We offer longer consults than most so that we can spend sufficient time to provide you with a full diagnosis for your pet, while also providing you with detailed information as to the necessary course of action and the reason for it. We strive to ensure the experience for both client and pet is as smooth as possible, with our low stress handling techniques, to provide a gold standard of care for every animal at all times. All of our vets and nurses are pet lovers and pet owners, and we treat your animal as if it were our own.
As a small-animal practice, in addition to our love for cats and dogs, we have an equal passion for the more unusual or exotic pets, especially Avian. Hence, our team have become leaders and mentors within the veterinary community with regard to caring for Australia’s more exotic creatures. We also have helped hundreds of different wildlife over the years pro-bono.
Meet Our Team Members
Practice Manager and owner Kate Simpson signed up Sugarloaf Animal Hospital to Energy Hunter in 2013, with a view to:
- Gain a better understanding of energy consumption patterns to identify energy saving opportunities and reduce power usage.
- Determine the merits of various energy efficiency programmes and incorporate the best ideas.
- Working with the Energy Hunter team, Kate succeeded in reducing energy consumption through educating her team to create beneficial behavioural change. Simple things like placing a sign next to the light switch that asks: “Do you need me on?” Ensuring high-energy equipment is turned off when not in use.
