I have been bringing my birds to this vet for a long while as my bird Merlin has long existing health issues. They have been nothing but kind and lovely towards me during moments of stress. They have also given my birds lots of love and care. Especially Dr Lucinda, Dr Brandon and Dr Luke. I appreciate all that you have done for my birds and me. 

Monique Jackson

Client – Murdoch

Excellent service! The vet nurses and Dr Brandon Arnell were super caring and very informative when treating our female Weiro for a lame leg on a Sunday afternoon. Recommended treatment and detailed cost projections were outlined prior to commencing treatment and we were kept informed. We were also given a follow up phone call the next day to see how Cyril was responding and all treatments, care information and itemised accounts/receipts were emailed promptly. Thank you all for your care and concern.

We took our beloved Guinea pig, biscuit to the unusual pet vets in Murdoch as he had sustained an injury from fighting with one of the other guinea pigs, from the first moment walking into the vets, we felt nothing but welcomed and knew biscuit would be in the best care possible. Unfortunately, biscuit did not survive as the injury was too severe for his little body to survive. We would like to give our utmost gratitude and respect to the vets and staff at the unusual pet vets. We highly recommend this business to anyone looking for amazing vets.

Client – Murdoch

The Unusual Pet Vets at Murdoch are amazing! They provided so much love and care for my pet cockatiel. They improved his overall health massively despite him being on the verge of passing away at one point. Each of the vets there provided in-depth detail about my cockatiel’s health along the way and the price of the bills. Could not have asked for better vets for my cockatiel and I’ll continue to bring him here from now on. Thank you all so much for the care you provided, you have all been amazing!
