Consultations

We are able to provide a consultation service for all primary health problems for your pets.

We offer routine services such as vaccination, preventative health care for heartworm, flea and worm prevention, as well as advice and consultation on dental care, behavioural problems, skin problems, diet and grooming advice. We offer routine services such as microchipping.

We have separate dedicated consulting rooms for cats and dogs, and run by appointment, ensuring waiting times are kept to a minimum.

We always have a veterinary surgeon on premises, so if your pet needs immediate treatment we will always be able to see you during opening hours.

Our consulting hours are 8.30am - 7.30pm Monday to Friday, 9am-4pm Saturday, and 10am-12pm Sunday and selected public holidays.

Anaesthesia and Surgery

At Vermont Value Vet we are able to provide a range of surgical procedures at the hospital, including routine desexings, surgery for cancer conditions, as well as more complex soft tissue and orthopaedic conditions. We have a separate dedicated surgical suite, awarding our facility hospital status.

We are able to tackle most surgical cases at Vermont, and for the more complex surgeries that we would normally refer, we have an experienced veterinary surgeon that we are able to call in if needed. This means that we are able to perform the more difficult surgeries in-house instead of referring them to the specialists.

We use the most up-to-date anaesthetic protocols, tailored to each individual patient. We are able to offer pre-anaesthetic blood tests to assess your petís health before surgery. We provide peri-operative and post-operative pain relief for all surgical cases, and intravenous fluid therapy where indicated.

We use state-of-the-art monitoring equipment during anaesthesia as standard, which monitors oxygen saturation via pulse oximetry, cardiac trace via ECG, blood pressure measurement, and computerized heart, pulse, and respiratory rates.

We have a dental base unit with high and low powered drill, and an IM-3 dental unit for routine descaling.

Laboratory

We have specific facilities to run blood and urine tests in-clinic. This allows us to obtain immediate results for certain disease conditions, resulting in swift diagnosis. For more complex pathology, we have access to ASAP Pathology Laboratory, providing same day results.

 Veterinary Dispensary

We stock a wide range of non-prescription medical products at Vermont Value Vet, including various treatments for flea control, intestinal worming, and heartworm prevention. We also stock a wide range of skin and coat care products. For animals on long-term prescription medications, although we have most of these medications in stock, it is advised to give twenty-four hours notice to ensure these prescriptions can be filled. You are welcome to email the surgery on nurses@vvvet.com.au to request these prescriptions; alternately call the surgery on 9873 1113. All animals on long term prescription medications will require regular check ups as part of the on-going management of these chronic cases. The time interval for these check ups is often every six months.

Hospitalisation

We are able to provide a hospitalisation service for your pet if medical conditions require this. For animals on permanent prescription medications, we are able to offer a hospitalisation service while you are on vacation. We have separate dog and cat wards on site.

Senior Pet Health Screens

We are able to provide a senior pet health check up to assess your pet in their later years. We are able to offer a health screen that assesses blood pressure, and blood and urine tests that assess liver function, kidney function, thyroid function, and diabetes. We can assess arthritic conditions, and tailor management programs for specific diseases.

Weight Clinics

We offer a weight clinic service on a monthly basis. If your pet is overweight we can offer a service including the use of a prescription weight reduction diet plus monthly weigh-ins till target weights are achieved. This ensures a healthier and fitter pet that is less prone to certain diseases.

All family members are encouraged to participate; please call the surgery for more information or if you are interested.
