Full Service Laboratory — Give it to me straight Doc!
I have engaged the services of a leading veterinary laboratory in Cork to provide highly reliable, standardised (trust worthy), informative and cost effective laboratory services. All blood and tissue samples submitted to the lab will be reported upon via email within 24 hours. This enables me to make the best , most informed decisions about your animal's state of health.
Ultrasound — My window into a hidden world
Ultrasound emits sound-waves that are reflected from tissue and converted into electrical energy. The electrical energy is recorded and displayed on a monitor so that we may evaluate the internal organ architecture. Pets often do not need to be sedated for ultrasound, but hair is often clipped and your pet spends part of the day with us if necessary. I have extensive experience in pregnancy diagnosis and foetal evaluation using this exciting technology! A full abdominal ultrasound can be scheduled and performed at Mallow Vets at your request.
Permanent identification — Guess Who I am?
I offer microchip implantation at the owner’s request. The microchip can be placed during an appointment or during surgical procedures already scheduled to aid you in relocating your pet should they get lost. This form of identification is permanent proof of ownership, unlike collars that can be lost or broken. Microchip scanners are available to many local animal care and humane societies, allowing local authorities trace a stray pet back to their rightful owner.
Full access to specialists in many disciplines — Phone a friend for free!
If there is a diagnostic test, treatment or procedure required that may not be offered at my practice, I can defer to a wide network of specialists in the fields of dentistry, dermatology, internal medicine, orthopaedic or soft tissue surgery, ophthalmology, radiology ultrasounds and MRI. At Mallow Vets, my goal is to achieve the very best care for your beloved friend.
Who foots the bill?
My fees are highly competitive and I am ever mindful of the enormous financial pressure many may find themselves exposed to. Where the treatment or procedure proves costly, pet insurance may help lessen the burden on you, the pet owner. There are number of providers in the Irish market. Each will have it's own terms, conditions and exclusions; allow me to advise.
