John Roy Stewart bought the original site at 15-17 Botany Street in 1900. Its primary use at that time was as a market garden. His family had been Veterinary Surgeons in Australia since 1886. The Stewart family were known for their passion for veterinary care and 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.


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.


Vetmed Northbridge and Vetmed West Lindfield were established. The addition of these new clinics enabled the provision of a broader range of services, utilising the experience of multiple veterinarians and para veterinary professionals. Additionally, more advanced equipment and techniques could be performed at a more affordable and accessible level.


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


We pride ourselves on our exceptional level of Veterinary Training an expertise. Recent enhancements to our service offering include Laparoscopic surgery, Digital radiology including dental and more.
