Altona Veterinary Clinic
Welcome to the Altona Veterinary Clinic with Drs Adam, Dennis, Adeline, Samantha, Ruby and Christine. Our clinic has been a member of the Altona community for over 20 years now!
The clinic underwent renovations in 2010 to improve the facilities for your pets and our staff. We now have 2 consultation rooms to minimise waiting times and a separate surgical theatre to improve sterility. Our waiting area has plenty of room with a side for cats and a side for dogs and a large television to keep you entertained while you wait. We also have a kids corner to keep them entertained while you wait!
Providing the best care for your pet
Our staff are caring and experienced and are continually undergoing training so that they are better able to answer all your questions and provide you with up to date advice.
We understand the bond that exists between owners and their pets and therefore remain committed to providing the best care for your pets.
We hope you find all the information you require here. If not, please pop in or give us a call. We will be more than happy to answer all of your questions.
Consultations and vaccinations
We perform a complete health check for every consultation and a written report is provided upon request. Puppies and kittens receive a free puppy or kitten pack at their first visit.
Fully equipped medical and surgical facilities
Dentistry is an important component of your pets health care. We perform dental examinations and have a dental X-Ray machine and brand new dental station (good enough to do owners teeth as well!). We have a new digital xray machine to improve the quality and speed of developing Xray films. We have specialised equipment including blood pressure monitor, endoscope and ECG machine. We do in house blood testing and microscopic examinations for rapid results.
We have a professional grooming service at the Altona Veterinary Clinic every Tuesday and Saturday.
Cat Adoption Centre
You can adopt a new feline friend through our adoption kitten program.
Puppy Preschool program
A wonderful and positive socialisation and learning experience for both new dog owners and for their new puppy.
Self service hydrobath
Call in at any time during our opening hours to use the hydrobath. With warm water and massage jets, this is a great way to clean your pet without hurting your back and staying dry!
With the costs of quality veterinary care increasing, we highly recommend taking out pet insurance. Having pet insurance eliminates the stress of the financial side of things so that you can concentrate on getting your pet the best care possible when they are unwell. Here is the link to one of the largest pet insurance providers who we have had positive dealings with.
We provide desexing for cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs and ferrets.
