Expert Knowledge

From cats and dogs to exotic and avian pets. We write about them all. Check out our blog today to keep up to date with our current findings.

Meet the Team

The Sugarloaf Animal Hospital has been serving the Hunter region, and especially Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, for more than 20 years.

What We Do

The Sugarloaf Animal Hospital has been serving the people and animals of the Hunter region, and especially Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, for more than 20 years.

In that time the hospital team has always strived for excellence in veterinary health care for all species.

It is our mission to support and nurture the special bond between people and their pets. We make this happen by doing everything within our power to ensure the lives of animals are as long and full, and healthy and happy as possible.

We treat each and every pet as if it were our own and treat their owners with the same compassion we would expect if we were the client.


Surgery and Dentistry

We pride ourselves on our efficient procedures and cleanings as well as providing information and education on how you can keep your pet’s teeth clean.

Puppy Preschool

The arrival of a new puppy brings huge amounts of fun and excitement, but it can also raise some daunting and very important questions! The answers to many of these questions are to be found in the Sugarloaf Animal Hospital’s Puppy Preschool Classes

Free Vaccines for Life!

Once on the Free Vaccines 4 Life program, your pet receives vaccines for the REST OF ITS LIFE, free of charge, AS LONG AS that pet continues to have its prescribed health examinations (which incur a consultation fee) at Sugarloaf. There is a one-time subscription fee of $140 per pet.


Pet Insurance

When the time comes to make decisions about an animal’s health care none of us want to be constrained by financial concerns. The quality of health care, and what we can actually do for our companion animals has never been greater – we see that every day at the Sugarloaf.


We know from bitter personal experience the pain of a lost pet. Experience teaches us that the best way to get a lost pet home is to ensure it has a microchip

Exotic and Avian Pets

At Sugarloaf we practice the highest standards of veterinary medicine and surgery for all “domestic” pets, not just dogs and cats. We have an equal passion for the more unusual or exotic pets. Our vets have become leaders and mentors within the veterinary community in caring for Australia’s exotic creatures.
