Since 1999, Dr David Hoare has been working as a vet for Baldivis and other City of Rockingham locals, building a small local practice into the Port Kennedy Veterinary Hospital that residents know and love today. In that time, the practice has doubled in size (following the purchase of the neighbouring property in 2004) and is currently employing a total of eighteen support staff and seven experienced vets. Today, those looking for a vet in Baldivis, Rockingham, Port Kennedy, Warnbro and other surrounding suburbs will find Port Kennedy Veterinary Hospital to be a highly efficient clinical practice. We are constantly growing and evolving with the latest developments in veterinary medicine and make use of some of the very latest technologies.
What can I expect during a vet consultation?
Much like humans, animals may at times have health issues that aren’t immediately obvious, so we always like to carry out a thorough physical examination during appointments. This includes:
- Checking your pet’s skin, coat and ears for any signs of irritation or infection
- Routine monitoring of vital organs (including heart, lung, bladder, liver and spleen)
- Inspecting oral hygiene (since dental disease is a common issue in dogs and cats)
In addition to completing a comprehensive physical exam, we’ll also want to know about your pet’s medical history (previous illnesses or injuries, etc.) and whether you have any present concerns or nagging questions you’d like to discuss.
