Welcome to Australia’s premier surgery and cancer facility, Southpaws Specialty Surgery for Animals

We deliver the best in veterinary orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, neuro surgery, veterinary cancer care, chemo therapy and internal medicine for dogs and cats. We offer no-charge consultations with our specialist surgeons after referral from your veterinarian, so that we can assess your pet and recommend the best treatment. Our friendly veterinary and nursing staff and compassionate approach will put you and your pet at ease. We are located in Moorabbin, near Melbourne, Victoria.

At Southpaws, we pride ourselves on excellence, compassion, integrity and experience. We do everything in our power to achieve great outcomes for your beloved pets. All patients have onsite 24-hour monitoring when they are hospitalised. This means that your pet's condition is continually monitored for recovery and pain relief while keeping your pet loved and cared for. We don’t see many after-hours emergencies, so our nurses are 100% dedicated to overnight patient care.

Our dedicated cat ward allows separate consultations and accomodation away from dogs. Owners can wait in a separate room without the distractions of cat - dog interactions. The separation of dogs and cats provides a calmer, less stressful environment - aiding patient recovery.

Southpaws has some of Australia's most advanced veterinary imaging and diagnostic radiography capabilities. We have Australia’s first deep radiation therapy unit for animals, one of the most advanced 16 slice CT scanners available in Australia for animals, two hepa-filtered surgical suites and a dedicated surgical preparation area. Our imaging capabilities include ultrasound, Xray and Xray fluoroscopy and in cooperation with Royal Canin Australia - on-site 3D printing of surgical models to better guide our surgical approach. Combine this with highly compassionate and trained nurses with the highest nurse-to-patient ratio in the industry, on-site 24 hour care, and our relaxed and caring approach and Southpaws is second-to-none at delivering the best specialist veterinary care.

No charge, no obligation consultations with our surgery department by referral only.
