If you have just moved to the area and are looking for a local vet in Townsville, we would be delighted to welcome you to our clinic.

Don’t wait until you need a vet urgently – please pop in to meet us, register your pets, and we can arrange to send you dog vaccination or cat vaccination reminders and ensure that your pets worming and anti-parasitic treatments are suitable for our area.

There are a number of pet care issues to tackle when living in the sub-tropical climate of North Queensland. As local Townsville vets we are well placed to advise you about these potential problems – and how to avoid them. They include heat stress, heartworm, hookworm, brown ticks and flea infestation, threats from snakes and cane toad poisoning! Don’t panic though – we have been established as vets in Townsville since 1982 and, as such, are well experienced and knowledgeable about the local area, and therefore able to help you manage these potential problems.

If you’d like to find out about a particular issue, we have lots of useful information on our website, including about the potential problems mentioned above, which you can find by using the navigation menu to the left.

In spite of the extreme environment this beautiful area of North Queensland is a wonderful place to live and there are many fantastic places to walk and exercise your dog.

Don’t forget to change your pet’s microchip details so the registration is relevant to where you now live. You can do this on-line, or we can assist you with this. You will also need to change the local authority registration to Townsville City Council.

We are central, conveniently located with ample parking, and have good links with the veterinary department at James Cook University which provides excellent specialist and emergency assistance for our clients when it is required.

We hope your move here has been trouble free. Please browse this website to become familiar with local information and services and “like” us on Facebook to get current clinic news.
