PERSONALISED PREVENTATIVECARE

Chase Valley Veterinary Clinic is a well-established veterinary clinic in Pietermaritzburg. We pride ourselves that we are a family clinic and know most of our clients and patients individually. We try to give a holistic service – tending to all aspects of pet care. Nutrition, behaviour, puppy training, breeding – we will steer you in the right direction.


Dr. Estee van Aardt


Dr Estèe qualified at Onderstepoort in 2010. She worked in mixed animal practise in Brits until 2014 – where she gained a large amount of surgical experience; mainly because there were no referral centres close by! She also got to work with a very wide variety of species, but her favourite still remains dogs and cats. She got married in 2014 and moved to Pietermaritzburg with her husband, Chrisjan – an accountant, and her shadow, Trix – a miniature schnauzer. “It’s a blessing to be able to do what you love every day, and then get paid to do it! “


Patient Care

Nina Hilliar


Nina started at the clinic since the take-over in 2014: before that she was working at a clinic in Hillcrest. She sees to patient care, preparing animals for theater and liaising with clients. She is an avid supporter of puppy training, and a wiz at raising baby kittens.




Reception

Nicola Cooke


Nicola manages our front shop.  She is born and bred in Maritzburg, currently taking a gap-year after completing her post-grad studies in social sciences. She plans to work in the NGO sector, using education as a means of developing and furthering both people and their communities, but in the meantime is a big asset to our clinic!




Reception

Rayne


Rayne is the newest addition to our team. She is a first-year education student at Damelin – studying foundation phase. She has a staffy called Maya, and is soon to be getting her very first cat (She is very excited!). Rayne works in the afternoons. She also is a very professional house-sitter and babysitter.

We have you covered

OUR SERVICES

Our clinic has an operating theatre with gas anaesthetic, kennels for treating animals as well for dogs for surgery, a basic laboratory with a microscope, centrifuge and Vettest diagnostic machine as well as a digital x-ray machine.


WELLNESS & PREVENTATIVE MEDICINE


We pride ourselves in trying to school our owners to give their animals the best possible care, nutrition, de-worming and parasite care they can afford. We try and make it easier by sending SMS and postcard reminders for vaccinations, deworming and Bravecto. We also offer home visits for vaccinations in the immediately surrounding areas to the practice.



EXAMINATION & HOSPITALIZED TREATMENT


Sick animals are brought in for full examinations and we also have a small hospital for hospitalized cases. Although we do not offer 24 hour care, someone comes in at night and one weekends to check on the animals – and the very sick ones go home with the vet (with permission of the owner). We know our patients by name and pride ourselves in it.  Unfortunately we do not have isolation facilities.



VACCINATIONS


We offer puppy vaccinations, litter vaccinations, annual vaccinations as well as kennel cough vaccinations. Special vaccinations for breeders such as Herpes can be done on request. Our normal cat vaccine includes feline leukemia virus – we believe in rather keeping our patients healthy than treating the sick ones.



MICROCHIPPING


We are very pro-micro-chipping and offer different types of microchips – some at a very reasonable cost. All strays that are picked up and brought to the clinic are also micro-chipped.




DENTISTRY


We have an ultrasonic scaler and polisher, as well as full set of extraction equipment. Animal’s teeth are usually cleaned and extracted under general anaesthesia – so best to make an appointment to see a veterinarian first.



ROUTINE SURGERIES


Routine doesn’t always mean simple! We offer a broad range of routine surgeries such as sterilizations, but also a few others like mass removals, cherry eyes, caesarian sections, othematomas – just to mention a few.



GERIATRIC CARE


After the age of 8 – animals need extra special care. We offer a variety of cost-effective in-house tests to try and detect normal old-age problems in animals and to start treatment early.



DIETARY & NUTRITIONAL COUNSELLING


We stock a wide range of food – general and prescription diets from trusted companies. (Hills, Eukanuba, Iams, Royal Canin, Sanimed, Ultradog, Olympic, Acana and Origin). We help clients finding the right food for their specific needs by doing cost-per-day comparisons, enrolling in loyalty programs and even by weighing the food and sending measuring cups home. Our staff are all trained to advise, but veterinary advice is always available too.
