As pet parents, we take great joy in picking out the perfect collar and matching leash, the comfiest bed, and the cutest dishes we can find for our pets. Taking the time to choose your pet’s veterinarian is one of the most important things you can do for your pet.
Whether you just got a pet for the first time, have moved to a new area, or have decided to switch vet clinics, you must put sufficient time and research into selecting your pet’s veterinarian. The right vet will help to ensure your pet is kept healthy and happy all year long and will be able to help you understand how to care for your pet’s health as well.
Choosing a new vet for your animal can be stressful. There are so many things to consider. Will you like the person? Are the hospital hours in line with your availability? But beyond the day-to-day practicalities of choosing a vet, there are several certifications an individual vet can hold. Located in Bayside, Melbourne, and on the hunt for a vet? Look no further! To get you started on your vet hunt, we have compiled a list of top vets in Bayside, Melbourne.

Bayside Mobile Vet Melbourne
0488 061 444
We perform a full consultation and physical exam as well as:
- Wellness and Senior health checks
- Dental examinations
- Skin checks
- Lump investigations
- Ear examinations
- Medical consultations
- Sick pets
- Pathology – including blood tests

Bayside Mobile Vet was established in 2012 as a house-call Veterinary service to residents in the Docklands, Southbank, CBD, Port Phillip and Bayside areas of Melbourne.
We want to make it easier for pets and owners to access excellent Veterinary care. With over 20 years of experience between them, Natasha and Chris started Bayside Mobile Vet to address the stress surrounding a visit to the vet.
With a busy family, work and social calendars, many people find it very challenging to visit the vet. As well as time, there are often other constraints, including family, travel and physical ability.
We also eliminate stress for pets involved with car travel, being in unfamiliar surroundings and waiting in the veterinary clinic itself.
We feel proud to offer excellent veterinary care in the comfort of your home.
Bayside Animal Medical Centre
(03) 9592 4700
Bayside Animal Medical Centre is open 7 days a week, including some public holidays. We’re conveniently located on a quiet corner in Brighton, with ample parking right outside our front door. Our practice is bright, warm and inviting, and our waiting area is divided into a dog lounge and a cat lounge to reduce your pet’s (and you’re) stress.
So much more than just a veterinary hospital, our centre caters for the simplest of needs through to the most complicated life-saving procedures. With brand new state of the art facilities and experienced staff, you’re in great hands.
If you have any questions, our nurses can give you advice on a wide range of topics – you’re welcome to call us as often as you wish. Advice is always free of charge – we are very keen to help keep your family pets happy and healthy. We don’t just give the injections – we listen, and we care.
Some benefits of being part of our centre
- With both older and younger vets on the team, you get the combination of experience and new knowledge to give you the best possible service.
- Enjoy a longer consultation if you are a new client to give us a chance to get to know you and your pet.
- We have separate dog and cat lounges to reduce stress for both you and your pet.
- We can offer you better, quicker diagnoses with our high-tech equipment and facilities.
- We have an open-door policy – feel free to ask for a tour of the centre.
- We love our jobs and are always in a good mood.
Our services include:
Our consultations include a thorough and comprehensive medical examination. This is to ensure that we leave no health issue uncovered. We always check eyes, look at ears, take temperatures, examine the chest and abdomen thoroughly and check the skin and coat. We prefer to spend more time with you, not less.
Vaccinations and Microchipping
We use the best vaccines on the market to ensure that your dog or cat stays healthy, with strong and long-lasting immunity against viruses and bacteria that are known to cause illness. The new Nobivac vaccine allows your puppy to finish its vaccination course at 10 weeks of age and start socialising earlier. If your pet is lost, our Back Home microchips ensure that they are returned to you as soon as possible, regardless of where they’re found or which vet or shelter they’re taken to.
X-rays and Ultrasound
Sometimes we need to look deeper into your pet to help us diagnose a problem. Often, this involves taking x-rays of bones and joints or of the chest, abdomen or head. However, x-rays only show us a silhouette of the structures inside the body. Sometimes we need to use ultrasound to get a better idea of the size and structure of soft tissues and organs. This is all done in-house in a safe and secure environment.
Just like humans, pets can get intestinal and stomach ulcers, as well as foreign bodies, polyps and masses. Our endoscope allows us to see right inside the oesophagus, intestines and stomach in full colour.
If your pet has smelly breath, brown tooth discolouration or a poor appetite, it should have a full dental check. Poor dental health is a very common problem, particularly in pets over the age of three years. Apart from causing pain or discomfort in the mouth, it can lead to many other health issues such as chronic bacteraemia (blood poisoning), kidney disease, heart disease and tooth root abscesses. Dental disease may literally reduce the lifespan of your pet. If you are concerned that your pet may be suffering from dental disease, make an appointment with our nurses.
Whether your pet requires the simplest surgical procedure (for example, removing a small lump on the skin) or major surgery (for example, open abdominal or chest surgery, or bone and joint surgery), this can be done in our state-of-the-art operating theatre and procedures room. We are training to be able to offer the best available surgery for repair of cruciate ligament rupture, the tibial tuberosity advancement (TTA).
In-house Laboratory & Dispensary
We dispense any necessary medications from our in-house pharmacy and also perform cytology (looking at slides under the microscope) and urinalysis (examining the urine) in-house. If blood tests are required, we are able to take a sample immediately and send this off to the lab for same-day processing.
Food and Accessories
We have a wide range of dog and cat food available, including prescription diets. If you require a product that is not in stock, we will be happy to order it for you. We also carry treats, grooming and skin products. Give us a call or make an appointment with one of our nurses to discuss the best way to provide your pet with complete and balanced nutrition.
Community Vets Melbourne
03 9580 5111
Community Vets was born out of necessity following the closure, in April 2018, of a long-established welfare vet clinic.

Our veterinarians have many years of experience, which enables them to offer high-quality surgery, desexing, medical consultations and vaccinations at a reduced price. They are professional, competent and compassionate and supported by a dedicated team of nurses.
The team at Community Vets understand that animals are such a vital part of people’s well being and will ensure that everyone is able to care for their pets who give them such unconditional love. With this mission and this passion, Community Vets have opened our clinic in Braeside.

Hello and welcome to Elwood Vet
We’re a little bit different.
When we took over the practice in 2017, we aimed to create a different sort of practice.
One that didn’t just have capable, skilled vets with cool tools, but one that made you feel good when you walked through the door, where you could have open and honest discussions about your pet with people who listened to you and valued your opinion. And didn’t charge you for every little thing… the sort of practice we’d take our pets to if we weren’t vets.
We offer a comprehensive range of care for pets at every stage of life
And we work with you to find the best option for your pet and your situation.
The range of services we provide includes:

- palliative and end of life care
We also work with a range of specialists to offer you care outside Elwood Vet.
Although Deb spends a lot of time at the various skate parks of Melbourne, it’s not because she’s practising her ollies. We suspect that it’s not even because her three super cool boys Jake, Kye and Raph, are into skating. It’s all about carving out a few minutes to find a spot of sunshine and immerse herself in a good book.
Deb started waging war on waste long before Craig Reucassel. So much is her dedication to the cause that she once carried a large bag of cabbage offcuts on the train so she could put them in someone else’s worm farm. Not sure the other passengers were impressed by the fart-like wafting, but you’ve got to admire her spirit.
We also have Deb’s talented husband Jason (of Finch Design) to thank for our renovations.
The obligatory vet stuff
Deborah Clift graduated from Melbourne Uni vet school in 1994. She worked around Melbourne for a while then headed off overseas, eventually owning her own practice in Hong Kong.
Returning to Melbourne with a family in tow, Deb started working at the Southern Animal Emergency Centre (where she met Raquel). Enjoying the pace of emergency work, Deb ended up working at the Lort Smith Animal Hospital, where she still does some (crazy) shifts.
Deb is particularly handy with the endoscope and has retrieved more foreign bodies out of dogs than you can poke a stick insect at.

Port Melbourne Veterinary Clinic Bayside
03 9646 5300
Welcome to PORT MELBOURNE VETERINARY CLINIC & HOSPITAL, where the well being of your pets is our priority.
We care for dogs, cats, birds, other small pets and we also treat injured native animals on a compassionate basis.
Our friendly and professional staff are committed to providing quality services to our clients and their pets 7 days a week.
The clinic and hospital are purpose-built and fully equipped.
Port Melbourne Veterinary Clinic & Hospital was established in 1997.
Who We Are
Port Melbourne Veterinary Clinic and Hospital were established in 1997 on Bay street, two streets from the beach. The clinic is purpose-built and fully equipped for all types of surgeries.
We have four full-time veterinarians, two part-time veterinarians and 8 veterinary nurses and animal attendants. Our friendly staff are passionate about health and value your relationship with your pet. Your pet’s wellbeing is our number one priority.
We are open 7 days a week, including most public holidays.
Our vets have decades of experience in the veterinary field and are up to date with the latest knowledge as we value continuing education. We attend seminars and conferences on a regular basis.
We offer a pet export service with Dr Julie Paris and Dr Lewis Kirkham, who are accredited, an export veterinarian. If you are planning to travel overseas with your pet, give us a call to book an appointment.
We have in-house pathology for fast turn-around results but also use external laboratories.
We are close to multiple referral centres and work closely to do the best for your pets. If your pet needs a specialist’s option, we can get a specialist to come into our clinic for a diagnostic workup or send you to one of the specialist centres in Melbourne.
Southern Animal Health Bayside
Why Choose Us?
Our clinic’s philosophy has been born from a belief that modern marketing has gone too far and lost the actual best interests of our pets.
As a result, our group of like-minded veterinarians established Southern Animal Health in order to return to a more balanced and sensible approach to both preventative medicine and also the diagnosis and treatment of an unwell pet.
The other concerns that have evolved in recent times are the exorbitant costs of after-hours emergency centres and specialist centres. Many “general practices” continue to reduce their hours and services, instead referring to these centres.
Our clinic offers extended hours 7 days per week, along with highly skilled veterinarians whose main areas of interest are advanced medicine and surgery. This enables our patients to remain within the clinic they come to know and trust. Our future aim is to become one of Melbourne’s only general practices to actually offer 24-hour care within our own clinic for inpatients.
The final concern we have is the ever-increasing costs of general practice itself. With “modern marketing” draining many pet owners finances, often pet owners cannot afford insurance and hence make “financial-based” decisions when their pet actually suffers serious injury or illness. As such, our staff have encouraged all our clients to “give up” the excessive products recommended in routine pet health that we are unconvinced are beneficial, and instead use these savings to do something that really will help your pet one day: insure them!
We have shown thousands of pet owners how to get their pets insured, often just using the savings from products they were using but didn’t really need. It is now becoming commonplace for pet owners to have insurance, and as veterinarians, we are extremely happy when costs are not a factor when offering the best diagnostic and treatment options that are available these days to help your pet recover from a serious illness.
The following is a summary of why you should consider using our clinic to look after your pets:
- Open late 7 days per week (to help you avoid emergency centres!)
- Soon to offer a 24-hour care service for our clients. Doggy_drink
- We offer routine and advanced medical and surgical solutions, rarely requiring specialists, performing many procedures in the clinic that other clinics would refer to.
- Our Less is Healthier approach allows for long term healthier pets, also allowing for hundreds of dollars of savings per year by avoiding unnecessary product up-sizing! (refer to our Less is Healthier information on the home page).
- We only employ experienced veterinarians who all communicate with each other. For any complicated case, we discuss, as a team, the best way forward. Hence you get up to 10 opinions! Yet you stay in communication with the vet of your choice.
- At our clinic, you are always welcome to ask for the vet of your choice.
- At our clinic, we encourage our clients to call with any enquiries, and yes, you will get past the receptionist, who will not just try to book you in for a consult. You will get to talk to one of our veterinarians!
- You won’t just be satisfied with our service, and you will be appreciative! Our staff love their job and their interaction with our wonderful clients and their pets, and nothing gives us more pleasure than to help you when your pets need help!

WE’RE A BIT DIFFERENT
The story starts…
Once upon a time, four vets (Bec, Craig, Deborah and Raquel) who really liked and respected each other’s work decided to get together and create a different sort of veterinary practice.
The sort of practice that didn’t just have skilled vets, but one that made you feel good when you walked through the door, where you could have open and honest discussions about your pet with people who listened to you and valued your opinion, one that didn’t charge you for every little thing… the sort of practice we’d take our pets to if we weren’t vets.
In May 2017, the four vets bought Elwood and Albert Park Veterinary Clinics and there they found two other vets (Donald and Louise) and some lovely nurses who were keen to be part of that sort of practice too.
And that’s how the new Albert Park Vet and Elwood Vet began.
So, how are we different?
Most vet practices are modelled on other vet practices. The way they look and the way they run is generally similar – whether large or small, red or green, your experience is pretty much the same. And that’s fine. But we’re not interested in offering you more of the same – we’re sure we can do better than that.
Focus on good design
From our Elwood practice, you can see the direction we’re taking. There, we’ve looked for inspiration (and stolen ruthlessly) from outside the vet world to create a beautiful and functional place that we can do our best work in, and you’ll love to bring your pet to. Once Elwood is finished, we’ll start on Albert Park – the clean aesthetic will be the same, although it will have a distinct look.
Focus on quality
When putting together our team, we didn’t just want highly skilled people; we wanted people who would fit our continuous quality improvement culture.
From human healthcare, we’ve adopted the Institute of Medicine’s six dimensions of quality, and so all of us at Albert Park Vet always aim to provide care that is:
- safe: we avoid harms to patients from the care that is intended to help them
- effective: we provide services based on scientific knowledge to patients who could benefit from them and refrain from providing services to those who aren’t likely to benefit (we avoid under and overtreatment)
- pet and pet family centred: we provide care that is responsive to the individual needs of you and your pet and that respects your preferences and values
- timely: we aim to minimise waits and harmful delays in providing care
- efficient: we avoid waste, including waste of equipment, supplies, ideas and energy
- equitable: we provide care that does not vary in quality based on personal characteristics such as gender, ethnicity, geography or socioeconomic status.
Focus on good decisions
Our pets rely on us to make good decisions for them.
But when it comes to decisions about your pet’s health, there is often no single ‘best choice’. Instead, we typically have multiple options, each with potential benefits, harms, trade-offs and uncertainties.
Part of our job as vets are to provide you with useful and clear information that reflects:
- the best available evidence
- your pet’s circumstances
- your personal opinions, preferences, values and priorities
Together we can use this information to make choices.
This is the process of shared decision making. (Nerd note: the evidence from human studies shows that shared decision making leads to better outcomes – it’s not just being good people, it’s about getting good results!)
Focus on excellent value
We hate up-selling too. We’re not going to do that to you. Ever.
We believe that high-quality care should be affordable. We’ve gone through the old Albert Park price list and reduced the cost of many services, including consultation fees, vaccinations, spay and castration fees and dentals.
Why are vets so important?
Today’s veterinarians are the only doctors educated to protect the health of both animals and people. They work hard to address the health and welfare needs of every species of animal. Veterinarians also play critical roles in environmental protection, research, food safety, and public health.
Veterinarians are essential health professionals. They are people who have gone through the four walls of a higher institution to acquire practical and theoretical knowledge and training to be able to treat animals. But their contribution to society is more than just treating cats and dogs. Vets offer more than that.
So, how do veterinarians contribute to society?
Veterinarians are trained personnel that treat and ensure that animals are in good health. These animals range from pets and those in the wild, including zoos. And by protecting and ensuring the wellbeing of animals, vets are contributing immensely to society. The benefits of animals include food, clothing, research, education, companionship, and recreation. So, veterinarians help ensure public health, food safety, research, and environment protection.
Importance Of Veterinary Services
Veterinary care services are essential to each pet owner. Lack of correct care to your puppy or any other pet will pose a great danger to its health.
Veterinarians always recommend early vaccinations to all pets to protect them from disease caused by pests; help protect your pet from heartworm; give you the best advice on how to defend your pet from this dangerous infection that can cost the life of your pet.
Additionally, taking your pet to be checked by a vet is that you will be advised on the right kind of food, vaccine, and medication to use. Some people ignore this important fact due to their high cost and tend to assume their pets’ health. Remember, prevention is better than cure. Keeping your pet’s health in check is the best thing you can do with Veterinary services rather than waiting until it gets ill.
Several veterinary clinics offer treatments for dermatological care and allergy cure for pets. Therefore, it is important to find veterinary services you can trust. This will ensure your pets get the best treatment available when they need it. When it involves your pets’ health, you should always ensure that you look for the best veterinary care services around you.
Veterinary medicine, also called veterinary science, medical specialty concerned with the prevention, control, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases aealth of domestic animals’ healthd animals and preventing transmission of animal diseases to people. Veterinarians ensure a safe food supply for people by monitoring and maintaining the health of food-producing animals.
What Would Happen If We No Longer Have Veterinarians?
Most professionals do not get enough accolades from the people they claim to serve, and vets are one of them. We may not realise the importance of having veterinarians around until we require their services.
For the records, vets are more than helpers to dogs and cats. I know the first thing that comes to mind when our precious pets get sick is to visit a vet clinic. But here’s what you should know, vets play more critical roles in society than treating cats and dogs.
So what would happen if we no longer have vets?
- Pets will no longer enjoy the help they get when they fall sick or get injured. The pet owners would be affected emotionally and have to deal with an unhappy pet.
- Abused animals won’t have someone to stand in for them.
- Humans will not prevent, eliminate, or detect zoonotic diseases, which could wipe out the entire human race or a large population of people.
- Livestock farmers will no longer get the help they seek to ensure the wellbeing of their animals.
So, now you know the answer to the question, “how do veterinarians contribute to society?” The bottom line is vets are essential and play a crucial role in our environment. Besides treating and providing information regarding the management of pets, they also contribute immensely in ensuring public health, food safety, and the protection of our environment. So, veterinarians are important people and should have the respect they deserve.
