Happy Paws Veterinary Clinic is a privately owned small animal clinic located in the northern end of the Gold Coast, opened in 2017 by Dr Vanessa.

My why: Since graduating in 1999 I have worked in a variety of independently owned and corporate practices throughout Canada, UK and Australia. I dreamt of a clinic where 30 minute consultations would be considered standard in order to deliver exceptional service, be thorough and still have enough time to develop a relationship with the clients. A clinic where they embrace team culture based on respect and integrity, working alongside people who share a true passion for their job and enjoy coming to work, where mistakes were viewed as learning opportunities and feedback is welcomed. 7 years on, not only has this dream come true but we have become bigger and better with a recently completed expansion to the clinic! The expansion includes a separate cat entrance, waiting room, consult rooms and cat ward. A separate dental suite and a large imaging room.” – Dr Vannessa Escott
