Central Sterile Supplies - Werribee Vet Hospital

The theatre support section plays an integral part in the successful outcome of surgical procedures performed on animals within the hospital. The only large, dedicated CSS section in veterinary practice within Victoria, we ensure that all surgical instrumentation and medical equipment used on your pets during surgical and medical procedures have been thoroughly decontaminated, disinfected and/or sterilised to render them bacteria free. Importantly, we have the capacity to re-sterilise equipment continually throughout the day, allowing for multiple surgical procedures. Every surgical procedure is also attended by one of our specialist nursing staff.

The team is fully versed in the assembly and use of specialised equipment (such as total hip replacement systems, internal plating systems, interlocking nails sets, spinal decompression units, cardiovascular instruments and endoscopic equipment), and we boast a number of instrumentation not available in most other veterinary practices.

The team closely follow the Australian Standards used in human hospitals (4187), to provide the same level of care for your pets in our own hospital.
