Our state-of-the art laboratory enables us to perform the most comprehensive range of blood tests available in-house as well as parasitology and microbiology so that no disease goes undetected.

We provide an in-house service for ultrasonography and orthopaedic surgery or if you prefer, your pet can be referred to experts in their field. This offers you the reassurance that your loved ones are under the care of a veterinarian they know and trust whilst avoiding the stress of transporting their fur-children up to Sydney for specialist care.

HIGHlands Veterinary Hospital also stocks a complete range of preventative health products for fleas, ticks, heartworm and intestinal worms as well as the highest quality canine and feline food. Our nursing staff are fully trained to provide professional advice regarding nutrition and preventative health care for pets of all ages.

HIGHlands Veterinary Hospital offers clients exclusive membership to Senior Pet Wellness Plans. For a monthly fee, members enjoy annual vaccination, annual in-house blood testing, annual heart-worm testing, annual faecal analysis, urinalysis and as well as many other health ‘necessities’. This gives huge peace of mind to the owner of every senior pet. This is the perfect way to budget for your pet’s annual health requirements and eliminates many of the barriers for pet owners needing peace of mind that their loved one is OK. This often results in earlier detection of disease and earlier intervention which usually means a better prognosis and outcome for our patients!

Choosing a Great Vet
Finding a good Veterinary practice for your pet can be a daunting task. How can you judge their standard of patient care? How can you judge their knowledge and expertise? Will they treat your pet with warmth and tenderness or have they become desensitised to the stress that many pets experience when visiting the vet? Will they take the time to explain things clearly and in a way anyone can understand? Learn more about some useful tips to help you make the right choice for you and your loved one here.

PennHIP Radiography

PennHIP stands for Pennsylvania Hip Improvement Program. It is a technique of radiographing animals’ hips developed at the University of Pennsylvania to determine the degree of laxity (how loose they are). It has been used for over 20 years to measure hip laxity and to help predict the possible development of hip dysplasia in dogs. Learn more here.

Shopping around for veterinary services can be a worthwhile exercise. However, there are some important considerations when deciding on the right practice for you. Learn more here.
Senior Pet Wellness Plans
When your pet reaches the ‘golden years’ of life, it’s time to celebrate!
Just as our bodies complain a little more as we grow older, the same is typically true for our pets. And just like us, diagnosing and treating geriatric conditions early offers the best chance for successful outcomes.

That’s why we believe in screening for geriatric diseases as our pets age because the reasons to do so are compelling. Learn more here.

Vaccinations

Vaccinations are important in helping protect your pets from many common diseases. They do this by inducing an immune response by the body to a safe version of the injected virus administered through vaccines. Learn more here.
