Dedicated dog and cat waiting areas support a less stressful environment for your pets, especially for cats. However, it's not just cats and dogs we see. We see rabbits, ferrets, birds and more!

Vetwest have been the local vets in Perth for 25 years, with 16 clinics from Clarkson to Mandurah. We exist today because Perth pet owners have been delighted with the compassion we provide to them and the care we provide to their companions. Vetwest Rockingham is no exception to this and our team is made up of people that truly love animals and have dedicated their working careers to veterinary medicine.
