We cater for animals that require sedation whilst receiving a haircut. We administer an appropriate sedative so that our nurses can complete a basic groom. Baths are also available.

We offer housecalls to local clients and their pets depending on demand and our availability. We endeavor to organise home-euthanasias throughout the week when necessary, at a time that is most appropriate for clients and patients.
We welcome injured and homeless wildlife and they will be treated at no cost. Please ensure the animal is kept warm and safe before bringing them to the hospital and note the address of where the animal was found (if releasable it will be to this same spot if practicable). For further advice please call Sydney Wildlife on 9413 4300 or visit their website http://www.sydneywildlife.org.au/. Please remember that it’s illegal for a member of the public to provide ongoing care of a wild animal, therefore once we have treated and cleared the animal they will be passed to a certified wildlife carer who will assess and prepare them for release.
What do cars and pooches have in common? They both get dirty! That’s why we have a safe and hygienic bath option here at the hospital that’s as easy as a coin-operated car wash. Located at the front of the hospital is our Tru Blu dog bath which is suitable for dogs of all sizes. It uses all-natural, highest quality, bio-degradable shampoo, conditioner, and flea and tick rinse. Ask us to show you how to use it, next time you’re in.
