Vet marks 35 years
Celebrating 35 years of providing excellent veterinary care in the community, Baldivis Vet will next month open its doors to the public for its third annual open day.
Helping thousands of pets and native wildlife since it started, Baldivis Vet is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Baldivis Vet head receptionist and marketing co- coordinator Kylie Soanes said reaching 35 years was a significant milestone and the open day would be a way to “celebrate with the community”.
“This is a chance for people to see behind the scenes,” she said. The open day will have a range of activities on offer, including an animal farm where native animals such as koalas, dingos, bearded dragons and snakes will be on show. A farrier display will also be on again this year, proving popular at previous events.
Last year’s open day attracted more than 2000 people, eager to check out the inner workings of the vet hospital.
Also available on the day will be pony rides ( disguised as unicorns), face- painting, a licensed bar and live entertainment. Rescue organisations will also be present, including local organisation Don’t Go Astray, which helps rehome stray and abandoned animals.
“This is a chance for the community to come and also meet the vets who work here and there will be tours inside the centre,” Ms Soanes said.
Owner Dr Rob Davies said he established the practice in 1984 to create a one- stop service where people did not have to leave town to access treatment for their pets.
The Baldivis Vet Open Day will be held from 10am- 4pm on March 31.
Baldivis Vet will be holding its third annual open day next month.
