Templestowe based Veterinary Surgery and Animal Hospital

Surgical Procedures Performed at our Animal Hospital
Our Templestowe veterinary surgery is equipped for a range of routine surgeries including:
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.
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.
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.
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.
