Our East Kew veterinary clinic offers extensive services for your furry, scaly and feathery friends

Vets on Balwyn is an East Kew vet clinic dedicated to helping you care for your pet. Our services are curated to cater to any concerns you might have about your pet, from medical problems to behaviourial issues. Above all else, we are a team of highly skilled animal lovers who want to see your pets as healthy as you do.

Not sure what’s wrong with your pet?

No one wants to see their best friend and family member in pain – especially when you aren’t sure what the issue is. Luckily, with the diagnostic equipment at our East Kew veterinary clinic, you won’t have to wonder. Our state-of-the-art x-ray and ultrasound technology will ensure the problem is identified quickly and efficiently.

For issues that do not need to be identified by x-rays, a consultation with our talented staff can clear up your doubts. Once the issue has been noted, our staff can point you to a helpful treatment or preventative measure.

Services for dogs

Dogs often won’t show any symptoms of an illness in its early stages. Therefore, it’s imperative to bring your dog in for an annual checkup. Once your dog gets older and becomes a senior dog, you should be bringing him or her to see your vet twice a year.

Vets on Balwyn offer a number of services for your dog:

  • Vaccinations against major viral diseases affecting dogs in Australia, such as kennel cough
  • Parasite control and prevention against ticks, fleas, intestinal worms and heartworm
  • Weight management advice and programmes
  • Surgery, from de-sexing to soft tissue surgical operations
  • Dental care and take-home advice
  • Obedience school for puppies, or behaviourial consultations for older dogs

Services for cats

Like dogs, cats may not exhibit signs of pain or infection until much after the fact. Therefore, you should bring in your adult cat for a yearly checkup, and senior cats for a bi-yearly checkup.

Our vets can recommend the following services for your cat:

  • Vaccinations to prevent major viral diseases affecting cats in Australia, such as cat flu
  • Parasite control and prevention against ticks, fleas, intestinal worms and heartworm
  • Weight management advice and programmes
  • Surgery, from de-sexing to soft tissue surgical operations
  • Dental care and take-home advice
  • Cat boarding services for when you are away from home

Services for pocket pets

Pocket pets include rabbits, guinea pigs, mice and rats. However, Vets on Balwyn also offer services for reptiles and birds. Again, it is highly recommended that you bring your pocket pet, reptile or bird to us for an annual check-up.

Our services for pocket pets include:

  • Vaccinations that help to prevent viruses such as distemper in ferrets, or caliciviral disease in rabbits
  • Nail trimming and wellness examinations
  • Dental care and take-home advice
  • Surgery, from de-sexing to lump removals
  • Blood tests
  • Nutritional advice and environmental counselling
