Hi and welcome to the Berry Haven Veterinary Group (BHVG).

Right from graduation, I decided to be really good at small animal medicine and surgery and not spread my skills too thinly with mixed practice. As a result, BHVG only looks after small animals. I have over 35 years of small animal experience, and have been your local Illawarra and Shoalhaven vet for over 25 years. I know your line of thinking when it comes to pet care and treat client’s pets the same way I would treat my own.

I have lived in Berry and Shoalhaven Heads for the last 15 years, and enjoy playing tennis at Shoalhven Heads Tennis Club and squash at Bomaderry Squash and Fitness Centre. Other vices include learning to surf, mountain bike riding and bush walking (and the occasional ale).

BHVG has just one full time (me) and one part time vet (Simone). That means you see the same vet each time you visit, just like I personally prefer to see my own dentist, GP, car mechanic and accountant (except when the bill arrives of course).

BHVG employs 3 very experienced nurses, Rebecca, Suzy and Katelin. All the staff have lived in the area for a very long time, and know the local pet health issues inside out. We have the backup of visiting specialists and referral vets for those very tricky cases.

We have two clinics at Berry and Shoalhaven Heads, and offer a 24 hour emergency service. 

Should you have any queries about your pet or wish to make an appointment, please contact me on (02) 4448 5621 or email info@berryhavenvet.com.au

I would love to meet both you and your pet(s), have a chat and give you a tour of the clinic, and see how I can help you.

What you say about us...

This is my beautiful baby Ted and he loves his new vet. Up until now all the other vets kept telling him he needed to lose weight and to go on one of the science diets. Well of course he doesn't like those. Dr Mark has given us a new diet that he absolutely loves and lost 400gms in his first week so we are very happy with the results. This is definitely the vet to see.
