Veterinary possibilities

The Kralingseweg veterinary clinic aims to deliver first-class, broadbased animal medical care, which includes:

vaccinations - digital X-ray / ultrasound - castrations - blood checks - spaying - internal medicine - dermatology - chipping - tumour surgery - general surgery - referrals to specialists

In order to make all of this possible, we use a lot of up-to-date modern equipment:

  • digital X-ray
  • Spotchem-and Eurolyser blood-analysers
  • Gas-anesthesia with isoflurane and O2
  • IM3 dental equipment
  • Infusion pump


During medical procedures requiring more than 10 minutes of anesthesia all patients are provided with gas-mixture of oxygen and isoflurane. At present, this is the safest form of anesthesia, even for old and weak animals.


Dr. Alberdingk Thijm has been a long-standing member of the ESVD (European Society for Veterinary Dermatology) and has always taken a special interest in the dermatological problems of dogs and cats, especially the treatment of allergic skin disease in these species.

Problems with itching through various causes are very common among our pets and they often need a multimodal therapeutical approach of the causes (eg. pollen, housedust-mite,food) as well as the results of licking, scratching and biting: secundary infection of the skin with yeasts and bacteria.

ear-disease (seen from the dermatological perspective)

“He’s scratching his ears, so he’ll probably have earmites”

An infection with earmite is usually the first thing that people (including vets) think of when they see their dog scratching his ears. Many people do not know that allergies are a much more common cause of ear-scratching than parasites like earmites.

The result of scratching caused by allergies can be a deeply infected, narrowed and inflamed ear-canal. Although some of the same dermatological medicine is used to treat ears as in dermatological problems in other skin-areas, more emphasis is usually taken in treating the animal locally in the ear with ointments and earcleaners. Chronically inflamed ears can become a difficult problem for the vet as well as the owner of the patient, whereby the rate of succes often depends on good cooperation and communication between the parties, including the dog. When we encounter these difficult ears, we usually start by cleaning them thoroughly, in order to make the ear accessible to the locally acting ointment. Within our practice, we have a lot of experience with the long-term treatment of these ears.

veterinary dentistry


Gum disease as a result of tartar or other causes is a widespread problem among our pets. For the cleaning and removal of teeth we have modern scaling equipment and a highspeed drill at our disposal. During all dental procedures we always use a safe form of anesthesia combines with painkillers.

We are always willing to give your pet’s teeth a free check-up to see if treatment is necessary.
