An initial 60 minute consultation is $242.00. All fees include GST. Medications, laboratory fees and surgery fees are additional.
Initial consultations take 60-90 minutes. The initial visit involves a detailed review of the case history, a complete dermatological examination and lab work, then an explanation of the management options. I try to make the treatment financially sustainable, discuss all costs with you upfront, and won’t have you coming back in a short space of time unnecessarily.
The earlier, the better! But it is never too late. I can always make a positive impact.
Skin complaints in your pet can be difficult to manage. I will do my best to get you a diagnosis promptly, and get treatment underway that is safe and effective.

From the initial consultation, you will be well informed. The initial consultations can be quite thorough – involving a very detailed history collection, examination and skin sampling, to enable diagnosis. You will have clear expectations of the short, medium- and long-term treatment plan, and will leave each consultation with detailed, easy to understand instructions.
Following our consultations, I make myself available for you by SMS and 5 minute phone follow ups at no charge. I need to ensure that you have a smooth run with your treatments so we achieve the best outcome. Follow up visits can be organised at relatively short notice.
