Our MissionTo provide exceptional pet care, with compassion, sensitivity and understanding.
Brandon Park Veterinary Hospital has been providing Glen Waverley, Wheelers Hill and surrounding suburbs with quality veterinary services since 1970.
We have a compassionate team of six veterinary surgeons and twelve veterinary nurses who are deeply dedicated to the health and well-being of your pet. We have a wealth of experience with most of our team having worked together for over 10-15 years, along with newer members who bring their own special talents to our team. It certainly is an amazing team to be a part of.
We recognize that pets are an important part of the family and that choosing a vet is like deciding on a family doctor. It is our commitment to provide the highest standards in pet health care for the life of your pet in a caring, friendly and professional manner..
We can help with routine preventative care in the young and healthy pets; early detection and treatments of diseases as your pet ages; general medicine and surgery as well as more advanced surgical, medical and diagnostic services if he or she ever needs us.
Veterinarians and Vet Nurses are pet advocates, we are here to guide and educate pet owners on the special needs of their pets. Our difference is that we do so with an understanding of each pet owners unique circumstances and concerns..
Together, our common aim should be to ensure that your pet remains as happy and as healthy as possible, so you can enjoy more quality time together.
Thank you for taking the time to find out about our Veterinary practice and services we offer.
We love what we do and promise to treat your pet as we would our own.
