Our Facilities

Mudgee Vet Hospital believe in working and communicating as a unified team. Our aim is to understand our clients and patients' needs while providing the highest level of care and respect.


Purpose-built clinic

Our hospital contains all the things you’d expect in a modern day veterinary practice. This means we have many elaborate pieces of equipment. Our hospital is equipped to perform most types of surgery with modern anaesthetic machines, cardiac and respiratory monitors and critical care monitors. Our surgery can handle any sized pet (cat or dog), and our anaesthetics are very similar to an operating theatre in a human hospital.

The practice is equipped with modern medical equipment such as an in-house pathology system, the latest x-ray equipment, endoscopes, ultrasound and advanced anaesthetics to ensure the best care for your pet.

Since 1981, Mudgee Veterinary Practice has been the backbone of quality veterinary care in Mudgee. The partners Steve Slack-Smith, Paige Loneragan, Kate Elder and Jack Holman have continued building the hospital into a vibrant, friendly practice that is focused on offering the best service for our clients and our patients.

The current Mudgee Veterinary Hospital is a purpose-built, world-class facility which was constructed in 2013. The Mudgee Veterinary Hospital operates out of three locations: Mudgee, Rylstone and Gulgong.
