We are currently unclear if the veterinary industry is classified as a non-essential service, but we endeavor to try and keep you all up to date with changes if and when they happen.

We know that there will be some clients out there who will be worried about getting food and medications for their pets, if this is the case, we recommend ordering any essential supplies by 3pm tomorrow afternoon.
You can call the clinic from 8am tomorrow morning, or you can send an email to info@theanimaldoctors.com.au tonight. Please make sure you include your pets name, your full name, contact telephone number, which items you would like us to order and its quantity.
