Welcome to the Dr Paws Family

We are excited to offer you a new style of ‘fear free’ veterinary care


We firmly believe that owners are the key to the health and happiness of their pets. We want to help foster this bond and work with you both to provide the best all-encompassing healthcare we can. From watching puppies and kittens thrive into adulthood, and then adults as they move into their senior years, we’re excited to be here with you every step of the way.

We have worked hard to gain certification as the first entire team of ‘fear free’ certified professionals in Sydney. This is a new standard of veterinary care, where we look at the physical health of your pet, but equally importantly at their emotional health during their veterinary visits.

Our team is backed up by visiting veterinary specialists on a case-by-case basis, allowing us to bring you the highest level of veterinary expertise combined with the convenience and consistency of staying in our hospital.

We are excited to meet you and be part of your journey with you are your entire fur family!

Cat with vet nurses in North Ryde


We practice Fear Free Vet Visits so that your fur child can feel more comfortable during their visit or stay with us. This begins from the moment they come into the clinic to the moment they are heading home with you.

  • Separate dog and cat consulting rooms
  • Relaxing pheromone sprays in consult rooms

  • Toys and treats in consult rooms

  • Extended consult times for every visit


We have one simple mission: to deliver the best vet care we possible can to the pets of North Ryde, East Ryde, Macquarie Park, West Pymble, Marsfield, Eastwood, Deniston, West Ryde, Ryde, Epping Gordon and Gladesville!

We work hard to continue to assess our approach to vet care, ensuring that we can always look to offer you the most up to date treatment and care.

Our pet care philosophy is that pet owners are the key to their pet’s health. We are here to help you on that journey by offering our advice, diagnoses and treatments. As such, we believe good communication is essential and will work hard to ensure that we are on the same page as you every step of the way.

We are committed to continue to offer you the best vet care we can in North Ryde and beyond. This means having a focus on ongoing staff and team training and being open to your feedback. We love hearing from our fur parents, so please always feel free to let us know how you you think we are doing and what we could do to be even better!

As a veterinary team, we have come up with the following values that we strive to live by: treat every animal like family, be consistent in delivering a high level of care; show loyalty to each other and our clients; and to practice with passion and compassion.
