About Our Clinic

Mowbray Veterinary Clinic is a small animal practice in Launceston, Tasmania which first opened its doors in 1992.  Since then the clinic has grown to employ four full time veterinarians through its work in the community and its dedication to animal welfare.

Improving the human-animal bond through effective and compassionate veterinary care is central to everything we do.

All of our veterinarians are current members of the Australian Veterinary Association, Sydney University’s Continuing Education Program and the International online Veterinary Information Network.

A huge thank you to everyone who has helped Stubby get a second chance on life! 🐾💕

Yesterday Dr Chris Allfree and his assistant Stacey from #BrightFuturesSurgery performed surgery on Stubby under the watchful eye of our anaesthetic nurse Leah! 🚑

Thank you to everyone who donated to make this possible (buying the wonderful magnets, coming in for our fundraising vaccination days, buying bandanas) - to our head nurse Leah for taking action to prevent his euthanasia, @NorthEastAnimalSanctuary for helping fundraise and to Chris and Stacey from Hobart for performing his surgery.

Any left over money has been put towards “Stubby’s Grant” a fund to help support other surgeries for in need rescue animals! 💕🐾😍🥰🎉
