Caring for the extended members of your family.
Regular cleaning is vital. Early and regular treatment is much easier and cheaper than major dental surgery. Inflamed gums (gingivitis) and periodontal disease may lead to infection and disease in other internal organs like the heart and kidneys.
Franklin Vets welcomes your surgical referrals and is committed to providing surgical solutions for your pets that are affordable, effective, and that reduce problems for your pet later in life.
Franklin Vets offers you peace of mind when you are away. Your cat can holiday with us at our purpose-built cattery facilities. We only accommodate up to two cats per unit and only cats from the same household will be housed together.
Franklin Vets offers a de-sexing procedure, performed in our modern theatres using the latest technologies. All our surgical patients receive opiate (morphine based) pain control while at the clinic and four days of painkillers to take home. We offer de-sexing for all small mammals.
Franklin vets offers vaccinations for optimum health in animals, no matter how big or small.
Hip dysplasia (HD) is the most common genetic condition seen in veterinary practice, affecting virtually every breed. There is no effective cure for this condition.
Ultrasound examination is an extremely important diagnostic tool in veterinary medicine and is a service we offer at Franklin Vets. It provides us with a non-invasive glimpse inside which is invaluable in assessing abdominal organs, hearts and pregnancies.
Anaesthetics and surgeries are performed every day in our clinics. Our veterinarians are fully trained to care for your pets before, during and after surgery.
