Limb Fracture Treatment for Pets in Melbourne

Our clinic in Melbourne is renowned for its expertise in treating limb fractures in pets. We understand how distressing a fracture can be for both the pet and the owner, and we are committed to providing the best possible care and treatment.

Diagnosing Limb Fractures

The first step in treating a limb fracture is an accurate diagnosis:

  • Detailed Physical Examination: Our veterinarians conduct a thorough examination to identify the location and severity of the fracture.
  • Advanced Imaging: We utilize X-rays to gain a detailed view of the fracture. In complex cases, a CT scan may be employed for a more comprehensive assessment.

Surgical Treatment Options

Our approach to treating limb fractures depends on the type and severity of the fracture:

  • External Fixation: Using pins and rods outside the body to stabilize the fracture.
  • Internal Fixation: Involving surgical plates, screws, or pins to secure the broken bones internally.
  • Cast or Splint: For less severe fractures, immobilization with a cast or splint may be sufficient.


The cost of treating limb fractures varies depending on the type of fracture and the chosen treatment method. We provide a detailed estimate following the initial consultation and diagnosis.

Payment Options

We offer several payment options to accommodate the financial needs of our clients:

  • GapOnly: To cover the gap not paid by pet insurance.
  • VetPay: A financing solution to help manage the cost of veterinary care.
  • Zip Money: Flexible payment plans for spreading the cost over time, easing immediate financial pressure.


Effective aftercare is crucial for a full recovery:

  • Pain Management: Ensuring your pet’s comfort is our priority.
  • Rehabilitation Plans: Tailored exercises and rehabilitation plans to aid recovery.
  • Regular Monitoring: Follow-up appointments to assess healing and adjust treatment as necessary.
