Whether your pet needs their annual vaccination, has a sniffly nose, sore paw or just not quite looking right, the team at Riverport Veterinary Hospital in Goolwa and Victor Central Vets in Victor Harbor are happy to help. Our caring and professional vets are dedicated making sure your pet gets the best possible treatment. This will involve a full body examination but may also require blood tests, x-rays and/or ultrasound – all of which can be run in-clinic for fast results. Our consults typically run for 20 minutes. If you feel you may need a longer please let our friendly reception staff know so we can accommodate.
Yearly health checks and vaccinations are the cornerstone to keeping your fur-friend healthy and disease free! Because pets age so rapidly (seven times faster than humans!), we recommend annual health checks for dogs and cats under 7 years of age, with senior patients getting six-monthly visits. Regular checks allow us to pick up diseases such as diabetes, arthritis and heart disease earlier, and begin treatment promptly! Remember early detection, means early intervention! We are proud to offer our senior patients (over 7yrs old) the Senior Health Evaluation Program (SHEP), in which they receive a vet check, blood test and urine test for a heavily reduced price
The pet health checks we offer at both our Goolwa and Victor Harbour clinics include;
(Recommended for pets over 7 years of age)
We aim to make all our consults a ‘fear free’ experience for your pet. All rooms are well stocked with treats and have stress-relieving hormone diffusers to make your pet’s visit as positive as possible. Our hospital is even an accredited gold standard Cat Friendly Clinic.
