General consultations

Lort Smith Animal Hospital is the largest animal hospital in Australia. With ten consultation rooms we have the capacity to see over 130 general consults on any given weekday. We understand pets are an important member of the family and know how important it is to keep them healthy and free from illness. If your pet is due for a general health check and vaccination or if you have concerns about its health, we have a team of qualified vets on duty each day with whom you can book a consultation.

During the consultation they will provide a clinical examination and professional advice on the health and wellbeing of your pet. Additionally, we can help if you have noticed abnormal symptoms with your pet such as gastroenteritis (vomiting or diarrhoea), weight loss, excess thirst/drinking, stiffness when walking, limping, abnormal lumps and bumps, eye problems, lack of appetite, coughing or sneezing.

The vet will discuss with you any tests that may be required to help diagnose the problem and outline an appropriate treatment and follow-up plan.

Referring a patient

Lort Smith regularly receives referrals from other veterinary practices who have already consulted with a client.

All Lort Smith consultations require an appointment and due to our caseload there can be a wait of several days for some procedures. We close to the public at midnight. However, we have staff caring for patients 24-hours a day.
