Gippsland Veterinary Hospital’s clinics at Maffra and Sale have been servicing the greyhound industry for over 40 years. We provide a track veterinarian to each race meeting for the Sale Greyhound Race Club and the Traralgon Race Club.
In addition to providing services to the two clubs we also offer a 24 hour Veterinary Service to Greyhound trainers and their dogs.
With a special interest in sports medicine and surgery we are able to provide quality hospitalisation and care to medical cases.
Orthopaedic procedures performed include fracture repair, joint surgery (including arthroscopy), and ligament repair of simple to complicated cases. We are also able to provide stem cell therapy to dogs that may have long term joint conditions to improve their racing ability.
Our team of vets provide reproduction services from semen collection and storage to artificial insemination, caesarian sections, same day progesterone assays and pregnancy ultrasounds. We also offer quality caesarians carried out by skilled veterinarians and a highly dedicated team of nurses 24 hours each day.
Comprehensive in-house rapid blood test results. Testing offered includes complete biochemistry, haematology (including white blood cell and red blood cell counts), total thyroid levels, muscle enzyme levels and clotting times.
Ultrasound & Digital Radiology
We have onsite digital radiology which enables us to take radiographs rapidly and have results quickly. As well as ultrasound to assist with thorough injury assessment.
