Our Lara Veterinary Clinic was opened in 1983 to cater for the ever expanding population of Lara and the surrounding districts. The Lara clinic provides a full range of services to our clients and their animals, with extended hours in the evenings for those owners working in Melbourne and travelling home to Lara. We aim to make your pet feel at ease in our Clinic with a caring and gentle approach to our treatments and consultations.
With our modern computer system, all details of your animals histories are available at the touch of a button to both clinics, which are linked "on-line."
Take a moment to meet our team and their own pets. We look forward to seeing you and your pet again at your next scheduled visit.
May is arthritis awareness month
Recent studies have shown that up to 90% of cats aged over 12 years, and more than one in five dogs are affected by arthritis. Osteoarthritis causes pain and inflammation, and can affect one or more joints anywhere in the body, however the most commonly affected joints are the shoulders, elbows, knees and hips.
Often osteoarthritis is an under-diagnosed problem, which can cause a decline in the quality of life of those pets suffering from the condition. Signs of arthritis can include difficulty rising from a resting position, stiffness after exercise, trouble using stairs, loss of interest in walking (or lagging behind when walking) and difficulty running/jumping.
If you have noticed your pet displaying any of these signs, or feel they may be developing arthritis, contact us today to book in for a FREE* consultation with one of our vets to assess your pets joint health and wellbeing.
