It’s about time that we celebrate our good bois and girls who come through the clinic! We are super happy to announce that every month, we award the title “Pet Of The Month” to one lucky winner!
How do we make such a difficult decision you may ask? Well… our vets nominate their favourite angels throughout the month and place their names in a jar. At the start of every month, we then let chance take over and we draw out a name. Winners are announced on our Facebook page. (Don’t forget to follow us!)

What do we look for? We think all pets are cute, so that’s not great as our criteria. Your pet is likely to be nominated if they:
1. Are a good boy or girl in consult
2. Have any unique and loveable quirks
3. Have an interesting story to tell

What can your pet win? We LOVE making up little prize packs, and the fun part is, they’re all different! Your pet could win toys, collars, leads, kongs, bowls, food, and accessories. The possibilities are endless!

Our December Pet Of The Month winner is Raffa!
Raffa was nominated by Dr Lobke for being super well behaved in the clinic, being super sweet, and for having an overall interesting medical condition to treat.

Our January Pet Of The Month winner is Tilly!
Tilly was nominated by Dr Kennedy for always being happy and super brave for her blood test! What a good girl.


We have a new vet joining our team! We’d love to introduce Dr Nicole! Nicole has been working as a vet in Australia for the past two years,  and though Australian born, she lived and studied in Chile. It was over there where she got the feel for the veterinary industry and fell in love with it. She looked after a shelter with over 35 dogs, where she rescued dogs off the streets and rehomed them.

We are so lucky that Nicole has recently made the move to the Northern Rivers and has joined both our teams! In Nicole’s spare time, she loves surfing, going on waterfall adventures with her friends, and living life to the fullest.

Welcome Nicole!


We have seen an unusual number of kennel cough cases in dogs over the past few weeks. Please make sure your dog is up to date with vaccinations. Kennel cough spreads very fast, and some dogs experience a terrible cough to the point where they start dry reaching and vomiting. Kennel cough to dogs is like whooping cough to adults, and as you can imagine, this can be very distressing both for you and your pooch.
If you aren’t sure what your dog’s vaccination status is, just call us and we can check it for you.


Don’t forget, North Coast Emergency Vets are here to help every single weeknight from 5:30pm to 8am, all weekend, and every public holiday!
