Our Services.

Greencross Vets Fairfield offer a comprehensive range of professional veterinary services to cater for all your pet care needs utilising the latest diagnostic equipment.


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.

Heartworm Prevention

Heartworm can be hard to detect, but it needn’t be hard to prevent. Greencross Vets recommends year round heartworm prevention. Ask your vet about prevention today.


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



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.

Carissa Faulkner

Carissa Faulkner

Veterinary Nurse

Growing up in the rural town of Barraba, NSW, where animals out numbered people, Carissa has always been surrounded by animals. Her favorite place to visit was her grandfathers’ farm where she could feed the pigs, cows, sheep, horses, ducks, chickens, ferrets and rabbits. Carissa first realised she wanted to work with animals after an unfortunate accident with her dog that followed with several visits to the local vets, she was fascinated with watching the progress of my dogs’ health. Her first job working with animals was at one of the largest RSPCA’s in the country in Melbourne, where she was enjoyed to no end being able to walk dogs, groom cats and socialise rabbits.

Having completed her Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing, she plans to continue her professional education and achieve a Certificate IV in captive animals.
