We have a friendly, patient-orientated reception area. Our reception staff consists of our dedicated and trained veterinary nurses, so any medical queries or emergencies can be dealt with in a prompt and appropriate manner. Our reception team are happy to make appointments for you and your pet, arrange admission for procedures, order medications, provide advice and sell non-prescription medications and foods.
Dog and Cat Wards
Manuka Veterinary Hospital has two separate wards for dogs and cats with cages of various sizes. All cages have thick and comfortable bedding and the rooms are air-conditioned/heated for optimum patient comfort.
The clinic has a sterile surgery unit, fully equipped with a gaseous anaesthetic machine and comprehensive monitoring systems. This allows us to perform surgery on all animals, whether it be for routine desexings or more complex soft tissue or orthopaedic conditions. We also have an autoclave to maintain our surgical equipment at a high level of sterility.
We have a dedicated diagnostic imaging room containing state of the art digital x-ray machinery, as well as capabilities for blood pressure checks and ultrasounds.
Manuka Veterinary Hospital is equipped with a refractometer, urine dipsticks, and a microscope. For analysing blood, external laboratories are utilised by the hospital to offer special laboratory tests for concise and accurate results.
We have a comprehensive pharmacy on-site allowing medications (both prescription and non-prescription) to be dispensed at the time of consultation. Repeat prescriptions can be arranged by contacting our reception team and will be available for collection in 24 hours. In some cases you will be required to bring your pet in for a health check to determine that ongoing treatment (of the same or differing type) is still appropriate.
We are also able to order specially compounded or unusual medications on an individual basis through one of our compounding pharmacy associates. Such orders may take 3-5 days after ordering.
