Thornleigh Vets are available for consultations 7 days a week. Appointments are preferred although walk-ins will be seen as soon as possible depending on urgency. Consultations are available 8:30am to Midday and 3pm to 7pm weekdays, 9am to 1pm Saturdays and 9am to Midday on Sundays.
We offer vaccinations and annual check ups for dogs, cats and exotic pets. A vaccination consultation will include a full physical examination, dental check, weight check and discussion regarding any issues the pet may have. For more information on our current vaccination protocols please click here (link to handout).
Inhouse specialist services are available for surgery and medical cases. For all other veterinary specialist assistance our vets will refer you to an appropriate specialist across Sydney. Please speak to our vets if you are interested in referral for your pet.
Thornleigh Vet performs a wide range of soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery including desexings, lump removals, dentistry, amputations, fracture repairs, major abdominal surgery and cruciate repairs.
A free dental check is available year round and cost estimates can be provided where dental work is recommended. Comprehensive dental procedures are performed within the hospital including dental digital x-rays. Discounts on dentistry apply if your pet is boarding with us and a free dental check can be performed on admission.
All injured or homeless wildlife are welcome at Thornleigh Vet Hospital and will be treated at no cost. Please ensure the animal is kept warm and safe before bringing up to the hospital and make sure you know the address of where the animal was found (as if releasable they will be released in this same spot if possible). For further advice please call Sydney Wildlife on 9413 4300 or go to their website http://www.sydneywildlife.org.au/. Please note it’s illegal for a member of the public to provide continued care of a wild animal so once we have cleared the animal of any health issues they will be passed on to a certified wildlife carer who will prepare and assess them for release.
Dr Prue Honson is AQIS-accredited and provides export services including rabies vaccinations, export blood tests and final health checks. For all enquiries please contact the clinic with your destination and date of departure.
