Small Animal Vet Care


Currently dental disease is one of the most undertreated diseases in our small animal companions. Just like humans our pets are vulnerable to gum disease and problems with their teeth. Alarmingly it is estimated that 80% of dogs and 70% of cats suffer from some form of dental disease by the age of 3. It is important for clients to note the dental disease is graded from ONE to FOUR. Grade ONE and TWO are reversible with no teeth to be removed and at Greater Whitsunday Vet Services we try to highlight this treat this before becoming a grade THREE or FOUR, which involves multiple teeth to be removed, longer anaesthetics and more pain for our patients.

Emergency Assistance

Our Vets and nurses are available for afterhours emergencies for our clients 7 days a week. If you believe your animal is having an emergency, please contact us on 07 4786 1010 and follow the prompts. Here you will reach a member of our nursing team to help triage the situation.

Remember Greater Whitsunday Vet Services is a small team and not only do our vets and nurses work during the day but then go on call when they are at home at night. Please be courteous and only call if there is a genuine emergency. We understand it is a stressful time but please be courteous to staff as no aggression, violence or abuse is tolerated at our clinic.
