Our Services


Our consulting services run 7 days a week by appointment. Regular physical examinations are crucial to ensure your pet stays in optimum health.


Puppies and kittens require an initial course of 3 vaccinations. If too much time elapses after the annual vaccination is due, your pet may need a course of 2 injections to bring back up to date.


Councils now require by law that any new animal or pet moving into a new council area is microchipped before being registered.

Parasite Control

There are three main categories of parasites that are a major concern for dogs and cats health. These are intestinal worms, heartworm and fleas.

Premium and Prescription Pet Foods

We stock a range of premium quality foods including Hills Science Diet and Advance diets that are specially formulated for all your pet’s life stages.


We recommend the best age to desex your puppy or kitten is 5-6 months, however if you have purchased your pet through a welfare agency they may have been desexed as young as 10 weeks of age.


At Glenhuntly Road Veterinary Clinic we are equipped to perform a variety of surgical procedures, ranging from desexings, suturing wounds or removing lumps to more complex surgeries.


This is one of your most commonly provided services. Healthy teeth are a very important part of your pets general health.


We have recently purchased a state of the art digital radiography. This new digital x-ray allows us to take clearer and quicker x-rays and reduced the time you pet may need to be under anaesthetic.


We have a very modern ultrasound machine onsite which allows us to perform abdominal, chest and pregnancy ultrasound. Ultrasound scanning is a painless procedure which uses high frequency sound waves to produce images of structures within the body.


An endoscopy involves examining the inside of an animals body using an endoscope. An endoscope is a medical device consisting of a long, thin, flexible tube which has a light and video camera.


It is often necessary to medicate pets with drugs and medicines. If your pet has an ongoing condition and you need a repeat prescription, please phone ahead with 24 hours’ notice.

House Calls

In most cases it is best to bring your pet into the clinic where we have all the necessary staff, medication and equipment to treat your pet. However, we understand that in some cases this is not possible and we can arrange for a house visit for the comfort of you and your pet with a vet and nurse.


We have a hydrobath onsite, where you can wash your dog. A hydrobath is an easy way for your dog to be thoroughly washed with little effort by you, so when your dog takes a bath you don’t need to as well.
