Nurse Consultations - Vets in Cranbourne

Vets in Cranbourne understand the importance of regular health check-ups and preventive care for your pets. We also recognise that there may be times when you need assistance that may not require a vet. Our nursing consultations provide an excellent opportunity to address concerns or questions about your pet’s health or behaviour.

Our qualified vet nurses can handle a wide range of tasks and work closely with our vets to provide comprehensive care for your pet.

Vets in Cranbourne provides an extensive array of nursing consultation services, such as:

  • Nail clipping for cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds
  • Anal gland expression
  • Parasite control
  • Monthly arthritis care injections
  • Nutritional advice
  • Monthly allergy treatment injections
  • Weight loss advice
  • Post-surgical follow-up appointments

To arrange a nursing consultation for your pet, dial (03) 7018 6208 or schedule your appointment online. At Vets in Cranbourne, we are dedicated to providing your pet with the highest-quality care and expertise in veterinary services.


Veterinary nurses do not prescribe medications. However, they can administer prescribed medicines, offer advice on medicating at home, and aid with aftercare. A vet must examine your pet for any new prescriptions or modifications in treatment.

Insurance coverage for nursing consultations depends on your pet’s insurance plan. We advise you to consult your insurance provider to understand which services are covered.

Our team can supply invoices and paperwork to help with your insurance claims. For pets insured through GapOnly partners, we can handle your claim during your visit, so you only have to pay the gap amount.

If, during the nursing consultation, it becomes clear that your pet requires a vet’s attention, we can typically schedule an appointment for the same day or as soon as possible. Our nurses and vets work together closely to ensure your pet receives the right care as quickly as possible.

  • Whilst most owners understand the impact of their pet's oral health on their general health and quality of life, many may still need clarification on the practical ways to achieve excellent pet dental hygiene.
