We Strive To Make Your Pet Thrive



Australian Veterinary Hospital


 

 Surgery and Anesthesia


Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures.
The Australian Veterinary Hospital utilizes the safest available anesthetics and  the most up to date anesthetic protocol available. to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. Using the most modern equipment, the patient's vital signs are monitored during all anesthetic procedures.


at the AVH we always place an endotracheal tube and oxygenate our patients during our operations using isoflorane the safest available for pets in gas anesthesia. We place intravenous catheters during anesthesia to allow the administration of intravenous fluids and analgesia. We use multimodal monitoring and have special monitors that can watch the blood levels of carbon dioxide and oxygen . We have blood pressure monitors and ecgs too. Anesthesia tailored to the individual pet's needs - the pet's age or disease may dictate a special protocol for safety. Spaying and neutering of your pets Orthopedic surgery

 

Radiology 


Our on-site, modern X-ray equipment provides high quality radiographs to aid in the quick diagnosis of many disorders. Complete X-ray capabilities - including Special procedures – myelograms & Barium studies.

 

Dentistry


Dental problems are very common in pet animals, and painful abscesses and extractions can often be avoided by preventative de-scaling with our ultrasound machine. When teeth are in need of extracting we have a range of specific dental surgical instruments and high speed drills (very similar to those which you find in your own dentist) to make this process as quick and painless as possible. We also have dental radiography (xrays) which allows us to look at the roots of the teeth and detect problems such as tooth root abscesses which may not be visible on oral examination alone. Being able to visualise the roots of the teeth can also prevent unnecessary extractions as in some cases the roots will have turned to bone and do not need any further treatment.
We perform dental scaling and polishing (prophylaxis) for dogs and cats. To do this we utilize ultrasonic scaling technology and a high speed polishing unit. In addition, during the dental procedure, we evaluate the oral cavity for health and offer solutions for diseased teeth and gums (gingivitis).

 

Hospitalisation


In-Patient continous care and monitoring is provided for all our in-patients – but dependant on a patient’s needs and level of intensive care of the patient. Our veterinary team are always monitoring and supervising our inpatients – maintaining the best care possible for those hospitalised patients.  in our Hospital we utilise a variety of cages and kennel sizes dependant on patients needs, all stainless steel cage and kennelling allowing for optimum cleaning and thus reducing infection risk, we separate cat and dog wards,  and cages are positioned in such a way that individual patients are never face-to-face and thus avoids potential confrontation and stress for our pets

 

Ultrasound


 Is the best non invasive diagnostic procedure that allows much greater diagnostic capabilities on your pet yielding a lot of information with least harm or distress. We can see into the abdomen and examine all soft tissue organs generating too much information and clues about the status of your pet with least risk and pain. But unfortunately it has a limited scope of use, for example, we can not use to detect bone fractures.
