Our dedicated team is always here for your pets
Corio Veterinary Clinic was established in 1978. We are a modern well-equipped hospital, with a caring and experienced team of veterinarians and nurses who are committed to providing the best care for your pets. We are able to offer a wide range of services including consultations, desexing & microchipping, elective and emergency surgery and home visits. Our surgical and medical equipment is kept well up to date to enhance quick and effective treatment of your pets. With good advice and professional care, we strive to give your pet the best ongoing health care.
Our Lara Veterinary Clinic was opened in 1983 to cater for the ever expanding population of Lara and the surrounding districts. The Lara clinic provides a full range of services to our clients and their animals, with extended hours in the evenings for those owners working in Melbourne and travelling home to Lara. We aim to make your pet feel at ease in our Clinic with a caring and gentle approach to our treatments and consultations.
With our modern computer system, all details of your animals histories are available at the touch of a button to both clinics, which are linked "on-line."
Take a moment to meet our team and their own pets. We look forward to seeing you and your pet again at your next scheduled visit.

Desexing has many advantages, from a health, welfare and behavioural aspect. These include -
Health benefits: reduced risks of mammary and ovarian tumours in females, and prostate problems in males, removes risks involved in pregnancy (eclampsia, complications during birth etc), and prevents females from developing pyometra (an infection in the uterus that can be fatal if left untreated). It also stops periodic cycling, so there is less cleaning required!
Welfare benefits: less unwanted animals, which reduces the burden on welfare and rescue groups, and also results in less animals ultimately being euthanased.
Behavioural: dogs are much less likely to wander, as females will no longer go on heat, and both sexes are less likely to wander, to go in search of a mate.
Desexing also reduces the costs involved in registering your dog with the local council.
We would certainly recommend desexing your dog if you do not intend to breed, and would recommend it whilst they are still young, strong, and at a lower-risk than a mature animal would be. There is no benefit of in allowinfg your dog to have one litter before they are desexed. We can desex your dog from the age of 14 weeks, providing they are over 1kg in body weight.
