Cooks Hill Veterinary Clinic is located in the heart of Newcastle on Darby St, Cooks Hill.


At Cooks Hill Veterinary Clinic, we are committed to providing the highest quality animal care for your pet. We provide an array of veterinary services including free puppy meet and greets, vaccinations, microchipping, routine and non-routine surgical procedures, dentistry (including dental x-rays), nutritional advice, preventative medicine, as well as cat boarding and puppy preschool. 

We are a small animal hospital, meaning we are a dog friendly and cat friendly clinic. Unfortunately, we do not treat pocket pets or exotic pets. 

We are equipped with the most state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment, including a full in-house pathology system, x-ray and dental x-ray machinery, excellent anaesthetic equipment with ultra-sensitive monitoring equipment for extra safety with anaesthetics, and class leading dental equipment.

We offer a full cat boarding facility, which provides your cat with a safe and comfortable home away from home, with daily cleaning, feeding, and cuddles, so you can rest easy knowing that your cat is safe while you are away. 

Our friendly team of staff are all pet owners and animal lovers. Our priority is the wellness of your pet. We understand how it feels when your pet is not well, and we will do everything possible to ensure your pet lives a healthy and happy life.  

Cooks Hill Veterinary Clinic works closely with other specialist clinics, including the Veterinary Dermatology Clinic, Newcastle Veterinary Ultrasound, the Animal Referral and Emergency Centre (AREC) and the Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH), to ensure that our patients receive the best vet care possible.

Hero of the Month


Meet Peg

Peg with three legs is currently looking for her fur-ever home!

Peg is a 5 month old domestic short hair.

She was surrendered to us at the end of March after falling from a balcony and sustaining a nasty fracture to her left hind leg (see image above).

Since then Peg has had her leg amputated (the damage to bone and muscle was too severe to save the leg, so amputation was the best option for her quality of life), she has also been desexed, vaccinated (she will need one more kitten booster in May), and given prevention for fleas, ticks and worms.

Over the past few weeks Peg has really come out of her shell. She enjoys pats, snacks, and playing (especially with mouse or string toys).

She has adapted so well to life with three legs, we're all very proud of her.


If you are interested in adopting Peg please call or email us at and we can arrange a meet and greet.
