Reception / Waiting room
Thanks to our short waiting times we are able to care for your pets as soon as possible. Upon arrival please check-in at the reception where our knowledgeable staff can answer most questions, don’t be afraid to ask! If this is your first visit at our clinic you’ll be asked to fill out a registration form with your and your pets personal information. After registration feel free to have a seat in our waiting room until you’re called up by one of the veterinarians who will take you to a consulting room. We can also handle insurance claims directly with your insurance provider.
We offer basic prophylactic care for your pet so they can be well.
• Claw clippings

• Diet counselling
We decide together after the base examination if it is necessary to take X-rays of your pet. X-ray is a incredibly useful diagnostic tool in many cases, be they disease or injury, it also complements ultrasound really well. Organs in the chest and stomach cavities can be studied in detail, for example: the heart, lungs, kidneys or intestines. The skeleton and tendons lend themselves the best to X-ray examinations, fractures and tendon abnormalities.
Using the ultrasound we can for example examine: • The kidneys and the urinary tract
• The liver
• The testicles and prostate
• The uterus and ovaries
• The pancreas
The one responsible for carrying out ultrasound examinations is Piotr, he’s had many years of experience and has performed thousands of examinations. We offer a pregnancy check-up using the ultrasound where not only do you check if the bitch is pregnant but also count the expected number of fetuses and calculate the delivery date (+/- 24 hours) Piotr uses biometric measures of the fetuses to calculate the delivery date. For best results we recommend that the ultrasound checkup be 28 – 30 days after the last mating occasion.
New at the clinic: medical laser therapy for animals. Medical laser is used to great effect and no side effects in prophylactic and clinical treatment. We use highly specialised equipment to treat your pets, laser therapy is relaxing and does not hurt in the slightest.
Laser therapy works in a anti inflammatory way as well as increasing the blood flow to the treated area which encourages the healing process on a cellular level. The convalescence period can be shortened by up to 50% while partaking in laser therapy.
Laser therapy is recommended among other uses as pain relief in both acute and chronic conditions.
The laser can among other things be used for:
• Treatment of wounds
• Joint, tendon and muscle problems
• Strain injuries
• Problems with mucus membranes.
We perform the majority of tests in our in house laboratory. We analyse a large quantity of tests every single day. We perform biochemistry, hematology, urin tests, cytology, microbiological cultivating, (taken from skin, ears, urine etc) which includes a antibiogram and some hormonal analyses (e.g progesterone). You’ll get the results for the majority of these tests on the same day as they’re performed. Other tests such as allergy screenings and tissue samples (Histopathology)get sent to specialised laboratories.
Our veterinarians perform a variety of surgical procedures daily, some of which include:
• Removal of umbilical hernias
• Cherry eye operations
• Removal of bladder stones
• Ceasarean sections
Something new we can offer at the clinic is laser surgery.
This form of surgery offers lessened swelling, pain and bleeding during and after the procedure. Laser surgery can for example be used to remove skin tumours or during castrations
Something else we can do using laser surgery is to widen the nostrils on dogs with breathing problems, click here to see a video of it in action.
We offer a stationary care ward where patients can get treated during the day, generally we try to avoid having animals staying the night at the clinic as we believe they are better off if they can get the treatment they need during the day and then be able to spend the night in a familiar environment. In our experience avoiding the stress of staying the night at the clinic aids more in their recovery than what we can offer them during the night. In rare cases where 24 – hour care is necessary we’ll stay the night at the clinic.
