Professional services

The Happy Animal Clinic is a referral veterinary service. We work in partnership with you, your animal companion and your family veterinarian, to find ways to promote your animal's psychological and physical wellbeing.  We currently offer home visits in Cape Town and surrounding suburbs.

You can look forward to a tailored program of support that integrates wellbeing strategies that work for you and your animal companions. Treatment modalities include herbal medicines, acupuncture, behavioural counseling, physical therapies and lifestyle advice as appropriate. These modalities are integrated with conventional treatments as prescribed by your family veterinarian.

We assist with a range of physical, mental and behavioural complaints in animals. These problems are often characterised by long-term psychological, neurological and/or immune system disturbances that benefit from an interdisciplinary approach.

Examples of problems that we address:

Pain - e.g. arthritis, slipped discs
Skin Problems - e.g. allergies, recurrent infections
Digestive Problems - e.g. diarrhoea, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
Old Age Problems - e.g. frailty, incontinence, cancer
Behavioural Problems - e.g. stress-related conditions, anxiety, urinating inside, obsessive behaviours

Some of the general benefits of our approach:

Greater awareness of the nature and needs of your animal
Mental-emotional aspects of wellbeing are addressed
Normal physiological functions are supported
Positive methods to promote your animal's wellbeing
Enhanced human-animal bond
Ethical, sustainable solutions for happy animals and a happy planet too
