The Medicine Clinic specialises in the advanced diagnosis and treatment of illnesses in cats and dogs. The registered veterinary specialist physicians Dr Malan van Zyl and Dr Tanya Schoeman specialise in medical problems including problems of the heart, intestine, lungs, liver, urinary tract, kidneys, nervous system, skin, etc. Any medical problem that has escaped accurate diagnosis or requires specialised treatment is expertly but sensitively handled at the Medicine Clinic. Sick patients that require hospitalisation or for recovery after surgery will be cared for in the High Care Unit. The specialists are supported by 3 qualified veterinary nurses to ensure highest level of care. At night and over week-ends the veterinarians and nurses from the All Hours Clinic ensure that care and treatments are continued.
Thanks to good health care and good nutrition, our pets tend to live longer. Unfortunately they are also exposed to all the ills of the modern world, so cancer has become a very common disorder. The diagnosis and treatment of cancer in your pet requires special techniques and advanced treatments individualized to each patient. The Medicine Clinic prides itself on its success in this field. No longer is a diagnosis of cancer necessarily the end of the road. Some cancers can be treated very successfully and a cure may be possible. When a cure is not possible, we will attempt to provide quality of life for as long as possible. At the very least, once a specific diagnosis has been made and even if no treatment is possible, acceptance is somewhat easier and realistic goals can be set or choices made.
