Do I need an appointment?


Each pet is important and we like to ensure that each one is properly examined and treated.  We therefore prefer consultations to be by appointment.  Appointment times can usually be made at short notice and at a time to suit you.

What is the best way to bring my pet into the clinic?


To comply with OSH regulations and to ensure the safety and comfort of other pets and their owners please ensure you pet is properly restrained.  Dogs need to be on a lead and cats in a cage, box, or similar.  These are available in the clinic if you do not own one.

Do you make housecalls?


The clinic is the best place to have your pet examined because we have all the equipment, medicines and experienced nurses on hand. Occasionally the need may arise for a house visit – for example, pets who would like to end their days at home. If you live nearby, we can often oblige. There is an extra charge for this service and we do need some flexibility with the time. Please contact the clinic on 544 2604 for further details.

How Do I Pay?


Payment is required at the end of each visit.  Please feel free to ask for an estimate of cost prior to work being undertaken.  You can pay by cash, cheque, EFTPOS, and most major credit cards.


If payment is an issue then we are partnered with VetCare Finance who are able to offer financial assistance when you need it to cover your unexpected vet bills.  They will help work out an affordable payment plan.  For more information visit their website.
