Veterinary Hospital FAQs

Our Sydney, Hunter and Broken Hill Shelters have veterinary hospitals onsite. In addition, we have a veterinary hospital located at Tighes Hill and a Consult Room available at our Care Centre in Rouse Hill.

Our prices vary, but we aim to make them as affordable as possible. If you hold a health care card or pensioner card, we may be able to still help you provide the best care for your pet. Please contact your local veterinary location for more information here.
