Who are we?

We are a local, family-owned veterinary hospital that strives for excellence in everything that we do. Our mission is to provide the very best health care to pets. Our team is strongly integrated with the regional community and is proud of the role we play in caring for the pets and wildlife of the Northern Rivers.

Whether your little one has fur, feathers or scales, we will provide you with current advice and professional recommendations so that you can make the best ongoing health decisions for them.

We strive to make ‘vet visits’ something that both you and your pet will enjoy. Our hospital is designed to help reduce stress for your pet, such as our separate dog, cat and rabbit wards, and the plentiful supply of treats on offer to fill their tummies during consultations. This also means we take the time to fully understand your situation so that we can give you the most appropriate advice.  One thing you can be sure of is that we have your pet’s interest at heart.

Working from a purpose-built hospital with exceptional facilities, our team of compassionate vets and nurses will provide you and your pet with the very best care

Our History

Opening in 2000, Racecourse Road Veterinary Hospital was build on a passion for animals and their wellbeing and its founders, Dr Willa and Rachelle, still look after many of their original clients today. Over the years has worked hard to provide our clients and patients with outstanding levels of care, and this has lead to clients coming from as far as Brisbane for their pets needs.

Since 2000 the team has grown and as of 2022, we are 16 permanent staff, although that close family feeling still exists. In 2022 Willa & Rachelle passed the torch on to Tonje & JJ who are excited to continue this legacy.
