Bellarine Veterinary Practice, Geelong

Bellarine Veterinary Practice, Geelong, provides quality care for pets of all kinds and sizes. We have been part of the Geelong community for more than 35 years, starting when founding partners, veterinarians Ewen McMillan and David Hopkins, established the first clinic. Ewan remains a partner and full-time veterinarian, while David is now a casual consultant veterinarian.

Since it began, Bellarine Veterinary Practice has grown from one vet clinic to six, with three of these clinics being fully equipped veterinarian hospitals. The main practice at Newcomb has been Geelong’s only accredited Australian Veterinary Association (ASAVA) hospital since 1990. Naturally, with increased clinics, comes more staff. Today Geelong’s Bellarine Veterinary Practice employs more than 70 staff, made up of veterinarians, nurses, receptionists, administration staff, dog trainers, pet groomers and hospital attendants. Our entire team is committed to our practice’s core values of honesty, reliability, unity, care and a sense of fun.

Our team insists on the highest standards in facilities and equipment, which means you can be assured of the highest quality care for your pet, whether it’s a kitten or pocket pet, mouse, dog or bird. Naturally, we back up our quality care with Geelong’s most extensive range of veterinarian services for every stage of your pet’s life, from preventative health to dog training and grooming.
