We have all been affected in some way by the devastating bushfires in Australia.  We ourselves have donated supplies and money to SAVEM (South Australia Veterinary Emergency Management).  They are a volunteer agency set up to treat all animals in an emergency suituation.  If you would like to donate to help our South Australian wildlife please go to www.savem.org.au.

Have a look at our blog page to have a look at some great photos.

We have another laboratory machine to complement our already vast in house testing suite.  Apart from being able to perform blood tests for biochemistry and haematology, we now can run comprehensive urine testing.  This machine is the SediVue DX Urine Sediment Analyser and in less than 5 minutes is able recognise and report on the sediment in the urine. It can recognise cells, bacteria, rods and crystals using facial recognition technology.

A big part of our local community

We are an integral part of our local community. We have helped thousands of our clients cats & dogs, as well as pocket pets. Being so strongly integrated with our local community is important to us and our clients. Our customers know by experience that they can rely on us for sound advice and treatment options and that their pet is in the very best hands with our team. One of the highlights of the year is where we participate in the local Blackwood Christmas Pageant.  We have animals of all shapes and sizes come along, and with their owners, we have a great afternoon. Click here to look at photos from the 2019 Pageant.





Every year we sell Entertainment Books and the money we raise is donated to Minton Farm.  Each book sells for 70 Dollars and 14 Dollars of that goes to Minton Farm to help contribute to the great work they do for injured wildlife. So if your a regular Entertainment Book devotee, or even if your not, consider purchasing one from us this year and the let the proceeds go to a great cause. Thank you to everyone who has supported this cause. This year, 2019, we raised $266 for Minton Farm.  In 2020, we will donate proceeds to Purrfect Paws Pet Rescue, a local non profit Rescue Organisation.
