About us

“To provide exceptional veterinary care in a professional, friendly and compassionate manner, whilst maintaining the highest standard of integrity and veterinary ethics.”

The health and welfare of you and your pet is what matters most to us. What sets us apart from other veterinary surgeries is our depth of knowledge and experience, plus our award winning customer service.

We care about the owners of the pets we see. In this regard we offer loyalty rewards for those diligent owners who maintain optimum healthcare for their animals. We are a close-knit community of villages we strive to know our pet owners on a more personal basis. 

Dandenong Ranges Veterinary Centre sponsors and donates time and money to numerous local organisations and clubs, schools, church groups and CFA's. We are a major sponsor of the Olinda Cricket Club, Sassafras-Ferny Creek Netball Club, Olinda Ferny Creek Junior Football Club, Olinda Junior Cricket Club and the Olinda-Ferny Creek Football Netball Club (The "Bloods"). The intention is to give service to our unique community, not just from a veterinary perspective, so that the village atmosphere remains.

The surgery endeavours to employ local people and accepts work experience students from families who are clients.

The vets and nurses at Dandenong Ranges Veterinary Centre welcome you to our surgery if you are a new client and look forward to seeing you regularly whether you are a new or existing client.

About the kookaburra logo

The kookaburra logo was chosen for its distinctly Australian image and association with nature and the Dandenong Ranges. Also the ridges on the top of the logo are intended to represent the hills of the Dandenong Ranges.

The heritage colour scheme of green, red and cream is intended to portray our quest to blend and help with nature when treating animals. The colours & kookaburra also reflect the natural environment of the Dandenong Ranges.

The overall appearance of the logo is that of a key hence our original slogan "The Key to Animal Health". More recently our slogan has become "We Care" because we do care about pets & their owners! We have a lot of veterinary experience & knowledge but operate under the belief that "People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care!" (John C Maxwell quote).
