Surgery can be a stressful time for both you and your pet. We think it’s a good idea to keep you well informed about the procedures and processes that are required before, during and after surgery.
Our expert team is dedicated to providing your pet with the best possible outcomes. Our Vets perform desexing, soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures.
Your pet will be in the capable hands of our experienced staff and we are focused on making this processes as smooth and safe as possible.
We aim to ensure any surgery day is as stress free for you and your pet as possible.
Your pet's safety is our highest priority.
- Dogs and cats are housed in separate areas, to ensure they don't disturb or frustrate each other
- We have separate surgical procedure rooms and operating theatres
- We use modern anaesthetic machines and the safest anaesthetic drugs and gases
- Your pet’s vital signs are monitored both electronically and by the surgical team, who will be with your pet until he or she has completely recovered from the anaesthetic
Please note: Late and early pick-up and drop off of your pet is offered, for added convenience.
Please contact us at Dr Paws Oxley Highway Veterinary Hospital if you'd like any more information.
