Rochester Veterinary Practices offers 24-hour services for both small animals and large animals.

We offer many small animal services for dogs, cats, rabbits, ferrets, rats, mice, birds and wildlife.

We offer many large animal services for dairy cattle, beef cattle, sheep, goats, alpacas, pigs and camels. We do not offer any services for horses.

In association with the University of Melbourne faculty of Veterinary and Agricultural Sciences, as well as other Veterinary Schools throughout Australia, we often have veterinary students doing placements and electives with us. We enjoy this side of work, teaching the next generation of vets about country practice.

If you are a student and wanting to arrange a clinical placement or an elective at the practice and would also like to arrange accommodation, please send your enquiries to Gabe Hunt, the practice manager, at
