Once your pet is a patient of ours, we set up a personalised profile that sends out an automatic reminder as to when your pet’s vaccinations are due. This takes all the worry out of you having to remember specific dates and ensures your pet is always up to date with their vaccinations and preventative healthcare.
All pets at Allambie Vet undergoing desexing procedures are provided with a pain relief plan before, during and after the surgery. We aim to make your pet's procedure a pain-free experience.
The best way to clean your pet’s teeth is with a pet toothbrush or a mini tooth brush designed for small children. There is even pet toothpaste that comes in a range of flavours! Both of these are available for purchase at Allambie Vet. Do not use human toothpastes as they contain fluoride and occasionally xylitol, both of which are toxic to pets.
When treating skin disease we must first investigate and resolve any current secondary infection. This is performed in-house by collecting and assessing skin samples under the microscope and, if required, a treatment plan will be put into place.
The recovery time for soft tissue surgery varies depending on the patient and the size of the procedure. For larger procedures we may expect an extended recovery, whereas smaller procedures will have a much shorter timeframe. On average, most superficial surgeries will have a recovery period of 10-14 days, with an exponential improvement in the first 2-3 days.
The most common orthopaedic surgery we see are knee and cruciate ligament correction surgeries such as Tibial Plateau Levelling Osteotomies (TPLOs) and Medial Luxating Patella surgeries (MLPs).
On arrival your pet will be triaged by one of our experienced team. Critical animals will be immediately seen and treated. Unwell, but stable, animals will be seen by the next available veterinarian to provide treatment and care as soon as possible.
House calls are usually performed Monday to Friday between 12pm and 3pm. House calls need to be booked 24 hours in advance. Contact us if you feel your pet needs to be seen immediately.
If you come across injured wildlife, always approach slowly. If you are unsure, contact a Wildlife agency such as WIRES or the Sydney Metropolitan Wildlife Service for advice. Wrap them up in a towel as it makes them feel more secure, and take them to your nearest vet ASAP for treatment. Remember to try to keep stress to the injured animal to a minimum, as stress can actually be the factor that can cause the wildlife to die.
