Werribee Veterinary Science Hospital Open Day

March 23, 2012 by Ozzi Cat Magazine in Cat Events
University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital Open Day

University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital Open Day

University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital (Werribee Campus) is well known in West suburbs of Victoria. Many people from Wyndham area (Werribee, Hoppers Crossing, and others) use, or used at least once, services of the Veterinary Hospital and brought their cats for treatment or emergency.

My beloved Manya The Cat and my other cats were treated there. There are many wonderful doctors, nurses and other personal in the Hospital.

Every year the University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital opens its doors to public. In 2012 the Open Day will be held on Sunday, 25 March, 10am – 3pm.

We visited it in 2011. It was an awesome experience. I’m very thankful for a possibility to look “behind the scene”: Have you ever seen how a surgery is done on pets? Can you imagine how a “3D scan” can be done to a horse? (3D scan is made by a machine that rotates around your body.) Have you ever seen an x-ray of a snake?

It was an amazing experience. Even though I almost fell unconscious after visiting a surgery room (it reminded me hard medical times we had during our cats relocation to Australia and everything that I experienced in hospitals trying to do everything to save Manya), I found the Open Day very interesting.

What To Expect On The Open Day

  • Public Lectures

    Want to know what the latest news and discoveries are in animal health? Hear from veterinarians working at the forefront of veterinary science.

  • Pet Demonstrations

    A full program of entertaining demonstrations will take place on the Main Lawn throughout the day. View the program for more information.

  • Self-Guided Tour

    Tour the world class Veterinary Hospital. Start at any point by following the paw prints.

    Our veterinarians and students are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge. Learn how problems are identified, how pets are treated, understand how the latest veterinary equipment is used and how a range of different procedures are performed.

  • Pathology Display

    Our passionate veterinary pathologists are always a hit on Open Day. Learn about animal disease from the malformed to the malignant. Displays include fresh specimens, museum pots and skeletons.

Useful Information

There is a free parking right near the Hospital. Last time we were there, we arrived late and the parking was full. You can just drive a bit further down the main road to find a spot.

    Great post..Veterinary medicine has progressed in leaps and bounds. Although this is a good thing for our pets, the new drugs and complex treatment techniques can be very expensive. Hence, an animal’s veterinary needs can be a financial burden too great for some to bear. As a result, some pet owners do not seek veterinary help even though their beloved animal needs veterinary treatment.

      It’s so true, Rebecca.

      What could cat owners do to ease this situation?

      I can think of keeping the cat healthy in the first place, know where to seek financial help and know what options are available. What would be your thoughts?

      I’m just interested, what do vet clinics usually do if a cat owner does not have enough resources to pay for the treatment? Do they offer any options? or what happens in this case
