One of the best things you can offer your pet is prevention rather than having to treat illness. To do this we recommend six-monthly health checks for your pet, especially in those aged six years and older and regular dental checks as well as monitoring your pet’s health and acting as soon as you notice a change in their appetite, water intake or general well-being. Combining this with regular exercise, a good healthy diet and preventatives, will see your pet maintain optimum health.
Every year, we see around five hundred lost or displaced (mostly dogs) come through our doors. Usually we can reunite them with their families pretty quickly but in the cases where dogs are not micro-chipped, this makes our job even harder. We post across all our social media platforms to ensure they get home safely but as always, the best thing you can do is microchip your pet as soon as you bring him or her home.
With an in-house laboratory for instant results as well as access to Queensland’s best external laboratories, we offer a complete range of all the diagnostic testing your pet needs, this helps us get a more accurate diagnosis on what is bothering your pet.
As a qualified animal acupuncturist, Dr John believes not only in medical prevention and treatment for your pet, but in combining a holistic approach towards the health and well-being of your pet. We’ve seen great improvements in ailments within our patients where we’ve used either a combination or regular treatments of acupuncture alone.
The most important part of a puppy's life is socialisation - this means with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, breeds and creeds. Our puppy school is a four-week course and teaches your pup manners but also how to behave around other dogs - young and old. For puppies aged 8-16weeks.
We accept cash, Mastercard, Eftpos and Visa.
All invoices are due and receivable at time of consultation or discharge from the hospital.
We also offer VetPay. Vet Pay is a payment plan that lets you pay for your pets treatment over time. You pay your vet an initial deposit & admin fee, and Vetpay will direct debit the balance in fortnightly repayments from your nominated bank account. Vetpay can be applied for at home in advance to your visit.

From routine de-sexings to more complex orthopedic surgery, from twisted bowels to fish-hook removal…we’ve seen it all come through our doors. Your pet’s health and recovery from anesthetic are our main priority - to ensure this, all surgical cases are placed on a drip and given pain relief as standard (no extra costs). Our patients are fully-monitored during anesthetic and their recovery. We have specialty waiting areas for all our pets for pre and post operative care and monitoring. All surgeries are carried out in our state-of-the-art clinic.
Oral health/hygiene is very important for optimum animal health and one of the leading health concerns among our pets - particularly those six years and older. We perform free dental health checks, routine dental prophys as well as the more complex orthodontic procedures.
x-rays and ultrasound
All x-rays for your fur friends are carried out within our practice. We use the latest digital technology in both full-body and dental x-ray. Using a state-of-the-art ultrasound, we are also able to identify foreign bodies that can allow us to better diagnose your pet’s ailments and act quickly to prevent further illness.
We use the dog triennial (3-yearly) vaccine as this also allows for socialisation of puppies from 10 weeks of age and eliminates the need for three vaccinations.
