Puppies have a "critical socialisation period" between 4-18 weeks of age. Your puppy's experiences during this time will affect its behaviour later in life so do not miss out on this foundational period!

TESTIMONIALS

They have amazing service and care with my pups. They inform us very well every time we have an annual check up. Even though we live 30 mins away, we did not even think about transferring to another vet clinic. We only trust their services. Thank you for taking care of Whisky and Bailey!

Always welcomes my puppy with open arms and lots of love and cuddles! He actually likes going to the vet. Wonderful service and always happy to answer any questions we have! Can't recommend enough

Very caring and understanding, have always been more than happy to answer any questions I have and took wonderful care of a little stray kitty we found who we then were able to adopt through Vets at North Rocks

Thank you Vets at North Rocks for the care you gave our Emma. She was very sick at the beginning of last week and thankfully she is doing much better now. I always feel confident that she will be looked after well and get lots of love and cuddles too!
