The History of Northern Beaches Vet Hospital.

In 2003 long-term Northern Beaches resident Dr. David Lemmon left a veterinary partnership to open his own practice. Several years later, he wanted to be able to expand to provide more services to his patients, but lacked the room to do so. Located across the road from his small clinic was what is today the Northern Beaches Veterinary Hospital. He bought it, acquired the certifications necessary to turn his practice into a hospital, and opened as a full-service vet hospital in 2010.

The hospital’s veterinarians and support staff have facilities that allow the team to deliver surgical services, isolation facilities, and overnight care, laboratory services and state-of-the-art diagnostics. Whether your furry or feathered loved one requires vaccination or surgery, behaviour training, special diet or supplements, we can provide it using the state-of-the-art technology and the latest equipment available.
