About Our Surgical Procedures

As animal lovers ourselves, we understand that it is stressful for you and for your pet when they need to have a surgical procedure performed under anaesthetic. Surgery for them is serious with some possible risks, just as it is for us. We want to reassure you that your beloved pets will receive the very best of care before, during and after their surgical procedure. Our facility is equipped with the most advanced anaesthetic monitoring equipment and our experienced vet nurses will closely monitor your pet through every step of their surgery.

After your pet has been admitted and settled into the hospital, they will be given pain relief medication prior to their surgery. Once the procedure has been completed they will receive ongoing pain relief during their recovery from the anaesthesia. Pain relief will be continued as needed, for the remainder of their recovery time with us at the hospital. You may be given additional pain relieving medication to give to your furry friend while they finish their recovery at home.

Common Procedures

One of the most common surgical procedures we perform is the desexing of pet dogs and cats. These procedures are very safe and provide numerous health benefits to male and female pets as well as preventing unwanted pregnancies.

Other commonly performed surgeries include;

  • BOAS surgery (for French Bulldogs, Pugs and other Brachycephalic/short nosed breeds)
  • Cruciate Ligament Surgery (TPLO and TTA procedures )
  • Luxating Patella Surgery
  • Complex fracture repairs
  • Removal of masses/tumours, dental procedures and suturing of wounds.

Our highly skilled vet team and technically advanced equipment enables us to safely perform more complex surgical procedures when required. These may include the removal of swallowed items which can cause blockages, tears and internal bleeding. Bladder stone removal, liver and spleen surgery, complex fracture repair and eye and ear surgeries are also performed in our operating theatre. For orthopaedic procedures we use ultrasound guidance and advanced nerve stimulating technology to provide regional nerve blocks, allowing the patient to wake up pain free after surgery.
