Pricing Guide

How we offer great prices

Business owners can choose to either make a high profit margin on a few select clients or to make a low profit margin on many clients. At Melbourne Pet Surgery, we have chosen to base our pricing policy on the low margin/high turnover philosophy. This ensures that more clients are able to afford important procedures for their pets. This has meant that we’re a very busy practice, are still profitable and can afford to pay our team well – all the while ensuring that your pets receive care they may miss out on otherwise.

We strongly believe that pets shouldn’t go without care as a result of economic reasons. Although we still need to pay our staff and other business costs, we aim to make our services affordable to ensure that as many clients as possible are able to access veterinary care. In fact, we provide services for a number of rescue groups – the more affordably we’re able to offer them care, the more pets they’ll be able to rescue.

  • Our high volume of patients allows us to charge significantly less for treatment and surgeries without sacrificing our profitability.
  • We rarely require that pets stay overnight (which also significantly reduces costs).
  • You will be able to care for your pet at home post-surgery - we’re more than happy to offer extensive care advice and are always available via phone or email.
  • Our experience ensures that your four legged friend is in safe hands; we can perform a number of complex surgeries.

Price guide

We are committed to offering more client-friendly prices than most other veterinary hospitals. In fact, our prices are often a quarter of the cost of the same procedure performed at a referral centre. Our lower price-point ensures that your pet will be able to enjoy the treatment they need and deserve. You will find a list of our most common surgeries and their starting prices below:
