Harradine & Associates
Veterinary and Pet Services - Bunbury, WA
Harradine & Associates aim to provide a high standard of medical and surgical knowledge and treatment to our patients in a friendly, compassionate hospital environment.
Hospital facilities and equipment
The equine area contains stables, with outdoor yards attached, and indoor stocks for standing treatment procedures. It is equipped with videoendoscopy, radiography, ultrasound, gas anaesthesia and dental instruments including Powerfloat.
The small animal practice has three consultation rooms, a treatment/preparation area, a dedicated surgery theatre and hospital wards for dogs and cats. The entire hospital has reverse cycle air conditioning, enabling our patients, clients and ourselves to be comfortable all year round. Equipment includes a high quality X-ray machine, state of the art ultrasound, dental and ECG equipment, fibreoptic endoscopes and two autoclaves for surgical instrument sterilization. The Hospital has recently been equipped with a comprehensive in-house laboratory, which allows us to run blood tests and get rapid results whenever we need to, including afterhours and weekends. When staying with us, the animals are housed in ultrahygienic stainless steel cages.
Many of our veterinary surgeons have undertaken additional study in a variety of areas of veterinary science. In addition to general veterinary expertise members of the practice have particular interests and additional experience in alternative therapies, Bowen therapy, orthopaedic surgery, ophthalmology, medicine and birds.
All our nurses are qualified, Certificate IV awarded ( the equivalent of a human registered nurse), or are studying towards this qualification. Our nurses are an excellent source of information and advice on most areas of pet care and health topics, and are happy to share their knowledge at all times. As well as assisting the veterinarians in surgery, and helping to treat and care for our hospitalized patients, they are mainly responsible for running our senior pet and dental focus months, and admitting and discharging our surgical cases, and possibly most importantly, keeping the vets organized!
