Welcome to one of Australia’s leading veterinary hospitals

U-Vet Werribee Animal Hospital - University of Melbourne is one of Australia’s leading veterinary hospital facilities, based in Werribee.

We provide veterinary care to the community via our general practice (primary and preventative care), a suite of specialist referral services, 24 hour emergency and critical care services, and specialist referral equine services.

Emergency and critical care

+61 3 9731 2000
24 hours, 365 days per year

Dedicated and highly qualified staff

Our team of caring and highly-qualified veterinary staff treat over 23,000 animals each year supported by dedicated veterinary nurses, specialist technicians and administrative staff. We employ over 40 registered veterinarians from interns to veterinary specialists.

Total animal care

As well as our general practice, we provide access to specialist veterinary services in surgery, medicine, anaesthesia, medical imaging, emergency and critical care, neurology, clinical pathology, dermatology, cardiology and equine management.

Emergency department, open all hours

Our emergency and critical care department is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is supported by contemporary diagnostic capabilities and on-site pathology laboratories, which enable us to promptly diagnose and manage complex, involved and unusual cases. 

Teaching the veterinarians of tomorrow

Importantly, we are also a teaching hospital. We are committed to educating the veterinarians of today and tomorrow and our clinical teaching program is conducted under the close supervision of the treating veterinarian. Our students are an important part of our practice and provide that extra attention and TLC that your pet will love when they visit our practice. We thank you for allowing us to involve veterinary students in the care of your pet.

Friends of the Werribee Animal Hospital

The Hospital plays a crucial role in the lives of the thousands of animals that we treat each year, as well as the thousands of animals treated elsewhere by talented veterinarians trained by us in the veterinary hospital.

Our aim is to continue to provide education in veterinary science that is second to none, to conduct innovative and pertinent research into the diseases of animals and humans, and to exchange knowledge with society, including the veterinary profession, pet owners and the general public.

To do this we need the best equipment, the most up-to-date facilities and the most experienced staff.

This all costs money and so we have developed the Friends of the U-Vet Werribee Animal Hospital program to provide a way for interested people to support our work in a meaningful and practical way.
