Welcome to Rye Vet Clinic. The Rye Vet Clinic is a caring family run business situated in Rye on Point Nepean Road. The clinic is open seven days a week and offers after hours until 11 pm. Car parking is available at the rear of the clinic and there is a rear and front entry. We enjoy dealing with all types of pets including cats, dogs, rabbits, ferrets, birds and other exotics. Our staff members all have a caring attitude because we understand that pets are an important part of the family and deserve the best of care. Dr Jaan Ackland is the owner of the business and has been a vet for 16 years, the last seven years of which have been at Rye Vet Clinic. Dr. Heather Kingston has been a vet for over 30 years and established Rye Vet Clinic in 1987. We have a happy working environment and loyal staff that you can rely on and trust. Our aim is to provide continuity of veterinary care at a high standard.

Rye Vet Clinic offers a wide range of general veterinary services. Along with medical and surgical services, we offer orthopaedic surgery, x-rays, ultrasound, microchipping and scanning, puppy preschool and weight management. We are fortunate to be able to offer the services of veterinarian Dr. Andy Vickery who can provide his skills for more complex surgical procedures. Dr. John Kingston is also available for complex anaesthetics, advanced x-rays and ultrasound. Behavioural consultations as well as acupuncture can also be offered in house. Pets can be referred to veterinary specialists when the need arises. Great products including prescription and quality pet food, a range of worming and flea products as well as leads and collars are also available.

We look forward to seeing you with your pet soon.
