Long-term comfort

Penrith Vets has worked hard to minimise the worry, risks and discomfort associated with surgery. We also provide a large range of procedures to maximise your pet’s long-term comfort.

From ensuring minor procedures don’t incur soreness to performing major procedures providing long-term relief from painful conditions, Penrith Vets can provide a large range of both simple and complex procedures for your pet’s welfare.

Anaesthesia

While the details don’t provide interesting reading, with our use and provision of anaesthetic monitoring equipment and constant nurse attendance, we have tried to take the risk out of anaesthesia. Pulse oximetry (measuring oxygen levels), respiration monitors, blood pressure monitoring, capnography (carbon dioxide measurement), blood gas measurement, and, most importantly, experienced nursing and veterinary staff to manage your pet’s anaesthesia all come together to provide anaesthesia that is safe and comfortable for your pet.

New procedures

TTA (tibial tuberosity advancement) is now being performed at Penrith Veterinary Hospital. Special implants are used in the bone below the knee to change the effective angle of the joint. Even though it is a much more complex procedure than ligament replacement, most dogs are walking well within 5 - 7 days of the procedure, so recovery is faster.

Pain relief

Any procedure can lead to discomfort if not managed well. All pets undergoing surgery at Penrith Vets have pain relief administered before, during and after their procedure to minimise any discomfort that your pet experiences.

Surgery

We provide a large range of procedures from simple to advanced to manage hundreds of different conditions. We ensure the best possible results for your pet, meaning healing and recovery can occur as quickly as possible.
