About Us

Roseworthy Veterinary Hospital, based within the heart of University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy campus, aims to enhance the health and well-being of your pets and animals. We are located on the site of the former Roseworthy Agricultural College, of which many of the original buildings remain.

Our veterinarians are involved in innovative university research which provides them with extended knowledge and evidence-based practices in veterinary medicine. These experts work together with experienced and compassionate nursing staff and vibrant veterinary science students to achieve excellence in the diagnosis, treatment and management of our patients.
