Healthcare Services

 
CONSULTING
 
During a consultation, our veterinarian will conduct a physical examination of your pet and after discussion, will perform any further investigations necessary to confirm a diagnosis.

Our veterinarians regularly attend conferences in order to stay up-to-date with modern treatment methods and will be happy to address any of your concerns, as well as offer advice on preventative medicine and parasite control.
 
 
 
 
 
 
SPECIALIST REFERRALS
 
Our experienced veterinarians recognise when an animal requires specialist help. We have relationships with specialist centres and veterinary laboratories in Brisbane and Townsville, and will provide you with a referral in the event that your pet requires further treatment.
 
 
 
 
 
 
DENTALS
 
Just like humans, your pet's teeth also need looking after. At Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery we provide dental checks for signs of dental or gum disease. When necessary, we can descale and polish your pet's teeth to remove plaque, and can perform tooth extractions. With regular cleaning the need for extractions can be prevented. We have specialised toothpaste, brushes and oral antiseptics you may use at home after we have performed the procedure.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
MICROCHIPPING
 
A microchip is a small, uniquely coded electronic identification device. At Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery we use the latest mini microchips which are about the size of a grain of rice and can be inserted under your pet's skin in a quick, easy and safe procedure during a normal consultation.

In the event that your pet becomes lost and is brought to a veterinary clinic or animal shelter, the microchip will allow you to be reunited.

A national registry keeps a record of your details and your pet's. It is important you keep the company updated if you should move address or change phone numbers, so they may locate you if necessary.
 
 
 
 
 

Diagnostic Services

 
DIAGNOSTICS
 
Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery is equipped with numerous blood analysers to perform Haematology, Biochemistry and Coagulation profiles, a Urinalysis machine to examine urine, and a Microscope to perform cytology on skin and fluid samples. We also have a modern digital DR X-ray machine, which produces high quality detailed radiographic images, and a video Endoscope/Gastroscope. In-house diagnostic equipment enables us to provide a prompt diagnosis of your pets illness.
 
 
 
 
 
 
OPHTHALMOLOGY
 
Veterinary ophthalmology deals with the diagnosis and treatment of a wide range of ocular diseases in animals, some of which can lead to blindness. Our veterinarians provide ophthalmic examinations, diagnostic testing, eyelid repair and reconstruction as well as surgical removal of ingrown eyelashes, which can cause discomfort including eye ulcerations.
 
 
 
 
 
 

Surgical services

 
SURGERY
 
Our well-equipped small animal surgery allows our vets to perform a wide range of general surgical procedures, which include desexing (routine and non-routine), dental surgery, wound stitch-ups and soft tissue surgeries (removal of lumps and growths).

We offer surgery for oncological (cancer) and orthopaedic (musculoskeletal) conditions as well as trauma injuries including those caused by motor vehicle accidents or dog fights. All surgical procedures are undertaken at our practice with the utmost care.
 
 
 
 
 
 
ANAESTHETICS
 
General anaesthesia is administered using either intravenous injections or oxygen and Isoflurane. Your pet is intubated to allow the gaseous drug and oxygen to be delivered, so that surgery can be performed. Our veterinarians and nursing staff are experienced in anaesthetic techniques and ensure your pet's heart, respiration, oxygen levels, blood pressure and body temperature are monitored both by electronic monitors and manually.
 
 
 
 
 
 
ORTHOPAEDICS
 
Our veterinarians at Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery are experienced in both diagnosis and treatment of orthopaedic conditions. We have installed a modern cruciate ligament repair system.
 
 
 
 
 
 
HOSPITALISATION
 
Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery has approval to hospitalise patients overnight, so there is no compromise in your pet's recovery. We have two banks of stainless steel cages which are easily cleaned. Our staff will ensure your pet has bedding for comfort and will monitor your pet until discharge.
