Enriching lives through happy healthy pets

The Peninsula Vet Care difference


Here at Peninsula Vet Care we aim to enrich the lives of our patients, and also their owners. We are excited to be able to provide the highest levels of health care to our animal friends, allowing you to sit back and enjoy the wonderful benefits a happy, healthy pet brings to your lives.

We want to build a life long relationship with you and your pet. This enables us to best understand both their needs and yours, and therefore provide compassionate and caring healthcare solutions.

What is the Peninsula Vet Care difference?

A trusted friend on the Peninsula

Peninsula Vet Care had humble beginnings as a single vet practice in Dromana in 1980. It is now owned and operated by seven veterinary partners who all work in the hospitals and live on the Peninsula. We are passionate about the Peninsula supporting local schools, not for profit and sporting organisations as well as providing free veterinary care for injured wildlife. Each hospital runs independently, as benefits their locality, but all locations focus on providing the best quality compassionate care and service for our patients and clients.

The best of both worlds

Unlike human health, veterinary clinics need to provide a much broader range of services to our patients. We are the equivalent of your local GP, a pharmacy and a range of specialists all rolled into one. This requires Veterinary Surgeons to have diverse knowledge of medicine and surgery to be able to provide the best quality of care to your pets.

With more then 30 Vets in our team, our patients have immediate access to an unsurpassed diversity and wealth of experience, all focused on improving the health of your best friend. The best part is this collaboration between vets happens in the background, seamlessly through centralised patient histories, which means in most cases you won’t even need to see another Vet to access this broader knowledge base, and the long term relationship between your pet, yourself and your vet is maintained.

Services range from diagnosis and treatment of complex illnesses, pet behavioural issues, advanced surgical procedures including key hole, spinal and knee reconstruction, x-ray, ultrasound, skin conditions, pocket pets, and pet export.
