About Us

Our promise is the best care for your pet.

Every pet will be cared for as if they were our own.

Dr James Thompson

Turramurra Vet Hospital

Your family pet will receive the best care in a  family owned, independent and multi award-winning hospital. You will receive advice – from the heart – about your pets from our enthusiastic vets and nurses who are real animal lovers. All our vets are Australian trained, committed to the Ku Ring Gai area and to their veterinary continuing education.

We’ll explain our professional opinion and recommendations, provide options when possible, and outline our estimated costs in caring for your pet. We’re always happy to hear what you would like for your pet, so that together we can develop the most suitable health plan. It will always ultimately be your choice regarding treatment options. Your pet should have a long and happy life and most importantly an excellent quality of life. That is our clear and honest goal. We perform veterinary house calls to the North Shore suburbs of Turramurra, Pymble, St Ives, Warrawee, Wahroonga, Gordon and Killara.
