About Us
The highest standards in animal healthcare: based in science, aided with technology and delivered with compassion.

Who We Are?

At Cottesloe Vet we are very proud to have maintained our ASAVA Accredited Veterinary Hospital status since 1981.

We are committed to providing the highest quality of compassionate, personalised veterinary care and customer service. As a result, we have high quality facilities and equipment, and our staff regularly attend continuing education seminars to keep ourselves up to date with the latest in best practice veterinary care.

The ASAVA (Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association) is an official body whose aim is to promote high standards of veterinary care for Australian pet owners. Clinics are audited for accreditation on a one to three yearly basis. Accreditation is awarded only to those showing the highest standards of veterinary facilities and care. These standards must be maintained year-in, year-out.

There are over 170 veterinary premises throughout WA, only three are currently ASAVA Accredited.

Our commitment to providing the highest standard of veterinary care is further substantiated by the facts that all of our veterinarians have been long term members of the Australian Veterinary Association so that we can remain in touch with the latest information and trends in the industry, and be part of a national body advocating for animal and veterinary welfare.

Additionally, Dr David Neck and Dr Yoko Clinch are both members of the Australian College of Veterinary Scientists by examination. This has required many hours of self study as well as written and oral examination assessed by specialists in veterinary science.

At Cottesloe Animal Hospital, we are committed to donating our time to help look after and promote pet healthcare on a larger scale. We regularly donate our services to the Association for the Blind of WA Guide Dogs WA, WA Ferrets and Ferreting Society, USAR K9 WA, the Feline Control Council of Western Australia Inc. and the Royal Agricultural Society of WA, as well as many other community organisations.

We are also committed to sharing our knowledge and skills, and as well as mentoring new graduate veterinarians, we regularly have veterinary students and veterinary nursing students undertaking work experience with us at the clinic.
