Procedures offered at our Balwyn animal hospital

Our Balwyn veterinary surgery is equipped for a range of procedures including:

De-Sexing

This is the most common soft tissue procedure we perform at our animal hospital and it is recommended for cats and dogs of both sexes. Vets on Balwyn recommend de-sexing animals at around 5-6 months of age to prevent unwanted litters as well as reduce the likelihood of some health issues later in life.


Soft Tissue Surgery

Vets on Balwyn also offers a range of other soft tissue surgeries including anal gland removal, skin biopsies, ear and oral surgeries as well as abscess removal.


Orthopedic Surgery

Our orthopedic procedures are designed to treat a range of common musculoskeletal injuries and health conditions such as fractures, dislocations and cruciate repair.


Pre-anaesthetic blood testing

Although most standard veterinary surgical procedures have a high success rate, there are still some risks associated with surgery. Many of these risks relate to the anaesthetic which is administered to ensure the comfort of your pet. Pre anesthetic blood testing is one way we can minimise these risks. This optional blood testing service offered to our patients before surgery checks vital organ function and can sometimes pick up on pre-existing conditions which require a modified dose of anaesthesia.
