Our Story

About Us

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

Vet Stars veterinary clinic is essentially a “small animal” practice. We welcome dogs, cats, and rabbits. 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.
