Pharmacy

It is often necessary to medicate pets with drugs and specific medicines.

Similar to human medications, some drugs have legal restrictions on their use and can only be dispensed under certain conditions.

Animal Health Centre keeps our pharmacy fully stocked, not only for your convenience but also for emergencies where special medicines such as poison antidotes are required.

By law vets are only allowed to dispense prescription medicines after examining the patient, so please don't be offended if you request medication but are told you will need a consultation first. For repeat prescriptions it is also a legal requirement to re-examine the patient from time to time. This time frame varies with specifics of the patient and condition being treated.

If your pet has an ongoing condition and requires a regular medication we recommend that you ring us first so that we can ensure that the prescription is approved and ready to go when you arrive. If the vet needs to see your pet before a repeat script can be provided then you will be advised of this when you ring.

Personal.

Personal service is really important to us and this is an area where we shine due to our relatively small size and our friendly team.

Independent.

We’re not part of a big corporate franchise – we are owner-operated and have a vested interest in doing a good job and keeping you happy.

Focused.

We are Vets. We enjoy being Vets and this is our focus. We’re not a petshop with a vet in it. We don’t upsell treats, beds or grooming when you visit.

Experienced.

Each of our vets has over 20 years of professional expertise. Our nursing staff all hold National Certificates and Diplomas.

Comprehensive.

Our Animal Hospital and Vet Clinic is fully equipped and staffed to provide a complete medical and surgical service.

Convenient.

We are centrally located and easy to get to, with ample parking at the door. We are open late each weeknight and hold Saturday clinics to fit around your work commitments.
