Consultations by Appointment 7 Days a Week
We are open every day of the year except for public holidays. Consultations are by appointment so you won’t be left waiting, and you can see any of our veterinarians at the time of your choice. Animals involved in emergency cases will be given priority.
Emergencies outside of business hours are handled by Animal Emergency Centre on 02 6284 6344. They are located at 15/2 Yallourn St, Fyshwick.
If you require a house call during normal hours, please phone in advance and the receptionist will organise a time for you. Unfortunately, for legal and insurance reasons, our staff are not permitted to make after-hours house calls.
Cats and Dogs
Our highly qualified and experienced veterinary and nursing staff provide a complete range of medical, surgical and other services for cats and dogs. The full range of treatment options and costs will be explained to you so that you may make the best choice for you and your pet.
Rabbits, mice, guinea pigs and ferrets
Our veterinarians are experienced in treating Ferrets, Rabbits, Guinea pigs, Rats and Mice. We provide medical services, surgical and desexing services, nutritional and management advice for all these pets.
In conjunction with the RSPCA, we will always accept sick or injured wildlife for treatment and assessment to enable them treated and passed onto qualified carers for rehabilitation.
Due to the increasing knowledge base and facilities that are now available, we recommend routine bird work be attended at Inner South Veterinary Hospital. However, we are more than happy to assist in the case of an emergency.
Behaviour problems in dogs, cats, birds and other pets are common. We can help with barking, escaping, aggression, destructive behaviour, urinating and defecating in the house, feather picking and many more. If you think your pet has a behaviour problem, call the clinic and we will help you get things back on track.
Skin problems are common and often quite complex. If your pet shows signs of hair loss, itchiness, sore or inflamed areas on the coat and skin, they may need some help. We will be glad to help with sorting out the right diagnosis in difficult skin cases. The last decade has seen many wonderful advances in the treatment of skin conditions and many convenient and effective treatment options are available.
If you have recently lost a pet through illness or old age you may wish to talk to one of our vets about it. Sometimes it can also be useful to discuss the dying process when a pet is in the advanced stages of illness or very old. All our vets are happy and available to talk at any time about the death of a pet and the grieving process. We also acknowledge that it is sometimes hard to talk about these things at times. For those who may be interested, some information on coping with the loss of a pet.
