When you come to see us, your pet will be treated as part of our family and we will do all we can to make sure that they have a comfortable and stress free experience.
Do I need to book an appointment to see a vet?
Yes, our clinic runs via appointment only. We do not take walk-in appointments. This will ensure that you will not be waiting when you come to see the vet as we often become busy during consulting hours. Our number is (02) 4647 6199.
Do I need to book an appointment to get my dog/cat groomed?
Yes. We currently only provide grooming services for cats and dogs if they require a sedation or general anaesthetic. Because of this, we require all grooms to be scheduled in advance.
What preparation is there for routine surgeries?
All surgeries require fasting from 8pm the night before. You can feed your pet as normal until 8pm, then no food after that time; they can have water overnight but take the water away when you wake up in the morning. Please have your pets into us before 9am on the day of the surgery. Once you have booked in for a surgery we will send you an email detailing the preparation.
My dog/cat is unwell but I am unsure whether they need to see a vet…
If you are worried about your pet being unwell, it is advised that you come and see a vet, even if you are unsure. What may seem like minor symptoms could be indicative of a more serious problem. Please call us on (02) 4647 6199.
What happens in an emergency?
Emergencies come in all shapes and sizes, from being bitten by a snake to broken bones and wounds. Due to the large amount of situations that constitute and emergency, we work on a case by case basis. It is important that you consider your own safety during these times, so stay calm and come to the clinic as soon as you can, if you are stressed it may be a good idea to let someone else drive, please do not speed. Please call us before coming in so that we can prepare for your arrival, but we understand if you are not able to.
IF YOU HAVE AN EMERGENCY, PLEASE RING (02) 4647 6199.
What happens in Camp Kitty?
Camp Kitty is our cat boarding facility, where you can be reassured that your kitty is being well looked after while you are away. Our nurses clean, feed and water each cat twice daily, and regularly check that they are healthy and happy throughout the day. If we notice that something isn’t quite right, we will notify you (or your elected contact person) and one of our vets will conduct a health check.
Do you board dogs?
Unfortunately not. As we are a hospital located in an industrial area, we do not possess the space or facilities needed to give your dog the exercise they require while in boarding. If you need advice on choosing a boarding facility for dogs, please call us on (02) 4647 6199. We recommend inspecting a boarding facility before boarding your dog there, and most facilities are able to accommodate inspections if you ask.
