Small Animals

At Coomara we are committed to providing a high quality personalised veterinary service, from your pet’s first steps to their last.

Preventative Healthcare

We want to make preventative healthcare easy and affordable.  We provide a range of services and clinics aiming to keep your companion healthy, including:

  • Coomara Care healthcare plan
  • First Steps puppy and kitten packages
  • Nurse clinics – e.g. juvenile, super senior, and dental checks

Coomara’s Consultation Promise

At every consultation we will perform a “head to toe” examination of your pet.  And we will keep caring for your pet beyond their first visit…in most cases you will be asked to return for a subsequent consultation.  We believe it is vital to ensure that our patient is better before discharging them from our care.  These consultations are charged for.  You will receive another thorough examination – we will ensure the original condition has resolved, and check for any other issues.  This is also an opportunity for your to discuss any other concerns you may have, and your pet’s long term care.


Over the years the practice has undergone a number of extensions and modernisations, allowing us to provide the best facilities for your pets - including separate dog and cat wards.

 We have facilities for Digital Xray, ultrasound scanning, dental suite, in house lab testing, Class IV laser therapy, isolation for infectious cases and a dedicated operating theatre available 24/7.

Out of Hours Emergencies

We cover our own out of hours service - your animal will always be seen by one of Coomara's vets out of hours.  Unless in exceptional circumstances you will not have to travel to a practice further away or in an unfamiliar location.

Consultations taken outside normal working hours are charged higher than those during the daytime, making allowance for the additional costs that employing vets and nurses for antisocial hours.  This additional fee applies between 7pm - 8am.

Hospitalised patients are not monitored continuously unless their clinical condition requires it.

Mobile Homecare Service

We offer home visits (with a nurse) to examine your animal.  A fee is charged according to your distance from the practice, and normal consultation fee applies.


Fees are carefully constructed on the basis of the skill, expertise, and time required, and of course the cost of equipment used.  Fees also make allowance for the general running costs of running the veterinary practice.  We operate a PAYMENT AT TIME POLICY and accept all major credit cards, BACs and cash.  We strongly advise that our clients take out insurance for their pets to help cover unexpected bills.  We can provide 5 weeks free insurance with Vetsure for pets less than 8 years old. 

Please see our Charges page for more information about our fees.
