Macquarie Fields Vet :: About Us

It is helpful for you to know what to expect from a visit to our Veterinary practice.

Macaquarie Fields Veterinary Clinic is essentially a "small animal" practice. We welcome dogs, cats, ferrets, rabbits, guinea pigs and rodents. We generally do not deal with birds or reptiles. In addition, we do not attend to farm animals. Please call us if you require contact details for Veterinarians who deal with the species we do not cater for.

Fees

Yes, we are a business and as such need to charge fees to "keep the doors open" and maintain our standards of care. The standard consultation fee is $65.00, and this is the minimum you can expect to pay for a visit. The exception to this is if your pet is returning for a recheck or the pet is in a group of other animals from the same household. In these cases, discounted consultations will apply. A $10 discount is available to genuine, card carying pensioners.

Please feel free to discuss fees and charges with any of our staff. At all times, we are happy to provide you with an estimate of treatments costs. Please note, that it is often difficult to do this over the phone, even if we have seen your pet before. So, detailed estimates will usually require a visit.

Leads & Cages

It is an absolute requirement that dogs brought into the hospital are effectively restrained with a lead and collar, and that cats are in a cage. The reasons for this are common sense. One hates to imagine the effect of having an angry Rottweiler and an even angrier cat in the same room, at the same time, unrestrained.

Accounts

We unfortunately do not "do accounts", nor do we "bulk bill". As much as we would like the federal government to subsidise pet health care, it obviously is never going to happen. However, we do have full eftpos facilities and accept all major credit cards.

Surgery

Macquarie Fields Veterninary Hospital is licensed to carry out major surgical procedures. In line with this, a consent form will need to be signed by the owner of a pet being admitted for surgery. As a general rule, we require that animals are fasted from the evening meal the day before the surgery, until the day after the surgery. This does not apply to Rabbits and Ferrets.

Appointments

Macquarie Fields Vet

We do ask that if you wish to have a consultation that you phone and make an appointment. This courtesy ensures that one of our vets will be available to see you and your pet at a time of your convenience.

You are welcome to visit any time during our opening hours if you wish to make a counter purchase eg. food or flea treatment.

After Hours
