Now known as Snowy Vets. Our mission is – Advocating the best for animals and their people. Providing our services from both our Cooma and Jindabyne facility with our staff rotating between the two clinics.

Our purpose built Cooma Clinic (R C Mesley Hospital) is recognised as an ASAVA Accredited Hospital of Excellence. We are equipped with a full complement of equipment for diagnosis and surgery of most small animal problems to help you and your pet.

Snowy Mountains Veterinary Group was founded in its current form, in July 2007. SMVG is the Pty Ltd company name of the business that controls the Cooma and Jindabyne Animal Hospitals. Prior to 2007, these were known as the Baron St Veterinary Clinic, and the Jindabyne Veterinary Clinic. The Baron St clinic had been running since the 1970’s, while the Jindabyne clinic was established in November 2004. In 2014, our new clinic in Cooma was opened, and we made the move from Baron St. The RC Mesley Animal Hospital incorporates top quality facilities and sustainable design principles to provide an earthy, natural and caring atmosphere for staff.

Mike Mesley is the principle of SnowyVets. He graduated in 2001, and has completed further training in Practice Management, Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal Medicine.

Snowy Vets upholds a reputation of providing a very high level of care to their patients and exceeding the expectations of their owners, providing holistic care in both a philosophical, and medicinal sense. With a strong dedication to advocating the very best, only vets and nurses equipped with exceptionally high standards of care, with a conviction to practice them, are employed at SnowyVets.
