Welcome to Greencross Vets Paradise
Greencross Vets Paradise has been providing veterinary services for Adelaide pets for over 40 years and are now backed by the resources of the Australia wide Greencross Vets group.
We operate from a modern, purpose built veterinary clinic and are well known for providing friendly and comprehensive veterinary care while also putting both our clients and pets at ease
Our staff, both vets and nurses are not only passionate about animals and their care, they are also highly trained to look after your pets and are always expanding their knowledge through both internal and external seminars and courses.
Having 4 experienced vets who can regularly compare notes ensures that your pet can get an automatic ‘in-house’ referral for those more challenging cases. Further referrals for peace of mind are available through the local Veterinary specialist and referral centre.
For those emergencies that always seem to occur after hours, we have confidence that the local Animal Emergency Centre will provide whatever level of care is needed to restore your pet to comfort.
Some of our unique services offered include:
Online Appointment Scheduling
Cat friendly consulting rooms (dog free) to reduce stressful visits
Puppy Pre School ‘best start to life’ program
Diet advice and ‘Porky Pets’ weight loss advice
ECG Heart Rhythm analysis
Sterile theatre for general and major soft tissue and orthopaedic (bone) surgery
Endoscope examination of the airways and stomach
