Surgery

Here at Wilston Vet we are able to provide your pet with both routine as well as advanced surgical care. If we have a complex surgical case, we enlist the skills of itinerant surgeon Dr Lynn Minhinnet. Extremely complex cases such as spinal surgery are referred to Queensland Specialist Surgeons at Stafford.
