Greencross Vets Silkstone is a full-service facility dedicated to providing the highest quality medical, surgical and dental care for our patients. From routine vaccinations and wellness exams to comprehensive internal medicine and surgical care, we are prepared to meet any health care needs which arise for your pet.
Consulting hours are available in the morning and evening to allow for the examination and treatment of outpatients as well as for the admission and discharge of hospitalised patients. The hours between these consulting sessions are devoted to the treatment of hospitalised cases, surgical operations, radiography, ultrasound and other diagnostic procedures. If a problem does arise during these hours, please do not hesitate to telephone. Veterinary attention is always available during these hours to see urgent cases.
How do we ensure happy clients?
Dedicated staff team: Our veterinarians and nurses all work in the vet industry because we are passionate about caring for animals. All are highly trained and very happy to answer any questions which may arise about the health and wellbeing of your pet. For more information about our caring team, visit our staff page.
Extended opening hours: We know that work, family and life commitments can sometimes make it difficult to make it into the vet hospital. That’s why we have recently extended our hours so that we are open until 8pm Monday to Friday and 5pm on the weekends. We hope that these flexible hours enable you to visit the clinic at a time more convenient to you.
Preventative medicine: We provide a full range of services from new pet checks to annual vaccinations, geriatric animal assessment to nutrition advice. In addition we stock a full range of flea, tick, intestinal worm and heart worm prevention. Our staff is always happy to provide advice on the best products for your pets.
Full range of surgery: As well as routine surgical procedures, our vets are experienced in performing a wide range of complex surgeries including orthopaedic, soft-tissue and dental surgery. These services allow us to treat your pet in-house, therefore reducing its time in pain and sending it on a speedier road to recovery.
House calls: During the week, vets are available for house calls to clients living locally and can transport pets to and from the clinic for a small fee. This is a helpful service to access if you’re unable to bring your pet into the clinic for any reason. Just call us to arrange a time.
In-house laboratory and comprehensive diagnostic equipment: We provide a comprehensive range of in-house blood tests which allow us to immediately obtain results for many conditions. This also means that we are able to perform many screening tests for earlier detection of disease. We also have the latest digital x-ray equipment and a brand new ultrasound machine. This means that for many cases we can diagnose cases in-house at the early stage in response to your pet’s health needs.
Puppy pre-school: Our 4 week course not only gives owners a basis for further training, but helps with some of the behavioral teething problems of owning a new puppy. As our program is run by fully trained nursing staff, there is also excellent advice and information on important health issues for your dog.
