The vet also perform a physical examination on your pet including oral examination if required.

Animals are susceptible to parasites, both internal (intestinal) and external, depending on where they have been, and with whom they have been in contact with. This can cause distress to pet owners, who may be unfamiliar with what parasites their pets may have, and what needs to be done to eradicate the parasites.
Some parasites can transmit other diseases, and may not be easily seen on the pet, and the pet may not exhibit any symptoms. Prevention is of utmost importance, as some parasitic conditions can be fatal, if diagnosed late or untreated.
Here at Spring Veterinary Care, we offer different forms of parasite control to ensure the safety and well-being of your pets, as well as your family.
We aim to help you protect your pet through veterinary examinations and parasite testing if necessary, with subsequent discussions and recommendations on suitable products to prevent parasites.
Like humans, our pets naturally encounter increasing health problems as they age. If detected early, many diseases can be treated and controlled with appropriate medication and diet. Our furry friends are enjoying longer lifespans due to increased awareness of diseases, medical advancements, and the increased availability of veterinary care. Regular visits to the veterinarian, coupled with routine bloodwork and other diagnostic testing, are essential in picking up the first indication of a problem.
Our knowledgable team at Spring Veterinary Care is keen to help you understand your pet’s aging process. An old pet does not necessarily mean a pet that is lethargic, has a poor haircoat, or one that has bad teeth with odour. We aim to work with you to provide a good quality of life for your pets as they age.
Some pet owners might view dental health an unimportant aspect of their pet’s health or even assume that their pet’s bad breath is just an aging sign but this is not true. Periodontal disease occurs commonly when plague and tartar form around the teeth, causing gum swelling and tooth decay. This not only causes pain and local infection, but also affects the kidneys, heart and liver.
During your pet’s routine check-up with us, our trained veterinarians will assess your pet’s teeth, and give you options to optimize your pet’s oral health, while taking quality of life and health status into consideration. Other than dental scaling, we also perform teeth extractions, filing of pocket pets’ teeth, and treatment of tooth root abscesses.
In accordance with Singapore’s licensing rules, we do microchipping of your pets to ensure that they can be traced and returned to you safely.
Before exporting your pet out of Singapore, you will be required to produce a veterinary certificate to show that your pet is healthy and free from any contagious or infectious disease. We are able to examine your pet to check that it is fit for travel, and issue a veterinary certificate for you, which will be valid for 7 days in most cases.
