The clinic is closed for four consecutive days over Christmas.

We ask that you be mindful of your pet’s veterinary requirements, i.e if they need more medication, parasite control, food or a consult. Please call a week in advance of running out of any supplies i.e food or medication, for the following reasons:

-A consult may be required before a vet can ethically/legally dispense more medication
-We may need to order medications in as they may not be stocked on our shelves
-A script may need to written for you to pick up medication from an external source
-Some medication is compounded, and requires additional time for it to be ordered, made
and posted.

We wish to have our patients at home for the holidays with family enjoying the festivities and opening presents. Taking the above measures avoids an unnecessary visit to an emergency centre as they will be inundated over the holiday season. There are some veterinary clinics that are closed over the entire Christmas and New Year period adding to the demand of emergency centres.

If we are able to help you be prepared for this period, then it helps other veterinary clinics manage the holiday period better.

Please call 9899 9518 if you are unsure if or when your pet is due for a review.

COVID-19 Update
(Updated: 3rd December, 2020)

Given the low number of cases of COVID in Melbourne we are welcoming clients back in the clinic for consults.

Please note that due to number restrictions any other sales still need to be done over the phone, preferably in advance.

We do however have a strict protocol you will need to adhere to:

  • Please call the clinic when you arrive in the carpark for your appointment or to collect pre-ordered supplies.  We will direct you where to go at that time
  • Cats must be in secure cages and dogs on a lead
  • Before coming into the clinic via the front door please hand sanitise from the sanitiser stand on the front porch.  All clients over the age of 12 must wear a mask.
  • When in the waiting or consulting room please remain seated and practice social distancing measures
  • Due to the size of our consulting rooms we can strictly only have one client entering per consult.

We ask that you do not attend the clinic if you or any of your close contacts have been diagnosed with COVID19, are awaiting test results or are displaying any symptoms. Call the clinic if your pet requires treatment and our staff will work out the best way to assist you.

Please be aware we are also adapting to these changes and there may be some hiccups and delays as we develop suitable procedures.  Please be patient and courteous to our staff, we are trying our best.

Please stay safe and do not hesitate to call or email us if you have any questions.


The cattery is happily open again. Hours are as usual but please call when you arrive to drop off or pick up your feline friends.  Any inspections will be strictly by appointment only.
