Kyabram Veterinary Clinic is a true mixed practice.  There is a loyal and growing small animal clientele and an expanding number of equine clients. Our cattle vets service an extensive dairy community.

The clinic strives to consistently maintain the best practice procedures that we have in place and our culture is to build and share skills in a positive and enjoyable work environment.

Kyabram is located in a large rural centre in the middle of a rich irrigation district in the Goulburn River Valley and offers a wide range of sporting and social activities.  The Murray River and all its attractions are just a short drive away.  Melbourne is only 2.5 hours’ drive.
