Our Lara Clinic was opened in 1983 to cater for the ever expanding population of Lara and the surrounding districts. The Lara clinic provides a full range of services to our clients and their animals, with extended hours in the evenings for those owners working in Melbourne and travelling home to Lara. We aim to make your pet feel at ease in our Clinic with a caring and gentle approach to our treatments and consultations.
With our modern computer system, all details of your animals histories are available at the touch of a button to both clinics, which are linked "on line."
Take a moment to meet our team and their own pets. We look forward to seeing you and your pet again at your next scheduled visit.

August is pet dental month
Dental disease is one of the most frequently diagnosed health problems amongst our pets. The most common cause of dental disease is the accumulation of tartar on the teeth, which builds up over time, attracting bacteria and allowing decaying food to adhere to the tooths surface.
Tartar can be easily identified by its light to dark brown colour, and is initially seen at the edge of the gum, especially on the larger back teeth - where tartar is severe, it can cover the whole tooth.
If your pet is showing any of the following signs, you should consider bringing your pet to us for a dental check:
Recently developed smelly breath
Seeming to be less interested in their food
Has difficulty chewing or is dropping food
Is pawing or rubbing at their face
Has developed a swelling below one of the eyes
During the month of August, we are offering FREE* dental checks to all dogs and cats.
* Conditions apply: this is a free dental check only. If there are any other issues that you need to discuss with the veterinarian, a full consultation fee will apply.
