Policy for COVID Positive Clients

If you are COVID positive, have been in contact with a positive case, or have any signs of illness at all, do not attend the clinic under any circumstances.

You must arrange for a third, unexposed and healthy person to bring your animal to the clinic. This is to prevent our service being made unavailable to all animals by transmission occurring within the clinic. We thank you for your understanding.

Welcome! Here are 5 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. Stress Free Care

Relax with easy to follow puppy health care programs and Delta-accredited preschool classes. Kittens & rabbits can relax too in special rooms of their own far from dogs. Your first puppy or kitten visit is free.

3. Expertise

You have access to a spacious, highly equipped practice completed in 2019 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.

4. 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. Pricing is transparent and the cost of any treatment will always be discussed in advance.

5. 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 Drs Andrew Spanner, Claire Daly, Johann Rajasingham and Brooke Carey will love to see you.
