When your animal is sick, it is essential to know that they are in good hands with someone who cares. Lismore Veterinary Clinic provides a full range of quality veterinary services for both small and large animals in a caring, modern and well equipped hospital.
Small Animal Services
Our Small Animal Services include:
Extensive Surgery Capabilities
We have the expertise and equipment to offer our clients a comprehensive surgery service in both orthopedic and soft tissue areas.
Our vets are competent in many surgeries, which are often only performed at 'specialist' centers, such as bone plating, radiation treatment of skin cancers and extensive plastic surgery corrections.
We also have a fully equipped equine surgery and recovery area which enables us to carry out a broad range of operations on horses. If we are unable to perform any surgery at our hospital, we wont hesitate to refer our patients to the relevant specialists.
Our x-ray facilities and expertise allow us to provide a wide rang of radiology services including plain x-rays and more advanced contrast studies.
Skin diseases are a common and persistent problem in small animals. Sometimes the correct therapy is quick and easy and sometimes it requires ongoing therapy but no matter what the problem the first place to start is with a diagnosis. We always make that extra effort to find out what the underlying skin problem is. With simple tests like skin scrapings, woods lamp scanning and cytology preparations we can perform them during a consultation but for more advanced techniques such as biopsy, intradermal allergy testing and elimination trials, we might need more time.
The important thing is that we are as committed as you to helping your pets back to healthy skin.
Our air dental unit enables us to not only provide the standard service of scaling, polishing and extractions at a very high standard but also means we can perform more advanced procedures such as root cannel therapy and crown reconstructions.
We offer a full reproductive service from infertility work, artificial insemination for dogs, pregnancy diagnosis using ultrasound and management through to birth.
Our 24-hour emergency service means we are always there at this critical time to provide assistance with delivery or, if necessary, caesarian section.
We also can help with care of newborn animals plus rearing and weaning.
Behaviour problems can be as bad for you and your pet as accidents and illness. Whether its aggression, inappropriate urination in the house or any other problem, we can help with treatment and training.
Behaviour problems are very common, so don't be embarrassed to ask for some advice.
Whether it be for a growing puppy, a lactating mother or just a healthy adult, we can advise you and supply the best diets available. Special nutrition is also available for animals with illnesses that can be managed by diet. We also offer a free weight loss clinic and programme for those dogs and cats out there that can't keep their waist in line in check.

Euthanasia and Burial
Sadly the time may come in your pet's life, when they are too unwell or in too much pain to carry on. Euthanasia is a gentle and peaceful alternative, but we realize it is a very hard time to face. We know how hard it is to say goodbye and we endeavor to make this difficult circumstance as comfortable and tolerable as possible. We can also arrange for burial of your pet in a pleasant location, or if you rather, cremation is available.
