Parking

There are usually short term parks available on the street outside.  There is also parking in Martin Court.

New client registration

To get you and your pet registered, we need a bit of information.  We would appreciate it if you could come 5 minutes before your appointment to complete our new client form.  You can download the form at this link or we can give you one when you get here.  

Safety

To keep you and your pets safe we do require all dogs to be on a lead and all cats to be in secure cat carriers.  We do ask that you are conscious of other pets in the clinic.  (For example your dog may love saying hello to the cat, however the feeling might not be reciprocal!)

Previous history

Please remember to tell our team about any treatment or previous health issues your pet might have had.  A good idea is to ask your previous vet to email us a copy of your pet’s history to [email protected]   (It’s also a great way to ensure we can program important healthcare reminders for your pet).

How are we different?

Our vision is ‘to create and nuture relationships to deliver dedicated veterinary care to pets and their families’.   We love developing ongoing partnerships with you as your pet’s owner, to give them the best life possible.

We will always aim to make your pet’s visit as stress free as possible.  This may include giving plenty of treats, examining your pet on the floor where they are more comfortable, low stress handling, allowing your pet time to relax.  If your pet is particularly anxious, talk to us about medication to relax your pet before any subsequent visits.

Never visited a vet?
Here is what to expect:

When you arrive you will be greeted by one of our friendly team.  We generally weigh all dogs in the reception, (cats and small pets weighed in consultation rooms).  We will always ask, but please do let us know if you would prefer no treats to be given to your dog.    The vet will then take you and your pet through to one of our spacious consultation rooms for your pet’s exam where they will ask you about your pet’s history and conduct a full physical exam.  After the consult, payment is made at reception and any medication required dispensed and explained.   Payment is required at the time for all treatments or products.

Common Emergency Health Concerns

Chocolate / Poison Ingestion
Breathing Difficulty
Bleeding
Loss of Consciousness
Dehydration
Heat Stroke
Snake / Spider Bite
Snake Bites can be a much more serious problem.  You should identify the snake if at all possible (remember that it’s illegal to kill them though).  If you know your pet’s been bitten by a venomous snake such as a brown snake, red-bellied black snake or tiger snake, then you need immediate veterinary help.  If you’ve seen the snake but aren’t sure if your pet’s been bitten, then look for signs such as collapse, difficulty breathing, weakness, tremors and convulsions, vomiting, loss of balance and dilated pupils.  Your pet should be rested and if you know that it’s been bitten on the leg, then you should apply a pressure bandage.
