Veterinary Services

You and your pet will enjoy the highest level of care and service when you visit an RSPCA veterinary hospital. Our highly experienced veterinary teams and specialists, working with state-of-the-art surgical and diagnostic equipment, will ensure your pet receives excellent treatment.

As prevention is always better than cure our team is highly knowledgeable in preventative medicine. You can book a free consult with one of our qualified nurses who can design a wellness program for your pet of any age to ensure they stay healthy for longer, and identify any signs of illness at the earliest stage possible. Our facilities and experience also means we can respond to trauma and emergencies quickly and effectively.

For outpatients, our veterinarians will design a thorough home care plan and we are always available to discuss your questions or concerns.

In addition to treating your pets, we also care for all the animals who are available for adoption. When you adopt a pet from one of our shelters, they have already created a special bond with our medical staff. We would love to see you bring them back to us for their ongoing health care.

Plus, by supporting RSPCA veterinary hospitals, you help us provide sick and injured stray animals, and victims of animal cruelty, with the best treatment available and another chance of finding a good home.

Please note: merchandise purchased cannot be returned as part of the replacement of an animal. Should a product be faulty, you can return that product, in its original condition, to the facility you purchased the merchandise from within seven (7) days and RSPCA NSW will replace that item.
