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.

Meet Boogie

Boogie is an 8 month old Staffy cross who was presented to us in December after becoming suddenly lame after a visit to the park.

After a physical examination and radiographs, it was established that Boogie had a fracture through his distal proximal phalanx 5th digit on his left forefoot (the bone at the tip of his outer left toe on his left forefoot)

Unfortunately it was established that the fracture was too close to the middle interphalyngeal joint for internal fixation, so the treatment options were:

1. Splint for 4-6 weeks with weekly changes. May get a non-union as it is very difficult to keep absolutely stable and may need to amputate

2. Toe amputation: should have no long term problems and will not affect ambulation

After much discussion, it was decided to go with option two and Boogie was booked in for a toe amputation the following day.

Boogie's surgery went really well and he was a very brave boy while in hospital!

His toe was amputated and his foot was bandaged to keep the wound clean and dry, and prevent licking.

Boogie then had to come back every other day for the next week for a bandage change and wound check, after a week the bandage could remain off.

The sutures were removed twelve days post surgery, and his wound had healed wonderfully, you could hardly tell there was ever a toe there!

Boogie has made a remarkable recovery, and is happier than ever!
