For all Creatures

Meet Francesca the pigeon.

At around 6 weeks old, Francesca sustained a nasty injury to her leg and was left bleeding on the busy streets of Melbourne as hundreds of people passed her by.

It wasn’t until one kind stranger saw her and picked her up that she found her way to rescue group, Little Miracles Animal Rescue Inc who took her under their wing

Francesca’s carer reached out to lots of vet clinics who sadly turned this poor pigeon away. Through networking with Beary Fuzzy Forever Rescue, Francesca was referred to our clinic and Dr Kunal jumped in to help.

Francesca’s leg was badly injured, shattered in multiple places. Her only options were amputation or euthanasia.

So given Francesca had a loving home and someone to care for her ongoing, Dr Kunal and nurse Angella scrubbed into theatre!

Francesca was anesthetised, intubated and prepped for surgery.

Her leg was cleaned and wrapped to avoid contamination of the surgical site.

Surgery was a success!

Francesca woke up without any dramas and went to her new home to be loved forever.

Francesca recently visited Dr Kunal and the team to show off how much she had grown. She is doing great with one leg!

    I cannot recommend this vet clinic enough! I recently took my cat in for castration surgery and the whole experience was fantastic. The staff was incredibly caring and attentive, and they kept me updated with cute messages throughout each … More step of the process. I felt well-informed and confident that my cat was in good hands. I am so grateful for the excellent care they provided and will definitely be returning for any future pet needs. Thank you for everything!

    We have been using Lynbrook Vet since they opened their doors, they have grown significantly since then, but we still receive the same amazing service from the team. We are always confident that we will get the information & care needed … More for our fur kids without pushing unnecessary extras, could not be happier with the level of care from the team.Everyone from the vets, nurses & reception team have been amazing, I have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone looking for a vet that they can feel confident with.
