Dental Month is coming up!

We are offering 10% off all dental procedures in the month of August.

Be sure to call us on 9653 1622 to secure a spot for your pet.





We do more than simply treat your pet; we offer professional consultations to improve your animal's diet, health, and behaviour.



Our veterinarians’ high level of expertise and our practice’s fully equipped surgical suite allows us to perform the vast majority of surgical procedures that your pet may require. It includes procedures such as desexing, exploratory laporotomies, caesareans, lump removals, biopsies, wound stitch-ups, removal of intestinal foreign bodies and orthopaedic surgeries (fractures, ligament repairs, amputation). Many complicated surgeries are still done in the clinic, where we call on a surgical specialist.



Sometimes emergencies happen. We know your pets and animals are important to you, so we will always do our best to accommodate for these situations.



Our clinic uses a digital radiography system, which reduces radiation exposure to pets and veterinarians without sacrificing clear, high-quality diagnostic images. We are able to obtain high-definition X-rays in under 10 seconds. X-rays are an important tool for properly assessing a variety of conditions like lameness, coughing, heart disease or foreign body ingestion. 



If your pet is not microchipped please give us a call to make an appointment to have one inserted.  If you find a lost pet please call us to arrange a scan, we can reunite microchipped pets with their worried owners.



It is essential that all pets are adequately vaccinated to help protect the pet population as a whole. Responsible pet care requires puppies & kittens to be given their initial course of vaccinations, but this cannot protect them for the rest of their lives. Adult dogs & cats require regular vaccination to maintain immunity against disease.



We have a limited large animal service and can visit properties where the animals are kept or see them at the clinic. We see goats, sheep, alpacas and cattle.



Just like humans, our pets are vulnerable to gum disease and problems with their teeth. Dental disease results in many pets unnecessarily suffering tooth loss, gum infection and pain. We are fully equipped with dental x ray and the most up to date dental equipment to carry out any dental procedures your pet may require, and our staff will be able to provide you with some information, tips and products on how to help prevent dental disease
