Each cat is an individual and the small changes can sometime make a huge difference to the wellbeing of a patient.

Our wide range of services will benefit your cat because your pet will be able to receive the latest diagnostic tests right here in Baldivis. Our veterinarians are focussed on achieving optimum outcomes for your pets. We can handle everything from a cat bite to a complex medical issue.
If you are concerned regarding the health of your cat, please let us examine your cat and work from there.
The consulting veterinarian will listen to your concerns, examine your pet and discuss the various options involved in getting your pet back to normal health. We have an onsite laboratory so you can receive blood samples can be processed in a timely manner.
Keeping Your Cat Healthy
Pets age much more quickly than humans, one year for your cat is equal to 7 humans years with very rapid maturation of your pet in the first year.
Annual health checks are essential as your pet moves quickly through the various stages in life. The Annual health check involves a physical examination, dental check up, heart/lung check, flea control, gastrointestinal parasites, vaccinations (as required) and setting a healthcare plan for the coming year.
From seven years, a blood and urine test for kidney disease are recommended plus a biannual check up. If you have delayed the annual health check for any reason, then simple start the process by having your pet examined and set a healthcare plan for the next year.

Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV) and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) may be spread by cat bites.
Most cats are at risk of being bitten by other cats at some time in their life so we recommend vaccination against these viruses.
The FIV vaccination has only recently become available and many older cats are not vaccinated for this disease.
We recommend all cats are vaccinated with a Fe6 vaccine and this vaccination includes FeLV and FIV.
We are a 24 Hour Emergency Hospital open 7 days a week. If you are ever in doubt, concerned or you have an emergency…
COME STRAIGHT DOWN!
What do I do if my cat is unwell or injured?
The first step in helping an unwell cat is to get a diagnosis. The first step in this process is a consultation and this may be followed by some diagnostic tests.
Laboratory tests are often very important in diagnosis of illness in cats because of the prevalence of feline leukaemia virus, feline immunodeficiency virus and renal failure.
Ultrasound is very useful to assist in the diagnosis of abdominal problems.
Baldivis Vet Hospital has digital x-rays. The images from the digital x-rays help the vets in the diagnosis of various problems.
In some cases where the diagnosis is made on physical examination the response to medication is used as a semi diagnostic test.
The type of treatment required for a particular ailment will depend on the diagnosis.
Baldivis Vet Hospital is a well equipped hospital; we have live in carers and our Baldivis Emergency Vet whom are available 24/7 to care for our hospitalised patients and emergencies.
We have three surgeries and experienced surgeons who are able to carry out many advanced procedures. You can be sure you pet will be well cared for at Baldivis Vet Hospital.
