Who Are We?
Previously the Zillmere Veterinary Surgery team, our experienced team is now the Virginia Family Vet. It goes without saying, we could not achieve the amazing things we do without our caring and compassionate team.
Originally, we were the Zillmere Vet Surgery and for over 25 years we have been providing exceptional care for our wonderful patients and clients. Our commitment to high Standards of Care, compassion, and excellence in healthcare delivery saw our practice expand to the extent that our little building near the train station was bursting at the seams. Parking became a major challenge!
Thus began the search for a new home, and after several years, we found the perfect location in Virginia. A 12 month journey with council and contractors ensued and in March 2023 we saw our last patient in Zillmere. With great excitement (and some tears) we reopened in our beautiful, purpose-built facility as Virginia Family Vet.
Our facility has been designed to make visiting the vet as stress free as possible for both pets and people. We have a spacious reception area and lots of consult rooms so anxious pets can be quickly moved to a quiet area. There are cat exclusive consult rooms and hospital wards and a separate cat waiting area. We have two sterile surgery suites, advanced dentistry capabilities, in-house radiology and lab, and closely supervised hospitalisation runs and recovery areas.
We are proud of our low staff turnover (Dr Karen has been with the practice since 1998!), our excellent Standards of Care, and our beautiful low stress hospital design.
We look forward to welcoming you to the VFV family.
