Sonza Veterinary Clinic was established in 1990 by Dr John Montgomery when he moved here after selling his home and veterinary clinic in Eden NSW. For over 30 years we have established a loyal clientele base many of whom came here in the early 90s and are still bringing their pets to us today. Our practice is located on our picturesque 50 acre property in Kowen ACT, which is on the Kings Highway between Queanbeyan and Bungendore (on the way to the coast).
Dr John is a highly experienced veterinarian having graduated with his Bachelor of Veterinary Science from Melbourne University in 1972. Medicine was in his blood, with his father ‘Monty’ Dr Ian Montgomery BVSc also being a veterinarian as well as Monty’s father (John’s grandfather) being a human physician.
We also have many other important people within our practice who without them none of it would be possible. This includes Gill, who has several qualifications in veterinary nursing, workplace training and assessment and equine studies. Gill is the practice manager and head nurse at Sonza. We also have our invaluable team of veterinary nurses and animal attendants who work tirelessly to provide the very best care for your pets.
We have tried to keep the practice relatively small to maintain that ‘country practice’ atmosphere. We believe in that personal touch and our clients appreciate that they get to see Dr John or Dr Hayden each time they come! We value each and every one of our clients and strive to establish strong relationships with them and their pets.
