I look after pets in the Northern Rivers- particularly Murwillumbah, Uki, Nimbin, Mullumbimby and surrounding regions. If you live further away (both near and far), I can always do a consultation via skype, and post you whatever holistic medicines your pet may need.
Remember, I am always at the end of the phone, and more than happy to answer any questions you have about keeping your pet well.
I am a small animal vet. Dogs and cats are the bulk of my practice, though I do see some small fluffies; rats, rabbits, guinea pigs and so on are all pets I can help you with. Snakes too, as long as they are non-venomous.
I don’t tend farm animals (cows, pigs, goats, llamas, alpacas etc).
I grew up mustering and competing on horses, and I do offer a limited equine service- only Whole Energy Body Balance Sessions, help mistreated/emotionally wounded horses and offer behavioural/training sessions. I do NOT do attend sick horses, do stitch ups, castrations, anaesthetics, or administer antibiotics or any pharmacy medicines to horses.
I offer a limited after hours service. Please call me – I will call back when I can. Mobile coverage can be a bit spotty where I live, and during the day I may be out of range and on the road. Sometimes I don’t get messages until the next morning. If you have a severe emergency (eg snake bite, tick paralysis, broken bones etc) contact a local veterinary hospital, or the emergency center on the gold coast immediately. If the problem is less urgent, ring me, and if I don’t get back to you in a timely fashion, please seek help elsewhere . If I attend your pet out of working hours, there will be an after hours fee in addition to my normal rates. If you have an emergency during my working hours, I will cancel and reschedule my routine calls to make sure your pet gets the attention needed ASAP.
I carry all the holistic and pharmacy medicines I need in my van, and can dispense them for your pet at the visit.
Many clients from my previous home visit practice in Townsville have told me that my rates are very reasonable. I keep my prices as affordable as I can, and I have a sliding scale of fees, with a discount for pensioners, single parents and anyone who may be in genuine financial difficulty. Please call me, tell me what the problem with your pet is, and then I can give you an estimate of what the cost may be, and see what I can do to help. I am more interested in looking after pets that need help, than in money.
The only pets I can safely desex in your home are male cats. All the rest will need to go to a veterinary hospital to be desexed.
