At the Torrens Road Veterinary Clinic we are all here because we enjoy the work we do, we like the team we work with and are proud of the equipment, facilities and services we provide for you and your pet.
We enjoy seeing our clients, and especially enjoy seeing your pets happy and healthy. When you choose us for your pet's needs, you will be guaranteed the highest quality treatment, service and advice from our friendly team.
We put a lot of importance on continuing education for our vets and nurses alike. This ensures we always have the best knowledge to provide our patients with the highest standard of care.
The clinic was purpose built and completed in December 1998. Our aim was to build a vet clinic that addressed the needs of both our patients and our clients. For this reason our waiting area is quite spacious, is well lit and has a lot of glass - dogs love coming in and don't feel at all trapped.
Dogs also love our special non slip "Tarquet" floor, not the usual polished slippery surface that sends their legs going in all directions. To avoid slipping on the consult tables we have used a textured laminate and have found it much more feet friendly than the usual stainless steel surface.
The entire clinic has reverse cycle air conditioning so even the kennel area has year round comfort. Our cages are stainless steel for hygiene reasons but are individually heated and well padded.
Proof of their comfort and happiness during a stay with us is often seen when animals return for a recheck or stitch removal. They will usually dive in the front door, greet the staff for a quick pat and a liver treat and then try to make a bee line for the kennels.
We have a grassy enclosure that we call the 'puppy run', as it is most often used for Puppy Preschool sessions. It is also useful for you to let your dog have a bit of a frolic and sniff in, to guarantee vet visits are even more fun!
