Gawler Animal Hospital

Your full-service, high quality, locally-owned veterinary practice.

Gawler Animal Hospital is a Veterinary Surgeon’s Board Accredited Hospital (one of only twenty such hospitals in South Australia). Although this may not mean much to you, what’s really important is that meeting the standards to gain and maintain hospital status means we’re qualified to do a great job of looking after every aspect of your pets care! With our fantastic team of vets, nurses and receptionists you can be assured of a really high level of service when you bring your pets in for all their health-care needs.


We’re also accredited by the International Society of Feline Medicine as a gold-standard ‘Cat Friendly Clinic’. This accreditation was the result of a lot of hard work and additional training to provide the facilities, staff, knowledge and focus on our feline patients. You’ll see the benefits when you bring your cats in to see us – much less stress and a more pleasant experience for all concerned!


Many of our clients have been coming to us for over twenty years and have watched the practice grow and thrive from our previous entity as ‘Gawler South Small Animal Hospital’. We moved from Fourth Street to our current location in August 2016 and have gone from strength to strength since then.


The practice is 100% private and locally-owned. Drs Dave MacPhail and Steve Crouch have had an association with the practice stretching back over twenty years now. They both live locally and have seen their respective families grow up here. The passion they bring to their work is reflected throughout everything we do and the strong, client-focussed culture of the practice has developed under their guidance. This is something that makes Gawler Animal Hospital stand out head-and-shoulders above other practices in the region and throughout South Australia.


There has always been a very friendly atmosphere at Gawler Animal Hospital, and this translates to happy staff, happy clients and relaxed pets (we work really hard at this last bit)! Client service ranks very highly on our list of priorities and so you know you will be looked after just as well as your pets!
