Do you have an older pet?
As the years progress, our body shows signs of ageing. It’s the same for our pets, who age even faster than we do!
It’s that time of year where, at Tropical Vet Services, we spend a little extra attention to our Senior Pets.
To raise awareness of common diseases that affect our older pets, we have a special promotion, for the months of May and June, for all pets aged 7 years and older.
* 10% discount on blood testing
* 4 Zydax injections for the price of 3 (25% off).
ZYDAX® is the leading innovation in osteoarthritis management. Unlike anti-inflammatories which tend to treat the symptoms of osteoarthritis, ZYDAX® targets the progression of the disease.
Regular check-ups for our senior pets are vital in helping identify early signs of common diseases like
Early detection (sometimes with the help of blood tests) allows early intervention and a better outcome for our furry companions.
...An important message about COVID-19...
Your local vet, Tropical Vet Services, has always taken the health of our clients (and naturally, their animals!), employees, visitors and community seriously.
We understand this is a very difficult and stressful time for everybody but for Tropical Vet Services to continue our care for your animals; for their regular or emergency surgery, to be available after-hours as well as our professional care day to day at each clinic, we need to take care of our veterinarian and nurse staff, too!
The risk: if a staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19 then our clinic would be put into quarantine and this would prevent us from providing any care to our patients from this clinic.
In the interest of public health, we ask that you please do not enter our clinic if:
- You have returned from overseas within the last 14 days.
- You have knowingly been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus (COVID-19) or has returned from overseas within the last 14 days; or
- You have a fever or flu-like symptoms.
If you are feeling unwell, or to better protect your health, do not wish to enter our clinic, PLEASE let us know over the phone as you make your appointment, so we can make arrangements to meet you at your car / in the car park.
We still want to see, treat and care for your pet; it just means we need to take some extra precautions.
We can also discuss consultation options for any existing clients that have been quarantined or are high risk.
By all working together we WILL be able to continue to offer you the top quality care you are accustomed to from our family-run business.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
