Sydney veterinary hospital
Our new, state-of-the-art veterinary hospital, located at the Sydney Shelter in Yagonna, officially opened its doors in December 2015. Our team of dedicated, experienced and qualified veterinarians and nurses provide medical care, services and products to local-owned pets, as well as to abandoned, homeless, injured and sick shelter animals. Best of all, when you use any of the RSPCA's services, the money goes straight back into the organisation. This helps deliver medical treatment to animals who are in RSPCA NSW's care. Paying a veterinary bill should always feel so good!
The veterinary hospital is well equipped with an extensive range of modern veterinary equipment. Our skilled Veterinary Team offers a wide range of surgical expertise, from routine desexing to complicated, non-routine orthopaedic and soft tissue surgeries. We are able to provide quality advice and complete care from diagnosis to discharge, and are open to the public every day.
Consultations by appointment are available between:
Monday to Friday: 9:30 a.m. – 7 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday: 9:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.
