Hello, from
Greencross Vets


Welcome to Greencross Vets Carrara

We are currently undergoing an important upgrade and from early December 2021, will have a brand new CT scanner in-clinic at Greencross Vets Carrara.

Unlike conventional x-rays, CT scanning provides detailed 3D images of many types of soft tissue as well as the lungs, bones, and blood vessels, improving veterinary diagnostics for each patient.

As one of the few veterinary clinics with a CT scanner on site, we’ll be able to quickly and more accurately diagnose our pet patients and in some cases, avoid a visit to the animal hospital.

If you have any questions, please get in touch on 5596 2322 and we look forward to welcoming you and your pets for a check up soon.

CT scanner

Our Services.

Getting your pet desexed (neutered or spayed) is essential to their health. All Greencross Vets facilities are completely sterile and use the latest in surgical equipment.


Prevention is the best medicine. Kitten and puppy vaccinations (injections) and adult pet vaccinations prevent disease. Get your pet’s vaccinations up-to-date.

Greencross Vets offer a range of dentistry services like cat and dog teeth cleaning. Consider us your pet’s veterinarian and dentist combined.


Don’t have your own clippers? Let us take care of dog grooming for you. Our clinic offers premium dog grooming for your pet.


An ultrasound is a painless diagnostic procedure that allows vets to take a closer look at your pet’s health. We only use the latest technology for the most accurate diagnoses.


Greencross Vets clinics are equipped with high-quality radiograph equipment including X-ray machines, automatic processors, and X-ray view equipment.

Clinical Pathology

Clinical pathology allows our vets to analyse and diagnose health conditions. Common laboratory tests include blood tests, urinalysis, faecal tests and biopsy examination.

Laboratory Testing

The latest in-house laboratory equipment allows our vets to perform a range of diagnostic tests to achieve accurate, rapid diagnosis of your pets’ health status.

Puppy School

Being a pet parent is enjoyable and rewarding, but training a new puppy or dog can seem like a difficult task. It doesn’t have to be.
