Amazing and Caring Staff

Amazing and caring staff at the Ferntree Gully Clinic. Our baby rat was not well, and they always made time to help and support her. Very knowledgeable and compassionate. Would highly recommend and absolutely will use again. Thank you to everyone at Ferntree Gully for being there for us and Tabby.

The Best Experience

I had the best experience I have ever had at the vet with my rabbits Ralph and Effie at the Ferntree Gully clinic. Dr Sharon Tsim was wonderful and treated my rabbits like her own pets. I have never seen them so relaxed at the vet before! She was very knowledgeable and gave me great information after the appointment. I will never go anywhere else now and would recommend this clinic to anyone with unusual pets.

Tabby Louise

Client – Ferntree Gully

Amazing place with lovely staff. We first came here after a recommendation from a friend after my rabbit had some problems were quickly able to fix them with a few diet changes. I trust them with my rabbits and i love how much you care for them. Would 100% recommend to people because good rabbit savvy vets are hard to find. Thank you for caring about bunnies and other small animals!

Client – Ferntree Gully

Very professional vets there! They have the vaccination available when every other vet clinic I called didn’t. They know rabbits so well that I was feeling very comfortable and confident to let them take care of my rabbit even though its further from home!

Danielle Lam

Client – Ferntree Gully

Love the welcoming receptionist and the vet. They treated my fur babies with care and also follow-up the subsequent day, just to make sure my bunnies are recovering well.
