The most common reasons to visit the small animal clinic are vaccinations, routine surgeries, ear and skin infections as well as problems of the gastrointestinal tract. The clinic can perform the most common surgeries but more difficult cases, such as bone fracture or gastric torsion surgeries, are referred to the Helsinki-based Small Animal Hospital of the Veterinary Teaching Hospital.
When agreed separately, ultrasonic and radiation examinations can also be performed at the small animal clinic. Blood and other samples can also be studied at the clinic’s own laboratory, when needed. The small animal clinic is usually run by one full-time veterinarian.
