Surgeries

As a team, our veterinarians and nurses have more than 20 years of experience in surgery. They will help your pet feel better in no time!

Orthopaedic Surgery

Orthopaedic surgery can help your pet with a wide range of issues, from a fracture or broken bone to dysplasia.

Many veterinarians no longer perform these procedures in practice; instead, they send orthopaedic cases to a specialist centre. At Melbourne Pet Surgery, we can help your pet get back on its feet again.

Eye Surgery

If your cat or dog is having trouble seeing, it may be time to think about eye surgery. Certain breeds are more likely to get diseases like meibomian gland tumours or prolapsed third eyelids that don't close properly. Our vets are here to help them see again.

Abdominal Surgery

If your dog or cat is experiencing gastric issues, your pet may have consumed something they shouldn't have. Abdominal surgery may be necessary if a patient cannot pass a foreign object trapped in their abdomen.

Cancer Surgery

We know how upsetting and heartbreaking it may be to receive a cancer diagnosis for your beloved pet, which is why we do everything we can to assist you, and your pet to live out their remaining days together in comfort and joy. We provide a comprehensive range of services in one location, reducing the burden on our clients.

Soft Tissue Surgery

Melbourne Pet Surgery offers soft tissue surgeries such as BOAS surgery and wound stitch ups.

All of our surgery patients are given painkillers and antibiotics as part of their treatment (opiates and NSAIDs).

As part of our pre-anaesthetic blood testing, we can recommend and carry out pre-surgery blood tests to check for any underlying medical and health conditions in your pet. Cardiovascular and kidney function are supported throughout most surgeries by intravenous (IV) or subcutaneous (SC) fluid infusions.

We induce anaesthesia in cats, pocket pets, and some small dogs. A quick induction means your pet will be breathing 100% oxygen from the start of the induction process. We have found that when this technique is used, your pet doesn't go into apnoea (where it stops breathing), making their procedure safer. This is especially true for older cats and small pets.

We put your pet on heating pads during and after surgery as the anaesthetic wears off to keep them warm. Once they've recovered, we'll put them back in their cage.
