Caring for all creatures
Our team of experienced veterinary surgeons and nurses are devoted to the well-being of your pet. We treat every patient as if it were our own. We all truly love what we do and want you and your pet to feel comforted and cared for.
In our purpose-built hospital we offer complete surgical, medical, and hospital facilities all from our West Pymble location at Philip Mall. With in-house laboratory for fast results and on-site diagnostic tools such as digital radiology, ultrasound and endoscopy you can have peace of mind that your pet is well cared for.
What we do
Periodontal disease is the number one disease affecting our pet’s mouths after the age of two. Bad breath is the most common sign! This damage can be reversed by your veterinarian with a proper dental cleaning or “prophy”. Most pet owners think that “doggy or kitty” breath is normal. Book your pet in today for a “free dental check” and we can assess if a cleaning procedure is required.
Vaccinations provide protection against key viruses that cause severe or even life-threatening illness. At this time we perform an annual health check for your pet. One year is a long time in a pet’s life. Not visiting the vet for a year is comparable to a person not visiting a doctor for 7 years! This is an opportunity for your Veterinarian to perform a thorough examination of your pet and for you to discuss any concerns, questions or abnormalities that may have arisen in the previous 12 months.
One of Dr Martines passions is chemotherapy. Having had an abundance of experience with this whilst working as a Medical Registrar at Sydney University Veterinary Teaching Hospital we are fortunate to have her experience here at Pymble Vet Clinic. The bond we have with our chemotherapy patients is truly special and we thrive on giving pet owners more quality time with their pets. Chemotherapy is often quite different from the chemotherapy we hear about in humans. With often no or minimal side effects we can prolong and improve your pets quality of life.
Desexing has health benefits – it helps to minimise the risk of cancers of the reproductive organs and mammary glands in females, and reduces the incidence of prostate problems and testicular cancer in males. These procedures are usually performed at 4-6 months of age. Desexed pets are less likely to roam, urine-mark their territory, or display excessive sexual or aggressive behaviour. Your pet will stay in hospital with us for the day. Please phone our friendly staff for more information or to book you pet in for this procedure.
Our Veterinarians are highly qualified in all medical matters. A physical examination of your pet can often tell us a lot however if more information is required we can run blood tests in house for quick results. Our advanced diagnostic tools such as endoscopy, digital radiology and ultrasound can also be performed on-site when further investigations are required.
In addition to routine surgeries such as desexing and dentistry we can perform a multitude of other procedures from simple lump removals to advanced surgical procedures and orthopaedics. Our wonderful surgical nurses are committed to the best recovery for your patients and with high quality anaesthetic monitoring equipment you can have peace of mind that your pet is in good hands. In the treatment room your pets recovery will be monitored careful and pain relief provided in line with the highest care and standards.

TICK SEASON ALERT
The deadly paralysis tick is in the Pymble area.
Although tick season has traditionally been thought of as September through to April, recent studies have revealed that 23% of tick cases actually occurred in winter in 2018. This is quite alarming! Fortunately however with our latest tick preventions we can keep our pets safer than ever before. We recommend Bravecto and offer a special loyalty service with great savings and also send you SMS reminders to help you keep your pet up-to-date!
