Windaroo Veterinary Surgery Animal Hospital

Windaroo Animal Hospital is a dynamic, family owned business that commenced servicing the Logan community and their beloved pets in 2008.

Owner and veterinarian Dr. Lisa Roberts BVSc, MACVSc and her entire professional team, are passionate animal enthusiasts who each pride themselves on offering you, personal service.

Our hospital offers clients thorough examinations for simple routine health checks and vaccinations, and are able to present you with solutions when managing ongoing or complicated problems. Often it’s simply the support and understanding from our team that is needed when making decisions regarding your pets health.

Windaroo Animal Hospital is working to safely continue to serve the local community with the highest standard of Veterinary Care

Recently, the Federal Department of Agriculture & Fisheries passed legislation to provide veterinarians with Essential Service status – meaning that regardless of lockdowns and mandatory closures, we can continue to operate. Please continue to watch this site for updates in our service delivery throughout this period.

We’re here when you need us, but please, wherever possible, stay at home.
