SouthPaws Specialist and Emergency Centre, Morrabin, Australia

About us:

The Southpaws purpose-built hospitals in Moorabbin and Mornington offer great lifestyle options. Southpaws practices have a world-renowned reputation for excellence, innovation and patient care. The expertise, collaborative approach and innovation brought to our hospital through our surgical and clinical teams is right for patients, clients, and our wider clinical teams across our hospital.  We regularly publish and present our latest work at national and international conferences and at events scheduled for the veterinary community.

Southpaws boasts one of only three veterinary radiation therapy units in Australia and were the first deep-therapy radiation unit for dogs and cats in Australia. We have full in-house laboratory facilities, comprehensive diagnostic imaging including ultrasound, digital X-ray, digital fluoroscopy and a new Canon 16 Slice CT scanner. We also have extensive minimally-invasive surgical equipment including a full range of arthroscopes as well as a needle-arthroscopy system.
