Health Checks

At Junee Vet Hospital you'll always receive thorough and affordable veterinary care. Our vets are available 5 days a week from Monday to Friday for consultations and health checks. If you're concerned about your pet’s health or need an annual check up please call us on (02) 6924 1182 to make an appointment or book online. If your pet has a medical emergency or needs immediate assistance you can reach our sister hospital Kooringal Veterinary Hospital in Wagga Wagga 24*7 on (02) 6922 5375.

What can I expect in a standard veterinary consultation?

Our standard consultation time is 15 minutes and includes a health check and discussion with our vet and veterinary nurse. However, if you'd like multiple pets seen to during your visit or have a few concerns that you'd like to discuss in-depth, please let our friendly client engagement officer know so that we can make the necessary arrangements for a longer appointment.

We're proud to offer free re-checks when your pet returns to see us for an issue. Please note there are some limits and considerations to this offer including the time between appointments.

During your consult our expert vets will give your pet a comprehensive physical examination to check their current health status and ensure they're getting the treatment and care they need. In some situations we might need to investigate a concern further with testing to determine the most accurate course of action. Our in-house pathology lab, digital imaging machines and other diagnostic equipment allows us to make a quick and accurate diagnosis of many conditions and diseases. If further investigation is required we are able to confer with or refer you to other veterinary specialists.

Specialist Referrals

When an animal develops an unusual or more complex illness or injury, there is often a need for specialised expertise and equipment to properly diagnose and treat the problem. If your pet has a problem that requires this level of expertise we can refer you to a specialist that has earned our trust and confidence in order to give your pet the optimal chance of recovery.

Australian registered veterinary specialists undergo a rigorous training and examination process to obtain their qualifications, and like human specialists are considered to be the epitome of knowledge in their field. We work closely alongside the specialists and together can offer optimal care for pets that require this service.

Specialist veterinarians are independent from our clinic and set their own fees. It's a good idea to ask them about costs when you call to make an appointment.

Our sense of responsibility doesn't end just because you've taken your pet to a specialist. If you find yourself faced with difficult decisions regarding the recommended treatment, please don't hesitate to call us. We'll be pleased to help you evaluate your options.

We’re happy to discuss and organise a specialist referral if required by your pet.
