History

Ingleburn Veterinary Hospital has been caring for the pets of Ingleburn since 1983.

1983 - The hospital was established by Dr Mark Fetterplace. The original site was in Stanley Rd opposite the railway station, when Oxford Rd had a a level crossing over the railway line. Back then, the hospital was staffed by only one vet (Mark) and one nurse.

1988 - We moved to 92 Oxford Rd, where a purpose-built veterinary hospital was constructed. At that time we were known as Oxford Road Veterinary Hospital.

1993 - We purchased a small part-time clinic (Ingleburn Veterinary Clinic), incorporated it into our hospital, and changed our name to Ingleburn Veterinary Hospital.

1995 - Our hospital, including all patient records and client accounts was fully computerised.

1998 - We switched to an appointment system to provide better service to our clients and patients. We also started our quarterly newsletters to all current clients.

2001 - Our first website was launched!

2006 - In March 2006 we moved to 4/2 Noonan Road, into a hospital 4 times the size of Oxford Rd.

2010 - Our Groom Room officially opened, to provide our clients with a full pet pampering service by a fully trained dog stylist.

2010 - We opened our Cat Boarding facility!
