Preventative Health Care 

Regular check-ups and yearly vaccinations are an important part of keeping your pet healthy.

We provide a thorough health check of your pet at each vaccination and encourage pet owners to protect their pet against parasites including; heartworm, intestinal worms, fleas and ticks.

 

Hospital Facilities 

Our individual dog and cat rooms, and large animal runs allow patients to recover in a comfortable environment. All pens are larger than regulation size to allow your pets to feel right at home during their hospital stay. All rooms are climate controlled with ducted heating and cooling, and comfortable dry-bed bedding is provided.

 

Surgery

The hospital provides a wide range of surgical procedures including routine desexing, internal and skin cancer treatments, soft tissue and orthopaedic repairs.

For more complex cases we refer to a variety of specialists in Melbourne. As with human hospitals all our surgical procedures are performed in a sterile environment and all instruments are autoclaved to ensure sterility. 

The safest gaseous anesthetics are used and are constantly monitored by qualified and trained nursing staff.

  

Imaging

Xray facilities are available at the hospital to aid in the diagnosis of a range of illnesses and injuries. On site, automatic processing facilities mean quick results and less hassle for patients and their owners. Endoscopic examinations are also performed on site.

 

Pathology

In-house pathology is available at the hospital providing us with fast and accurate results for a variety of blood tests. Pre-anesthetic profiles are offered to all patients undergoing surgery and are recommended for all animals over 10 years of age.

These tests provide us with information about your pet's kidneys and liver function, enabling us to diagnose conditions such as diabetes, check for low protein levels, anemia, and signs of infection.

 

Puppy Preschool

Puppy preschools are run at the hospital. Classes are available for pups between 8-16 weeks of age, provided they have had at least their first vaccination. A series of 3 classes will teach your pup socialisation skills and basic obedience training which are vital for pups of this age.
