A note to our customers
We remain open for business during this Covid-19 crisis, ring in advance on 02 6742 5585 so we can assist you.

About Us

Gunnedah Pet Vet is open for business, we provide a professional caring service for all your pet and working dogs needs. Veterinarian Ann Luke has been practising for 35 years so you can be assured of receiving experienced care in the treatment of your cat or dog.

 

Ann opened the vet clinic in 2005 to ensure consistency of service and high standards of care. It is always the same vet who will see to your pet, no chopping or changing with a different vet every visit!

 

This is possible as the clinic is dedicated to only small animals, as large animals (sheep cattle horses) are not part of the clinic's offerings. 

Ann Luke has been a veterinarian for over 30 years. Ann graduated from the University Of Sydney, and prior to setting up this clinic worked in various towns in NSW and Victoria seeing both large and small animals.
 

Ann prefers to operate a small animal only clinic where she is able to provide a consistent service to the pets of Gunnedah. The clinic operates as a boutique clinic with a dedicated team of vet nurses supporting Ann's vet work. 

With dedicated, trained staff your pet will be offered the best care available.

Ann's mobile for follow on care for your pet after hours is 0417 677 827

 
 

Services

Wellness Exams

Wellness exams form a key part of the examination during annual vaccinations, but can be scheduled at any time. One pet year is equal to about 6 human years, so regular checkups are worthwhile. The examination includes checking the skin, eyes, ears, lymph nodes, limbs for soundness, teeth and mouth, heart and lungs. 

Spey & Castrate - neutering

Most dogs and cats make better pets when they are desexed. Talk to us if you have any questions. We operate every day, and your pet goes home the same afternoon. All pets receive pain medication (analgesia) which lasts for 24 hours. 

Your pet needs to fast for at least 6 hours prior to admitting for surgery, but can have water. 

Care after hours

Hospitalised patients are monitored according to needs after hours. Level of care will be discussed with owners when your pet needs to stay overnight.  

Vaccinations

Parvovirus is prevalent in Gunnedah so vaccinating your dog every year is of the utmost importance. The vaccination also protects against Distemper and Hepatitis (C3), with optional canine cough cover (C5).

Cats also need annual vaccinations - feline enteritis and feline flu. We recommend vaccinating against feline AIDS and leukemia for outside cats. 

Surgery

We have  a well equipped surgery and Veterinarian Ann Luke enjoys operating  - from the routine desexes to more complicated cases such as bladder stones and gastrointestinal foreign bodies.  

Our vet nursing staff are qualified and all patients are monitored with state of the art patient monitoring systems - leaving little room for anaesthetic complications. 

Microchipping

Microchipping all pets is the law in NSW. Microchips are tiny - about the size of a grain of rice. We mostly microchip pups at 6 weeks of age with their first vaccination. 

Dental Care

Does your pet have smelly breath? Call in for a free assessment. Your pet may need a dental. 

Radiology and Ultrasound

Digital radiology means a quick turnaround and excellent quality x rays. Pregnancy diagnosis from 25-28 days using ultrasound.

Anaesthetic monitoring

We have a multi system anaesthetic monitoring machine which allows for the ultimate in care for your pet when anaesthetised.
