Bateau Bay Veterinary Hospital
Veterinarians - Killarney Vale, NSW
We deal with the whole range of dog and cat health problems.
Most of our activity is surgery, both soft tissue and orthopaedic. A large part of this is routine procedures with keyhole surgery for dogs and cats for de-sexing. This helps to reduce wound breakdown potential and post-surgical pain, with internal skin sutures for dogs reducing skin closure failure from over-grooming and removing the need to return for suture removal.
For our internal medicine work we also have useful devices like Doppler ultrasound, and an endoscope for examining the oesophagus, stomach, duodenum (first part of small bowel), trachea and far less commonly than in humans, the colon.
We also have a laparoscope for examination and biopsy in the abdomen in certain circumstances. We have recently upgraded our X-ray facilities with digital radiology to make imaging more efficient with some improvements in capability.
