About Us

The North Shore Veterinary Hospital was the first veterinary hospital established in Sydney north of the harbour in 1935. NSVH has continued to grow over the last 75 years and prides itself on providing the highest quality of veterinary care available for you and your pets.

They moved to their new state-of-the-art, purpose-built hospital in 2001 and continue to offer friendly and caring professional veterinary service of the highest standard establishing itself as leader in the veterinary field.

They are open 24 hours a day with our highly skilled team of veterinarians and nurses available for consultation or advice. Off street parking is available with lift access to the second floor.

In addition to the general veterinary practice, the hospital is home to the lower North Shore��_s first veterinary specialist centre, North Shore Veterinary Specialist Centre, which operates independently of the general practice.
