Australia’s leading veterinary hospital, the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), is opening a new state of the art facility in Western Sydney in September.

The hospital, which will be located at Prospect, will bolster the veterinary services available to pet owners in the area, who will be able to access specialist and emergency veterinary treatment closer to home.

SASH’s newest facility will provide a range of veterinary services including emergency and critical care, internal medicine, surgery, oncology, dermatology, diagnostic imaging, sports medicine and rehabilitation.

The hospital, which has been featured on TV programs such as Bondi Vet and the Today show, boasts an incredible team of specialist vets across its different sites.

SASH Oncology Specialist and incoming SASH WS General Manager, Dr Sandra Nguyen, said it was exciting to be able to offer pet parents in the area new therapies to support their furry family members.

The new site in Western Sydney

With three other well established facilities in North Ryde, the Central Coast and Adelaide, the Prospect site will add the SASH quality service and care to Western Sydney. This year to date, SASH has treated more than 32,000 cases across its various sites.

The state of art facility features quality equipment, on par with that of a human hospital.

“With the new specialist areas such as oncology and dermatology and other therapies such our sports medicine rehab centre, pet owners have access to a range of treatments at SASH that they may not even be aware of,” says Dr Nguyen.

“It’s all coming together; the MRI kit is going in later this month and our specialists are really excited to start using the new equipment.”

The opening offers local veterinarians the opportunity to refer specialised cases to the new facility whose emergency and critical care unit is open 24 hours a day.

The new facility will be open for emergencies from 22 August and with the remainder of the services opening 29 August.
