About Us

Everything you need to know about our staff and facilities.

Our experienced team of veterinarians is led by Dr David Croft, who with Dr Linda Gregory, Dr Rebecca Beaumont and Dr Dhurka Nirthanakumaran offer a comprehensive range of medical and surgical treatment options.

This includes routine veterinary care, including consultations, vaccinations, surgery, and dentistry.

Our veterinary and nursing teams regularly attend continuing education courses and seminars to ensure your pets are receiving the best and latest treatments available.

We have fully-equipped consulting rooms and surgery, in-house laboratory, digital radiology and ultrasound equipment.
