Welcome to Greencross Vets North Ringwood
We have a special understanding of the bond you have developed with your pet. We will do everything we can to be caring, friendly and informative. We aspire to provide the highest standards of veterinary practice.
Please feel free to have a look around our extensive site - sign up for our monthly newsletter, meet the team, learn how to share the good times with your pet and explore the pet info pages to find an answer to that troublesome pet problem.The North Ringwood team members are focussed on ensuring the best health outcome for your pet.
These are longer than usual to allow us to establish a clear understanding of your pet’s health issues and your concerns. Together we can arrange the most suitable plan for your particular situation. Our experienced diagnosticians utilise in-house and external laboratory services, use established relationships with referring specialists when necessary and attend continuing professional development to keep current with the latest medical and clinical innovations.
We use our in-house laboratory equipment to check for parasites, fungus and yeasts, and perform urine analysis, bloodwork and cell examination. Other samples are submitted to Gribbles Veterinary Pathology for more extensive testing and analysis. The North Ringwood team encourage you to have regular blood screens taken for your pets. This allows a “normal” to be documented and may highlight any emerging problems that have yet to exhibit recognisable symptoms. Kidney, liver and other organ function can be assessed prior to anaesthetic to allow the most appropriate anaesthesia to be administered.
Surgery and Treatments
Orthopaedic and soft-tissue surgery is performed in our theatre utilising a range of contemporary surgical, anaesthetic and monitoring instruments and equipment. The experienced surgical team members work closely together to give constant attention to your pet through all anaesthetic stages and into the recovery period. Patients are kept warm and comfortable throughout and peri-operative pain management and intravenous fluid therapy is initiated for each surgical case. Dental and non-surgical procedures are performed using the latest equipment and trained empathetic personnel.
We have an extensive range of support initiatives so that together with you, we can surmount those significant periods in your pet's life:
Environmental enrichment toys and advice
Senior and palliative care programs
Weight loss programs
Premium and prescription pet foods
Deluxe and attentive cat boarding
