Wet Noses delivers a market leading mobile veterinary service. Our vet will arrive at your home in one of our fully equipped vans. As you would expect when you visit your local vet, we provide a thorough consultation and carry the tools, equipment and technology to perform the relevant exams and diagnostic tests.

At Wet Noses, our aim is become your regular local vet, giving your beloved pets the in-home attention they deserve.

Vaccinations

Regular and scheduled vaccinations are critical in the healthy life of your pet. Vaccinations prevent some serious diseases which may be either fatal or cause ongoing medical complications for your pet.

Puppies and kittens are particularly vulnerable to disease and as such it is vital to ensure that vaccinations are carried out to protect your new pet from serious disease. There are a range of different, required vaccinations for puppies, dogs, kittens and cats.

We will visit your home to administer all scheduled vaccinations, and this also provides a great opportunity to check on the general health and wellbeing of your pet.

Heartworm Prevention

Never worry about missing a monthly heartworm treatment again.

Heart worm is a fatal parasitic disease that is spread by Mosquitos – therefore ALL pets are at risk of this disease. There are various methods to prevent heartworm.

The yearly heart worm injection is a convenient and easy treatment – you’ll never have to worry about remembering when the monthly heartworm treatment is due. There are several other products, used on a monthly basis, that will also aid in the prevention of heartworm disease.

Our Wet Noses Vet will tailor a heartworm prevention program that will best suit your pet.  Your pet may require a heartworm test prior to starting a prevention program, followed by a repeat test 6 months after commencing. Our vets will provide you the best, relevant advice in this area.

Health and Wellness Checks

In some instances, your pet may risk picking up a disease when you take them out of the house to visit your local vet – especially puppies and kittens who are in the early stages of building their immune systems.

You want to ensure your pet is healthy and happy, so it’s critical to get your much-loved pet checked by a vet on a regular basis. As with our own health, the key is early detection and prevention.

At a minimum, an annual pet health check is strongly advised. After all, we all want our pets to live health, happy, pain-free and long lives.

Microchip Implantation

Every year in Australia, more than 100,000 cats and dogs are misplaced – either lost, injured and unbelievably, even stolen. Sadly for many of these animals, they are unable to be reunited with their owners as they are not easily identified.

Registration is required for all domestic cats and dogs in the Gold Coast and Surrounds, and we believe microchipping should also be considered compulsory, as it’s the only guaranteed way to permanently link your animal to you.

Microchipping is a short, painless procedure that involves the insertion of a small microchip (about the size of a rice grain) under the skin, between the shoulder blades of your pet.

A simple microchip can help ensure your missing animal is returned to you.

Arthritis Check-Ups and Treatment Programs

Just as we do, our pets age and become more prone to certain ailments such as osteoarthritis. This condition can be difficult for the untrained eye to pick up, so it’s important that your animal is checked on a regular basis.

If your animal appears to be lethargic, is sensitive when touched, hesitates to do activity it would otherwise have enjoyed, or generally is lacking the mobility it used to have – it could be suffering from an illness that requires attention. Cold weather can often exacerbate the illness.

As with all illnesses, early identification, prevention and proactive management can help your pet live a much longer, happier and pain-free life.

Dental Check-Ups

Dental disease is a growing concern in our pets and can lead to pain, inflammation and general discomfort. Dental disease often goes unnoticed by pet owners.  Dental disease affects the way your pet feeds, and in turn has a broader detrimental affect on their overall health and wellbeing.

Harmful bacteria resulting from dental disease can also lead to further complications such as organ damage and general ill health.

We can examine your pet’s teeth on a regular basis and if necessary, recommend a professional dental clean.

We will also provide you with advice on how to minimise the risk of dental disease and how to best look after your pet’s teeth.

Pet Insurance Processing

We will ensure you have the relevant paperwork required to be able to immediately submit your claim form.

If you don’t have a claim form on hand, we will be able to quickly supply you with one from your relevant insurance provider.
