Wembley Veterinary Hospital
Veterinarians - Jolimont, WA
Wembley Veterinary Hospital located in Jolimont specialises in dog and cat boarding, surgical procedures, laboratory tests, dentistry, oto-endoscopy, x-ray, puppy training classes and more.
Wembley Veterinary Hospital was established in 1939. Since then, we have grown to become a well-respected practice, servicing the hospital, grooming and boarding needs of pets throughout the western suburbs of Perth.
The Wembley Veterinary Hospital practices a high standard of care and is focused on maintaining the health, welfare and comfort of its patients. It believes in preventing disease wherever possible, but also is able to put the pieces back together when things sometimes go wrong. Their outstanding care was recently recognised by being awarded a "Hospital of Excellence" award by the Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association. They are one of only 4 Hospitals in Perth to have received this distinguished award.
Dr Garry Edgar is the owner and manager of the Hospital. He is originally from Perth and was trained at the Murdoch University Campus. He graduated in 1990. Garry commenced with the Wembley Veterinary Hospital in 1995, working briefly with the previous owner, Dr George Endacott. At the end of 1995 George retired after 23 years working at the Hospital, and Dr Edgar took over from him.
Dr Edgar became only the third veterinarian to have managed the Wembley Veterinary Hospital since 1940. Dr Edgar has many special interests, including Feline Medicine, Reconstructive (plastic) and Orthopaedic Surgery, Dermatology and Endocrinology (hormones). As well as his Veterinary work, Dr Edgar has served on various professional bodies and committees within the Veterinary Profession. Like many Veterinarians, he is committed to Animal Welfare and has served on the Western Australian Emergency Welfare Advisory Committee and his interests in Cats resulted in him becoming a member of the Advisory Committee implementing the new Cat Act.
Dr Edgar is supported by Drs Kristen Holloway, Fiona Biemel and Kate Webber, as well as 5 Registered Veterinary Nurses, 2 trainee Veterinary Nurses and 3 Groomers.
