Our resident animals


Community

At 313Vets, we believe it's important to engage with the community by doing what we can.

Community

We provide discounted services to animal rescue groups; Forever Friends Animal Rescue and Chihuahua Rescue Australia, to help rehome animals in a responsible manner.

In April, we run Acupuncture April to encourage adjunctive treatment in our pets, and also to raise money for the ICA swim club. We offer a free acupuncture session in April, followed by the treatment costs going to the swim club. This is to sponsor their Nationals competition.

We also have strong associations with MHSOB Hockey Club.
