About us

Servicing the beloved pets of the Wollongong & Illawarra region for over 40 years

At Dapto Veterinary Clinic, we’ve been fostering these relationships for more than four decades. We are very proud of the fact we have multi-generational clients and that we stay true to our core values of experience and excellence in veterinary care. The health of your pet is our first and most important priority!

Originally established in the 1970’s, Dapto Vet was initially located in Dapto Court. Rod Yeatman purchased the clinic in February 1980 and married the clinic’s long-time nurse Michelle. In 1985 the clinic moved to its current location at 164 Princes Highway Dapto, opposite the Ribbonwood Centre (access to the car park via Marshall St entry). In October 2020, after working with Rod at the clinic for almost 7 years, Shalini and her Fiancé Sath purchased Dapto Veterinary Clinic.

We are an independent, local family-owned, no BS Veterinary Clinic. We attract and retain high-quality, experienced team members that share our values. This enables us to continue to achieve the best health outcomes possible for all the beloved pets of the Illawarra.

We understand it’s important that you find a vet you can trust and establish a solid, ongoing relationship with. This ensures that you receive the best possible treatments and services catered to the needs of you and your pet.
