About Girraween Veterinary Hospital

Welcome to the Girraween Veterinary Hospital. We are conveniently located just off the Stuart Highway, down Girraween Road, not far from the Coolalinga, Howard Springs, Humpty Doo and Virginia and Palmerston Business Districts. Our veterinary hospital is set on more than two tropical and serene hectares; the relaxed atmosphere makes an ideal setting for a veterinary hospital. We are primarily a small animal practice catering to all breeds and types of dogs, cats and birds and include exotics such as reptiles, rabbits and turtles. Ample off road parking is available as well as wheel chair access.

The proprietor is local veterinarian Dr Laurelle Bates, who has been in the territory for more than 40 years and who opened the doors to the hospital in May 2010. With the support of the community the clinic has grown from a team of 3 to a team of 7 members.

With experience and knowledge, we strive to keep up to date on the latest developments in Veterinary medicine; our goal is to maintain exceptional standards. Your pet’s health is very important to us. Finding conditions before they become serious problems is the basis behind our recommendation for annual examinations/vaccinations. Early intervention when problems are detected is not only better for the long term health of your pet but can also be financially beneficial for you as the owner.
