About Us


Port Macquarie Veterinary Hospital has provided veterinary care to the region continuously since 1971.

We are a privately owned practice run by Dr Chris Livingston, Dr Tim Reed and Paula Reed, and we are committed to delivering the best care for all of the animals that pass through our doors.

Our hospital is centrally located in Port Macquarie on Gordon Street, and we are often known as the vet with the "leopard up the palm tree". 

We consider our doctors and nurses to be the best in the business, and without our wonderful staff, we cease to be a practice at all. Everyone here has a genuine and caring nature, and they turn up to work because they love the work that they do.

Our belief is that our commitment and dedication translates into a wonderful experience for you and, most importantly, your animals.
