About Us

A large team of caring & experienced vets

 

Working in the Matraville area since 1994. There has been a vet at 525 Bunnerong Road for as long as people can remember. The site is synonymous with veterinary health care services in Matraville.

Over the months of February and March 2020, 525 Bunnerong Road underwent major renovations. The car park and clinic have been dramatically transformed into a modern, welcoming environment for both clients and their furry friends alike.

The Matraville Veterinary Practice team is very proud to be able to offer high quality veterinary care from this new facility. We invite you to call in and see our new hospital and the wide range of services we are able to perform in-house.

Our vets and nurses are animal lovers themselves and are part of the local pet loving community.

We are the local vets who know your pets.
