Our hospital has been locally operated for over 5o years and is an important part of the local community. We have a great team of vets and nurses and a great client base. We aim to provide a high standard of medical and surgical knowledge and treatment to our small animal and equine patients in a friendly, compassionate hospital environment.

Bunbury is a large regional coastal city without the Perth hustle and bustle but only 2 hours away from all the capital city services. We have fantastic schools to choose from, good retail, entertainment, and sporting facilities. For those who appreciate wine and gourmet produce, we are within easy reach of the Margaret River region.
