A message from Roland ...

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 dating back to the late 1800s/early 1900s 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.
