Animal Clinic


The Lower South Coast SPCA Clinic provides excellent medical treatment for sick and injured animals. Many of these are animals brought to the SPCA by our Inspectors or by owners who are unable to afford the services of a private veterinarian.

Sadly, we are seeing an increase in the number of people qualifying for special SPCA Clinic rates, as pet owners are struggling to make ends meet. Often their animals are the only source of comfort in times of hardship. Our Clinic only assists people who cannot afford private veterinarians.

Our Clinic treats thousands of animals every year, and we rely on contributions from our loyal donors and corporate partners to subsidise veterinary care for pets of poorer owners.

Services Offered:

  • vaccinations,
  • spaying and neutering,
  • general consultations,
  • general surgery and procedures,
  • microchipping and
  • student training for Animal Welfare Assistants.

Opening Hours:

  • Week days -
    • 12:00 to 14:00
  • Saturdays -
    • Coming Soon!
NOTE: Our Clinic is closed to the Public on Weekends and Public Holidays.

In order to qualify for our Clinics’ services you will be required to produce proof of income.
