Our History


 Balcatta Veterinary Hospital first opened its doors to the pet owners of Perth in April 1974. We soon  established ourselves as a provider of quality veterinary care and grew rapidly in popularity as a result.

 By the late 1980’s Vet24 Balcatta became so busy, that we opened 24 hours a day. This enabled us to give the best possible care to all of our critical  patients. In the early 1990’s, we established our referral service. This referral service allows other vet clinics to refer patients to us for specialist or emergency care, anytime of the day or night.

 To this day, Vet24 Balcatta still remains the only private 24 hour full-service veterinary hospital in Perth. We also accept  emergency referrals, from a large number of veterinary clinics from all over the metropolitan and country areas.


What’s New at Vet24?

  • Our Facility
    Balcatta Vet has recently completed extensive renovations to expand our hospital. This has enabled us to cater for our increased critical care and emergency case load, as well as our normal general practice clients.

    With much excitement in early 2009 we opened our first stage of renovations, which included a spacious new modern reception with several waiting areas and four consulting rooms. Our sleek new renovations were welcomed warmly by clients, patients and staff alike.

    We have now completed stage two of the renovations. This includes a state-of-the-art hospital with a new critical care unit, a new radiology and ultrasound wing. Also extended treatment rooms with a large numbers of cages, two new surgery suites and owner visiting rooms have been added.

  • Our Staff's Passion for Service
    From its early beginnings as a small three-vet practice, Balcatta Veterinary Hospital has grown to one of the largest and best equipped veterinary hospitals in WA.

    Consequently we now employ 66 staff members including 27 veterinarians and 21 registered veterinary nurses. We continue to pride ourselves on constantly improving our facilities, equipment and most importantly – the skill and knowledge of our staff members. The result is an outstanding veterinary hospital with an impressive record of quality veterinary care and compassionate service.
