Vaccinations are one of the most important preventative measures you can take to protect your pet from viral and bacterial diseases.
In a consultation, the vet will discuss with you 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 for tooth loss, abscesses, and more serious bacterial infections affecting the heart, liver and kidneys.
Dr Frank Kettner heads up our medicine specialist centre 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 and cancer treatment.
In addition to general veterinary surgery in all our practices, Bellville’s special surgical clinic is headed by Dr Ian Campbell and assisted by Dr Jurgens Van Zyl. The surgical unit conducts advanced soft tissue (e.g. open chest surgery), neurosurgery (relating to the central nervous system) and orthopaedic (e.g. fractures).
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 has now 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, and thus improving mobility, relieving pain and return to function more rapidly.
The impact of a good socialising school on a puppy’s development is profound. 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. Well-socialised puppies are less likely to develop various behavioural problems later on in life.
