What we do 

General
‘Dierenkliniek Ter Weerlaan’ is a veterinary clinic for pets. Predominantly dogs and cats but we also see rabbits, rodents, ferrets, reptiles and birds for veterinary treatment. We run a well equipped professional clinic, with an enthusiastic team of on average two veterinarians and two para-veterinary technicians.
We actively cooperate with ‘Dierenkliniek Statenlaan’ in The Hague and ‘Dierenkliniek Nootdorp’ in Nootdorp. We organise our night and weekend shifts with the ‘Dierenartsen Kring Haaglanden’, an association of 25 veterinarians in The Hague region.
Of course we do vaccines and examination and treatment of sick animals. Besides that we offer extensive facilities for surgery, x-rays, ultrasound and endoscopic examination, blood work and hospitalisation. If necessary or desirable, we make home visits to treat your sick pet.

Surgery and anesthesia
The most common surgeries are spays and neuters, removing of lumps and abdominal surgeries. If your pet needs surgery, you can make an appointment by telephone or in person. We will then inform you about fasting before surgery. Dogs and cats are not allowed to eat anything (this includes treats!) from 6pm the day before the surgery. For rabbits, guinea pigs and other rodents there is no need to fast before anesthesia. We recommend blood work on cats and dogs older than ten before they undergo anesthesia, in order to determine their liver and kidney functions.
During the anesthesia we will monitor your pet’s heart, breathing, body temperature and oxygen concentration, which makes the surgery very safe. Of course your pet will also receive pain medication and antibiotics if necessary.
The surgical area will be shaved (the hair will grow back) and we will tell you afterwards if the stitches are dissolving or non-dissolving, in which case you’ll have to come back so we can remove them.

Recovery
When your pet is fully awake and can walk, you can take them home. Some pets will need a cone collar or a medical pet shirt to prevent them from licking the wound. At home your pet can be a bit sleepy, keep them warm. Cats may become restless, in that case keep them in a confined space (pet carrier for instance). Only after a couple of hours you can give them some food. You may give them small amounts of water as soon as you get home. If your pet needs medicines, you will generally only start giving them the next day. You’ll find the instructions on the box.

What to pay attention to?
Your pet should not become drowsier: the sleepiness should be gone within a day
Your pet should not vomit
There shouldn’t be any secondary bleeding from the wound (a few drops are normal)
Your pet shouldn’t lick, bite or scratch the wound
Your pet’s appetite and drinking should be back to normal within a day
Fever is not normal after surgery
The wound should look clean and neat
If you are worried about your pet, don’t hesitate to call us!

Dental care
Dental care is as important for your pet as it is for you! Dental plaque and dental tartar can cause infections which can lead to loose teeth and even infections of the kidneys, heart, liver and lungs. In order to prevent this from happening we advise pet owners to start brushing their pet’s teeth from a very young age. With a small soft brush and a special tooth paste for animals. Don’t use human tooth paste as the fluoride is toxic to your pet and the whiteners can upset the stomach. We can provide you with everything you need for the dental care for your pet, including advice.
If your pet has dental plaque and tartar, we will recommend a professional dental cleaning, which will be done under anesthesia. If necessary we can also take x-rays of your pet’s teeth.

Laboratory tests
Sometimes it is necessary to do blood work in order to determine what’s wrong with your pet. We have the equipment to make a quick blood analyis for blood sugar, kidney function and viral infections. For more complicated cases we cooperate with the University of Utrecht laboratory.
Besides blood work we can also examine your pet’s urine, faeces, skin scrapes or ear swabs.

Imaging and endoscopy
With our x-ray equipment we can determine fractures, wear and tear in the joints, abnormal development of the joints (such as elbow dysplasia and hip dysplasia) and besides that we can also image heart, lungs and other organs.
With ultrasound technology it can be easier to image the bowels and the heart. For some types of imaging we will refer you to an imaging specialist.
In our clinic in Wassenaar we have endoscopic equipment at our disposal to reach the best diagnosis for your pet. We can thoroughly examine the whole gastrointestinal tract, from esophagus to colon, and the upper airways. Some foreign bodies that your pet might have swallowed can even be removed through endoscopy.

Referral
We refer complicated cases to specialists such as dermatologists, orthopedic surgeons, internists, ophtalmologists or specialised surgeons. We collaborate with specialists in The Hague, Amsterdam, Dordrecht, Gouda and of course with the Vet School at the University of Utrecht.
