Mitcham Pet Hospital

To all of our valued clients now and over the years.

It is with deep sadness and reluctance that we have to now temporarily close the doors of Mitcham Pet Hospital. It has been an honour and a privilege to serve the community for the past 39 years.

Due to a massive shortage of veterinarians in Victoria and across the nation, we have been unable to secure veterinarians to work in the practice and keep our services open. This problem has been apparent for several years and is getting worse. Practices across the state are desperately seeking veterinarians. We have tried to hang on for as long as possible not wanting to disappoint you, our clients. We cannot offer veterinary care without veterinarians; so, we have had to take this extreme measure. We do not do this lightly.

It has been a pleasure serving the community and meeting and helping so many nice people and their pets. Thank you for your patronage and support over the years. We wish you all well. Hopefully our doors can reopen in the near future.

We know many of you will want and need to have the medical histories of your pets. Please email us with your request and your email address. We will then expedite your request. Our email is happypets@mitchamvet.com.au
