Our Philosophy

 

At Southern Animal Hospitals we aim to provide the highest standard of care for your pet so that you may come to expect and receive the best in everything we do.

 

We strive for professionalism and pride in veterinary science through training and development and most importantly enjoying what we do.  As a team we participate in continuing education together every month, and throughout the year some of us travel interstate and overseas to ensure we are at the front of advances in veterinary care.  As talented individuals we participate in education both as students and teachers, and together we support one another in our shared commitment to excellence.

 

We aim to grow and reinvest to provide more comprehensive treatment capabilities, extended hours and ranges of services.  We are currently expanding our laparoscopic surgery techniques, continuing cardiac ultrasound training, adding new orthopaedic procedures, chemotherapy treatment and performing high levels of dental imaging and surgery.  We aim to meet your every need whilst maintaining our personal service, listening and realising every patient is individual and unique.

 

We believe that we have to actively look after our environment and our community.  All of our clinics have extensive solar panels installed, we recycle everything we can and we take every opportunity to use sustainable products.  We raise money for Variety - The Children's Charity, Cancer Council - Relay for Life, local sporting clubs, overseas orphanages and animal charities.

 

When it comes to patient care some of our most treasured patients are those who no one else will look after.  Our native wildlife is one of the things that makes Australia great and we want to ensure their future is secure.  We take in all wildlife at each of our clinics and we give them the best chance to be returned to the wild, the demand for this work is credible and we have helped open the Adelaide Koala and Wildlife Hospital so we can make a difference.

 

We provide all levels of care for your part from Vaccination and Consultation through to Surgery, Emergency & Intensive Care and extended Hospital stays.  We know it is hard when your pet spends time away from you, but knowing that we treat every pet as if they are our own should put your mind at ease.
