About NCVS

Established in 2006, North Coast Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre is dedicated to serving the needs of Queensland Veterinarians and their clients, offering specialist surgical and referral-only veterinary services in medicine, dentistry, ophthalmology and physiotherapy, at the only dedicated facility of its kind north of Brisbane.

North Coast Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre (NCVS) provides comprehensive and first class care in the disciplines of orthopaedic surgery (including minimally invasive techniques), soft tissue surgery, internal medicine, oncology (cancer), dentistry, ophthalmology, medical imaging as well as physiotherapy and rehabilitation. .

NCVS occasionally performs elective mobile surgery at various practices around Queensland based on location, individual cases and the requirement for post-surgery aftercare.  As we believe all patients deserve the very best we are very selective as to which cases we consider appropriate candidates.

There are no other specialist offers this service North of Brisbane.


All patients at North Coast Veterinary Specialist and Referral Centre are assessed and treated on an individual basis.  There is no ‘one fits all’ treatment plan.  However, treatment can vary from conservative management with supportive therapy, through to complex procedures and surgeries, requiring expertise from multiple disciplines, followed by specialised nursing care, intensive aftercare and rehabilitation.  This multidisciplinary approach is well recognised and we believe believe every patient deserves every chance to have their condition improved, resolved (if humanly possible) and hopefully restoration of a normal quality of life.

Specialist and Cutting Edge Veterinary Services

A veterinary specialist is equivalent to that of a human specialist in that they have completed a rigorous training program under the guidance of qualified specialists. They have then studied for, and successfully passed their qualifying exams. They usually have years of experience and decision-making in advanced and complex procedures that non-qualified practitioners do not possess. It is this proficiency and expertise that your vet and you have entrusted to us.
