Hello, from
Greencross Vets

Paradise

Welcome to Greencross Vets Paradise

Greencross Vets Paradise has been providing veterinary services for Adelaide pets for over 40 years and are now backed by the resources of the Australia wide Greencross Vets group.

We operate from a modern, purpose built veterinary clinic and are well known for providing friendly and comprehensive veterinary care while also putting both our clients and pets at ease

Our staff, both vets and nurses are not only passionate about animals and their care, they are also highly trained to look after your pets and are always expanding their knowledge through both internal and external seminars and courses.

Having 4 experienced vets who can regularly compare notes ensures that your pet can get an automatic ‘in-house’ referral for those more challenging cases. Further referrals for peace of mind are available through the local Veterinary specialist and referral centre.

For those emergencies that always seem to occur after hours, we have confidence that the local Animal Emergency Centre will provide whatever level of care is needed to restore your pet to comfort.

Some of our unique services offered include:

Online Appointment Scheduling
Cat friendly consulting rooms (dog free) to reduce stressful visits
Puppy Pre School ‘best start to life’ program
Diet advice and ‘Porky Pets’ weight loss advice

Sterile theatre for general and major soft tissue and orthopaedic (bone) surgery

Endoscope examination of the airways and stomach

Ultrasound

Our Services.

Greencross Vets Paradise offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services to cater for all your pet care needs utilising the latest diagnostic equipment.

Desexing

Getting your pet desexed (neutered or spayed) is essential to their health. All Greencross Vets facilities are completely sterile and use the latest in surgical equipment.

Vaccinations

Prevention is the best medicine. Kitten and puppy vaccinations (injections) and adult pet vaccinations prevent disease. Get your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm can be hard to detect, but it needn’t be hard to prevent. Greencross Vets recommends year round heartworm prevention. Ask your vet about prevention today.

Dentistry

Greencross Vets offer a range of dentistry services like cat and dog teeth cleaning. Consider us your pet’s veterinarian and dentist combined.

Puppy Pre-School

Greencross Vets Puppy School is an excellent starting point for owners wanting a well-managed and socialised pet. Courses run for four to six weeks. Click to learn more.

Ultrasound

An ultrasound is a painless diagnostic procedure that allows vets to take a closer look at your pet’s health. We only use the latest technology for the most accurate diagnoses.

X-ray/Radiology

Greencross Vets clinics are equipped with high-quality radiograph equipment including X-ray machines, automatic processors, and X-ray view equipment.

Clinical pathology allows our vets to analyse and diagnose health conditions. Common laboratory tests include blood tests, urinalysis, faecal tests and biopsy examination.

Laboratory Testing

The latest in-house laboratory equipment allows our vets to perform a range of diagnostic tests to achieve accurate, rapid diagnosis of your pets’ health status.
