Family Owned and Run

Family Pet Veterinary Clinic

Owned and operated by Dr Nick West, after graduating in 1972 from Sydney University with first class Honours in Vet Science. Nick started the O’Halloran Hill Veterinary Practice in 1976 and ran it for 12 years before he established the Mclaren Vale Veterinary Clinic in 1987. Five years later he opened the Coromandel Valley Vet Clinic incorporating both practices as Familypet Vet.

Nick lives in McLaren Vale with his family and still enjoys the challenges of General Practice after 37 years.
