Animal Care bvba - Vets small and large domestic animals

At our practice we have three ultrasound devices. One is a very large device which renders very sharp images but cannot be moved. Therefore, this device is especially destined to pets. The other two devices are movable and can therefore be deployed with horses, cattle, sheep etc.

An endoscope is a flexible fibreglass tube which enables us to check the inside of certain organs through a light source and a lens.

Our endoscope is so thin (9 mm) that it allows us to look into the stomach of even small dogs in order to see if they have swallowed an object or to track stomach and intestinal diseases.

A microscope allows us to investigate tissues we collect with the endoscope or with a thin needle biopsy during an examination.

To do this, we puncture a tumour for example with a thin needle and after colouring the collected material we can already get an idea about the nature of the tumour and its malignancy.

If you want to keep your pet healthy it is really important to have its teeth checked. Just like yourself, your animal needs to go the “dentist” regularly. A regular check (every two years) of your animal´s teeth is no unnecessary luxury.

The radiography device allows us to track plenty of disorders in your pet, ranging from broken bones to tumours.

We have the disposal of a digital radiography device which allows for the images to be shown directly on the screen of a laptop, without the need of developing them.

In order to anaesthetize your favourite pet for an operation or dental care we have the disposal of two gas anaesthetics devices at the practice, as well as a whole series of monitoring devices to monitor all the functions of your animal during its sleep.

These devices allow us to anaesthetize even very old animals and animals with heart conditions as safe as possible and to perform operations or dental care.

Dogs can be neutered just before the first heat or three months after each heat. That they first need to have a nest of puppies is a fable.

The advantage of spaying is that the bitch does not get in heat again and that there is no more blood loss in the house. Moreover, the probability of developing uterine tumours, ovary tumours and mammary gland tumours diminishes considerably.

If you do not wish to have several nests of kittens every year you should have your cat spayed.

This is the safest method to avoid having kittens, and the cheapest in the long run. The cat pill is very unsafe. Imagine your cat vomiting after taking that pill, or that you forget giving it and before you know you have four to eight kittens on your hands.
