Many specialist veterinary services are available for Christchurch pets if the need arises. For complicated cases, especially surgical cases, we can offer referral to a registered specialist for consultation and treatment.
Services available include:
- Advanced surgery at Vetspecs in Christchurch. We offer and organise referral for more complicated procedures such as : Spinal Surgery, Chest Surgery, difficult orthopedic cases, MRI and CT scans. Follow up visits are usually done at our clinic in Kaiapoi
- Ultrasound referrals. We have access to ultrasound services performed by Dr Richard Lucy who is a highly skilled veterinary (and human) ultrasonographer. He offers an excellent imaging service which can include ultrasound guided needle biopsies.
- Medical Case referrals- for clients willing to travel to the North Island , the services of the Massey University Veterinary Teaching Hospital (MUVTH) are available
- X Ray referrals- with digital X Rays, it is a very simple and cost effective option to get second opinions on X Rays. We can often get an answer back within 12-24 hours.
