To all our valued clients,

The health and wellbeing of our clients, their pets, our staff and the community is always our top priority, so we would like to provide you with an update on how to safely access our animal health services during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak and what you can do to help us minimise the risk of transmission. 

More information...
  • We politely ask that anyone who has travelled overseas within the last 14 days, or who is feeling unwell with cold or flu-like symptoms, please refrain from coming into the clinic and call us to discuss their pet’s health issue.
  • We ask that anyone who has been in direct contact with a confirmed COVID-19 case also call ahead to discuss their pet’s visit. We will either arrange an alternate appointment date or ask that another person brings your pet to see us. In some cases, we can organise a consultation via phone.
  • If you are not comfortable coming into the clinic, please call and speak with one of our nursing team who will be able to work out the best way for us to see to your pet.
  • If required, please ensure that you are stocked with at least two weeks worth of medication. Call us if you need more, so we can arrange this for you.
  • To minimise the risk of transmission, if possible, please limit the number of people coming in with a pet (or pets) to one person per visit.
  • We recommend that routine visits e.g annual health checks and vaccinations for healthy adult pets should be delayed for a few months.
  • We would appreciate, if possible that financial transactions were cashless.
  • We are trying to eliminate congestion in the waiting room.Please assist the nurses and heed their requests.

We have also had some queries about pets and COVID-19 we would like to address:

  • There is currently no evidence to suggest that dogs and cats can spread COVID-19 or that they can become sick from it.
  • The primary source of transmission of COVID-19 remains human-to-human contact, which is why handwashing is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family from getting sick.
  • Cats and dogs do have their own form of coronavirus, but it cannot be transmitted to humans.
  • You should, however, always wash your hands before and after handling your pets or their food, which can help other pet-related illness from spreading.

    Thank you for your support during this uncertain time. Stay safe and look after each other.

    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.
