Services

  • Surgery

Post-operative care is critical to your pet’s comfort and recuperation. After surgery, our vet surgeon will thoroughly go through the procedure with you and give you as much time as you need to ask questions.

  • Preventative Care

    Preventing illness and disease is essential to keeping your pet healthy throughout its life. At 9Lives we believe that prevention is better than cure and our team is always happy to help you better understand how you can be more proactive with your pet’s healthcare.

  • Complete Health Check

    We recommend check-ups every 6 months and during each of their annual vaccination visits! This gives us far more specificity when we are interpreting your pet’s future blood results and will allow us to diagnose many conditions much earlier.

  • Dental Care

    Same as humans, dental care in pets is crucial to a pet's general health. Regular dental check-ups play a key role in preventing disease and dental pains in your pet. If such issues go unnoticed, it can lead to infections that have been linked with the development of kidney and heart diseases.

  • Geriatric Care

    Thanks to better nutrition and advances in our understanding of aging, our companion cats and dogs are living longer. Many chronic diseases need to be recognized and managed for happier geriatric cats and better longevity.  Our nursing staff can help you with a number of home care techniques to minimize trips to the hospital. With properly managed and controlled, patients can enjoy more years of good quality life.

We are here to diagnose the problem, offer treatment options, and provide recommendations for follow-up care.

  • Acupuncture

    9Lives offer various medical services to help your pets find the most suitable treatment. We offer Veterinary acupuncture for pets as it relies on stimulating specific points on your pet’s body to produce healing responses.

Acupuncture can also help improve blood circulation, stimulate nerves and relieve muscle spasm.

  • Dedicated Care Services

    We know that sometimes pets can get nervous when multiple different people are tending to them and how difficult it can be to medicate your pet. To make it easier and stress-free for you and your pet, you can choose to have a single nurse stay with your pet throughout their time here by electing to use our Nurse Babysitting service.

  • Medicating Service

    We understand how hard it is to medicate your pet, especially when some medications require up to three doses per day. Therefore, we are offering a new service where you can drop your pet off with our expert and friendly team for our team to medicate your pet until the condition resolves or until you are convenient to medicate it at home.
