Digital radiography, Computed Tomography, ultrasound, full haematology and biochemistry blood testing machines in house, sophisticated anaesthetic monitoring equipment...everything you'd expect from a first class veterinary practice.
Separate dog and cat wards
Imagine you are a cat... it is stressful enough being taken to a strange place with lots of weird smells (a vet practice), without the added stress of dogs barking at you from neighbouring cages. We have purpose built separated dog and cat wards to reduce the stress levels for our in-patients as much as possible.
Our stainless steel cages are thoroughly disinfected each day, and our dedicated ward nurses ensure that all in-patients are checked hourly or more often if needed. We also have CCTV observing our intensive care cages, should we wish to replay an incident or monitor discreetly (some pets won't eat if a stranger is watching them!)Back to top
We have not one but 3 isolation rooms, each customised for specific types of infectious diseases. If your pet needs to be hospitalised here, it is because he/she has a contagious disease that could be harmful to our other inpatients. Not only do we need to house them separately, having them in a specially designed and segregated isolation ward means reduced cross-contamination as equipment, bedding, bowls etc. are confined to the isolation ward only. Rest assured pets in isolation ward get constant monitoring and lots of attention from our isolation staff!Back to top
The most important features of an operating theatre are that it is spacious, well lit and easy to clean properly. Our theatre was built with this in mind.Back to top
Veterinary anaesthesia has come a long way over the past decade, and pet owners now demand a level of safety comparable with human anaesthesia. In the past, the absence of modern anaesthetic gas machines meant that animals underwent general anaesthesia using intravenously administered drugs, which carry a much greater risk of overdose.
Sunset Vet uses an award-winning gas anaesthetic machine called the Humphrey FreeOx System. This allows us to administer inhalational anaesthesia with a much greater degree of control over the depth of the anaesthesia. We also use an oxygen concentrator to suck oxygen from the surrounding room air, which is much more eco-friendly than using oxygen tanks and means the oxygen never runs out - so it is safer. In addition, our array of sophisticated monitoring equipment such as pulse oximetry, electrocardiography and blood pressure monitoring, which we use even when doing routine procedures, means we can detect any anaesthetic complications before they become dangerous and take measures to counter them.Back to top
We are thrilled to announce the grand opening of the first-ever Veterinary Computed Tomography (CT) service in Indonesia. At Sunset Vet, we are dedicated to bringing cutting-edge technology and exceptional care to our furry friends. With our newly fitted CT scanner, we are revolutionizing the way we diagnose and treat our beloved animal companions.
Why is veterinary CT so useful? CT scanning allows for detailed, three-dimensional imaging of your pet's internal structures, enabling our veterinarians to identify and diagnose conditions that might otherwise go unnoticed. Whether it's detecting tumors, assessing organ health, or investigating complex fractures, CT scans can provide additional clarity and accuracy compared with traditional Xrays.Back to top
Ultrasound is a diagnostic medical imaging technique used to visualize muscles, tendons, and many internal organs, to capture their size, structure and any pathological lesions with real time images. Many people are familiar with ultrasound from having had, or witnessed, a pre-natal check.
Common reasons we use ultrasound as vets include:
- Checking whether a dog or cat is pregnant, how far to term is the pregnancy, confirming how many pupppies/kittens, confirming foetal health by visualising heart beat.
- Performing ultrasound guided biopsy of internal organs
- Diagnosis of heart problems
- Diagnosis of abdominal problems such as gastrointestinal obstruction and pyometra
Most owners are unaware of their dogs teeth problem until either a vet checks the dogs mouth, or the mouth becomes so sore and breath so foul that the owners attention is drawn to it.
As your dentist will advise you, preventative dental care is a much better strategy than waiting for a problem to occur and then dealing with it. Dogs do not tend to suffer from cavities as humans do, but often get periodontal (gum) disease, which is painful. Cats can also suffer from painful dental problems, particularly those that do not hunt prey such as mice, and those that are fed a wet (canned) food diet.
At Sunset Vet we have a dedicated dentistry suite, where your dog or cat can have his/her teeth scaled and polished, and go home with a beautifully clean and fragrant mouth. Possibly the greatest gift you could give your pet.Back to top
Our on-site laboratory features a fully automatic haematology analyser, automatic biochemistry analyser, electolyte and lactate analyser, faecal analyzer, digital camera microscope... basically everything we need to make fast and accurate diagnoses. Of course some diseases are not easily diagnosed in this way, but being able to do a wider range of blood tests in house, with rapid results, sets us apart.
We have invested heavily in equipment that carries a low incremental cost for the reagents used by the machines, so that we can offer such blood tests at prices suitable for Bali - at a fraction of the cost you would pay in Australia, for example.Back to top
Our pharmacy is stocked with almost all of the medicines you would find in a Western vet clinic. Unfortunately, some medicines used in the West are illegal in Indonesia (e.g. opiate painkillers such as morphine) but if it is widely prescribed in the West and not illegal in Indonesia, we generally have it. Furthermore, if we don't have it, your pet needs it and it's not illegal here, we'll find it for you.Back to top
Our ambulances are primarily used for non-emergency home visits, and picking up or dropping off animals before and after surgery. You may see a distinctive light blue Suzuki APV or a Wuling EV cruising around, usually being driven by Pak Budi (give him a wave!)
Note that for sick animals we prefer to schedule appointments at the clinic where we have all the equipment and laboratory facilities available to us should we need them.Back to top
