At Sugarloaf Animal Hospital, we have been providing the best in animal healthcare for the pets of West Wallsend, Holmesville, Barnsley, Edgeworth, Glendale, and Minmi – basically the entire region of Newcastle, the Hunter and Lake Macquarie – for more than 25 years.
It is our mission to support and nurture the special bond between people and their pets. We look after each and every pet as if it were our own and treat their owners with the same compassion we would expect if we were the client. We understand how stressful a visit to the vet can be, not just for the animal, but also the owner.
Sugarloaf vets are experienced in looking after small animals like cats and dogs, but also our more exotic friends like rabbits and reptiles, with a special interest in all things avian. Our vets have become leaders and mentors within the veterinary community with regard to caring for Australia’s exotic creatures.
This cache of experience is backed up by Sugarloaf’s investment in the specific medical hardware required for treatment and care of exotic pets, even including a small-animal specific ventilator to facilitate surgical procedures.
We are a Gold Standard “cat-friendly clinic” that has incorporated a series of protocols and resources to reduce things that may stress a cat’s uniquely feline nature. Don’t worry, dogs also get special treatment as we have created a safe environment for all pets under our care, whether for a brief visit or a longer stay, which as an animal hospital, we can arrange if necessary.
Whether it is the more basic requirements like regular health check-ups and dental exams, or more complex diagnosis that may lead to surgical treatment, our team is always ready to help. We also offer a full range of non-medical support for your pets, including micro-chipping, puppy pre-school, pet insurance and others.
At Sugarloaf, we put an emphasis on preventative medicine to ensure that whenever possible, more serious risks do not occur. Regular check-ups and follow-up calls keep our team connected to their patients to provide a continuity of care of the highest standard.
We want to do everything within our power to ensure the lives of animals are as long and full, and healthy and happy as possible.
The recent Coronavirus outbreak has made us all realise the importance not only of our community, but of the special place our pets have in our lives. At Sugarloaf, our team is committed to being at the centre of that community to provide for all of your pet’s needs.
While Sugarloaf has put new procedures in place to protect everyone’s health and safety – and they may be required for some time – rest assured the quality of care for your pets has not been reduced in any way. Due to the dedication of our team, Sugarloaf Animal Hospital remains open to customers and continues to look after the pets of Newcastle and beyond to the best of our ability.
