Local Vets in Mowbray
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.
