Services for your Dogs/Cats/Birds/Pocket Pets

Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:

Caring and Compassionate Staff:  All of the staff at Waterworks Road Vet Surgery are well trained in animal handling and genuinely care about the health and wellbeing of your pet.

Surgical Services:  Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. One of our vets has a particular interest in orthopedic surgeries, including patella luxation surgery and cruciate surgery (D'Angelis procedure). Dr Ron Woodhead is experienced in Avian surgery.
