Established for over 40 years, we are a community-based vet and pet boarding facility that’s primary focus is to provide compassionate expert care to your beloved pets. We are passionate about providing the best possible care to your pets via up-to-date knowledge and facilities, an empathetic and understanding approach and the ultimate goal of ensuring each pet has stress-free vet visits and long, happy, healthy lives. The majority of our team live locally so our knowledge of the geographical area is extensive and we are proud to be part of the local pet community. We have a spacious outdoor cat & dog boarding facility that is run by veterinary staff to ensure your pet’s have a safe and happy stay.
The team at Thornleigh Vet are passionate about getting involved with the local community and are involved in a number of community education, sponsorship and local events.

The hospital frequently performs procedures on these pets and helps to raise money via a donation box in our reception and via our Santa Photo Day whereby all proceeds go to this fantastic charity.

At Thornleigh Vets, we consider our role as much more than a team that providers health care in a hospital; We believe that good health is also dependent upon good relationships, and that positive relationships between animals and the people with whom they interact, requires education and ongoing support. That’s why we get out amongst our community and help in the following ways:
1,242 dog attacks were reported to NSW councils in the first quarter of 2019, 95 were incidents involving children, and half sustained serious injuries. 77% of bites are from a dog owned by a victim’s family or a friend. Let’s reduce this number to zero by educating children about the safest way to interact with dogs. It starts with our specially designed presentations for school kids.
Would you know what to do in an emergency involving your pet, or how to provide first aid? Minutes can be crucial if your pet is sick or injured, which is why we’re offering first aid courses to pet owners. Participants receive a pet first aid kit, a detailed first aid manual and tuition by Hospital Director Dr Prue, and Head Nurse Nikki, in a small group setting.
The team at Thornleigh Vets is available to present to schools and community groups on a variety of subjects, such as dog park etiquette, how to interact safely with dogs, choosing the right boarding facility, pet ownership and choosing pets, pets in strata title properties, and more. Sessions are conducted free of charge as a community service.
