Kleintierpraxis im Fischerhaus



Our digital X-ray unit produces images immediately without any waiting time for you or us. Since 2017 we've expanded and now own one of the only digital X-ray machines for dental imaging in this region.

lab diagnostics

Only 15 minutes after drawing a blood sample, we can produce a full blood count for your pet as well as perform a number of quick tests in case of suspected parasite infestation.

vaccination status

In order to determine the vaccination status of your dog or cat, it is possible to conduct a quick test in our practice and decide whether your pet needs vaccinating or not.

Physical therapy for dogs

Dog-physiotherapist Sebastian Geiger works with his patients in our practice or in your home. The necessary pre-examination as well as needed X-ray images will are done in our practice.

tick-related disease

Exotic diseases that are caused by tick bites or flea infestation like Ehrlichiosis, Rickettsiosis, Anaplasmosis, and Lyme disease are becoming more frequent for cats and dogs. With the help of our reference laboratory in Freiburg, we can produce an antibody count and treat your pet.


Our practice is easily accessible, our waiting room has level access and is wheelchair-friendly.
