Vaccinations are one of the most important preventative measures you can take to protect your pet against viral and bacterial diseases.
During a consultation, the vet will discuss any concerns (or health issues) that you have about the wellbeing of your pet and explain in detail what can be done to help your pet live the best life possible.
Taking care of your pet’s teeth is as important as looking after your own. Without proper dental care, your pet is at risk of tooth loss, abscesses, and more serious bacterial infections affecting the heart, liver and kidneys.
Dr Frank Kettner heads up our specialist medicine unit which provides the group with additional expert care requirements for cases like diseases of the heart, abdomen, glandular systems, chest, skin, brain and nervous system, as well as cancer treatment.
In addition to general veterinary surgery in all our practices, Bellville’s special surgical clinic is headed by Dr Ian Campbell. The surgical unit conducts advanced soft tissue surgery (e.g. open chest surgery), neurosurgery (relating to the central nervous system) and orthopaedic (e.g. fractures) surgery.
Besides vaccinations and consultations, our skilled TAH veterinarians also perform routine surgeries in all our hospitals located in our practices.
TAH has the only veterinary Blood Bank in the Western Cape, assisting pets needing blood transfusions for many procedures and emergencies.
Physical rehabilitation is something TAH Bellville and Peninsula Vet have made a part of their patients’ healing process. Our goal is to assist patients and their owners by providing rehabilitation and therapy following surgery, illness or injury, thus improving mobility and relieving pain.
The impact of good socialising on a puppy’s development is profound, as well-socialised puppies are less likely to develop various behavioural problems later on in life. TAH’s puppy classes are run by a veterinary nurse and animal behaviourist at TAH Bellville and Peninsula Vet. All pups between 8 and 14 weeks are welcome.
