    High Surgical Safety Standards

    At Elgar Road Vet Hospital near Burwood, we pride ourselves on providing optimal care to our patients, before, during and after their surgical procedure.  

    • We know that every pet is unique and requires an individualised approach to anesthesia. That's why we conduct pre-anaesthetic blood testing to assess the function of your pet's kidneys and liver, and levels of important proteins, blood cells, platelets, and electrolytes. This information is crucial to ensuring a safe and smooth anesthetic and post-operative recovery.  
    • Ensuring that your pet's blood pressure remains stable during anesthesia is critical, and intravenous (IV) fluids can help with this. Surgery can cause blood pressure fluctuations, even in healthy animals, due to anesthesia's impact. Administering IV fluids can assist in maintaining proper hydration levels and ensuring that your pet's body functions correctly.  
    • We use high safety level anaesthetic agents to prioritise the safety and well-being of pets during surgeries. We take a personalised approach to the selection of anesthetic, considering each pet's medical history and individual requirements.  
    • To guarantee the safety and success of your pet's surgery, we use monitoring equipment to measure their blood pressure continuously. This enables us to quickly detect any fluctuations in blood pressure and take the necessary steps to address them.  
    • In addition to monitoring blood pressure, we measure your pet’s oxygen saturation, respiratory rate, and heart rate. This allows us to make necessary adjustments to their anaesthesia and treatment, ensuring a safe and successful surgery.  
    • Our team carefully monitors all aspects of your pet's surgery, including keeping detailed records of all parameters and drugs administered. This helps us to ensure that your pet is receiving the appropriate level of care and that their recovery is progressing as it should.  
    • We understand that sterility is vital during surgery to avoid the possibility of infection. Our veterinary team takes rigorous precautions to maintain strict sterility routines throughout your pet's surgery, including using specialised equipment and techniques to minimise the risk of contamination.  
    • Ensuring that your pet is comfortable and free from pain during and after surgery is crucial to us. Our veterinary team employs various pain management strategies, including pain medication and local anesthetics, to make sure your pet's recovery is as comfortable as possible.  
    • We understand that comfort plays a significant role in your pet's recovery. We take extra steps to ensure that your pet is comfortable during and after surgery, including heating the surgical tables and recovery cages to maintain a comfortable body temperature. 

    At Elgar Road Vet Hospital we understand how hard it is to leave a loved one in the hands of someone else.  It is our goal to give your pet the best of care during their stay in our surgery and by doing that put your mind at ease.

    What Our Client Say

    The vets and nurses here are all so incredible! We have been seen by atleast 5-6 different vets in our 3 years here and every single one of them are not only insanely knowledgeable, but so compassionate and trustworthy. They understanding how important our animals are to us and always suggest multiple options to make sure we’re happy with the actions. Their prices are standard vet prices, I never feel like I am being charged unreasonably, and everything is always explained in such great detail. They truly are so wonderful and it’s a joy bringing my cats to them.
    These guys have saved my dogs life and we could never be more appreciative. All the staff are amazing and so kind. Our dog Ollie actually loves coming to the vet even with all the needles and appointments! Emma is so lovely and caring. We’re forever grateful and will always take our furry friends to Elgar Road Vet.
