Orthopaedic Surgery

Does your pet have a fracture, broken bone or dysplasia? They may need orthopaedic surgery. Many veterinary hospitals no longer provide orthopaedic procedures and refer these cases to specialist centres – but at South Eastern we can get your pet back on their feet.

Eye Surgery

If your pet is having trouble seeing clearly, eye surgery may be required. Certain breeds are more prone to conditions such as prolapsed third eyelids and meibomian gland tumours. Rest assured our experienced veterinarians are here to help.

Has your dog or cat eaten something they shouldn’t have? If a foreign body has become lodged anywhere in their abdomen and they are having trouble passing it, then abdomen surgery may be the appropriate course of action. Speak with our experienced team to learn more.

All patients receive pain relief and antibiotics (nsaids and opiates). Pre-anaesthetic blood testing is also performed where recommended and agreed to by clients to check the pets underlying medical health prior to surgery. IV (intravenous) or SC (subcutaneous) fluids are provided, as recommended, for most surgeries to support cardiac (heart) and renal (kidney) function during procedures.

Induction of anaesthesia is performed in pocket pets and cats and some small dogs using Isoflurane in Oxygen by mask – this provides rapid induction and allows the pet to be breathing 100% oxygen from the start of the induction process. Use of this technique prevents apnoea episodes (where a pet stops breathing) during induction, and makes the procedure much safer, particularly in our older cats and pocket pets. Anaesthesia is maintained using Isoflurane in Oxygen – this is the same anaesthetic regime in human hospitals.

Patients are placed on heating pads during procedures and are recovered on heating pads after the procedure/anaesthesia is finished, prior to being placed back into their cage once they have recovered.
