The Visiting Vet was founded in December 2012 to provide the highest quality care for your pets at home, in a stress free environment.
Veterinary care is vital for our furry friends as they can not tell you what is wrong or where it hurts and they are extremely good at hiding any pain or discomfort. Vet visits are important for the health and long life of your pet so they can stay with us as long as possible. However, many families and pets find visiting a vet clinic to be a stressful and anxious experience. A stressed pet can use their adrenaline to hide some or all of their symptoms.
Seeing a pet in their home environment can also help our vets get a full picture of things that may be impacting on your pet’s health such as, where they sleep, what and how much they eat and what is in their immediate environment. All this information gathered at your home can be useful when dealing with disease, obesity and skin issues.
Mobile veterinary services are ideal for:
Follow Up Care
End of Life Care
In multiple pet households, extended consultation time can be arranged so that each of your beloved animals can be given individual attention and care.
The Visiting Vet has a sterile surgery room in Werribee, available for those times when it is necessary for pets to attend a clinic. We provide procedures such as dentals, desexings and other surgical requirements. We also offer a pick up and drop off service if needed.
The Visiting Vet knows that for your fur babies there is no place like home.

Meet Our Team
Sandy founded The Visiting Vet in 2012. Too often she was hearing how difficult it was for clients to bring elderly, anxious or sick pets to the clinic so she decided to make it easier for them. Sandy has an interest in alternative medicine and is currently expanding her knowledge by doing a Chinese medicine and small animal acupuncture course.
In October 2017 the surgery room was built in Werribee to expand the services The Visiting Vet could provide for clients and patients. Sandy is working towards getting a full clinic up and running but needs to find the perfect location first.
Sandy is owned by Tori, a chocolate Labrador, Dizzy, a kelpie x whippet rescue dog (foster fail), Smokey (rescue cat) and Little puss, another rescue cat.
Alex joined The Visiting Vet team in October 2018.
She has worked as a small animal veterinarian for over 8 years. While she enjoys all aspects of caring for her patients, her special interest lies in the field of canine rehabilitation, which she is currently undertaking further study in.
At home Alex is kept on her toes by a mischievous miniature dachshund named Franklin and Bear her foster kitten that she couldn’t part with.

In 2008, Kerrie had a short break from small animals, and worked in the thoroughbred racing industry for 3 years but returned to small animal vet nursing to continue her passion for small animal care. Kerrie has a soft spot for the oldies and even more so if they're a Jack Russell.

When not working hard at The Visiting Vet, you will find Kerrie at home on the farm training her horses or behind the camera taking pet photos and as an assistant wedding photographer.
As a qualified vet nurse and passionate animal lover, Kerrie takes pride in giving the best possible care to you and your pet.
