To give our hard-working team some much-needed rest, Mivet will be closed from December 24, 2022 and will reopen on January 3, 2023. During this holiday period, we have partnered with VetCheck 24/7 to assist in delivering our ongoing care. Just contact our clinic on (02) 6914 9111 and a qualified vet nurse will be able to assist you.
From the whole team at Mivet, we wish you a safe and happy holiday and look forward to seeing you again in the New Year!
