4. Specialized Grooming Facilities
We are specially equipped to offer you and your pet a complete grooming experience.

Please note that in the interest of our patients health and wellbeing that all pets being admitted for grooming must have a current C5 vaccination for dogs or F3 Vaccination for cats
5. Puppy Preschool
Bringing home a new puppy is a very exciting time. However there are a lot of requirements a new puppy has and there is a lot of information as a new pet owner you need to absorb. That is why we offer Puppy Preschool classes. Puppy Preschool is designed fro puppies between the ages of 8-16 weeks. These classes are designed to socialize your puppy with other people, puppies and of course the vet clinic. These classes are also extremely informative as we want to be able to give you all the information and advice you need, to be the best pet parent you can be. Please contact the clinic if you would like more information on our Puppy Preschool Classes

A University of Queensland Graduate from 1993, I originally moved home to Mount Isa to practice. Meeting my husband there, we then travelled for his work and eventually settled in Brisbane in 2000. I worked at a 24 hour Hospital, which suited my love of Internal Medicine and Diagnostics, Emergency Medicine and Critical Care. I also completed postgraduate study in Cardiology. We relocated to Toowoomba in 2013 for a Tree Change, settling in Highfields. We love the space and the local community. I am also loving the different pace of practice, where I get to give more time and attention to my patients. As a family, our spare time is spent camping, slow roasting meats on the spit and vacuuming up hair from our extended furry family.
