Our Lara Veterinary 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.

Council Cat Desexing Month Special

As a partnership project, the City of Greater Geelong, local Veterinarians and GAWS animal shelter will be offering discounted cat de-sexing services as part of the July 'Cat Desexing Month' at the following rates;

Females: $125 - desexed, microchipped, council registration, flea & worm treatment and a bag of Royal Canin premium cat food.

Males: $89 - desexed, microchipped, council registration, flea & worm treatment and a bag of Royal Canin premium cat food.

It’s an unfortunate fact that many cats are euthanized every year that don’t need to be, many of these are kittens born out of unwanted pregnancies. This is not only an unfortunate animal welfare outcome but a significant financial burden to the community and we now seek your assistance in helping us change this trend.

You can do this in a number of ways;

  • By having your cat/s desexed and microchipped.
  • Contacting council regarding stray cats that could be contained desexed and re-homed.
  • Helping us to reduce the number of unwanted kittens being born.

Councils Domestic Animal Management Plan require that all newly registered cats are desexed at the time of registration and all existing registered cats be desexed by the end of 2017 unless you are a registered breeder or a member of an applicable organization.

A Fact! A pair of entire cats can lead to the birth of up to 132 cats over a four year period. So we encourage you to take the opportunity in making a difference by having your cat desexed.
