Great advise and support

I could not have asked for more from the Cannon & Ball Team. They were absolutely wonderful in so many ways. I highly recommend them for their professional and diligent knowledge and expertise, and also love and care that they show to their patients. Their advice, wisdom and support was invaluable.

Amazing Staff

Amazing staff. I recently rushed into the rooms at 1:30 am with my cat Bambi and they took such good care of her. Kim was amazing to deal with as was Jessica. Thank you sooo much! We've definitely found our new vet!!

Compassionate & Caring

2 years ago
Recently we had to unfortunately put our beloved family dog to rest. A huge thank you to Gail who came to our home to make sure our dog Ruby was as comfortable as possible. It was an extremely hard time for our family but Gail, and the staff behind the scenes who organised the cremation, were all so compassionate. empathetic and caring towards Ruby and our family. We thank you so much for caring.

Best vet surgery around

3 years ago
Cannon & Ball Vet Surgeon has been great since I was a student back in the 90's. For any treatment with my chooks (or probably any bird) I believe they are fantastic.

Passion for animals

3 years ago
One of my cats passed away last year while I was overseas. This vet's surgery were amazing and held the body for for a week for free and sent us a beautiful card saying sorry she passed. I took my other cat there for an infection he had picked up and they were so kind and let me visit everyday and handled him very well! Due to a major stroke of my older cat, we had to put him down. These guys came to the house and gave him the needle and he passed away peacefully in my arms. I can't thank this vet enough for how kind their staff are and their genuine passion for animals!

care and consideration

4 years ago
Forget Dr Chris Brown. I will take Dr Peter for us anyway. I got such a shock to have my little dog very sick. The care and consideration for him was wonderful.I very much appreciate Peter and the staff for taking such good care of Ted. In a time of nervousness and stress they definitely didn't give me anything extra to worry about

I have to make a comment on the lovely receptionist Chantelle who is friendly, helpful and will even share her Easter Eggs. Thanks Chantelle, you are a breath of fresh air.
