Expertise and highly qualified staff

Greenside Animal Hospital’s vets and healthcare team attend continuing education programs monthly and are accredited for this.

High standards and utmost sterility

All operations and sterile procedures are performed with individually sterilised surgical sets, theatre clothing and new sterile consumables.

Care and commitment

All patients are treated with the utmost care and compassion. Each dog in hospital is taken outside at least twice a day. We do follow-up phone calls to make sure our patients are responding well to their treatment.

Separate dog and cat wards

Dogs and cats do not share a ward in our hospital, there are separate wards for each species. The reason is quite simply because an animal recovering from injury, disease or surgery needs a calm environment with as little stress as possible in which to recuperate. We believe that by keeping dogs and cats separate we enhance and speed up the recovery process especially for our cat patients.

Isolation Unit

Animals with transmissible infectious diseases are kept in our isolation unit which is completely separate from the animal hospital and the dog and cat wards.

Sterilisations

Spay(Ovariohysterectomy) female and Neuter male dogs and cats from 6 months old and on wards to prevent unnecessary/unwanted reproduction and protect against cancers, etc.

Puppy Socialisation classes

We are fortunate to have some of the most experienced dog trainers in South African run out puppy school on a Thursday evening at the Greenside Animal Hospital from  17:30 to 18:30 and 18:30 to 19:30. Vera Drummond, Elske Spencer-Crooks and Julia Davies have collectively trained dogs for 60 years. Not only have Vera and Elska both won the National Obedience championships with their own dogs but they also present master classes for dog trainers throughout Southern Africa. Does this mean we would like your puppy to become a national champion? By no means. We believe that a well socialised dog becomes a wonderful member of the family and of society. Therefore puppy socialistation forms the corners stone of a long and meaningful relationship between owner and dog and other animals. If a proper foundation has been laid by starting off at 8 weeks with the first puppy socialisation class, a well behaved pet is the result leading to a happy relationship between you and your dog. We strongly encourage all clients who acquire new puppies to bring them to puppy socialisation for at least three months from 8 weeks of age.

Initially puppy training involves nothing more than “playschool” where the puppies can play and interact with other puppies of similar ages. As time progresses basic commands are taught and owners are educated and trained as much as the dog itself by teaching the owner to understand the dogs natural pack instinct and behaviour.

To find out more about  the puppy school, call Julia on 083 367 6649, Elske on 083 260 8917 or Vera on 083 750 6097

Our Standards

Education

Our vets  take as much time as needed during a consultation to fully explain their patient’s condition to their owners and where possible use visual aids to make sure owners understand their pet’s condition and treatment. It is compulsory for all dogs and cats to be vaccinated against rabies at least once every three years. If you would like to let your dog or cat have a litter of puppies or kittens there are a number of things you need to know in preparation for the process.

Convenience with longer hours

Greenside Animal Hospital opens at 07:00 and  is open until 19:00 during the week.
