The Animal Welfare League NSW (AWL NSW) Mobile Vet Clinic is an Australian-first, fully-fitted out B-Double trailer which has been purposefully designed to enable AWL NSW to travel to regional areas in NSW to provide desexing, vaccination and microchipping programs to communities doing it tough, and help reduce the burden of unwanted litters and stop the source of pets that may find themselves at council impound facilities.

The Mobile Vet Clinic features specially-designed areas to conduct minor animal surgeries (such as desexing) as well as an isolation room and over 35 recovery cages. The Mobile Vet Clinic also features equipment to perform blood works, fridges, a veterinary scale, and extensive storage to hold veterinary supplies and more.

The AWL NSW veterinary team from our Kemps Creek clinic will travel to destinations in collaboration with AWL NSW volunteer branches across the state to ensure we are helping those that need us most.

AWL NSW would not be able to run these important community programs without the ongoing support of kind and generous donors. If you can, please consider supporting this cause, any donation no matter how small is appreciated. Donations can be made online, by calling AWL NSW on 02 8777 4461 or via PayPal.

The Animal Welfare League NSW veterinary hospital has a desexing service. They also run a discount desexing program for low income earners via Volunteer Branches around the state.

Desexing is recommended for all animals. Desexing is recommended from 4 months of age for kittens and 5 months of age for puppies.

Desexing your pet has several advantages:

Female pets

  • Prevention of unwanted pregnancies
  • Prevention of unwanted oestrus signs e.g. vaginal discharge
  • Decreased risk of mammary cancer
  • Prevention of ovarian cancer
  • Prevention of pyometra

Male pets

  • Reduced aggression and roaming
  • Reduced prostate problems
  • Prevention of testicular problems
  • Prevention of undesired behaviours e.g. marking

Desexing is a routine day procedure. If your pet is coming for a desexing procedure please read the following information.

Fasting

Please withhold food from 10pm onwards the night before. Water is allowed at all times.

Admission

Admission is between 8.30am and 9.30am on the day of the surgery. Please book an admission time with our staff. At admission our staff will ensure your pet is healthy to undergo surgery. There is a short questionnaire and consent form to be completed.

Discount Desexing

Each Volunteer Branch runs their own desexing program individually so you will need to contact your closest Volunteer Branch directly to find out if you are eligible. They will be able to provide you information on what the costs are and any other relevant information.

The discount desexing program is intended to help reduce the amount of animals being bred who end up in pounds and shelters.

To find out more about our discount desexing program, please contact your closest Volunteer Branch.

We offer routine surgeries such as desexing, as well as a range of soft tissue and orthopaedic procedures.

We highly recommend desexing your pet and would be happy to discuss the benefits of this with you.

Our veterinary surgeons become very proficient at performing both spey and castration surgeries, along with many other routine procedures due to the large numbers of these we carry out at the clinic annually.

We have a visiting surgery specialist attend the veterinary clinic as required to carry out or advise on less routine and complicated surgical procedures.

We have two surgical theatres within the clinic, which allows us to undertake multiple procedures at one time. All patients undergoing a procedure are monitored throughout by a qualified veterinary nurse.

We carry out our surgical procedures for our private patients on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Intravenous fluids therapy

The agents used for general anaesthesia can cause a temporary reduction in heart function which can lead to reduced blood pressure. Maintaining normal blood pressure is essential for ensuring adequate blood supply to the body’s organs. Intravenous fluid therapy maintains your pet’s blood pressure during surgery and also ensures our veterinarians have easy and rapid access to administer other agents if required.

Pre-anaesthetic blood profile

Every anaesthetic carries some risk. Old age and underlying disease can increase this risk. Being aware of any abnormalities will help our vets make your pet’s anaesthetic as safe as possible.

Anaesthesia

All animals undergoing a desexing procedure are placed under a general anaesthetic.

General anaesthesia occurs in 3 stages:

  1. Premedication – An injection under the skin of a sedative and pain relief
  2. Induction – An intravenous injection of a general anaesthetic agent
  3. Maintenance – A tube is placed into the trachea (or windpipe) which delivers oxygen and a gaseous anaesthesia agent to maintain general anaesthesia

Your pet’s vital signs including heart rate and respiratory are monitored carefully throughout this process.

Discharge

Your pet will be discharged between 4pm and 6:30pm. At discharge our staff will discuss your pet’s post-operative care.

Post-operative care

All patients are sent home with three days of pain relief. Our staff will instruct you on the administration of this medication at discharge. It is important to keep your pet quiet for the next few days following surgery. Monitor the surgical wound daily for signs of heat, swelling and discharge. If your pet is licking or chewing at the surgical site please let our staff know. Stitches are removed 10-14 days following surgery.

Imaging can be a helpful way for our veterinarians to gain more information about your pet’s health.

Our Hospital has a purpose built x-ray suite, with digital radiography equipment installed. This allows our veterinarians to take high-quality radiographs more efficiently.

In most instances, patients are placed under general anaesthesia to obtain the best quality image. This allows our veterinarians to carefully position your pet and keeps them still while the radiograph is taken.

We also have a state-of-the-art ultrasound machine.

Our Veterinary Hospital has an in-house pathology laboratory which includes a good-quality microscope and IDEXX biochemistry and electrolytes machines.

If more comprehensive blood tests are required we have access to the IDEXX Veterinary Pathology Services.

If your pet is coming in for surgery we offer a pre-anaesthetic blood profile performed at the clinic to screen for abnormalities in major organ function.

Every anaesthetic carries some risk. Old age and underlying disease can increase this risk. Being aware of any abnormalities will help our vets make your pet’s anaesthetic as safe as possible.

At the Animal Welfare League NSW Veterinary Clinic we advise you on the best vaccination regime for your pet at every stage of life.

Our veterinarians keep up to date with all the latest in recommended vaccination regimes to ensure that your pet is protected against viral infections, which can prove deadly.

Remembering that prevention is always better than cure, our staff will be happy to advise you on how to ensure that your pet has been protected against the deadly viruses they may be exposed to in Australia.

Microchipping is an important way of identifying your pet.

All of our Animal Welfare League vets are accredited to implant microchips in dogs, cats and rabbits.

Microchips are inserted under the skin in between the shoulder blades.

If your contact details should change, please contact your local council to have your details updated on the microchip registry.

Prevention treatments are very important when it comes to parasites. We have a huge range of products available for your beloved pet.

Deciding on the most effective treatment and prevention for intestinal worms, fleas, mites and deadly paralysis ticks can be difficult.

Our staff will be happy to help you decide on a parasite prevention regime for throughout the year which suits both you and your pet’s needs.

The discomfort and negative impact to general health caused by dental disease in animals has been very much underestimated in the past.

Our team at Animal Welfare League can advise you on the best ways to aid in the prevention of dental disease, but also when a dental procedure is recommended for your pet.

Our veterinary surgeons carry out numerous dental procedures each week within the clinic, from simple scaling and polishing to major dental work with multiple teeth requiring extraction. We have equipment for carrying out dental xrays which enables us to provide a high standard of dental work.

Within the Animal Welfare League NSW Veterinary Clinic we have the ability to perform biochemistry blood screening in as little as 15 minutes.

Preanaesthetic blood tests are highly recommended for your pet before they undergo a procedure requiring sedation or general anaesthesia, and being able to carry these out within the clinic saves both time and money.

A preanaesthetic blood screen can help to indicate whether your pet’s intestinal organs are functioning effectively enough to cope with a sedation or general anaesthetic. Abnormalities in the results of these tests can cause our veterinarians to alter their choice of drugs prescribed for use, or the procedural plan, in order to minimise risk to your pet.

When a pet is unwell, blood screening will likely be recommended by our veterinarians. We will often run biochemistry blood tests within the clinic, but also routinely use an external laboratory service to carry out more extensive testing.

Blood testing will often be recommended by a veterinarian prior to their prescribing certain medications. This is because blood tests are able to determine whether a pet is becoming unwell before that pet may be showing any signs of illness, and some medications are not recommended to be used in patients with certain abnormalities.

Within the Animal Welfare League NSW Veterinary Clinic, we are equipped with microscopy, and our veterinarians routinely carry out cytology tests during consultation.

Veterinary specialists are available in a range of disciplines including:

  • Medicine
  • Surgery
  • Dermatology
  • Ophthalmology
  • Behaviour
  • Exotics (birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents)
  • Discount desexing
  • And more!

Although we are unable to offer a routine grooming service as such, we are however happy to provide a remedial clipping service for pets who require a fresh start to all or part of their coat due to matting, and particularly for those pets which require either a light or heavy sedation for this to be carried out.

This service may be arranged by speaking with one of our staff members, and will be scheduled at the first available appointment on either a Monday, Wednesday or Friday.

Your pet would be admitted and stay in hospital for the day, when they were to undergo a clip, and the clip would be carried out by a qualified veterinary nurse.
