The veterinary practice was established in Innisfail by Dr Anthony Kahler in 1984. Since then the practice has grown to the size it is now, consisting of three vets, four nurses, and two kennel hands.

We moved to a purpose built Veterinary Hospital in Innisfail in April 2011. Our hospital provides first class facilities including an intensive care area, purpose built diagnostic imaging department, in-house pathology, sterile surgical suite and dedicated cat and dog wards.

Our vets are up to speed with the latest advances in veterinary medicine and surgery. They continually attend professional development seminars and workshops to ensure our patients get the best care possible. Each patient will receive a thorough clinical exam and you will be given the best advice from our caring and experienced veterinarians.

Our nursing staff are all highly experienced and are constantly undertaking studies towards enhancing their veterinary nursing skills. The fact that they have undertaken this study of their own accord is an indication of their commitment to providing outstanding care and service to our patients and clients.

Coral Coast Veterinary Services feels it is important to give back to our wonderful community. We regularly present PetPep presentations at schools to help ensure our community's future pet owners have the knowledge to enable them to be responsible and caring pet owners. Work experience students from both school and university regularly stalk our corridors, learning what it takes to work in this exciting and rewarding industry.
