About Us

Who We Are

Port Melbourne Veterinary Clinic and Hospital was established in 1997 on Bay street, two streets from the beach.  The clinic is purpose-built and fully equipped for all types of surgeries.

We have four full-time veterinarians, two part-time veterinarians and 8 veterinary nurses and animal attendants.  Our friendly staff are passionate about health and value your relationship with your pet.  Your pet's well-being is our number one priority.

We are open 7 days a week, including most public holidays.

Our vets have decades of experience in the veterinary field, and are up to date with the latest knowledge as we value continuing education.  We attend seminars and conferences on a regular basis.

We offer a pet export service with Dr. Julie Paris and Dr Lewis Kirkham, who are accredited export veterinarians.  If you are planning to travel overseas with your pet, give us a call to book in an appointment.

We have in-house pathology for fast turn-around results, but also use external laboratories.

We are close to multiple referral centres and work closely to do the best for your pets.  If your pet needs a specialist's option, we can get a specialist to come into our clinic for a diagnostic work-up or send you to one of specialist centres in Melbourne.
