Our purpose is to make our world a happier place through the love of pets.

Our Animal Referral & Emergency Network is Australia’s largest veterinary speciality and emergency network. We provide the highest quality emergency and specialist veterinary care to pets.

The Animal Referral & Emergency Network is part of the Greencross Pet Wellness Company, Australia’s leading integrated veterinary healthcare provider. Our family of pet wellness brands includes Petbarn (with more than 200 pet retail stores), Greencross Vets (with more than 150 clinics) and other specialty brands, such as pathology service Vepalabs and pet crematoriums PetsEternal and Petrest. We are passionate about enriching the lives of pets and the people who love and care for them.


Our Network

Petbarn Foundation

At the Greencross Pet Wellness Company, we’re committed to giving back to the community through the Petbarn Foundation, the charitable arm of our company.

With the help of the community, the Petbarn Foundation has supported pet adoptions and animal rescues, assisted pet owners experiencing homelessness or domestic violence, donated pet food and supplies, and much, much more. We are proud to say that since its founding in 2012, the Petbarn Foundation has donated more than $24 million to animal charities across the country.

Greencross Vets

All Greencross Vets practices employ enthusiastic vets, nurses and receptionists who share in the goal of providing the best possible health care for their patients.

We are part of a national organisation, which means we have more to offer your pet – whatever they need, whenever they need it. Our practices are run and managed by a local team of dedicated animal lovers who are available to help at every step and give you reliable answers and the best solutions for your pet’s individual needs.

We pride ourselves on team selection and internal training programs focusing on continued education. All Greencross Vets clinics follow a strict accreditation program designed to ensure you and your pet always receive the highest standard of care and a large range of quality pet healthcare services.

Petbarn and more than 800 Greencross Vets work together (with a promise) to care for all pets as if they were our own. Parenting a pet is about taking care of their health and safety with preventative care routines, products and services. We’re always by your side to help, tapping into our Greencross Vets network for vet visits, vaccinations and dental care to help them look and feel great!

We believe the more we play, the better we bond! That’s why we have all the best toys for your pet’s busy life, designed to keep them stimulated and physically active as they run, jump, claw, swim and chew!

We know, more than anyone, a little training goes a long way to making pets and their parents happier for life. Let us help you take the lead with all the positive reinforcements – like treats, leads and harnesses – needed to establish good habits. And all new puppy parents out there should ask us about our Puppy School. 


At the end of the day, creating a comfortable and safe environment is one of the most important jobs of a pet parent. Rest assured, we provide all the comfort they need, both inside and outside the home, to relax, curl up and dream about catching the postman… And maybe wake up to a haircut and blow-dry – just for good measure.


To all the pet parents of Australia, here’s everything you’ll ever need to keep your pet healthy and happy for life – all under one woof!
