Welcome to Hervey Bay Veterinary Surgery

"We Care About You And Your Pet"

We pride ourselves on providing a caring, compassionate and safe environment for your best friend.

Dr Ron McKay, BVSc and his associates have been providing gold-standard veterinary care to the animal population of Hervey Bay for over 20 years. Caring for all creatures great and small, Dr McKay and his team have continued to update and upgrade the practice to ensure only the latest and best medical practices are adhered to.

CritterCare Membership Programme

We would like to thank all clients who have been and are still apart of our CritterCare program. As it currently stands, we are not going to be able to continue to offer this program. There is no need to worry if you are already a CritterCare member, your discounts and special prices will still be honoured until your subscription runs out. We are not putting through any new subscriptions or renewals for the time being. This change supports our interest in looking after all of our clients and their pets equally. In the future, we may restart a program that gives very similar benefits to this program and we will keep everyone updated as to when this is up and running.
