Orthopaedic and Soft Tissue Surgery

Is there anything more stressful than the realisation that your pet needs surgery? We understand that completely, and it’s important to us that we do everything in our power to make sure you feel as comfortable with the process, and your pet is as safe as possible.


If your pet requires surgery, your veterinarian will discuss the procedure with you in detail, including recovery expectations, so that there are no surprises when it’s time to go home. This includes clear and candid discussions about cost, as well as payment plan options through VetPay and Zippay.    


Our hospital boasts a double sterile operating suite open at any time of the day, or night. Our surgeons perform a great variety of surgeries, which range from planned lump removals to emergency derotation surgery of twisted stomachs. We also have the ability to bring in Melbourne’s best surgical specialists to save transporting your pet to specialist surgery clinics, and then back again.


At any given time of the day, our surgical theatre can be supporting;
