Overview

Previously the Zillmere Veterinary Surgery team, our experienced team is now the Virginia Family Vet. It goes without saying, we could not achieve the amazing things we do without our caring and compassionate team.

Originally, we were the Zillmere Vet Surgery and for over 25 years we have been providing exceptional care for our wonderful patients and clients. Our commitment to high Standards of Care, compassion, and excellence in healthcare delivery saw our practice expand to the extent that our little building near the train station was bursting at the seams. Parking became a major challenge!

Thus began the search for a new home, and after several years, we found the perfect location in Virginia. A 12 month journey with council and contractors ensued and in March 2023 we saw our last patient in Zillmere. With great excitement (and some tears) we reopened in our beautiful, purpose-built facility as Virginia Family Vet.

Our facility has been designed to make visiting the vet as stress free as possible for both pets and people. We have a spacious reception area and lots of consult rooms so anxious pets can be quickly moved to a quiet area. There are cat exclusive consult rooms and hospital wards and a separate cat waiting area. We have two sterile surgery suites, advanced dentistry capabilities, in-house radiology and lab, and closely supervised hospitalisation runs and recovery areas.

Customer reviews

"A++ 10/10 Great vet!! We have been to multiple vets in the area trying to find one that we can trust and also has reasonable pricing. And we found it here at Virginia Family Vet. Not only is all the staff super friendly but their vets are extremely knowledgeable. I feel so safe knowing the service and advice our animals receive is nothing but top shelf! Thank You Virginia Family Vet. We look forward to many many years of service here."

"I chose this vet about a year ago because it's fear free certification. It has lived up to that and more! The vets are absolutely amazing, so caring and are always willing to try anything I suggest to make things less stressful for her. Today she had a procedure with them and they could not have done better. They loved and cared for her like she was their own and she woke up so smoothly and without any stress. I will continue to take the long drive out to them as they are without doubt, the best vet clinic I have ever known!!"

A wonderful vet clinic. Have been attending them for 9+ years since they were at Zillmere. The vets, nurses and customer relations team are all so beautiful and knowledgeable. Very grateful to have them looking after my pups, and for their kindness and compassion when we lost one of our babies.
