New England Veterinary Services is a locally owned business dedicated to providing optimum care for pets and animals in the Armidale and surrounding areas. Lucy Ducat (BVSc) and Emma Billing (BVSc) joined together to form the newest addition to the Armidale veterinary market, with the aim of providing personal and caring care to pets and owners alike, as well as providing prompt and efficient treatment for livestock.
NEVS works with the local RSPCA and Companion Animal Shelters to ensure animals to be rehomed are in the best health possible, and we also provide support and volunteer our services and time to these organisations in an effort to create awareness for responsible pet ownership. NEVS also provides care for many injured wildlife cases, working with NTWC and WIRES volunteers to create a recovered and releasable animal as often as we can.
NEVS also has a strong interest in the rising trend of stress-free veterinary care, and knows bringing your pet to the vet can be stressful for both owner and pet! We take extra measures to create a more relaxed and positive environment for your pet at each visit to create positive associations which means a happier visit for everyone involved. We do this through separate cat and dog consult and hospital rooms, stress-free handling methods, and just taking that extra bit of time to make your pet feel more comfortable. We are also currently working towards Cat Friendly Accreditation for the hospital with the International Society of Feline Medicine (ISFM).
