Drawing on over two decades worth of surgical experience, our team of skilled veterinarians and nurses will help your furry friend feel better in no time!
From a fracture or broken bone to dysplasia, orthopaedic surgery is the solution to a number of problems your pet may be facing. Many practices no longer provide these types of procedures, and instead refer these cases to a specialist centre – but here at Brisbane Pet Surgery, we can help your pet get back on their feet.MLP ACL Pelvic Fractures Limb Fractures
If your furry friend is having trouble seeing properly, then it may be time to consider eye surgery. Certain breeds are more prone to conditions such as meibomian gland tumours and prolapsed third eyelids, and our expert vets are here to help them see clearly again.Corneal Ulcers Prolapsed Third Eyelid Entropion Meibomian Tumours

All of our patients receive pain relief and antibiotics (opiates and nsaids). We can also recommend and perform pre-anaesthetic blood testing, which can check the underlying medical health conditions of your pet prior to surgery. IV (intravenous) or SC (subcutaneous) fluids are provided for most surgeries to aid in cardiac and renal (kidney) function during the procedure.
We induce anaesthesia in pocket pets, cats and some small dogs using Isoflurane in Oxygen by mask. This allows for a rapid induction and ensures your pet is breathing 100% oxygen from the beginning of the induction process. We have found that the use of this technique prevents apnoea episodes (where your pet stops breathing) during induction and allows for a safer procedure overall – especially in older cats and pocket pets. We maintain the anaesthesia using isoflurane in Oxygen, which is the same process used in human hospitals.
We place your pet on heating pads during the procedure and during the recovery period whilst the anaesthesia is finishing, before placing them back in their cage once they have recovered.
