Veterinarians


The following veterinarians are not necessarily vegetarian, but they have been recommended as kind, compassionate and caring by visitors to this website.
Caulfield South
Dr On Ben-David
Caulfield South Veterinary Clinic
463 Hawthorn Road Caulfield South VIC 3162, ph: 03 9528 4755
Dr Ben-David treated Little Girl, our ex-battery rescued hen and was extremely caring in his attitude. And the clinic has always been kind and understanding with my dog Goodie, and also allowed me to pay the bills off slowly because I couldn’t afford them all at once.
Hawthorn
Dr Carol Webb
Burwood Road Cat Clinic
33 Burwood Road, Hawthorn VIC 3122, ph: 03 9819 1468
My most wonderful vegetarian vet (who has a vegan daughter) only does cats and she is an absolute saint. She has been supportive of us bringing up our cats vegan and she is also the President of the Cat Protection Society. She is also one of the cheapest vets in Melbourne and her heart is completely in it, she’s not doing it for money – what a refreshing change, I don’t know what I’d do if she wasn’t practising anymore.
Lower Plenty
Avinder Pasricha
Lower Plenty Veterinary Clinic
107 Main Road, Lower Plenty VIC 3093, ph: 03 9434 5699
I don’t know whether he is vegetarian, but Avinder Pasricha at the Lower Plenty Veterinary Clinic has taken my cat from acute renal failure in May 2006, when the traditional vet said take him home and enjoy the remaining days with him… (I will come to the house and euthanize him when you are ready), to his situation today in April 2007 where his appetite is voracious, he is putting on weight, specific gravity of 1.30, creatinine down to 400, urea hovering in the 30s. He still requires a special renal diet and constant homeopathic remedies, but to see him living and loving an otherwise normal life is worth all the cost and effort.
Northcote
Dr Alan Sultan
Northcote Plaza Veterinary Clinic
43A Dennis Street, Northcote VIC 3070, ph: 03 9489 3322
For a more traditional vet, Dr Sultan is very good. He also does nutritional medicine, acupuncture and Chinese medicine. I use him for more normal veterinary needs as well for my cats. The clinic is also quite ethical and even has a Ban Battery Cages notice up and have Rescue Remedy in the waiting room which you are free to use to help calm the animal while you wait.
North Melbourne
The Lort Smith Animal Hospital
24 Villiers Street, North Melbourne VIC 3051, ph: 03 9328 3021
– I can’t be sure how many, if any, of the vets at The Lort Smith Animal Hospital
are vegetarians, but I can certainly recommend them. Their animal welfare
and beliefs in relation to the social benefits of animals in society are
admirable.
They also offer payment plans for people not able to pay upfront – very helpful
if your pet needs an expensive operation. I have been going to them for many
years and have always been happy with the service they provide.
– Kirsten Nicholas is a vet at Lort Smith and I think she is vegan.
Thornbury
Dr Margaret O’Riordan
160 Collins Street, Thornbury VIC 3071, ph: 03 9480 1823
– Dr O’Riordan is a homoeopathic vet. She is a lovely lady and doesn’t use any
drugs, though she is a qualified vet. She uses Bach flower remedies,
homoeopathy, acupuncture and nutritional medicine. She also has her
practice at home and only sees one animal at a time, as she believes it’s
stressful for them to be around other animals in the waiting room. I use her
and she is great!
– Dr O’Riordan is a vegetarian and is also trained in acupuncture, western
herbs, Bach Flower Essences, and Bowen Therapy.
