Celebrating 35 years of providing veterinary care in the community, Baldivis Vet will this weekend open its doors to the public for its third annual open day.

Baldivis Vet is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Head receptionist and marketing co-coordinator Kylie Soanes said reaching 35 years was a significant milestone and the open day would be a way to “celebrate with the community”.

“This is a chance for people to see behind the scenes,” she said.

The open day will include native animals such as koalas, dingos, bearded dragons and snakes, and also a farrier display. Rescue organisations will also be present, including local organisation Don’t Go Astray, which helps find homes for stray and abandoned animals.

“This is a chance for the community to come and also meet the vets who work here, and there will be tours inside the centre,” Ms Soanes said.

Owner Rob Davies said he established the practice in 1984 to create a one-stop service where people did not have to leave town for pet treatment.

The Baldivis Vet open day will be held from 10am-4pm on March 31.
