Our team participates in a lot of additional education and training. It keeps our staff confident in the knowledge that they’re among the best in the industry and allows them to pursue their passion and specialise in a particular area – ensuring your pets are healthy, happy and comfortable.
Mamma makes people feel good! She was left on our doorstep with her five babies in 2019. Initially timid and protective of her kittens, Mamma has amazed us with how she has matured into a confident girl. When not sleeping in the cupboard, she is very affectionate and always up for a game of “hide the computer screen” or doing somersaults to catch her feather on a stick. Mamma is also self-appointed taster of lunches and may find herself in need of a permanent weight loss program.
Kylie is the proud owner of Bedford-Dianella Vet Centre. With more than 20 years’ experience as a practising vet, she acquired the centre in 2004, having graduating from Murdoch University in 1994.
Kylie long harboured a dream to create a vet centre that provides an extensive range of veterinary services with qualified, caring staff who truly care about pets and their owners.
That dream is now her reality. Kylie’s encouragement of her team to foster a friendly rapport with pet owners and their pets, and to pursue their passion for veterinary care has paid dividends for the centre’s clients and pets.
When not at the centre, Kylie is busy looking after her family – human, four-legged and feathered – and likes being active on her family farm and enjoying classical music.

Sally is with us in a part-time capacity, working 2-3 days each week and whenever the other vets are studying or taking holidays.

During that time she helped set up S.A.F.E Busselton (Saving Animals From Euthanasia), where she was able to satisfy her love for re-homing animals.

Benefits of Choosing Our Team When You Need a Vet in Perth
We strive to provide our clients and their loving pets with as many benefits as possible to ensure they get the treatment they deserve with every visit. Here are a few of the benefits you and your pet will get to experience when you choose us as your Morley vet:
As a Noranda vet, we ensure you always get access to our team of highly experienced vets. Our availability helps not only uphold the best treatment, but it also means your cats and dogs will come to a team that understands how to make them feel at home. With years of experience behind each of our vets, your pets will feel right at home while they get the veterinary services they need.
We use only the most advanced diagnostic, anaesthetic, and surgical equipment, where appropriate. Your pets deserve the best when they need treatment, and we will never cut corners when it comes to their health and their treatments. Whether they are coming in for a routine check-up or for a mystery problem that has been causing them discomfort, we will get to the bottom of it.
Our business as a Yokine vet thrives on honesty. We understand that sometimes the news can be difficult, but we will always provide you with honest opinions, suggestions, and diagnostic results. You deserve to know what has been causing your pet discomfort, and you should always know precisely what your options are in these situations.
You can rest assured that you will receive every bit of information you need to make an informed decision every time you visit us.
Ensuring you can always take your pets to a reliable vet is a must in every pet owner’s life. Sometimes unexpected circumstances arise, and we need to take our pets to those who can help prevent problems from getting out of hand. The problem could be simple, but should it be a more significant issue, you will feel that much better knowing your pets are in capable hands that understand the intricacies of veterinary care. From our highly experienced teams to our advanced equipment and our foundation of honesty, your pets will get everything they need right here.
Services We Can Provide When You Need a Vet
We want to ensure that all our clients understand precisely how we can help them and what we can offer. Here is a short list of services to benefit your pets:
Whether you need a dog or cat vet in North Perth for dental services, we can do it. Just as we need to look after our teeth, it is important to look after the teeth of our pets. Studies have shown that around 70 percent of cats and dogs over the age of three have some form of dental disease. This problem can be better prevented with proper care from the owners and check-ups when necessary.
Signs of dental problems in your pets include bad breath, loose or missing teeth, sensitivity around the mouth when eating, bleeding or inflamed gums, excessive drooling or visible tartare on the surface of the teeth. An animal that displays changes in eating or chewing habits, and dull coats (especially so in cats, since dental problems often result in cats not grooming themselves sufficiently), is a sure sign of dental discomfort.
Our professionals can provide your dogs with the vaccinations they need to bolster their immune systems and ensure healthier lives. As a dog vet in North Perth, we can confidently say your puppies should receive their vaccinations at around six to eight weeks of age. We’ll administer an initial course of three injections given two weeks apart to ensure the best results. Vaccinations help against diseases such as Distemper, Hepatitis, Parvovirus, and Parainfluenza and Bordetella Bronchiseptica (more commonly known as ‘Kennel Cough’).
All our vaccines should provide protection for around three years, but your dogs should receive annual vaccinations against Kennel Cough. To help prevent unnecessary vaccinations, we offer ‘titre-testing’ that checks the immune system of the dog and tells us whether administration is necessary.
As a cat vet in the North suburbs of Perth, we also handle cat vaccinations. Approaches vary based on whether the cat is an indoor or outdoor cat, but the results aim to accomplish the same. Kittens can receive their vaccinations from six to eight weeks of age, and all cats should receive annual boosters to help protect against disease. These protect against Feline Herpesvirus and Feline Calicivirus (Cat Flu), Feline Infectious Enteritis, Feline Leukaemia Virus (FeLV), and Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) which causes cat AIDS. Please note that we highly recommend FIV protection for cats that will spend much time outside. You as the owner are not at risk, though, because FIV is not transmittable to humans.
We provide pet neutering – which we recommend you do before cats or dogs are six months old. Neutering your pets might seem almost a punishment, but the truth of the matter is there are thousands of stray pets all over the world who do not have homes. Neutering your pet is one way to prevent unwanted litters which would result in even more pets having to be put down because they lack homes.
Neutering also prevents cancers in the reproductive systems of your pets, stops the female heat cycles, prevents a potentially fatal infection of the womb called ‘pyometra’, and can prevent and stop male cats from spraying urine. If you need more information on neutering your cats or dogs, please do not hesitate to ask our vets and nurses.
