    You may never need to give it any thought but, if your pet should ever require an operation, the caliber of our surgical resources and anesthetics are second to none. Only the best for your pet: Advances in veterinary medicine and surgery are ongoing, and we believe in offering the very safest treatment and care available. Naturally they may cost more, but we know for certain that there are significant benefits to be gained over traditional options. Setting standards high for you: Our promise to set the standards is delivered through the caliber of our vets and, of course, our nursing team. This, along with the advanced nature of our equipment and facilities, plus our choice of the most modern anesthetics, means that your pet couldn’t be in better hands. Surgical excellence at every level: Our surgical equipment is of the highest quality, much of it purchased from human hospitals, and spans all procedures from delicate eye surgery to fracture repair. Our surgeries are testament to our philosophy too, with dedicated, sterile operating theatres, tables and lighting. Pain relief, even for the smallest procedure, is paramount in our minds and attention is paid to every detail. An unrivalled safety with anesthesia: Safe anesthesia is paramount at the Green Cross. The entire staff is highly trained in modern anesthetic monitoring techniques, and all patients under anesthesia are also monitored with equipment similar to that used in human theatres.

    LAPAROSCOPY SURGERY/ENDOSCOPY

    The Green Cross is very proud to be in the leading front when it comes to advances in veterinary Medicine and Surgery in Macau. We now use laparoscopic surgery has a routine procedure in our clinics. Laparoscopy is a procedure in which special optical instruments, or endoscopes, are used to view the interior of several parts of the body. Laparoscopy functions as a diagnostic tool and can also be used for several surgical techniques. When an endoscope is used to perform surgery in the abdominal cavity, it is called laparoscopy. Laparoscopic surgeries are performed through two or three very small openings into the abdominal cavity. These procedures are much less invasive than standard surgery, in which the abdominal cavity must be entered through an incision of varying length. Laparoscopy have major advantages, less pain post-operative because we only need to make a small incision, better visualization to take biopsies (liver, kidney , pancreas, spleen , etc) and less complication rates compared with blind biopsies and open surgery.

  • OPHTHALMOLOGY

    The health and function of your pet’s eyes are vital to his or her well-being. “Your pet’s eyes are its windows to the world.” If you notice any changes in your pets vision or the way their eyes look, let us know, there is usually something that can be done before it becomes a major problem. Don’t forget problems in the eyes can be a sign of other illnesses in the rest of the body. How can we help? We have a range of modern diagnostic tools and tests at our disposal to help diagnose and treat the problem. We have at our service, an eye specialist from overseas every couple of months, to perform surgeries such as cataract and glaucoma surgery.

    CARDIOLOGY

    The practice of cardiology has evolved and has become one of the most exciting and challenging specialties in veterinary medicine. Having a Doppler ultrasound machine and an ECG machine at the Green Cross has allowed us to accurately diagnose heart problems earlier and treat animals more effectively. This is vital to help pets with heart problems lead a longer and more fulfilling life. The arrival of echo cardiology – ultrasound of the heart – has resulted in a major advance in veterinary cardiology. With the use of a sophisticated ultrasound machine an expert cardiologist can analyze the heart in minute detail. The heart can be watched beating, each valve examined and the size of each heart chamber and wall measured. We can even measure the direction and speed of blood flow through the heart.

  • DENTISTRY

    Bad breath can be an early sign of dental disease, which is estimated to affect at least 70% of adult dogs and cats. Dental disease progresses in a number of different stages. Treatment usually involves a dental scale and polish, which is carried out under general anesthesia. During this procedure, plaque and calculus are removed and, if the disease is severe, some teeth may need to be extracted. Unfortunately, even after a professional clean, plaque starts to build up within hours and therefore a preventative daily home-care routine is vital. However, it is important not to use human dental products as these often contain detergents, foaming agents and fluoride! Please contact us if you would like to book your pet in for a dental check or if you have any further questions about how to improve your pet’s dental hygiene.

    ONCOLOGY

    Cancer can be a devastating disease however if diagnosed on time it can increase greatly the chances of success. The main goal in cancer treatment, is to diagnosed it as early as possible. “Typing” and “staging” is fundamental to achieve the best treatment possible for each individual case. “Typing” of the tumor consists of performing a biopsy, to know what type of tumor and how malignant that tumor is. After knowing the tumor type we will stage the disease which means we will perform a full body check to know if the cancer has already spread to other parts of the body. With this information We will offer to our clients the best possible treatment that might consist in surgery to remove the tumor, chemotherapy , local therapy or sometimes a combination of treatments. It is understandable that, faced with a diagnosis of cancer, you will feel frightened about the future for your pet. Discussing your fears with us is the very best way to obtain reassurance and an independent assessment that you are doing what is right for your pet.

  • DERMATOLOGY

    Despite the fact that the skin is the only organ that you can visualize, touch and smell, dermatological problems are difficult to diagnose and manage. Dermatology – the study of skin diseases – is arguably the most demanding discipline in small animal medicine. The skin can only react in a limited number of ways to a whole host of diseases, and as such unraveling the diagnosis is often likened to an investigation of a crime scene. i.e. Diagnosis is made usually by ruling out other possibilities one by one. Here at the Green Cross Vet Clinic, we have veterinary surgeons that have qualifications in veterinary dermatology. They are just as at home diagnosing the simplest of skin problems such as flea allergies as they are with more rare skin diseases.

    IMAGIOLOGY

    Looking inside with X-rays X-rays are vital diagnostic tool in the investigation of disease and also in the screening of healthy animals. At the Green Cross we only use digital radiography. Like digital photography, digital radiography removes the need for processing of films and means that X-ray images are instantly available for examination by our vets and visible on all computer screens within the practice. Looking inside with ultrasound. Ultrasound in small animal veterinary medicine has grown rapidly and at the Green Cross we use the latest and most sophisticated ultrasound machine available in the market. This has allowed early diagnosis and better management of diseases, which previously went undetected for months or years. It is proving its value, particularly in respect of cases such as pregnancy diagnosis, evaluation of the size and normality of internal organs, evaluation of heart function, blood flow and examination of structures within the eye, which make its cost very well worthwhile.
