Using ultrasonic equipment and dental radiography to keep your pets mouths healthy
In one location all your pets are welcome. We offer consultations by appointment at the hospital and have dedicated consulting rooms specific to your pet's needs. Comfort for you and your pet is so important to us and that is why our dedicated spaces have been designed in a way to minimise some of the stresses that you worry about when you go to the vet.

Can't get transport to the vets?
Find it too stressful for you or your pet to travel?
Have more than one pet to be looked at?
Why not take advantage of our House Call service, where we can come to you in the comfort of your own home. We schedule visits for all animals so not just our large sheep, goats and horses but we understand that sometimes it is easier for your dogs, cats and everything in between as well. This is also a service that is taken up during those sensitive times when you want to be at home and not stress your pet out too.
You can also take advantage of reduced travel cost by putting your name down on our house call runs where we visit multiple households on the one day.
While we take care of most needs for your pet on house calls, some procedures are limited to what we have in our work vehicles and in some cases, it will be advised that a hospital visit is more suitable.
Our regular house Call runs are posted on our Facebook page and you can make an appointment for a house call by calling the hospital and also gain more information if you have any questions.
Normal practice visits can be made through our booking button.

Do you know if the food your pet is eating is totally balanced? Is it nutritionally correct? Are you feeding the right amount?
Food is one of the pleasures in life that can also play an important role in our pet's health. Our team is trained in nutrition to assist with your pet's dietary needs at every stage of your pet’s life. We understand the as they grow their needs change.
A correct diet can complement/alleviate medical conditions such as diabetes, kidney disease, arthritis and more.
Dental health is a daily thing for us, right?
We brush/ floss/ rinse our teeth multiple times a day. So, what about our pets?
Smelly breath is normal?
Dental disease can be fixed and early signs can be reversed. It is amazing how much happier a pet can be with a healthy mouth. A tooth ache is unbearable for us and it is the same for them. The mouth is a gateway to the rest of our body and build up on teeth known as tartar harbours bacteria that can find its way into the bloodstream, affecting organs such as the heart, kidneys and even the brain.
We have lots of dental solutions you can fit into your lifestyle and with the best interest of your pet to minimise dental disease.
Like us, our pet's will benefit from professionally cleaned teeth. This will help prevent serious dental disease which can have implications on the overall health of your pet.
Our professional cleaning is done with our ultrasonic cleaner and polisher. At Somersby Animal Hospital we use dental radiography to make sure we don't miss any underlying dental problems. Our extra care and continued support will keep a smile on your pet's face!
