About Para Hills Vet ClinicPara Hills Veterinary Clinic

Para Hills Veterinary Clinic is owned by Dr. Trudy Seidel. Since taking over the practice in 2007, Dr. Seidel has introduced many changes, including comprehensive pain relief protocols for all patients undergoing surgery, and invested in state-of-the-art technology for dental procedures, radiology, laboratory testing, anaesthetic monitoring and blood pressure. She is committed to serving the local community and providing pet owners like you with high-quality, affordable and personalized pet care.

At Para Hills Veterinary Clinic every patient and client is important to us. You are not just a name on a schedule or a file – you are a member of the community we serve, an individual with valued expectations, and a person who loves your pet. When you bring your beloved companion to our practice, you are being cared for by a family-owned and operated clinic, not a large, impersonal chain. We take the time to get to know you and create a personalized wellness plan for your pet based on his or her unique needs. We're here for both of you at every stage of your relationship.

Keeping Your Pet Healthy

You can help ensure a lifetime of wellness for your pet with Para Hill Veterinary Clinic's customized pet wellness care, which includes comprehensive examinations, vaccinations, preventive treatments and dental care. Identifying issues before they become serious is both the key to long-term good health and to keeping the lifetime cost of care as low as possible.

Along with our advanced conventional care, we also offer your pet acupuncture, an alternative, holistic approach that can restore the body's balance and treat a range of problems without drugs.

Practice Policies


The law in South Australia mandates that animals be under the direct care of a veterinarian to prescribe drugs. This means we are unable to prescribe any medications without seeing your pet and we are not able to give refills on prescriptions if we have not seen the animal recently.

Payment Policy

Payment in full is due upon completion of services. We accept VetPay, EFTPOS, credit cards, and cash as well as cheques from regular clients. If money is an issue please let us know and we will try to work out an option you can afford. If credit is needed we can help arrange credit through VetPay, or it can be applied for online.

Customer Satisfaction

Your satisfaction is very important to us. Should you feel any part of our service failed to meet your expectations, we encourage you to ring or write to our practice manager so we can make things right.
