A message from Trevor ...

We are a family-owned companion animal practice based on the northside of Brisbane and are looking forward to meeting you and your pets! Our surgery includes the benefits of a modern, professional veterinary practice with the caring, personalised service that you may expect from your local family doctor. 
Drs Bernie and Megan Bredhauer took ownership of Northgate Vet Surgery back in 2003; and have worked hard to serve the pets of Northgate and beyond with personal and professional care. The surgery has recently moved across the road to its own new location at 98 Ridge Street on the corner of Northgate Road and Ridge Street. Its new home was the original general store for the area and we are very proud of its heritage and history. 

At Northgate Vets, we believe in the best in patient care, comfort and safety; and we really understand the importance of your pet to you and your family. You can rely on us to help you when you need us, to be there to enjoy the great times and to support you in the tough times. Pets are a journey; and we can guide you along the way to make yours rewarding and fulfilling and one of the best experiences of your life. 

August and September are Pet Dental Months!

FREE Dental Check

Northgate Vet will be running pet dental promotions throughout August & September; to raise awareness of pet dental problems, prevention and treatment and the importance of thorough dental examinations.

Four out of five dogs and cats over the age of three years will have some sort of dental disease. Pets often will not show pain. Even pets with sore gums, infected mouths and broken teeth will continue to eat so owners may not see any problems.

So, how can you tell if your dog or cat is in the early stages of dental disease? Gums may be red and inflamed, and the teeth stained with tartar or the pet may start dropping food. Also, your pet’s breath might smell bad, indicating infection.

Allow us at Northgate Vet to assess your dog or cat‘s oral health free of charge. We are excited to offer A FREE DENTAL CHECK with a vet. During the examination, we will be happy to discuss the options of oral hygiene for your dog or cat at home. We may recommend regular tooth brushing or dental treats. Many cats and dogs can be trained to enjoy having their teeth brushed, especially if you start at an early age. Other options in keeping the teeth sparkling also can be discussed.

To complement the free dental check, Northgate Vet is also offering 15% off the price of a first time Scale and Polish procedure under anaesthetic and discounted cost of extractions if they are required.

August & September is definitely a great time to ring us on 3266 9992.
