Surgery is needed for many pets. Whether this be elective surgery such as desexing, or more complex surgery when a pet has become unwell or been injured, we have an experienced team to provide this. The thought of surgery can often be daunting, so here at Merewether Veterinary Hospital we will do everything we can to make your pet feel comfortable and you feel well informed about the procedure. Most surgical procedures will require a general anaesthetic and a stay in hospital. Our vets are skilled in performing both soft tissue and orthopaedic surgeries, and our team of nurses are dedicated to all aspects of patient care- from the moment they come into hospital, monitoring during the anaesthetic, and throughout recovery. We are always available to answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding your pet undergoing surgery.
When we believe your pet would benefit from more specialised care, we can refer you and your pet locally or to Sydney, to a specialist surgeon. Our aim is always to strive for the best possible outcome for our patients.
