A Farewell to Paws

Celebrating Dr. Ali Coleman's Retirement and Legacy at Blackwood Vets



Blackwood Veterinary Surgery provides modern, professional and affordable health care for your pets. We aim to make your pet feel at ease in our clinic with a caring and gentle approach to treatment and consultations.  All of us here at Blackwood Veterinary Surgery are passionate about pets and are avid animal lovers. We are located in the heart of Blackwood, next door to Blackwood Hire.

With us, you will be fully supported with sound advice first and foremost. We know that helping our clients starts with providing a good understanding of health care issues and treatment options. With good advice and professional recommendations, you will be well-equipped to make the best ongoing health care decisions for your pet.

We have fully equipped examination rooms, diagnostic machines and pharmaceutical stores so we can provide on-the-spot assistance for nearly all pet health and medical needs. Take a moment to meet our team and our own pets. We look forward to seeing you and your pet.

As part of our continued addition of services we provide, we have Ultrasonography available. Click on each for more information. We now also have a Hydrobath and a Groomer in clinic where we can, clip, wash and dry your dog for you.  No more sore backs leaning over your bath at home!  This is in addition to our comprehensive In House Laboratory, Digital Radiography and Dental Radiography.

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 can now run comprehensive urine testing. This machine is the SediVue DX Urine Sediment Analyser and in less than 5 minutes is able to 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 Pageant.

We are happy to say, after a 2-year hiatus from COVID the Pageant was celebrated again in December 2022.
