Meet Dr Dog!
  • Friendly staff who know you and won’t treat you like a number.
  • Expert, caring vets, each with at least 15-20 years experience.
  • Owner-operated, so personal interest in providing great service.
  • Continuity from a small tight-knit team with great communication.



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.


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.


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.


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


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


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.
