Lort Smith Animal Hospital North Melbourne is an iconic institution that has been serving the people and animals of Melbourne since 1936.

Today the organisation has come a long way from the humble beginnings, and is now the busiest not-for-profit animal hospital in Australia.

We offer a wide range of veterinary and emergency services to ensure the health and wellbeing of our beloved animals.

Learn more about our services.

Our next chapter is being written during 2022 as the North Melbourne Animal Hospital is undergoing significant redevelopment as we aim to become the leading centre of veterinary care excellence in Australia.
