surgery for the animal patient is performed as atraumatically as possible. Endoscopy is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the examiner to look within an organ or body cavity and gain diagnostic information, which includes grossly evaluating an area of interest and obtaining tissue for histopathologic evaluation.



Honeydew Animal Clinic offers state of the art medical technology.
Ultrasound examinations are non-invasive evaluations of the structure of your dog or cat’s internal organs. This diagnostic tool is accurate and pain-free. Our veterinarians use ultrasounds to determine if there are possible abnormalities in your pet’s liver, kidney and other organs, and to detect any stones, or tumours that may not be visible on radiographs.
