About Us


Mount Isa Veterinary Surgery provides professional care and surgery for small animals.

We are a family business run by husband and wife team, Dr Len Fulham and Sandra Fulham who offer advice and care to ensure your pet lives a long, happy and healthy life.

Established in 1974, our Mount Isa veterinary practice provides vaccinations, parasite control, desexing, ophthalmology, dental care as well as general and orthopaedic surgery.
