Our Beginnings

VetMed started as Randwick Veterinary Hospital in 1900. We have evolved from a  small vet clinic located in Randwick, to the state of art VetMed Hospitals you see today in Randwick, Northbridge and Lindfield. All three locations around Sydney offer services ranging from preventative and general veterinary care, to innovative specialised surgical procedures, boarding and grooming.

1900: Origins

John Roy Stewart bought the original site at 15-17 Botany Street. Its primary use was as a market garden. His family has been Veterinary Surgeons in Australia since 1886. The Stewart family were the drivers of setting up the Veterinary Science Faculty at Sydney University. They also set up the first Pharmaceutical manufacturer in Australia – “Bio” that made some of the first Australian vaccines.

1996: VetMed Reborn

Andrew Herron and Marc Simpson bought the business “Randwick Veterinary Hospital” from Max Patton. From these early beginnings it has developed into one of the longest standing and premier Veterinary hospitals in Sydney.

2008: 2005-2008

Vetmed Northbridge and Vetmed West
were established. The aim of these new clinic was to provide a better a broader range of services utilixing the experience of multiple veterinarians and para veterinary professionals and enabling more advanced equipment and techniques to be performed at a more affordable and accessible General Practitioner Level.

2009: We're on the move!

Moved Vetmed Randwick from original site at Botany Street to current site. The old site was becoming very run down having served for over 100 Years. The new site was chosen because of its central location, ample parking and ability to completely modernise the premises thus enabling state of the act facilities.
