Galston Veterinary Clinic provides a caring, professional service for all your pets both small and large. The practice is owned by Andrew Miller and Sandy Read who have over 30 years experience in looking after the pets of the Hills District.
We provide a very personal and friendly service and look forward to providing your pets with the best possible care available.
Our dedicated team of vets and nurses are always willing to assist
with all your animal enquires.
We do more than simply treat your pet; we offer professional consultations to improve your animal's diet, health, and behavior.
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.
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 orthopeadic surgeries (fractures, ligament repairs, amputation). Any complicated surgeries (eg. spinal surgery) will need to be referred to a specialist.
Whether you've scheduled an appointment or have an emergency, our vets are available to help with all of your veterinary needs. We can travel to your property to treat your animals or we can see them at the clinic. Some large animals we treat include horses, alpacas, cows, sheep and goats.
Sometimes emergencies happen. We know your pets and animals are important to you, so we offer 24 hour emergency services, on-site or at the clinic.
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.
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 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
