Dear Ivor and your wonderful employees,
We can't thank you enough for the care you have shown to our Tigger.
Without your untiring efforts over the holiday period I fear we might have lost him.
He is now good as new! What is so pleasing is that you showed the same care and attention that I am sure you bring to your own pets. What more could we ask for.
A big thank you again.

Amazing team of dedicated professionals! Our Boy had some major Dental surgery and we could not be more impressed with the the team at Ringwood East VetCare. It was very stressful for us sending our baby into surgery but they did an absolutely amazing job and kept us well informed during surgery and post. Thank you for your hard work and dedication Ringwood East VetCare!

Nine lives pet rescue have been using this clinic since we opened our doors to stray cats and kittens. Not only are they happy to work with rescue ringwood east vet care offer us constant support and go above and beyond for all our cats and kittens. We always no our animals are in good hands and being well looked after every time we go.
I personally have also had my own animals cared for there and feel each animals is cared for on an individual level and the time and care is taken to make sure all there needs are met.

Arrived at the clinic 5 min late as a first time client ( yes, this can be annoying for other clients and vet ) however, the Receptionist was really rude, brushed me off without any way contact. It was like she was saying ' I don't care if you come back' Don't recommend this clinic

The staff have been looking after our two dogs since puppyhood. At 12 &11, our Groodle & Golden Retriever are kept in excellent health thanks to the advice and care given through regular check ups. Our dogs enjoy their visits especially the pats, attention and liver treats they receive. We can recommend them highly.

The team at ringwood east vetcare are very caring and compassionate. Ivor has been our vet for years. He stops at nothing to make sure our dogs are happy and healthy. Wouldn't go anywhere else.

When our much loved dog became suddenly sick (bleeding /vomiting), our usual vet wouldn't see her for several hours, I called Ringwood East Vetcare (not our usual Vet at the time) and despite being fully booked, said to bring her in straight away. She had to be hospitalised, it was a Saturday morning, they cared for her, they came in especially on Sunday morning and again Sunday night, met us at the clinic and talked us through what was happening. I knew she was in the best hands and the saved her life ! Had we waited until our previous vet would see her, we probably would have lost her. I will always be grateful for their expertise, genuine care and dedication that saved our furchild. I would certainly recommend this Vet clinic.

The entire team at Ringwood East Vetcare are not only professional and thorough with all aspects of Vet care but they are more than happy to spend the necessary time with each client to ensure they have a full understanding of their pets needs. It is a very warm and friendly clinic who only have your pets best interest at heart. My cats are due for dental surgery this week and I find that very stressful having lost a precious 4 legged member during surgery some time ago and the staff are very astute to my needs and we have discussed additional actions (bloods and Fluids) that will aid my cats speedy recovery. It is greatly appreciated.

Ivor and the team are just wonderful. I have been to a few different vets and have found Ivor and the team incredibly caring and gentle. They care not just about our animal companions in their care but their owners too. Would never go anywhere else.

Took my cat here even though it was not his regular vet. He was looked after, and I was given alot of emotional support as well. My poor cat had to be put down and I had every faith that he was looked after

Over a period of years they minded my dog. I found them to be VERY caring and very good at what they do. After he had to be put down, they even sent me a card expressing their regret for my loss. I have found them helpful when I was looking to provide a home for another dog.

Ivor and his team at Ringwood East Vetcare are wonderful, I wish I could receive the same level of service at my doctor's surgery.
When Rosie my dog is unwell and distressed so am I, and clearly the team at Ringwood East Vetcare understand that. My pet is handled gently, the same way I treat her myself. Roise is examined in my presence and everything is explained to me carefully. The treatment options are also explained to me and afterwards the results and follow-up are reviewed together so I have an understanding of everything from when we arrived to when we leave and beyond.
We don't necessarily have to attend in person when I call in relation to an existing condition, but if asked I will make the 45 minute journey without hesitation.
My unconditional recommendation to all pet owners.

The staff here are usually wonderful. They take a genuine interest in our dog and always remember his name if they see him going by their door on a walk.
Mostly, their consultations are thorough, kind and caring to animal and human. They've been great when we've had emergencies and are excellent about giving phone advice when needed. I've had one instance of a rude and condescending vet here, and I will avoid that in the future by making sure to book in to see Ivan, who is wonderful.
It's just wonderful to be able to call them up and talk to your dog's regular vet, and get some advice when I have one of those "my dog ate this, what do I do?" emergencies.
One thing I will say is that if you need to buy wound dressings for a dog, go to a horse supply store like Horseland rather than using the vet supplies. They are a quarter of the price and I do not exaggerate.

Ivor, Christine and the team were absolutely wonderful in looking after both our kitten and us. Sadly, our kitten had a rare but rapid terminal illness. The lengths to which they went to treat him, get the correct diagnosis then ease his suffering, affording him dignity, were absolutely incredible. We felt they were fully in control and that we were fully informed. The sensitivity shown for our grieving in the shock of it all was very much valued. Anyone within cooee of Ringwood East who needs professional, compassionate vet care should be visiting here.

This is our local vet and feel very lucky to have such a great group of people taking care of our pets. From major surgery on our Beagle, to the usual injections and check ups and other surgeries on our other pets, and also the very sad times we have lost previous pets due to old age, the team at Ringwood East Vetcare has always been very caring and compassionate, everything is explained in detail and written info is supplied if necessary. It is lovely to know our pets are in such good hands.

Cudreh from Hastings
We tried this Vet when out of area recently and requiring annual check-up and vaccination for our dog. We loved how thoroughly our dog was checked over by one of the female vets. Rarely have vet checks ever been this professional. It was lovely that she took the time to fully explain various components regarding our pet's diet and behaviour, and not make us feel rushed. Her advice was sound and presented in a friendly, compassionate manner. It was a lovely visit to the Vet, and the only thing I regret is how far away we live from this business, as returning is not a viable option for animal emergencies. I highly recommend Ringwood East Vetcare to anyone lucky enough to live nearby these wonderful carers.

The staff are always caring and very professional. Over the years they have cared for our many animals: everything from annual check ups to various operations and sadly the deathe of two of our cats and one dog. They were very caring and compassionate at those difficult times.The services are reasonably priced, they are not trying to sell you extra products or services unnecessarily. There are great ancilliary services such as do it yourself hydro bath for our dog plus dog grooming and a cattery. Ivor and the team are terrific, I wouldn't hesitate recommending them to anyone.

Ringwood East vet are amazing! I have never been so happy with any kind of service in my life. The Clinic is clean and inviting and the staff are welcoming, friendly, highly knowledgeable and clearly love what they do. You are definitely treated like a valued client. Whist being at a vet with your animal isn't always the most pleasant of experiences the staff always make you (especially your pet) feel welcome and comfortable. My dog Scott loved going there and each time we went in he was treated like a king with lots of pats and liver treats. On days where I would walk him to the shops and we didn't even need to go into the vet he would still stand at the door wanting to go inside just to visit! On occasion I would give in to his beautiful big eyes and just go in with him so he can have a drink or I would buy him a treat for later.
Sadly my beloved Scotty passed away not too long ago, and the staff were very caring and supportive, myself and my family we were treated with compassion and understanding. I even received a beautiful sympathy card and poem in the mail. I was always very protective and caring of my dog and I trusted East Ringwood vet to take as much care with him as what I would. No matter where in Melbourne I end up or how many pets I end up with I know I will always make East Ringwood Vet â€œmyâ€ vet.

The clinic was warm, clean and friendly. The staff were kind and considerate and very helpful.
Our dogs loved being there, even our oldest dog who is 14 and has always been worried about going to the vet, had a good experience when being microchipped.

My cat was very peeing in the house when we left on her own. Ivor told me about Felliway, a pheremone treatment for cats. It worked so well, she is a different cat in all ways, much happier and not peeing at all. Thanks Ringwood Vetcare!

I have a cat with allergies. I had been taking him to another vet in the area for a long time. This other vet had told us that you couldn't test to determine what the allergies were but to keep him on a low allergy diet and treat the lesions with cortisone and other medications as they occurred.
My husband had been taking his cat to Ringwood East and one day when I was there with her I got talking to Dr. Javen about my allergic cat. He said that you could do testing to determine what the allergies were and then come up with a proper treatment plan. Therefore when my cat next had lesions I took him to Dr. Javen who referred him to the Melbourne Vetinary Specialist Centre. We are still in the middle of testing, but it has been determined that he doesn't have food allergies and therefore doesn't require special food.
During the allergy testing we had to have my cat on fortnightly antibiotic injections. Dr. Javen only charged us for the injection, not the consult.
We have now moved away from the area so are not with Ringwood East anymore, but I would very highly recommend this vet practice. All the staff were wonderful and very friendly.

Our cat went for a wander and was found down the road distressed and sore. The staff at Ringwood East vet were so kind to my cat and treated her with dignity. My cat had to spend the night there on a drip and the cage was spacious and comfortable.

My 8 year old boxer needed a lifesaving urgent operation. The staff and vet was so kind and helpful.The compassion and caring and that they showed to my dog was terrific.They operated that day which saved her. I highly recommend them to all animal lovers. It may be a business but they are there for the animals I highly recommend them to all animal lovers who need a very caring and excellent vet service.

My cat had a life threatening problem, I am a single parent and love animals, but could not afford to pay full cost. The owner of this establishment let me pay it off. He is now on a prescription diet (which is not cheap) bout he is family. Thanks you for all your help, including when I couldn't afford his food. Thanks Faith, Vanessa, Barb and Melinda. (sorry if I forgot a name!)
