The mobile vet service with Dr Laurence was very professional, thoughtful and informative and I am very satisfied with the service. He was very gentle with my puppy, and my dog seems very happy too. The communication is also very clear starting from arrival until done. I would recommend him if you guys are looking for a mobile service for your pet 😊

I have to say, I was very impressed with First Paw and more to the point Lawrence. I made the initial appointment and then I couldn't meet that time, but spoke with First Paw to see if I could get Lawrence out to my home and Lawrence called me and we set a time. I am always a little bit apprehensive with taking my two cats to a vet as they get incredibly scared and timid, well Lawrence was absolutely awesome with my two cats, he explained everything very clearly, was fantastic with them, and overall a wonderful experience for all. I would highly recommend Lawrence from First Paw, it takes away the stress of leaving your home with anxious cats! Thanks First Paw, awesome job!
Laurence was incredibly kind, and very helpful when he came to check on my cat! He had lots of great advice and my cat felt so much better after getting the necessary injection & medication :)

We had such a great experience with Dr. Laurence when it came to vaccinating our 4 year old dog, who was too anxious and stressed to set foot in our regular vet clinic after multiple attempts. Laurence showed patience, kindness and persistence throughout his home visit and was able to get the job done efficiently. We highly recommend his services and will definitely be using First Paw again in the future!

This was the best service! I wanted to save Tiger the stress of a Vet visit and Laurence was sensational. Booking online was seamless and he rings and does all the history beforehand so he can just concentrate on your pet when he arrives. Complete confidence in Firstpaw! I will be telling all my friends about it.

After her battle with cancer proved to be too much, our beautiful border collie ’ River’ was sent to her eternal place of rest. Peter from First Paw provided the most amazing, goodbye experience to help with this forever life changing experience for our family. Thankyou Peter for your kindness, kind words, understanding & amazing empathy. We will remember Rivers final goodbye with much love thanks to you. Bless you for everything… The Hollowood family ❤️

The absolute best doctor for your baby. He was so friendly and helpful. So knowledgeable and super thorough with his diagnosis. He was so gentle to my baby girl Duri and his prices were honestly so good!! While other money hungry clinics were charging 200 dollars for a 5 min consultation, he went out of his ways to call before entering my house to ask about her temperament, her diet, her history,.. EVERYTHING!! He didn’t even mind coming into my bathroom do all the examinations because of how anxious Duri was. Literal god sent. Could not recommend more!! Soooo convenient in terms of not having to travel anywhere but also reduces the stress of being in a carrier for my cat. She got noticeably better after just two days too!! I honestly cannot thank Dr. Laurence enough- you can really tell he does this job because he actually cares! ❤️

Dr Laurence is fantastic! Highly recommend. We have a very anxious cat who hates going to an external vet. Dr Laurence was so patient and gentle with Oscar, and really took the time to listen and explain. We are moving interstate shortly and I was very worried about transporting Oscar. Dr Laurence provided excellent advice and really eased my concerns. Pricing is also very competitive, especially for the convenience of a home visit. Thanks Dr Laurence!

Lawrence is a wonderful vet. He called me before coming into my home and asked a lot of questions about my cat Jimmi. So he is really thorough, which I really appreciate. Unfortunately Jimmi isn't a fan of strangers or strange people touching her (same 😆) But with some sedation on her second visit, he managed to do a thorough examination and vaccination. And also gave me some great advice on what to look for when finding a vet to do her dental work. Will definitely be using his services for any future issues with Jimmi.

Dr Laurence is a truly caring vet, and I recommend him to anyone who needs a vet. He saved my cat so much pain and gave me peace of mind. Thank you.
Sarah Sheppard
It’s been so fantastic having Laurence make home visits to my 12 year Westie Norman. Norman usually hates going to the vet and Laurence’s visits take out all of the anxiety of check/ups for him (and me). Laurence is extremely thorough and professional and works hard to put Norman at ease. Highly recommended.
fiona kriaris
Thank you so much Laurence. A really great at-home service that was easy and comfortable for both Chloe and myself. Having a Staffy that is anxious always made it difficult to actually go to the VET, yet this was an excellent and thorough solution. Amazing value and care!

    Prepare for your vet's visit

    A quiet room or confined area outdoors is ideal for examination, for small dogs a table or bench is very helpful. For anxious cats, please confine them to a carrier cage, the bathroom or an enclosed room where they can’t run and hide. Please allow a half hour window for us to arrive in case of potential traffic/parking delays. Oh and don’t forget to let us know if your pet has any behaviour quirks we should know about, for safety sake 🙂
