Snowy River Vet Clinic was started by Dr Peter Honey, who moved to the area with his family in the early 1980s. Peter built the clinic up from a small part time service into a two to three vet practice providing high quality medical and surgical services for the pets, horses, livestock and wildlife from Omeo to Mallacoota.
Drs David and Liz Mitchell joined the practice as partners in 1999, and became full practice owners in 2008 when Peter was invited to take up a teaching post with the new Veterinary Science faculty at Charles Sturt Universtiy in Wagga Wagga, NSW.
