Our Services



Health Check

Regular check up is one of the most important services we can provide for your pet. A complete physical examination from head to toe, nose to tail will allow us to treat any existing health issues but also gives us the best chance to pick up any medical condition early before it becomes a threat. This is an opportunity to discuss any concerns you may have, and we can also provide you with the latest information about general health care. And yes, dogs and cats age differently to humans, so once a year for them is like us visiting the doctor or dentist every 5-7 years!

Routine Surgery

Boroondara Vetl Hospital has a state-of-the-art surgical suite, which includes independent positive pressure ventilation to ensure a sterile environment, electrocautery, suction unit, electronically controlled heated surgical table, and full instrumentation, in addition to high level anaesthetic monitoring. We offer routine operations such as desexing, as well as advanced procedures such as orthopaedics and cancer surgery.

Postoperative care is critical to the success of any procedure, and at our hospital all surgical patients receive adequate nutrition during recovery, and are kept comfortable and warm. Pain relief management is paramount and starts before surgery. It commonly includes more than one type of pain medication that is given regularly and pre-emptively before any sign of pain is shown. This in addition to the compassionate care provided by our trained staff.

Digital Radiology

Boroondara Vet Hospital uses modern technology to capture high quality x-ray images. Our Kodak Point-of-Care CR 140 digital x-ray system provides images in 63 seconds. This enables us to obtain accurate diagnostic imaging, while significantly decreasing the patient’s time required under sedation or anaesthesia for this procedure.

Under our vet care hospitalised pets, whether sick or undergoing a procedure, are closely monitored during their stay. You can be rest assured that at least one of our team will be watching your pet at all times (yes, we have our lunches sitting in front of the cages, if not inside one next to a recovering patient). The design of our facilities allows direct observation of our patients at any time. For safest and best practice, critically ill or injured patients are offered referral to a closely located 24 hour staffed pet hospital to ensure close monitoring and adequate treatment is continued overnight.

Referral to Specialists

Patients are referred where they require a special diagnostic test (such as MRI or CT Scan), and assessment by a specialist.

Nutritional and Behaviour Advice

As strong believers that good nutrition is essential for a pet’s good health, we can recommend a range of premium quality pet food to cater for any pet’s taste buds, size, life stages and life styles. In addition, we offer veterinary prescription diets, which is an important part of the management of several medical conditions such as obesity, kidney disease, gastrointestinal disorders, bladder stones, arthritis and diabetes amongst others.

Behaviour problems can be simple, and are sometimes resolved in a short period with the right advice. Alternately, they can be quite challenging and time consuming. For all pet issues, we recommend a thorough vet consultation to ensure there is no contributing medical condition.
