The services we offer at Chess Vets include:

Pet Dentists

Dental hygiene and surgery are very important in dogs, cats and small animals. Our qualified staff are experienced in offering a range of dentistry services, from health advice and teeth cleaning to extractions.

Having a regular tooth check up is as important for your pets as it is for humans; prevention is better than cure.

For information regarding any of the dental services we provide, please contact us.

Ultrasound Services

We have an on-site Ultrasound machine. Ultrasound is a means of viewing the inside of an animal by sending sound waves throught your pet's skin to view the structures within, allowing the vet to view the internal organs on a screen.

Ultrasonography is an important diagnostic tool and can also be used for pregnancy diagnosis.

For more information please contact us.
