Surgical Services >


Desexing Surgery is conducted Monday to Friday in our dedicated sterile operating theatr – we are able to take care of dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs. We not only have advanced equipment to monitor your pet whilst anaesthetised (Heart & respiratory rate, oxygen levels, carbon dioxide levels, blood pressure, ECG & body temperature) but have a dedicated nurse monitoring your pet’s progress during the anaesthetic till recovery.

Dr Murray Collings heads the Surgery team and is particularly skilled in soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery having achieved post graduate qualifications in surgery at the University of Melbourne at Werribee.

We also offer Laparoscopic Speys (removal of ovaries) and
Cryptorchid castration (where one or both testicles fail to leave the abdomen). This minimally invasive has many benefits for both cats and dogs, with a much smaller surgical opening, your pet will recover faster and this means for dogs Рwe do not restrict activity for as long as conventional abdominal surgery.

Dr Murray Collings is a skilled Surgeon and has taken an interest in Laparoscopic surgery and is one of only a handful of non Specialist Vets in Melbourne offering this procedure.

Surgery Requirements for dogs and cats:

  • No food after 10pm the night prior to surgery
  • Normal access to water
  • Admission is by appointment with the Surgery Nurse. Please allow 10 minutes.
  • Discharge is by appointment with the Vet or Vet Nurse. Please allow 10 -20 minutes.
  • Revisits are by appointment, generally 3 days and 10 days post surgery to evaluate your pet’s progress.
  • To keep your pet safe and healthy whilst under General Anaesthesia all dogs and cats receive Intravenous Fluid Therapy.
  • We recommend Pre Anaesthetic Blood testing prior to anaesthesia. Blood testing gives us valuable insight into the internal organs of your pet – things we cannot detect on physical examination. Whilst in the vast majority of cases the blood test is normal, we are able to detect abnormalities affecting the red blood cells, liver and kidney function, that may affect your pet’s ability to metabolise the anaesthetic.
Super caring vets with lots of experience. Have been going here for 20 years through thick and thin. Dr Murray and Dr Anna are true pet lovers.
