Perth Cat Hospital is seeking an experienced, enthusiastic feline practitioner to join our team. Our practice is only 4 years old and since we opened, we have continued to grow and flourish. We are proud to be the first and only feline dedicated practice in the sunny city of Perth.

Our core values are Enthusiasm, Integrity, Compassion and Excellence and our entire team embody this in everything that we do. We focus on a team approach, and support and care for each other, our clients, and our patients.
Our hospital has a separate sterile surgery, a dedicated dental theatre complete with digital dental x-rays, spacious treatment room, boarding and hospital facilities with Therian cat condos and an isolation ward.

Best place to take your cats too! I took my kitties Princess and Smokey here and the care and attention they got from the vet and the vet nurses was amazing! Top quality service from people who actually care about your cat and want the best for them. They explain every detail thoroughly so you are never left wondering why and how. Will forever be thankful for their service – Barbara Badrov (Google Review)
