At Vets on Parker, we understand the importance of regular health checks and preventive measures. We also know that sometimes you need assistance that may not require a veterinarian. Nurse consultations provide an excellent opportunity to discuss any concerns or queries about your pet’s health or behaviour. 

Our skilled veterinary nurses can assist with a variety of tasks and work closely with our veterinarians to deliver comprehensive care for your pet.

At Vets on Parker, we offer a wide range of nurse consultation services, including:

  • Nail trims for cats, dogs, rabbits, guinea pigs, and birds
  • Anal gland expression
  • Advice and administration of parasite control
  • Monthly arthritis treatment injections
  • Monthly allergy treatment injections
  • Laser therapy
  • Nutritional advice consultations
  • Weight loss consultations
  • Post-operative follow-up visits

To schedule a nurse consultation for your pet, call us at 9850 1355 or book your appointment online. At Vets on Parker, we are committed to providing your pet with the highest standard of attention and expertise in veterinary care.


Veterinary nurses cannot prescribe medication. However, they can administer prescribed medications, provide advice on how to give medication at home and assist with follow-up care. For any new prescriptions or changes in treatment, a veterinarian will need to see your pet.

Coverage for nurse consultations varies depending on your pet’s insurance policy. We recommend checking with your insurance provider to understand what services are included.

Our staff can provide detailed invoices and documentation to assist with your insurance claims. For pets insured through GapOnly partners, we can process your claim during your visit, so you’ll only need to cover the gap amount.

If it becomes apparent during the nurse’s consultation that your pet needs to see a veterinarian, we can usually arrange an appointment on the same day or as soon as possible. Our nurses work closely with our veterinarians to ensure pets receive the appropriate care promptly.

  • Whilst most owners understand the impact of their pet's oral health on their general health and quality of life, many may still need clarification on the practical ways to achieve excellent pet dental hygiene.
