Why we love surgery – from a Double Bay Vet

We love our surgery here at Southern Cross Vet. As a premier Double Bay Vet, with our state of the art equipment, it’s easy to see why.

Here are just a few of the reasons why we love surgery here.

The team can perform a huge range of surgeries in our theatre. From laparoscopic desexing dogs and cats to life-changing spinal surgery, we have the capability to perform the surgeries that can be the difference between life and death.

We have two theatres at our clinic. One for sterile procedures (eg desexing) and one for non-sterile procedures (eg dental procedures). We like to keep anything with possible contamination out of our main theatre, so that your pet can remain as healthy as possible.

Our operating table is height adjusted and our two overhead theatre lights can be fixed into just about every angle you can think of so that our surgeons can perform all procedures without a hinderance.

All anaesthesia at Southern Cross Vet is carried out using our two modern anaesthetic monitoring machine. These are the same machines used for human anaesthesia and can be used to monitor a huge range of parameters which are necessary for us to make sure that your companion is as safe as can be during their procedure. The more we can measure, the safer any procedure is.

One of the most exciting developments at Southern Cross Vet is the addition of our laparoscopy tower. As a Double Bay vet, this state-of-the-art equipment allows us to perform a variety of procedures which are less invasive and less traumatic to our patients. One of our absolute favourite procedures is our one-port laparoscopic desexing. To find out more about our laparoscopic desexings, please contact the practice

Sometimes the surgeries can be very challenging, but we don’t let that bother us at the clinic. We are lucky enough to have access to some of the best surgeons in Australia and can arrange specialised surgeries in our theatre so you don’t have to be referred anywhere else. Your furry companions can stay in the environment that they are used to!

We don’t like bleeding during our surgeries, and with our modern surgical equipment, we aim to avoid just that. Our electrosurgery (also known as surgical diathermy) allows us to conduct procedures without a single drop of blood shed. Nothing like you see on the TV!

At Southern Cross Vet, it’s easy to see how much we love our surgery. If your companion has to have any procedure at our clinic, you can trust that they are in safe hands.
