Melbourne Rabbit Clinic is Australia’s first and only rabbits and guinea pig only hospital. Without the smells and noise of predator species (dogs and cats) around, we find that rabbits and guinea pigs are able to more comfortable and calm, allowing them to heal and recover more quickly. Melbourne Rabbit Clinic aims to take principles of Fear Free veterinary care developed for general practice overseas and adapt them for our patients in order to ensure their visit is as stress-free as possible.
At Melbourne Rabbit Clinic we endeavour to provide warm and friendly service with high quality veterinary care tailored to our furry herbivore friends. Our hospital houses equipment designed for these little mammals, enabling us to perform extensive diagnostic investigation and make informed decisions with treatment and surgery. Every rabbit and guinea pig in hospital is supplied with a litter tray of fresh hay, a bowl or dripper of fresh water, fresh veggies (if a lunch box of veggies is not supplied), and places to hide if they feel more comfortable this way (guinea pigs).
