Welcome to Greencross Vets Moorooka
The Greencross Moorooka team have been operating in Moorooka for more than 35 years. An extensive renovation 5 years ago has transformed the inside of this character home. The clinic has four consultation rooms, temperature controlled, pheromone infused separate dog and cat enclosures with heated cages, purpose built surgical theatre, an imaging room with digital radiography and ultrasonography, an in-house laboratory and a large prep room with dental machinery and an ultrasonic scaler.
Our team of vets and nurses are invested in providing the highest standards of veterinary care and service. We pride ourselves in making you and your pet feel welcome in our clinic – no issue too small. Whilst we are under the banner of Greencross and have the resources and benefits of a large organisation, we want you to feel the care, support and service as if we were a family owned practice.
We are able to provide a comprehensive array of veterinary services. These include routine wellness health checks and vaccinations, advice on raising your puppy, preventative health care to supporting your ageing pet. We can do a range of laboratory testing in-house as well digital imaging and ultrasonography on the day. We can also do most surgical procedures either ourselves or with a surgeon that comes to the clinic.
