This month…

Free DENTAL CHECK with one of our qualified nurses!


The Facts:

Just like us, pets need dental care every day.  

Ignoring the condition of your pet’s mouth can lead to dental disease, tooth loss and other serious problems.

Dental disease is more common in smaller breeds of dogs and certain breeds of cats as their teeth are often overcrowded.

Dental disease is more common as pets grow older.  Research suggests that this is a result of a lifetime of disease accumulation... not just as a result of ‘getting older’.


Signs of dental disease:

• Bad breath

• Yellow-brown crust on teeth

• Bleeding gums

• Changes in chewing or eating habits

• Tooth loss

• Abnormal drooling

Once your pet displays the above warning signs, serious dental disease may already be present.  Don’t wait for the signs to appear – book an appointment for an oral check with your vet today.


Ask our friendly staff for more information and make an appointment today!

Welcome... Atherton!

Tropical Vets is excited to announce the purchase of Ready Vet in Atherton from Matt and Cat Robinson.  As of the 1st of April 2021, we have taken over the day to day running of the clinic in Atherton.  And do not worry, all the staff you are used to seeing are still there to offer you the same friendly service that they always have.

Over the coming months we are planning on enhancing the Veterinary equipment within the practice.  We will be upgrading the radiography system, the in-house blood laboratory and the dental equipment. The practice computer system will be integrated with our other clinics and will have added functions like SMS reminders for appointments, vaccinations and important preventative medications.

Dr Graham Lauridsen, a senior vet and one of the Directors of Tropical Vets, is relocating to Atherton to help oversee that transition and to work within the clinic in Atherton.  He and his wife are in the process of purchasing a house in Atherton and making the move from Tully.

Graham is a true mixed-animal vet, having experience in treating all manner of animals, both large and small.  He looks forward to moving into the community of the Atherton Tablelands and meeting the Ready Vet clients.

For best health, animals in the Tropical North need to be vaccinated...

Do you sometimes wonder if there’s an easier way to remember the timing of your pet’s vaccinations, worming treatment and tick / flea prevention?

Free up your mind for more exciting things by being in the Tropical Vets database!
We’ll send out reminders for your upcoming appointments and all of their ongoing health care needs, in the way that you prefer… text? Easy! Email? No worries! 

Have a chat with us at your next appointment, or call us today, to make sure your animal and contact details are current... and that they are fully vaccination-protected for their age and situation.



...An important message about COVID-19...


Your local vet, Tropical Vets, has always taken the health of our clients (and naturally, their animals!), employees, visitors and community seriously.

We understand this is a very difficult and stressful time for everybody but for Tropical Vets to continue our care for your animals; for their regular or emergency surgery, to be available after-hours as well as our professional care day to day at each clinic, we need to take care of our veterinarian and nurse staff, too!

The risk: if a staff member is diagnosed with COVID-19 then our clinic would be put into quarantine and this would prevent us from providing any care to our patients from this clinic.


In the interest of public health, we ask that you please do not enter our clinic if:

  • You have returned from an interstate hotspot or overseas within the last 14 days.
  • You have knowingly been in contact with someone who has been diagnosed with Coronavirus (COVID-19) or has returned from an interstate hotspot or overseas within the last 14 days; or
  • You have a fever or flu-like symptoms.

If you are feeling unwell or want to better protect your health, and do not wish to enter our clinic, PLEASE let us know over the phone as you make your appointment, so we can make arrangements to meet you at your car / in the car park.

We still want to see, treat and care for your pet; it just means we need to take some extra precautions.

We can also discuss consultation options for any existing clients that have been quarantined or are high risk.

By all working together we WILL be able to continue to offer you the top quality care you are accustomed to from our family-run business.

Thank you for your support and understanding.
