West Toowoomba Veterinary Surgery (07) 4636 2027
Because of the shorter lifespan of our pets, we stress the importance of an annual physical examination. Thorough check-ups and preventive care can help alleviate serious health problems. We offer a wide range of veterinary services to keep your companions feeling their best:
Diagnostic and Therapeutic Services: Our hospital is equipped to provide diagnostic and therapeutic services to care for your pets' complete health care needs.
Surgical Services: Our state-of-the-art surgical suite provides for the performance of a wide variety of surgical procedures. For more complicated cases, eg hip replacements, complicated fractures, etc, we offer a referral to one of several specialist surgical practices in Brisbane.
Mobile Vet: Sometimes it is easiest or best for your pet to be seen in the comfort of their own home. We are able to do house calls for all routine or non-routine medical services. While there is an extra charge for this service, it can be the less stressful for pet and owner. We do ask that house calls to be arranged as far in advance as possible.
Anaesthesia: We utilize the safest available anesthetics to provide an extra margin of safety, especially for our older or high-risk patients. All animals under anaesthesia are placed on intravenous fluids to maintian their blood pressure. Using the most modern equipment (Doppler ultrasound, pulse oximeters and respiratory monitors), the patient's vital signs are constantly monitored during all anaesthetic procedures.
Pharmacy: We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventatives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets for patients with special dieary needs.
Boarding: We offer a boarding service for birds, rodents and reptiles. Each boarded animal receives individual care and attention from our staff, and is fed a specialised diet.
Bathing and grooming: Posh Paws grooming is now on-site and offers bathing and grooming of cats and dogs Monday to Friday with hydrobathing only on Saturday.
Emergency Care: We have a veterinarian on call for emergencies at all times outside our normal business hours. To contact the veterinarian, all you have to do is ring the Surgery's phone number. Please have a pen and paper ready to take down details of how to contact the vet on call.
Euthanasia: Please feel free to come and discuss this with us. It is always a difficult decision but one which is often in the best interests of your pet. It can be done at the surgery or in the privacy of your own home. We can arrange disposal afterwards or we recommend Beric at Pets Rest in Peace. He can be contacted on 46330290 or www.petsrip.com.au.
