Veterinarians - Torquay, VIC
Torquay Animal House Veterinary Clinic & Hospital located in Torquay specialises in surgical procedures, diagnostics, laboratory tests, endoscopy, ultrasonography and many more.
Torquay Animal House Veterinary Clinic & Hospital understands that your pets are a much loved member of your family and deserve the highest quality healthcare. We do everything possible to assure the best opportunity for them by providing them with outstanding veterinary services and after hours care.
We have all the toys for doing a range of surgeries and diagnostics – 3 x Anaesthetic machines, 5 x drip pumps, 3 x pulse oximeters for monitoring patients. We have recently invested in special patient warming devices for anaesthetics. We do a lot of dentistry & dental surgery, deal with all kinds of injuries, tumours (internal and external) as well as the routine desexings and so on.
We have an inhouse lab that allows us to do blood tests and all kinds of diagnostics; we have digital radiology, a new ultrasound machine (recent upgrade investment of over $50k) which gives us the capability to look inside animals to diagnose all kinds of problems and accurately collect important samples by ultrasound guided techniques. We have endoscopy, ECG & blood pressure monitors. All kinds of scopes for looking down ears, up noses & we even have special eye exam equipment. Essentially we have a lot of sophisticated tools and the knowledge to use them when needed.
Our vets cover the whole range of services that our patients require. We do behaviour consults, skin diseases, etc. We are the only vet practice this side of Melbourne that provides Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine. Our ever popular puppy preschool also runs throughout the year.
We are happy to do house calls when necessary to treat sick animals – although it is best to get them to the practice for all sorts of reasons. The home visits we do are mostly for euthanasias which is sad, but some people prefer their pet be peacefully put to sleep in their most familiar surroundings, and we quite understand that.
