Welcome to Animal Referral Hospital

The Animal Referral Hospital aims to provide veterinarians and their patients with the highest possible standards of veterinary care. We have two state of the art facilities, and specialists who are internationally recognised in their fields.

Our nursing staff are dedicated to the care and wellbeing of pets in the hospital. Our staff are all devoted pet owners themselves, and pets are treated as our own, with every effort made to make their stay as comfortable as possible.


"Dear Team Members,

Thank you so much for attending to our much loved Mini Schnauzer who was admitted in a critically ill state by Dr. Vikki to your Baulkham Hills Hospital around midnight on the 19th of February and then transferred to the care of Dr. John Angles at Homebush. Due to your excellent care we were able to take her home last night, apparently on the road to recovery."

~ Mini Schnauzer
