About Us

The largest and most comprehensive veterinary facility in South Australia

The University of Adelaide Veterinary Health Centres provide South Australian communities with the best and most comprehensive healthcare and medical treatment to all species of animals.

We have four veterinary health centres at the heart of University of Adelaide’s Roseworthy campus which aim 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.
