About Us

Helping pets and their families live their best life

SASH is one of Australia's leading veterinary hospital networks, providing a broad range of specialist and emergency veterinary care for dogs, cats, and other companion animals.

At SASH, we believe that the highest standards in veterinary care are achieved when clinical expertise is delivered by compassionate, motivated people in a caring and supportive environment. This is embodied by the dedicated teams providing around the clock emergency care and a wide range of specialist referral services at our three hospitals, SASH Sydney, SASH Central Coast, and SASH Adelaide. 

Inspired by the special bond between pets and their families, we constantly strive to best serve the needs of our patients and the people who love and care for them.

At the heart of our approach is teamwork. Since many of the pets that come to us have complex needs, it often takes a whole team of highly qualified veterinarians working together across multiple disciplines to achieve the best outcome for an individual patient.

This in turn relies on the expert supportive care provided by our committed nursing and rehabilitation teams.

SASH stands for
Small Animal Specialist Hospital.

Our hospital is home to specialists who have had years of extra training and have passed additional exams to become highly skilled in their area of choice.

Working closely with their clinical colleagues, our experienced client care teams ensure that everyone who visits us feels welcome and well-informed. This focus on collaborative, integrated care of patients and their families is the hallmark of the SASH experience.

Continuing education, training and mentoring of our team members is integral to this philosophy. We place great value on nurturing our exceptional people and believe this enhances our capacity to care for others.

Fostering partnerships with referring veterinarians is another fundamental aspect of our collaborative team approach

When a pet comes to us for specialist care, communication with referring veterinarians takes place before, during and after the treatment provided at our hospitals. We serve as an extension of local veterinary clinics, with everyone working together in the shared care of pets and their families.

Since first opening our doors in 2007, we have pursued the vision of our founding partners to offer a multi-disciplinary service providing expertise across the spectrum of veterinary specialties.

Guided by a commitment to innovation and excellence, we have developed a comprehensive suite of services ranging from internal medicine to dermatology to surgery; state of the art diagnostics, including CT and MRI; pioneering rehabilitation facilities, such as underwater treadmills; and highly specialised therapeutics, including on-site radiation oncology and dialysis.

To meet the increasingly sophisticated needs of our patients, we have also enhanced our critical in-house support services, including anaesthesia and intensive care, and have welcomed on-site specialist radiologists to our team.

With further advances in technology and understanding, the depth and breadth of the services and facilities available at SASH will continue to evolve, in fulfilment of our purpose to help pets and their families live their best life.

While we are proud of our history of growth and development, this is only part of the story.

In striving to improve our clinical services, we have consistently maintained our focus on care and compassion. The experience that pets and families have when they visit SASH should be nothing shortof what we would hope for ourselves or our loved ones when seeking medical care. People from all over Australia bring their pets to SASH, and many veterinarians and nurses entrust their own pets to our care. We look forward to serving you too.
