Facilities overview

Preventive care

Yearly vaccination, deworming, preventive examinations adapted according to age... to improve the quality of life of your animal from birth to its senior days.

Animal behaviour

Behavioural disorders are common in our pets. They require early treatment to give your pet the best chance of success.


ARIOU vet practice offers neutering and soft tissue surgery, with dedicated support throughout the operation and special attention to pain control.

Medical imaging

We are equipped with the latest equipment to be able to carry out precision diagnoses: radiology, abdominal and cardiac ultrasound and laryngoscopy.

Veterinary medicine

A careful and rigorous examination "from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail" is systematically carried out, in line with the best protocols fixed by current standards of veterinary medicine.

Cattery and kennel

In order to carry out certain examinations, when a surgical operation is scheduled or when a treatment cannot be carried out at home, hospitalisation of the animal may be necessary.
