About Salamander Bay Veterinary Clinic

Salamander Bay Veterinary Clinic is centrally located at Salamander Bay, Port Stephens. We provide medical and surgical care for dogs and cats, as well as treating other animals such as birds, guinea pigs, reptiles and wildlife and, most importantly, we are open 7 days, with 24 hour emergency service available (only for existing clients). We have a strong focus on preventive health care and offer services in medicine, surgery and diagnostics, behavior, as well as ancillary services such as grooming, nutrition and food supplies, pet accessories, puppy pre school and dog obedience training. Salamander Bay Veterinary Clinic has been providing quality veterinary care to the Port Stephens area for over 20 years from its location adjacent to the Salamander Shopping Centre on Salamander Way. Mark Dowden and his dedicated staff aim to achieve the best possible outcome for our clients and their pets for all their health needs. A full range of medical and surgical services is available, including endscopy, ultrasound, radiology, soft tissue and orthopaedic surgery. We are also more than happy to refer cases to a range veterinary specialists where this is needed. Although most of the animals we treat are cats and dogs, we also are happy to see a wide range of other companion animals such as birds, rabbits, ferrets, fish, mice, rats and guinea pigs. The practice has always provided free treatment for injured wild animals as a community service.

Best vets in Port Stephens!

I just had a horrible experience with the person that answered the phone this morning. My dog, which we rescue hasn't been eating or drinking properly since sunday and as i'm in Sydney, i took to a vet here and the procesess to be done is very expensive so i was quoting to have done back home, as we are coming back home tomorrow to Port Stephens. The lady keep asking who was my local vet and we dont have one, since we only adopted Jerry 3 months ago and we only had to take him to the vet once for vaccines. So, she implied i should just proceed with treatment in Sydney, but i told her we couldn't as we are coming back home, we only here in sydney for the week. And then, she said it would cost $400.00 to walk in for a vet to see Jerry and have a xray, and could be a lot more, but the vet wouldn't do just the scan without seeing the dog first, which i understand and i said it was fine to pay another consultation back home. I felt she didn't' want to me to bring the dog at all

You have never been to our clinic, this is the first contact that we have had with you, which was this morning not 14 hours ago as shown. Not sure how you can review us before you have had any contact with our clinic. We will be reporting this review and taking any other action that is appropriate.
