Health Checks

At Griffith Vet Hospital you will always receive thorough and affordable veterinary care. Our vets are available 6 days a week Monday to Saturday for consultation and pet health checks. Emergency care is available 24*7. If you are concerned about your pet’s health or need an annual check up, you may book online or call us to make an appointment. If unfortunately your pet meets with an accident or needs immediate assistance, please call our team and give us a glimpse of your pet’s situation. Our team will be ready to assist your pet as soon as you reach the clinic.

What to expect in a standard veterinary consultation?

Our standard consultation is 15 mins. However, if you are having multiple pet’s or are having a few concerns that you need answers to, don’t hesitate to let our friendly client engagement officer know so that we can make the necessary arrangements. 

One of our expert vets will give your pet a comprehensive physical examination to make sure your pet gets the treatment and care they need. In some situations, we might need to investigate further to give you the most accurate course of action. Our in-house pathology lab, digital imaging machines and other modern tools allow us to make a quick and accurate diagnosis.

Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual or more complex illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery.

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimal care for pets that require this service.

Specialist veterinarians are independent from our clinic and set their own fees. It's a good idea to ask them about costs when you call to make an appointment.

Our sense of responsibility doesn't end just because you've taken your pet to a specialist. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don't hesitate to call us. We'll be pleased to help you evaluate your options.

We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
