Your pet - family doctor
Starting with vaccination over feeding advice to claw cutting - we offer all regular veterinary services during our consultation hours. Through regular preventive and routine examinations, we want to create the conditions for a long and healthy life of your four-legged friend.
As with humans, a routine check once a year is recommended for animals. We examine your animal, in older animals we also take a closer look at the blood and, if necessary, the heart. Only in the case of abnormalities further examinations are added in order to clarify the problems of the patient more precisely.
Many diseases affect the internal organs, such as the respiratory or digestive system, the pancreas, the immune or hormonal system.
In many cases, these diseases can be detected by a detailed medical history and other diagnostics - such as blood tests and then be treated in a targeted manner.
Vaccinations are also an important prophylaxis for animals to protect them from infectious diseases. Together with you, we will discuss which basic vaccinations we would recommend individually for your pet. We are happy to create a vaccination certificate in order to document each vaccination exactly. With the vaccinations, we comply with the recommendations of the "Guidelines for the Vaccination of Small Animals of the Standing Vaccination Commission Vet". Even when travelling abroad, we advise you comprehensively on the necessary vaccinations.
Diseases of the skin such as itching, redness and allergies are often an external sign of a deeper internal problem, e.B. endocrinological (hormonal) diseases. We take the time to analyze the problem in detail and find the cause in order to be able to help the patient quickly and in the long term.
Worms, fleas, ticks, mites, lice – parasites also occur relatively often in pets. Not only are parasites annoying, but they can also become dangerous to your pet through transmission of disease and tissue damage. Therefore, we recommend regular precautions and checks and also pay attention to whether your animal (as far as externally visible) is infested with parasites during each visit.
Some diseases require a certain diet for your animals, which can positively support the healing process. We offer you special medical food that is tailored to the respective clinical picture and of course depends on the well-being and individual needs of your animal. Just contact us directly – we will be happy to give you a free sample to test.
In addition, we also advise you on the right nutrition for your animal.
Dogs, cats and ferrets can be identified by a microchip on which the owner and address are registered. The chip, which is about the size of a rice grain, is painlessly implanted on the left side of your animal's neck with the help of a syringe. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.
You want to travel with your pet? For a relaxed trip, we will create the necessary travel profiles and veterinary certificates and will be happy to advise you on what you should consider when traveling with your pet.
Chronically ill patients are also very important to us, because they often need intensive and close care. We are happy to take the time for a gentle but intensive treatment and advise you together on a suitable strategy for care at home.
Older semesters often need particularly intensive and loving care. Even despite joint and heart failure, we can give your pet a high quality of life with the right treatment. For all questions and worries, we are happy to be your contact person and will be happy to take care of your pet.
Unfortunately, we cannot help all our patients. Sometimes a difficult decision has to be made. When there is no more hope and an animal suffers, one should face up to its responsibility and accept the limits of what is medically feasible. This is also difficult for us as veterinarians.
When it's time to say goodbye, we don't want to leave you alone. We will advise, inform and accompany you as much as possible. We can also come to your home for euthanasia. Talk to us about a suitable date.
We work together with Tierbestattung im Rosengarten. All animals that stay with us are cremated there. Alternatively, you can also choose an undertaker yourself.
If your pet suddenly falls ill, we are there for your pet around the clock - 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. You can have your pet treated in our practice at any time.
Please make an appointment by phone in advance.
In our practice we are prepared for the treatment of emergencies.

Cat behaviour therapy
Your cat is suddenly unclean, or aggressive and attacks you? And you don’t know what to do? If your cat is clinically healthy, this may be a sign of a behavioural problem. We can help you, and together we can find out why your cat is suddenly behaving differently and how we can change this again.
The first thing we do is examine your cat to make sure it’s completely healthy. If this is the case, we’ll send you a detailed questionnaire so that we can get an initial picture of your cat and its current behaviour. This is followed by a two-hour home visit where we observe your cat to assess the habitat and environment in detail. We will then work with you to develop a strategy to improve your cat’s behaviour through new routines so that your cat feels comfortable again.
Our vet Laurence von Galen specialises in cat behaviour and developed the questionnaire himself. Mr Galen is your contact for all your questions regarding problems with your cats.
Your family pet doctor
From vaccinations to feeding advice to claw trimming, we offer all standard veterinary services during our surgery hours. By providing regular screenings and routine check-ups, we want to work with you to create the conditions to ensure that your four-legged friend has a long and healthy life.
Routine check-ups / Annual screenings
As with humans, a routine check-up once a year is also recommended for animals. We will examine your pet, and in older animals we will also take a closer look at the blood and, if necessary, the heart. Further examinations are only carried out in the event of abnormalities, in order to clarify the patient’s problems in more detail.
Many diseases affect the internal organs, such as the respiratory or digestive system as well as the pancreas, immune or endocrine system.
In many cases, these diseases can be detected through a detailed anamnesis and other diagnostic tools such as blood tests, and can then be treated in a targeted manner.
Vaccinations also provide an important prophylaxis for animals to protect them from infectious diseases. Together with you, we’ll discuss which basic vaccinations we would individually recommend for your pet. We’re happy to create a vaccination record to document each vaccination accurately. With the vaccinations, we follow the recommendations laid down in the German Permanent Veterinary Vaccination Commission’s Guidelines for Vaccinating Small Animals. We will also provide you with detailed advice about the necessary vaccinations when travelling abroad.
Skin conditions such as itching, redness and allergies are often an external sign of a deeper internal problem, for example endocrinological (hormonal) disorders. We take the time to analyse the problem in detail and find the cause to enable the patient to be helped quickly and in the long term.
Parasite control and treatment
Worms, fleas, ticks, mites, lice – parasites are also relatively common in pets. Parasites are not only a nuisance, but can also be dangerous for your pet through transmitting diseases and damaging tissue. We therefore recommend regular screening and check-ups, and will also check whether your pet is infested with parasites (as far as is externally visible) during every visit.
Dietary / Medicated feed
Some diseases require a specific diet for your animals, which can positively support the healing process. We offer special medicinal feeds that are adapted to the respective clinical picture and are, of course, based on the well-being and individual needs of your pet. Simply contact us directly – we’ll be happy to give you a free sample to test.
In addition, we’ll also advise you on the right diet for your pet.
Dogs, cats and ferrets can be identified by a microchip on which the owner’s name and address are registered. The chip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted on the left side of your pet’s neck with the help of a syringe and with little pain. If you have any questions, please contact us directly.
Wanting to travel with your pet? For a relaxed journey, we will provide you with the necessary travel profiles and veterinary certificates, and will be pleased to advise you on what you need to consider when travelling with your pet.
Care for chronically ill patients
Chronically ill patients are also very dear to our hearts, because they often need intensive care and close support. We’re happy to take the time to provide gentle but intensive treatment, and will help you find a suitable strategy for providing care at home.
Supporting elderly pets / palliative care
Elderly pets often need particularly intensive and loving care. Even despite weak joints and a frail heart, we can give your pet a high quality of life with the right treatment. If you have any questions or concerns, we’d be delighted to be your contact and take care of your pet.
Saying a final farewell
Unfortunately, we cannot help all our patients. Sometimes a tough decision has to be made. When there’s no more hope and your pet is suffering, it’s time to face your responsibility and accept the limits of what is medically feasible. This is also difficult for us as vets.
When it’s time to say a final farewell, we don’t want to leave you alone. We will advise, inform and support you as best we can. We can also come to your home to perform the euthanasia. Talk to us about a suitable date.
We work together with the Rosengarten animal burial services in Berlin. All animals that remain with us are cremated there. Alternatively, you’re welcome to choose your own pet undertaker.
Operations – Surgery
Our range of services also includes soft tissue surgery, i.e. surgical procedures on the skin and the organs of the abdominal cavity.
In addition to “routine” procedures such as neutering dogs or cats, our specialised veterinary surgeons also perform caesarean sections or more complicated procedures such as tumour removal. We can perform both outpatient and inpatient operations in our practice’s own operating theatre. This saves you and the patient an additional trip to a veterinary clinic. We use a very safe inhalation anaesthesia for all operations, so that your pet doesn’t have to endure any additional stress during the operation. A particular concern of ours is that the anaesthesia is closely monitored during the procedure. We monitor the patient and never lose sight of the state of health. If necessary, we can also care for the patient as an inpatient following the operation.
If necessary, we can admit frail or seriously ill animals as in-patients. There we can closely monitor and care for them. They are provided with the necessary therapy around the clock. And, of course, we ensure that they get plenty of love and affection, daily grooming and pampering!
During the ultrasound examination we can show your pet’s internal organs in two dimensions. For example, the liver, kidney and spleen can be closely examined and assessed. The movements of the heart and intestines can also be easily examined. This examination method is particularly gentle and can be carried out on your pet when it’s awake.
With our modern, digital X-ray equipment, we can view high-resolution images immediately on the screen. The high level of detail enables lung, heart, abdominal cavity and bone structures to be precisely assessed. The radiation exposure is also significantly reduced compared with conventional X-ray machines. If your pet is cooperative, X-rays can be performed without anaesthesia and are therefore a quick and low-risk diagnostic procedure.
In our extensive in-house laboratory, we can carry out the most important examinations directly on site and thus detect, for example, whether your animal is suffering from diabetes or has parasites.
These includes urine and faeces examinations, blood tests and cytological samples, e.g. from the ears. The quick results enable us to adjust the therapy in a targeted way within a very short time and know what is wrong with your animal.
Diagnosing heart disease
Animals can also have heart disease. Some diseases are congenital, others acquired. Unfortunately, animals get heart disease especially in old age. The good news – you can treat heart disease very well and improve your pet’s quality of life in the long run! With ECG, echocardiography and X-rays, we can accurately assess your pet’s cardiac health and provide targeted therapy if necessary. Various diagnostic steps are necessary to assess and treat heart disease, such as X-raying, heart ultrasound or ECG. We can do all this at our Bärenwiese practice.
The diagnosis begins by listening to your pet with a stethoscope. If we detect irregularities, we perform a heart ultrasound (echocardiography) here at our clinic. It’s a very gentle examination in which we use special ultrasound heads to examine the heart in detail and detect heart defects. By X-raying the heart, we can get an idea of the size and also check whether water is already deposited in the lungs.
An ECG (electrocardiogram) provides information on how regularly the patient’s heart is beating or whether there are interruptions and rhythm disturbances. This procedure provides us with comprehensive information about your pet’s cardiac health. Thanks to therapies tailored to individual patients, your pet can in many cases still look forward to a long life. We continuously monitor our heart patients very intensively during the therapy and recommend a comprehensive check-up once a year.
