“Saving one pet will not change the world, but for that one pet, the world will change forever”  

Dr John, Dr Hayden and the dedicated team offer high quality and compassionate veterinary care for our client’s pets.  All being pet owners ourselves, we appreciate the importance of pets in our lives and that quality treatment is of utmost importance.

We are equipped a wide range of medical, surgical and diagnostic facilities, including:

  • digital radiography
  • ultrasonography
  • dental radiography
  • in-house haematology and biochemistry blood testing
  • in-house progesterone blood testing
  • in-house urinalysis

We offer surgery every weekday.  Most procedures are day surgery with your pet ready to leave by mid-afternoon.  Our surgical facilities are extensive, with full anaesthetic monitoring equipment and skilled nurses to monitor the anaesthetic.  We offer pre-anaesthetic blood tests (highly recommended for older or unwell patients) and fluid therapy for all procedures.

Dr John occasionally offers house visits and surgery pick up/drop off for clients that require this service (such as the elderly and those who don’t have a driver’s license).  He is available in Canberra, Queanbeyan, Bungendore and the surrounding region by request.

Sonza Veterinary Clinic supports the ethical and conscientious breeding of dogs, cats and horses, and take pride in offering veterinary services to local breeders and the dog show community.
