Visiting North Melbourne? Here's what to know
We are rebuilding the Lort Smith Animal Hospital at Villiers Street in 2022 to create a modern hospital with new medical equipment and extended facilities to care for the thousands of pets that visit us every year.
The new animal hospital, with its fear free design, will provide a calmer environment for your pet and you during your visit.
During the re-building, there is limited on-site parking – as we have to create room in the hospital car park for our hardworking building team and the occasional crane.
There is on-street parking in Villiers Street.
Short term parking is available in Vale Street – for example, if you are picking up medication or pet food.
Please allow extra time before your appointment and come to The Hub next to the Hospital on Villiers Street to check in.
For accidents and emergencies – come straight to the Hospital. The hospital car park is for emergency only.
We apologies for the inconvenience.Find out more
