Welcome! Here are 6 reasons to visit our clinic

1. Your Pet Knows their Vet

You should not see a new face each time; instead someone who gets to know you, your animal and their health history.

2. Puppy and Kitten Care

Your first visit is FREE. Take the stress out with our simple health care guide and vaccination program. Our Adelaide Delta-accredited puppy preschool classes will help make puppy training easier.

3. Availability

You can visit until 6:30pm weekdays and 4pm Saturdays. If your call to us is answered we guarantee we will see your pet on the day you request. We never say we are full or not available to see you.

4. Expertise

You have access to our modern, highly equipped practice and regular vet and nurse education. We offer the most up to date and effective diagnostics and treatments possible. We refer to specialists when it’s best for your pet.

5. Pricing

We are independently owned and do not have monetary targets or a bonus structure. Your pet will never be recommended a treatment that does not help them. The cost of any treatment will always be discussed in advance.

6. We’re Local

You will be treated with friendliness, courtesy and respect and your questions will be answered fully. Your children are welcome to come and take part in their family pets’ care. We believe your pet’s visit should be as enjoyable as possible.

Whether you have a dog or puppy, cat or kitten, rabbit, ferret, chicken, guinea pigrat  or mouse , our experienced vets Dr Andrew Spanner, Dr Claire Daly and Dr Sky Measday will love to see you.

Puppy Preschool

The Walkerville Vet Puppy Pre School Program is Based on the Delta Canine Good CitizenTM Lifetime Manners Manual©. Classes conducted by Susanne Eckert,  AABP Professional Dog Trainer Pet Professional Guild

What Is Puppy Preschool For?

A great way to give your puppy the best start to life

  1. Safe socialisation in the critical ages from 9 to 16 weeks.
  2. Theory & practice of modern training methods.
  3. Owner education on puppy care
  4. Positive memories of the clinic.
  5. Reward-based training as the most scientifically validated method.

Not only is it fun for your puppy but gives you, as owners, the opportunity to ask questions and know you are not alone with the common puppy problems you may face.

Puppy preschool is not going to give you a trained dog, but it will give you the tools and skills to set your pup on the path to becoming a canine good citizen.
