General News 

  • A big congratulations to Dr. Marcus and Dr. Jodie on the arrival of their third baby girl - Jara Eliza Breh. Jara was born on Monday the 10th of December, weighing 4.06kg and 50cm in length. We are happy to report both Dr. Jodie and Jara are doing well back home. Their older daughters, Zaree and Tarli, are enjoying being big sisters and are being a great help to Dr. Jodie around the house! 


  • A big THANK YOU to everybody who donated so generously to our annual RSPCA Christmas appeal. Our donations stocking actually ended up BREAKING due to the amount of food and goods that were donated! Donations are set to be dropped off to the Lonsdale shelter in the coming weeks so if you happen to have anything you'd like to add it's not too late! 


  • We are now stocking Rogz Dogs + Cats products! We currently have multiple sized collars, leads, harnesses and bowls with more sizes and variety to come over the following few months - so be sure to keep your eyes peeled on our new Rogz stand situated in the clinic waiting room. 


  •  We are seeing a lot of patients with skin disease and allergies at the moment! Did you know that with every 10oc in temperature increase, it DOUBLES the skin irritation. Common signs of skin irritations include redness/pinkness, flakiness and scratching. There are a range of options the clinic can offer you to ease your pet's skin issues. If you are worried about your pet please don't hesitate to phone the clinic and question our experienced Nursing staff.



  • A BIG WARM WELCOME TO OUR NEW VET NURSE...BIANCA! We are thrilled to welcome Bianca on deck as one of our new Veterinary Nurses. Bianca is a qualified and very experienced Veterinary Nurse; she has a background working with small animals, however also with large animals on remote stations and as a stable hand. Bianca has special interests in surgical nursing and consulting. Outside of work, Bianca enjoys travelling (she just got back from a very exciting and jam packed trip in the United States!), camping and is a keen horse rider. She is also kept very busy with a cheeky Staffy mix called "Rodney" and a gorgeous cat called "Django". Please make Bianca feel welcome if you spot her around the clinic 


  • We are soon to be no longer stocking Advance dog and cat food (EXCLUDING their dental food range). We still currently have several ranges of Advance food at the clinic (at time of Dec news update) however once these are sold they will not be ordered in as stock. HOWEVER we can still "special order" Advance food in for your pet if you would like to continue feeding Advance. Orders are done weekly. To arrange a special food order for your pet, please discuss with the Nurses.
