TUGGERAH VETERINARY CLINIC
Helping animals live longer, healthier, happier lives since 1999
A big part of our local community
Tuggerah Veterinary Clinic has been caring for dogs, cats, birds, rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets and other small pets since 1999. Our trusted team have helped thousands of animals to thrive through our high-quality, yet affordable services. We pride ourselves on providing sound advice and devising treatment plans in consultation with you – because we know pets are more than pets, they’re family.
Small Companion Animals
From puppies and kittens to senior dogs and cats, you’ll find the services your pet needs for a lifetime of good health and happiness.
We provide veterinary care to a range of exotic and pocket pets, including rabbits, guinea pigs, ferrets, rats and mice.
Whether your feathered friend is a native or an exotic species, they’re in knowledgeable hands with our resident bird expert.
Tuggerah Veterinary Clinic began in 1999 with a simple goal: to deliver superior veterinary care to the pets of the Central Coast.
We provide professional advice and personalised treatment plans in consultation with pet owners.
Preventative Health Care
Keep your pet on track with annual wellness exams to assess your animal’s health, take care of vaccinations and parasite prevention and discuss behavioural or nutritional changes or concerns.
Our goal is to help your animal live the longest, best life possible. We will develop a personalised vaccination protocol according to your animal’s needs and risk factors.
An annual injection for the treatment of Heartworm can protect your dog, cat or ferret from a potentially fatal disease, whilst intestinal worm prevention is not only important to a pet’s health, but for the health of your family as well.
Your animal’s dental health is one of the most important parts of their overall health and well-being. Early stages of disease are reversible with early detection and professional care.
We offer a range of diagnostic services including radiology, ultrasonography, and onsite pathology. We have advanced digital x-ray technology and high-quality medical equipment so that you are armed with the knowledge and know-how to make the best decisions for your animal.
Typically, pets are desexed between four and six months, but this can occur at any age beyond that. There are many benefits such as unwanted litters, decreasing aggression, and prevention of cancer and prostate disease in males.
We perform a thorough examination and potentially further tests to diagnose lumps if a lump is affecting an animal’s health, mobility, or well being. Your vet will then discuss the plan for the lump removal with you.
Our skilled veterinarians can perform the vast majority of soft tissue procedures such as large mass removals, caesareans, biopsies, wound stitches, removal of foreign bodies and more.
Pets are vulnerable to gum disease and problems with their teeth. We offer an extensive range of dental treatments from the elective to the unavoidable.
Orthopaedic surgery is usually required due to an injury or from a degenerative condition. We can assist with diagnoses and repairs to your dog’s bones and joints such as hip and elbow dysplasia, fractures, joint fusions and dislocations.
Animals can be affected by a variety of eye issues and diseases. We provide a comprehensive eye exam, discuss your options and support you in deciding on the best treatment for your animal.
Microchipping is compulsory by law for all pets and the best way to ensure that your pet is returned home if they go astray. If your pet isn’t already microchipped, please make an appointment to have one inserted.
Animals experience stress, anxiety, and other behavioural disorders just like humans. We can help you assess, diagnose and treat behavioural issues, and prescribe medication if needed.
Our staff can provide nutritional advice for pets of any age – from puppies and kittens right through to seniors. We can discuss any health, diet, or weight fluctuations during their examination and help you plan a diet to suit their age and lifestyle.
We offer a full range of grooming services including washing, clipping, brushing, and nail clipping (which is essential for elderly and indoor pets).
Our pet-passionate and highly-skilled team are here to provide your furry or feathered friend with the best of care.

Great vet and nurses. They treat the patient and owner with a lot of care and respect. Also reasonably priced and very knowledgeable. Big thank you to the team!
Just fabulous. Our entire extended family take our fur babies to Vicki, Lisa and the team, and we wouldn't go anywhere else.
