Maitland, Hunter Region NSW
As always I had a great experience at Greencross Vets Springvale. Matthew gave Archie a thorough examination and took the time to answer all of my questions. Some vet clinics try to rush you through as quickly as possible but I've never experienced this at Greencross Vets. Many thanks!
Springvale, Melbourne VIC
We have been clients of the Jindalee Greencross vets for over 5 years and appreciate how the staff are always friendly and helpful. I appreciate the attention our girls vets Josh and Sarah give to our dogs and the time they take to explain any procedures. Our babies are always greeted with affection even when just visiting to have their nails trimmed. The service is great and we have recommended Greencross services to friends and family.
Jindalee, Brisbane QLD
I couldn't fault the staff at Greencross vets Stud Park. They are always friendly and polite and I find the vets very attentive and well informed and able to communicate issues in an easy to understand manner. They are also extremely loving to our dog. I would not think of taking my dog to any other vet.
Stud Park, Melbourne VIC
Brookvale is an amazing clinic. We have always been treated fairly and respectfully. It is my belief that the staff are well educated in their respective fields. They will always make me as owner feel that my pets are the most important and nothing else matters at the time of consultation/appointment. Thank you for your amazing efforts!
The staff at Greencross Vets Calwell are always very friendly and provide great service it's clear that the staff are animal lovers which always makes our dog excited for a trip to the vets.
LOVE the team at Greencross. Always very friendly and welcoming and never make me feel rushed. I recommend them regularly to new defence families moving into the area.
Deeregun, Townsville QLD
I have been attending this vet for many years. It is now a Greencross Vet. The staff have always been friendly helpful and polite. The reception staff are very helpful and obviously love animals. The professional staff have equally been great the vets and the nurses and very knowledgeable. We have taken a number of animals over the years and the staff have always been good. The pets have had a variety of long term issues and they have managed each situation very well. They have also managed well when the time has come for the pets to be put to sleep. The dogs have also boarded there and it in good to know when you are away that the animals are being well looked after.
My special girl loves going to visit the girls at green cross vets. She actually gets excited to see the team who always welcome her with a smile and cuddles and my dog knows where to find the jar of treats. Our vet is amazing my dog wouldn't want to go anywhere else she has a long history of medical issues and Chris our vet is someone I trust she understands she is amazing. The team always call after a visit to check up and the extra service keeps me coming back. I take all my family members (pets) here even if I moved I would continue to go here. I just wish I could afford the program for all my pets if I had the money I would invest in it for my other cats and dogs and I would recommend this service to everyone it's great value for money. I'm so lucky to have such a great vet so close by and who always makes time to see me no matter how busy they are the team has a genuine love and passion for animals and they are a great team.
