SMVG is one of regional Australia’s leading providers of complete animal well-being, and is a benchmark by which rural mixed practice is judged.
We are the community’s first point of reference for questions of animal health and well-being.
We treat existing health issues with a balanced, whole-of-animal approach. We aim to provide integrated management advice to minimise disease and maximise vitality.
We operate out of hospitals that are good for the animals (including humans) that spend time here, as well as for the environment they are a part of. They are inspiring to visit and to work in.
We are an employer-of-choice. Our staff are treated as a valuable resource, but also as precious human beings. We provide for their well-being at work and actively encourage them to improve themselves personally and professionally.
We foster and encourage a positive attitude which we believe drives success in all facets of life.
We are a centre for training excellent contributors to the animal health industry, from animal attendants and veterinary nurses to veterinarians and veterinary business managers.
This vision outlines our aspirations for now and into the future. We have written it in the present tense to help us visualise, and therefore achieve, our goals.
