Pet Medical is a group of three locally owned veterinary clinics in the Upper Hunter Valley. Thanks to highly trained and dedicated staff we are able to provide the best possible medical, surgical and dental care to the beloved pets of our region.

An important part of our mission is to make every visit to one of our animal hospitals a warm and enjoyable experience for you.

We invite you to drop in and meet our friendly staff at your local Pet Medical clinic.

 

We Can End Parvo!

There has been recent outbreaks of the deadly Parvovirus in surrounding suburbs. In our local areas, there has been less Parvovirus than we have had in  years! Congratulations to the community! We have already vaccinated 500 dogs this year. Parvovirus outbreaks have been all around us but hardly touched us.

It’ll be back in September so we need to be vigilant with our vaccinations.

If your dog hasn’t been vaccinated in the last 12 months, please get them up to date before spring arrives. It is so important to not only get puppies vaccinated but also adult dogs. Adult dogs with lapsed or no vaccination immunity will actually shed the virus in their faeces.

Did you know: Just 1 gram of virus, that’s a kidney bean sized piece of faeces, can contain enough virus to infect 1000 dogs. 

We walk it around on our shoes and it remains in the environment for 12 months.  Vaccinated dogs do no shed virus, therefore they do not spread the disease.

Vaccination is easy. At Pet Medical we hold a $30  vaccination clinic every Sunday at Muswellbrook between 12 and 2 pm. We also offer a free vaccination if your dog is seen for a health consultation.

Vaccination is not just about you, it’s about the health of our dogs in our community. It’s a terrible disease that causes immense suffering and often death. Pet Medical is on a mission to eradicate Parvovirus from our community in just three years. Please help us by making sure your dog or puppy is up to date with their vaccinations. Beating this deadly virus only takes a little time and money. Please do your part and make sure your puppy is protected.

July was National Desexing Month

Thank you to all who have taken part in our discounted desexing in July.

In total, we did an amazing 206 desexings! 

Thank you for helping decrease the number of unwanted puppies and kittens entering the world.

Did you know – last year more than 3,000 kittens and 1,200 puppies were born, surrendered or simply dumped at one of five shelters alone; with many others abandoned to live and breed on the streets. There are so many unwanted litters across the country every year.

This could all be easily solved by just one simple operation, the desexing of your pet.

Benefits of desexing your pet:

  • Reduced risk of getting cancer or other diseases of the reproductive organs
  • There is no need to find homes for unwanted litters of kittens and puppies
  • Less prone to wander and fight, and are less likely to get lost or injured
  • Generally live longer and healthier
  • Less likely to display territorial behaviours like spraying indoors

SNIP Sunday

A few years ago we saw the need to do something about the huge numbers of stray and abandoned cats in our local community. Every year we get hundreds of kittens brought into the clinic as a result of too many undesexed cats, euthanising them is just heartbreaking so we developed our non for profit SNIP kitten rescue and adoption program. Since then we have successfully re-homed 500 desexed, vaccinated and microchipped kittens.

On July 23rd, we held our annual SNIP Sunday, where our staff volunteered their time to desex cats at an incredible discount.

We did an amazing 62 cat desexings!

This decreases the number of unwanted kittens, and raises money for our wonderful charity SNIP, which re-homes unwanted kittens to loving new homes.

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise these vitally needed funds!

Please help us and do your bit for the community by desexing your pet cat, together we can reduce the amount of unwanted litters of kittens being dumped or abandoned.

 Cat Boarding

Did you know at Pet Medical we offer spacious stress free cat boarding.

We are trialing a new space with custom made cat enclosures that open up into each other for our feline friends.

The cats really love the large spacious enclosures and are very relaxed and stress free.

We have modified the area to align with the gold standard of cat accreditation, and look to further improve the facilities in the near future.

Staff are accredited and specially trained to monitor for signs of stress and how to remedy these.

We now also have new cat scratch posts and play gyms  so your cat has more quality one on one time.

Interested in booking your cat in, we now have online boarding bookings for convenience.
