During the basic consultation, our vet will be checking on your pet’s vitals such as auscultation of the heart and lungs, checking of the body score card (BCS), skin and fur, eyes and ears. If any procedures are required, i.e. ear cleaning or irrigation, anal gland expression, eye examination, etc., additional costs are applicable.
This is a routine vaccination performed on adult cats on a yearly basis. For kittens, it would be advised to start them on their routine vaccinations from 2 months old onwards, having another booster vaccination one month later before it becomes an annual routine. This vaccination covers Feline Rhinotracheitis (Cat herpes), Feline Calicivirus, Feline Panleukopenia (Feline Infectious Enteritis/Feline Distemper) and Chlamydia Psittaci (Feline Chlamydiosis)
· Feline Rhinotracheitis · Calici · Panleukopenia · Chlamydia Psittaci
Hospitalisation would be required if your pet’s condition is critical or requires treatment that can only be done clinically. Therefore, we provide hospitalisation for such cases, though it is to note that we are not a 24-hour clinic. For patients that require intensive round the clock care, we would advise clinics or hospitals that offer these services. Hospitalised patients would be given the needed therapies and treatments, such as intravenous fluid therapy, procedural support feeding, seizure watch and glucose curve among others. We provide hospitalisation services for most animals, including dogs, cats, rabbits, hamsters and birds.
Small Animal Hospitalisation
Visiting hours for hospitalised pets will be between 12 noon to 8pm in the evening on all weekdays except Tuesdays (the clinic’s closing day), and 12 noon to 4pm on weekends, unless in cases of emergency.
All updates on discharge will be given after 12 noon as the pet’s discharge status can only be determined after the morning rounds are done.
Please leave behind TWO contact numbers in case of an emergency, so that we may contact you as soon as possible.
HOUSE CALL SERVICE
At My Family Vet, we do offer house call service, however it will be dependent on the availability of the vet, the condition of the pet, as well as the location. Please take note that the fee stated below is not inclusive of any medication and the consultation.
We provide a comprehensive radiography service that is performed by the DynaVue radiograph machine, a veterinary radiography machine that has both digital radiography and fluoroscopy for a better diagnosis of your pet’s condition. With digital radiography, you will be able to obtain an X-ray image of your pet and the doctor would be able to diagnose any abnormalities that she happens to note in the image. Mainly, digital radiography is used for diagnosing conditions such as foreign body obstruction, bone structure, heart size, etc.
As for fluoroscopy, it is a non-invasive test that would use an X-ray beam to pass through the body continues to create moving pictures, allowing the doctor to see the movement of the internal organs in real-time. Fluoroscopy is usually done to perform procedures such as treating urethral and colonic obstructive disease, contrast studies of the gastrointestinal tract, and performing minimally invasive fracture repair.
We provide ultrasound services for pets in need of it. As it is a non-invasive imaging technique that allows internal bodily structures to be seen via reflection ultrasonic waves, it can be alternative option for conditions that can be harder to diagnose from radiography alone. Ultrasound examinations are usually performed to diagnose conditions such as tumours and pregnancy.
There are different types of ultrasounds that we perform, including echocardiogram, which is the ultrasound of the heart that helps to diagnose certain heart diseases, full abdominal ultrasound, where we scan the whole abdominal cavity, and more specific ultrasound on different regions, such as the pelvic region.
