We have a highly skilled surgical team, who provide a full range of orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery to our clients as well as a large number of local and interstate veterinary practices. Our surgeons are always available before and after surgery to discuss all treatment options, costs and after-care. We strongly believe in the use of high quality pain relief for all surgical procedures and postoperative recovery and welcome any questions and enquiries you may have in this regard.
We routinely desex cats, dogs, ferrets, rabbits and guinea pigs. In general we recommend desexing for any pet that is not being used for breeding.
Desexing is generally a day procedure but you can elect to have your pet stay overnight if you wish. On discharge, a veterinarian will carefully take you through the simple after-care requirements and answer any questions.
With few exceptions, all animals anaesthetised in our hospital are intubated and anaesthetised with Isoflurane gas, one of the safest anaesthetic agents currently available. All animals are fully examined and assessed by our anaesthetists, as each animal gets an individualised anaesthetic regimen. Each animal is carefully monitored by one of our veterinary nurses before, during and after anaesthesia to ensure the safety of your pet. If your animal is over 8 years old, we generally recommend a Pre-Anaesthetic Blood Screen to ensure that they are in good health and getting the appropriate anaesthetic regime.
Dental disease is a common and serious disease affecting dogs, cats, rabbits and rodents. Long standing dental problems can cause severe damage to the heart, kidney and other organs. If your pet is having difficulty eating, has smelly breath or the teeth aren’t shiny and white, call in for a dental check-up. Dental problems can be solved by a range of therapies including diet, teeth cleaning and dentistry under general anaesthetic.
