Consultations

Consultations are available Monday to Saturday at our clinic from 8am. Our standard consults are 20 minutes, slightly longer than normal, and in most cases we will be able to discuss all of your concerns in a single visit.

Cruciate Ligament Repair

The cruciate ligaments are two ligaments located in the knee joint (stifle) and form an ‘X’. They prevent forward, backward and rotational movement of the knee joint. Damage to the anterior cruciate ligament is reasonably common, particularly in large breed dogs and injury can vary from chronic changes (over a long period of time) to acute injury that results in a non-weight bearing lameness. Typically large and giant breeds may show signs from as early as 3-5 years old while smaller dogs tend to become clinical later at 6-8 years of age.

Dental Disease

Dental disease in dogs and cats is one of the most common findings at routine clinical examinations. Dental disease ranges from very mild redness of the gums (gingivitis) and discolouration of the teeth, up to severe changes involving tooth roots rotting, abscesses and nasty gum recession!

Emergencies

For all emergencies during hours please call the clinic on (03) 9809 2700.

Imaging

Medical imaging technology, such as x-ray, ultrasound, CT-scan and MRI play a focal role in contemporary veterinary clinics, allowing veterinarians to diagnose and treat medical conditions.

At Toorak road Veterinary clinic, we are able to complete all types of x-rays with access to an ultrasound at our sister clinic, Caulfield Vet Clinic.

Hospital Stays

The Toorak Road Veterinary Clinic has two dedicated hospital wards as well as our recovery area to provide our patients with the best environment to heal. Our two wards enable us to separate cat, dog and rabbit patients.

Microchipping

Microchips are a small rice grain sized chip that is implanted just under the skin in companion animals. They provide a permanent form of identification and will last the life of your animal. The chip itself is a non-reactive small object which has a unique number programed into it that will be linked to you and your pet.

Pathology

Toorak Road Veterinary Clinic boasts modern haematology and biochemistry machines enabling us to get valuable information regarding your pet’s health within an hour! The machines require only small sample sizes meaning we are able to run blood on our dog and cat patients as well as smaller rabbit and guinea pigs.

Pharmacy and Medications

Just like humans, your pets are likely to require medications throughout their lifetime, be it preventative or for treatment of illness. The clinic pharmacy stocks a wide range of medications at all times and we are able to order in more specific drugs as required for your pet.

Surgery

You can be confident knowing all of your vets at Toorak Rd Veterinary Clinic are very competent surgeons for both routine and more complex surgeries.

This means that in most cases, you don’t have to go through the stressful process of referral to specialists for your pet’s surgery.
