The GS Vet Story...

‘Excellence With Heart’

Dr Jeannet Kessels began caring for the pets and families of Greater Springfield from her home in Camira over 25 years ago.

In 2006, when extra space and staffing was required, the Springfield Hospital (on Woodcrest Way) was established. Trademarked by the famous, bright-red truck parked noticeably out the front, it wasn’t long before the practice procured the reputation for being one of the most caring and professional veterinary hospitals in the area.

In 2015, Jeannet met the demand of the growing Greater Springfield community and opened a second hospital in Augustine Heights. Purpose built, and with every detail carefully considered it soon became the ‘go-to’ place for exceptional veterinary and emergency vet care in the area.

In 2021, the team opened the Eden’s Crossing Hospital in Redbank Plains. Located at 2/7005 Mount Juillerat Drive, this beautiful new hospital has plenty of parking, a light filled reception area, seperate cat and dog hospital wards, surgical theatre, dental suite and radiology wing.

In 2022, we closed the doors to our original Springfield Hospital and moved to a great new spot around the corner. Now at 5 Commercial Drive, Springfield, our new location (which opens on the 12th of May) provides more space, some offices for our management team and a wonderful community gathering space which we can’t wait to share with you.

 The business has undergone some pretty big changes. Recently we felt it was time to refresh our image, so we added some fun new curated art illustrations and colours to our brand palette, and created three new logos to represent our individual locations. And to keep up with our ever-growing client base, we have hired new staff across all departments. 

We share our staff across all three locations – so rest assured, wherever you choose to visit us, you’ll see a familiar face ready to care for your pet with ‘Excellence and Heart’. Just like it says on the tin. And it’s important to know that whilst we are doing big things, we haven’t forgotten that it’s the small things that matter most.

 Greater Springfield Veterinary is independently owned to this day. Our incredible team of 36 (and growing!) have an outstanding reputation.

And, honestly, we couldn’t be more proud.
