If you own a dog or cat, it is essential to ensure their teeth and gums receive the optimal care. To achieve this, regular dental checkups are strongly recommended. Fortunately, at Colin Dry & Associates Veterinary Clinic, we have all your Taree pet dental care needs covered under one roof. Teeth cleaning and polishing is provided by our staff. We can also provide teeth extractions/removals, applying IV to ensure your pet is sedated during the procedure.


Desexing your pet:

  • Will make them less likely to roam, fight with other animals and develop anti-social behaviour
  • Will reduce their risk of getting cancer and contracting other dangerous diseases
  • Will eliminate the possibility of unwanted litters

At Colin Dry & Associates Veterinary Clinic in Taree, we offer desexing services for dogs and cats. We can also desex rabbits and ferrets on request. IV anaesthesia is administered for all our spay and neutering procedures.

Fauna Rescue

At Colin Dry & Associates, we are happy to treat injured or sick wildlife brought to our clinic. We will examine the animal, provide the service required, and arrange for a carer to bring it to a safe are where it can be rehabilitated and released.

Our partner in animal rescue and rehabilitation is FAWNA NSW INC, an organisation comprised of volunteer workers passionate about helping animals return safely to the wild.


By implanting a tiny microchip just under your pet's skin, your pet can be easily traced back to you should it ever become lost. All you have to do is provide your contact details to us and we will ensure they are entered into our database. We can also update contact details at later dates. Both dogs and cats can be microchipped by our professionals at a very affordable price.
