Health Packages, January 2014

Fantastic Value Health Packages for Dogs and Cats at Gawler South Vets!

At Gawler South Vets, we’ve created a series of health packages for both dogs and cats and these represent great value for pet owners. Our puppy and kitten packages include all of the things we’d recommend for your new pet but at a heavily discounted price. We’ve done this as we’d like to see you get your pet off on the right foot (paw?) and make sure we’ve covered all of the major health issues we see in pups and kittens. The packages include vaccinations, parasite control (‘worming’, heartworm and fleas), de-sexing (speys or castrations) and puppy training (puppy pre-school). They also include introductory insurance and premium growth diet

We also have a senior wellness package which allows us to give you a good snapshot of your pet’s health. A number of diseases crop up in older dogs and cats and we’d rather find out about these sooner than later. This allows us to get started with treatment before things get out of hand. The senior package includes blood testing, urinalysis, blood pressure measurements, a thyroid test and a full general health check. Again, we’ve discounted this heavily to encourage owners to be proactive about their pets’ health, and we see the benefits of this on a regular basis – happier pets with longer lives!

For further information or to take up one of these packages for your pet, give us a call on 8522 3500 and we can arrange an appointment to have this done as soon as possible.
