D r Neville Japp established the hospital in 1977, as a purpose-built facility which became the very first accredited (Australian Small Animal Veterinary Association) small animal hospital.

Dr. Ian Japp is now one of the practice owners and senior veterinary surgeons. Ian oversaw a major renovation in 2004 which doubled the size of the hospital, and included a new surgery, pharmacy, radiology room, isolation ward, and separate dog and cat wards. A horse crush was also built under cover behind the clinic, and the back lawn provides an excellent exercise yard and occasional large animal operating theatre for minor procedures.
Dr.Katherine Overs is the newest partner in the practice, and is now full time after working with Dr Japp since 2009.
