Animal Clinic

What better way to care for your pets and help shelter pets at the same time?

Open to the public

Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre has opened the doors of our Animal Clinic to the public in order to give our community more affordable health care for your pets while enjoying the benefits of the most caring Doctor and Nurses around. In addition, supporting our Clinic means that you will also be supporting over 500 animals at the Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre, as all proceeds from our Clinic go straight into the care of the Shelter Animals!

Open to Wet Nose

The Wet Nose Animal Clinic provides all the medical care needed to our over 500 rescued animals. On intake, every animal goes to the clinic for a comprehensive intake clinical examination. There they are checked for injuries, illness, skin conditions, heart conditions, dehydration, malnutrition etc. Thereafter, every animal gets vaccinated, de-wormed, microchipped, dipped for parasites, cats get tested for HIV/FeLV and of course, they all get sterilised!

During the course of their stay at Wet Nose, they will continue to be treated or vaccinated, dipped and de-wormed when due. Finally, when the happy day of adoption comes along, each animal will receive an exit clinical examination, just to make sure that they are happy and healthy going home.

For any surgeries or procedures please contact us for an appointment.

Pets are part of the family and at Wet Nose we understand that they need the best start in life! This includes getting vaccinated to protect them against preventable diseases.

The why, when and what of vaccines:

Why? The purpose of vaccines is to help the immune system fend off infections caused by pathogens your pet is exposed to. Although we vaccinate against most diseases, please remember it is not possible to vaccinate against all diseases.

When? Puppies and kittens must receive their baseline series of vaccines within the first three to four months of their life. Puppies are vaccinated at 6, 9 and 12 weeks of age and it’s very important that the interval isn’t more than four weeks between these first three vaccinations. The core vaccine (also called 5 in 1) includes: canine parvovirus, canine distemper virus, adeno type 1 (infectious canine hepatitis), adeno type 2 (canine respiratory disease) and parainfluenza virus.

Kittens are vaccinated at 6, 9 and 12 weeks of age, and it’s also important to not let the interval between the first three vaccines exceed four weeks. The core vaccine includes: feline panleukopenia, feline rhinotracheitis and feline calicivirus. The rabies vaccine for dogs and cats is given with the third vaccination at three months of age and should then be boosted between one to nine months thereafter. It is important that all core vaccines are boosted annually.


Wet Nose Animal Clinic strives to provide our clients and patients with optimal care by making accurate diagnoses. To ensure we achieve this, we make use of our fully equipped diagnostics laboratory which is equipped with:

  • CR X-ray machine
  • Brand new state-of-the-art, in-house blood chemistry machine
  • Dental machine
  • Colour Doppler sonar machine

providing your pet with updated and professional veterinary care.


We believe that it is important to make sure that should your animal get lost for some reason, they can be traced back to you. This is done by having your pet microchipped.

A microchip is a small metal chip that we insert under the skin of the animal during a normal consultation. All your contact information will be loaded onto a database matching the microchip serial number with your details, which makes it easy to get hold of you if your pet is lost and brought into a shelter. Wet Nose Animal Clinic sees microchipping as essential and for this reason, we provide a microchipping service at a reduced price. The feeling of reuniting a microchipped pet with its owner is always an overwhelming feeling of joy and relief, so we absolutely encourage chipping!

Note: Owners with microchipped pets must remember that any change of address or other essential details must be updated in conjunction with your pet’s microchip.


Surgeries are performed every weekday in our fully equipped surgery room. Surgeries include sterilisations, dentals, orthopaedic (bone fracture) surgery, abdominal surgery and other soft tissue surgery, for example, growth removals and wound care. At Wet Nose Animal Clinic, we have two theatre tables, each equipped with an isoflurane gas anaesthetic machine, SpO2 with heart monitors, theatre lights and all necessary equipment and instruments.

Surgery can be expensive, but at Wet Nose Animal Clinic we offer surgery at more affordable rates, in order to help you take better care of your pet, while still maintaining top-quality surgical procedures.

Cat friendly

Wet Nose Animal Clinic strives to make your vet visit more pleasurable, quicker and as efficient as possible. When it comes to our feline patients, we have improved the environment in which they find themselves when visiting us. We appreciate that there are major differences between our cat and dog patients and we will treat them as such.

We have improved our clinic to be more cat-friendly in the following ways:

  • Cats are handled effectively and efficiently by staff members trained to handle cats in the correct manner
  • Cats have their own surgical ward away from dogs to minimize the stress
  • Our cat surgical ward is equipped with a pet remedy natural destress and calming plug diffuser
  • We have cat-only blankets that are sprayed with pet remedy natural destress and calming spray
  • These blankets are available to all cat patients and owners are encouraged to take one for the duration of the vet visit
  • The vets and nurse also use this spray on blankets in the consultation to help keep your cat as calm and stress-free as possible.
