Our veterinary clinic

We are a friendly team of professionals working within a modern well-equipped practice.

Our clinic has recently received a new extension and the original front is about to undergo a significant renovation. We have multiple consultation rooms, two operating theatres and a prep room all housing the latest equipment for medical procedures and surgeries including: 

Our location

We are located in Salamander Bay, which is one of the stunning areas within the Port Stephens region known for its pristine beaches, water activities, and mountain top views.

Here, we enjoy a nature-filled lifestyle both in and out of the clear blue waters. With a resident population of over 160 bottlenose dolphins, whales that pass on their migration and a marine park, you’ll also discover endless water activities including first-class snorkelling and diving, sailing and cruising, jet-skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, surfing, deep-sea fishing and more.

If you prefer to stay dry, there’s spectacular bushwalking and wildflowers, 4WD sand dune tours, sand boarding and tobogganing, horse and camel riding and go-karting. Golf enthusiasts will find two championship courses at Horizons Golf Resort and Nelson Bay Golf Club.

Whatever you like to do in your spare time, there’s something for everyone.
