We are proud to have cared for the Dogs, Cats, small animals, reptiles, and wildlife of the Central Coast since 2004.

As professionally trained Vets and Nurses we understand the importance of treating you and your pet with compassion and understanding. We will treat your beloved pet as one of our own and make sure to alleviate any stress you may have by clearly explaining any treatment your pet needs, why they need it, and what cost is involved.

Our clinic founder has over 20 years of veterinarian experience, and together with our team is continually learning and improving to provide the highest quality service.

We are an independently owned vet clinic offering a full range of services to look after the physical and mental well being of your beloved pet. All staff are Fear Free certified, a leading program that aims to prevent and alleviate fear, anxiety and stress in pets through education and understanding. This ensures your vet visits are fear free for your pet, and stress free for you.
