If your pet gets too stressed out by the car trip to the vet never fear - we’ll come to you!
House visits can be arranged anywhere in our call out area which extends from Bayswater to Gembrook, incorporating Monbulk, Macclesfield, Boronia, The Basin, Tecoma, Upwey, Ferny Ck, Sassafras, Montrose, Kalorama, Olinda, Mt Dandenong, Kallista, Belgrave, Silvan, Tremont, Cockatoo, Yellingbo, etc.
The charge increases the further away from Olinda/Mt Dandenong you live. Some cases may still need to be brought back to the surgery (eg. If x-rays are required or surgery is needed). For more complicated consultations often it is recommended to visit our surgery rather than a house call because we have the full range of medical & surgical facilities at hand if needed. Times can be arranged to suit but we prefer to do house visits in the late morning or early afternoon during weekdays.
Home euthanasia can be a less stressful experience for you and your pet. Most of the time we will sedate your pet first so they calmly go to sleep in their bed/basket before euthanasia with an overdose of barbiturate injection.
Pet cremation services are available via Rowville Pet Crematorium or Edenhills Pet Crematorium if required. Individual cremations cost from $280 upwards depending on the size of your dog, cat or other small pet. This can be arranged completely from our surgery. Ashes can be returned sealed in a wooden casket or left open to be scattered in the garden or wherever is a suitable place for your loyal companion. Edenhills offers a vast range of options from basic ashes cylinders to engraving, photo boxes, memorial plaques for the garden & more.
Dandenong Ranges Veterinary Centre does not service horses or farm animals. Please call us for some recommendations of large animal vets depending on the service required & the area where you live.
