About The Berwick Village Vet
The Berwick Village Vet, as it is now known, was formerly Berwick Village Animal Care. It has evolved from a small branch practice, to a full Veterinary clinic over many years with the last few years seeing a rapid improvement in the level of care and customer service offered at the Clinic. Dr Jeremy Jones is the practice principal, and he is committed to continually improving every aspect of the clinic, for the pets and their families.
The Berwick Village Vet focus is to offer top quality veterinary care, in a ‘Village’ feel veterinary practice. A clinic with a personal and friendly feel, where you and your pets can feel at home, and trust that the best possible efforts will be made to prevent possible health problems and treat any health concerns that arise. It is a firm belief that healthy pets means happy families!
Graduated from Massey University, worked in rural practice in Oxford, New Zealand for 2 years before working in Scotland and Wales for a year. Following this he moved to London and was offered a position managing a small animal clinic in London. Here he really expanded his expertise in both small animal medicine and surgery. In 2009 Jeremy returned to Melbourne and spent a year working in Melbourne’s Northern Suburbs before moving to Berwick. He joined the practice in late August 2010. Jeremy is strongly motivated to help the pets of Berwick, and he believes that a caring attitude is so important when trying to help pets through their health problems. Medicine and surgery are both interests and he plans to vigorously continue his professional development.
Jeremy loves being a part of the Berwick community, and is trying to give back to the community as much as possible. He has joined the Rotary Club of Berwick and loves being a part of this charitable organisation.
