Templestowe based Veterinary Surgery and Animal Hospital

For over 30 years, Vets on Parker has supported pets and their families in the Templestowe, Lower Templestowe and Bulleen areas with quality care facilities. Having an animal hospital and recovery area onsite where we can perform routine procedures enables us to provide our clients and their owners with access to the highest quality veterinary care. It also means pets can be cared for close to home and by familiar people, taking much of the stress out of undergoing a surgical procedure.

 

Key features of our onsite veterinary surgery

  • Highly experienced staff of veterinary surgeons and nurses
  • Fully equipped surgery and recovery facilities
  • Onsite pathology lab and imaging technology
  • Optional pre-anaesthetic blood testing

 

Surgical Procedures Performed at our Animal Hospital

Our Templestowe veterinary surgery is equipped for a range of routine surgeries including:

De-Sexing

De-sexing surgery is the most common soft tissue procedure performed onsite at our animal hospital. Vets on Parker recommends de-sexing male and female cats and dogs at around 5-6 months of age to prevent health complications later in life as well as unwanted litters.


Soft Tissue Surgery

In addition to de-sexing, Vets on Parker offers a range of other standard soft tissue surgeries designed to treat a range of common pet health concerns ranging from anal gland removal through to skin biopsies and the removal of skin cancers.


Orthopedic Surgery

Although less common, Vets on Parker does offer a number of orthopedic surgeries at our Templestowe animal hospital to treat musculoskeletal related injuries and health conditions.


Pre-anaesthetic blood testing

Most pets will undergo some type of surgical procedure at some point during their lives. Nonetheless, surgery does come with some risks. To mitigate some of the common problems related to administering an anaesthetic, Vets on Parker offer optional pre-anaesthetic blood testing. This fast, simple and painless procedure allows us to check the function of your pet’s vital organs. In some cases, these blood tests reveal underlying conditions which necessitate a modified dose of anaesthetic.
