“I travelled from the Gold Coast to take my 11 year old poodle to see Randal at 3rd Avenue vet surgery after being referred by my sister. I’m so glad I did because it was well worth the trip. Our Winnie was so relaxed with Randal and the other vet and vet nurse, he doesn’t usually like it at all very much. The surgery is really welcoming with beautiful polished floor boards and when we need to see a vet again the trip will be a pleasure. I must add that the cost was considerably less compared to other quotes. It felt like visiting a real country vet who you can tell loves what he does and genuinely loves animals. I was really very impressed, thank you all.“

“I found both Randall & Cass the most caring vets who gave my dog Gemma a new lease on life,if it wasn’t for them I don’t think we would of had such a positive outcome as they have truly changed her life for the better,also their veterinary nurse Emma has always been very so kind & helpful, I say thumbs up for the wonderful staff at Third Avenue Veterinary Surgery & would recommend them to anyone who has a pet,again thank you so much.”

“Our dog had surgery in another clinic, but on a Friday night we noticed there was still one stitch remaining after removal. With the long weekend upon us, we were keen to get out as soon as possible. We rang Randal at 9am the following morning and despite him not being our usual vet, he said he could take it out right away. We popped down to the clinic, stitch removed, all the while he was talking gently to our dog and giving her treats. Less than 10 minutes later it was all over at no charge. If you want a vet who cares about your pet as much as you, go to Third Avenue.”

“After spending a couple years in Townsville, experiencing very hit and miss attitudes in vet clinics, it was nice to walk into a practice where people treat you like a human and are professional in handling of a working dog. I am still dumbfounded at how inexpensive you. So glad I don’t have to vet shop. Thank you.”

“I take my dog and 2 cats here. I have used 2 vets, Randal and Cass. They both seem to genuinely care and they explained / talked to me about some problems our furry friends had and we’ve had great results. 🙂 The nurses have explained a whole bunch of stuff for us too which has been super helpful. So yeah, they’re our vets now.”

“We are with Dr Randal since a few years now and each time with several HUGE problems- he was the best Vet we could find. Teeth extractions – no problems. Every year checks, huge and severe operation for Grisu our Springer Spaniel was operated with a real bad knee and arthritis- now hopping around like a young bunny again.
Without Dr Randal and Team and also a affordable price structure- we could have done this operations- thanks again.”

“I travel from Banyo/ Virginia as the vet near me is overpriced and not particularly helpful. Dr Randall and his team are amazing, helpful and very affordable.
I recommend them to everyone!
“Dr Holly is just amazing. And the clinic is lovely and clean. Great pricing too.
Really enjoy coming here. And the dogs do to. Well done team.“

“After having tried two other local vets and having repeat negative experiences, I was at a loss when thankfully a family member recommended Third Ave Vet. The experience was night and day to what we had, had in the past. The entire team are warm and friendly and made us comfortable from start to finish, answering all our questions with patience and understanding. All the staff treated our girl with the respect you want your beloved pet treated with. The passion Dr Randal has for his profession is evident and greatly appreciated. We are thrilled to know we now have a team of experts to help us look after our girl. This was also the first time in 9 years we’ve ever been to a Vet and felt like we got our money’s worth. Keep up the great work team.”

“We first met Dr Randal when we adopted our cats and later our dog Jack. Through lots of ups and the downs including saving one of the cats and rebuilding our dog’s broken knee, Randal has always been someone we could trust with our cherished furry family. My kids enjoy taking their pets to the vet and have learnt a lot when they visit the surgery. He engages the children and is very kind and very professional.”
– Liza Kennedy
“Randal & his team saved our cat’s life. Having moved from another vet due to mismanagement, Randal gave us excellent advice, which from having a strong medical background, we knew was ethical, evidence based and correct. From following Randal’s advice & his clinical management plan, our cat is still with us today & is pain free. He cares so much about his pet patients that he gave our cat all of his checkups & they were plentiful at fortnightly for 2 months, totally complimentary. Thanks third avenue vet. You are excellent.”

“Dear Randal, You have no idea how much it meant to us to have you here at our home at our moment of need with Digger. I cannot thank you enough for coming so quickly and that you knew Digger so, made the whole experience easier and personal. Again, you are our guardian angel. With overwhelming gratitude.”
– The Oxley Family.
“Hi to all at Third Avenue, We greatly value your service. We have been with Third Ave since Simon began the surgery and was greatly appreciative of the compassionate and caring way he helped us manage our pets’ health and well-being. We were especially grateful when he went above and beyond the call of duty when 2 of our pets were diagnosed with terminal diseases. It was with much sadness that we learnt that he had to leave the practice. However, Randall has been fabulous and we have grown to trust his professionalism and we have no hesitation in recommending your services. Love the girls at reception who are always exceptional in their service and manner. Thanks and Merry Christmas to you all – will see you in 2016!”
