Had my puppy's first consult with Laurence a week or so ago - highly recommend! I was expecting to just get a quick look at her, administer her vaccine and off to the next appointment. Instead he was super proactive about making sure Marceline has been set up properly and very attentively listened to the couple of concerns and questions I had. He made sure to address them very thoroughly and you can tell how much he cares about the well being of your animal companion.

Dr. Laurence delivers as advertised and then some. He has a genuine care for the well being of our fur baby and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

Laurence was wonderful with Max our dog. Everything you want in a vet listened to us was patient with Max who was in pain and followed up just as he said he would. Best recommendation Max thought he was great 😊
03:09 09 Oct 20
Dr Laurence is very professional, reliable vet. Reasonable price and good knowledge about everything. Really friendly with my two cats. Highly recommended to everyone!
03:20 05 Oct 20
The convenience of First Paw is next to none. My 10.5 year old Stanley dog hurt his back and was beside himself with anxiety from the pain. The last thing I wanted to do was put him in the car and take him to the vet, a place that makes him even more anxious! Finding Laurence at First Paw was my greatest discovery ever! Laurence was so calm, gentle and patient with Stanley. He took his time to assess the problem and explained everything we needed to do to achieve recovery. Stanley is back to his normal self and I couldn’t be happier with this service!

My English pointer hates going to the vet and the waiting room really stressed him out. Having a vet come to my home was super handy and my dog got along really well with the friendly and very thorough vet, Dr Laurence Gulifer. Highly recommend.

Nothing but good things to say about Laurence! He was responsive, reliable, super caring and very knowledgeable! Highly recommend and also really great value

My little fur baby is not a great car traveler, and with the current COVID climate, our vet's policy is she would have to wait in her carrier in the car at the vet prior to her appointment, so to save her anxiety levels (and mine) I decided to give First Paw a go when she needed a check over recently.I was so impressed with Laurence and his professionalism, caring nature and knowledge. He rang me from the car to get a full history on my kitty, and talked me through his process for when he came inside. I mentioned to him that our last vet told me I had very anxious kitten as she would shake and try to wriggle away from the vet every time we went. But not with Laurence, he came into the home with his friendly nature and my little one went right up to him for a sniff over and rarely left the area he was in the whole time. He gave her his full attention for more than the allotted time, left me a sample that he thought might help, and followed up a few days later to see how she was going.Overall, the whole process was so easy and convenient, I'll definitely be using Laurence & First Paw again and would highly recommend him.

I was very impressed with Laurence. He was very thorough upon arrival and gentle with my highly anxious fur child. He has great knowledge, is very thoughtful and caring, is very personable and provided some good advice. I will definitely be seeking his services in the future.
10:29 21 Sep 20
I'm glad we found First Paw; Dr Laurence was prompt, friendly and professional. He called before the appointment to get some background on our kitten, happily answered all our questions and ended up giving us more than the allotted time which is in no way expected, but showed that he actually cares about the pet he's treating. Will definitely use his service again - living in the city it's really convenient to have a vet visit your home for general check ups.
04:44 21 Sep 20
I can't recommend these guys enough! I didn't know a mobile vet service existed until a friend recommended them and I am totally sold. I have a large anxious rescue dog and going to the vet has always been a pain. Something about the rooms at the vet and all the smells freaks my dog out. The service was punctual, way more thorough than some vets I've been to, friendly, well priced and so convenient. I even got a follow up phone call to see how the prescribed treatment was progressing a few days later. Highly recommend!
07:21 18 Sep 20
My experience matches much of the other comments here. Great service, really convenient and easy to organise. We had a consultation via phone before the health check up which ensured as little stress as possible for my pet. I do not have a car therefore the traveling service was ideal - especially during lockdown. Laurence was able to prescribe a treatment there and then and followed up via text to make sure everything was improving which was much appreciated. I would highly recommend this service.
07:06 16 Sep 20
What a great service, especially during lockdown! Before coming in, we had a consultation phone call where Laurence really took the time to answer all of my questions, as I’m a new pet owner. During the appointment, which was a general health checkup for my cat, he was very thorough and explained each step. Highly recommend!
06:07 14 Sep 20
Laurence came at a time of need for I and my puppy. The service was quick, courteous and my puppy was comfortable around the vet. The service is recommended especially when you want an in home care instead of trips to and from the vet.
10:02 07 Sep 20
Laurence was a pleasure to deal with and service top end. Only took one visit but I won't be looking anywhere else for any vetinary needs for our puppy!

Vet Laurence was so kind and professional in treating my nervous cat Daisy for a suspect UTI. Really fast turn around as well and was very gentle and caring with Daisy. Such a great service , much less stress for animals. Thanks again Laurence:) Daisy is feeling much better now. Will definitely use first paw again when needed in future
05:29 31 Aug 20
Awesome service provided by veterinarian, Laurence, during the stage 4 COVID-19 lockdown.We started to notice that our border collie was having some issues related to his rear-end and our cat hat been scratching at his face near his ear. We didn't want to deal with the logistics and risk of transporting both pets and also all the additional measures required due to the lockdown at our regular clinic.We setup an online appointment via the website and Laurence arrived right at the scheduled appointment time. We did a 15-minute phone consultation before Laurence entered the property.Laurence was very thorough with the examination and also provided a full general health check on our pets.Very kind and considerate and talked us through all the examinations and provided a lot of background on what was happening, also checking in a few days later.Really lifted the bar beyond what we were used to with our other highly-rated and regarded local clinic, would definitely use the service again without hesitation.
09:16 21 Aug 20
Wealth of knowledge from Laurence and really appreciated the follow up messages/advise.Daisy my 10 week old puppy had her second vaccination with him and she absolutely loved him. She was completely at ease with her check up and injection.Daisy is excited for her upcoming final injection and it makes it so much easier from the comfort of your home.
04:29 21 Aug 20
Laurence was great especially dealing with my German Shepard. Highly recommended!
02:39 18 Aug 20
Nelson my 5yr old 60kg Belgium Shepherd was in obvious pain continual crying followed by screeching when he would try to stand up, bloated stomach - nothing made sense we thought Nelson was dying right in front of us. The feeling of hopelessness not knowing how to help NelsonIn walks LaurenceCut a long story short Nelson just got home from his walk - his never been fitter and healthierLaurence is a gun
06:06 16 Aug 20
Laurence and Erin were wonderful at a time that was very difficult for us. They arrived when they said they would and treated both Cooper, our 16 year old Labrador and ourselves with respect and kindness. Laurence explained everything he was going to do and stepped back when we needed time with Cooper before he performed the euthanasia. He spoke gently to Cooper and to us. He made an experience we were all dreading so much more comfortable. We can’t thank him and Erin enough for their compassion and professionalism. I would highly recommend First Paw to anyone.
08:30 14 Aug 20
Bella, my dog, and I would like to heartily recommend the First Paw mobile vet service. An appointment was arranged easily and Laurence, the fabulous vet arrived promptly. He was wonderful, thorough, professional and incredibly sensitive to both Bella’s and my needs. I was absolutely delighted with every aspect of the service and will be accessing First Paws again in the future.
07:56 10 Aug 20
Thanks for your prompt response. I'm very happy with the service. The vet was nice and gentle with my cat. They take very serious the appointment. We spent around 30 minutes detailing the symptoms by phone and then he approached to treated her. Taking caution by the COVID 19 crisis. I truly recommend and I'll be contact them again if something happens.
05:40 09 Aug 20
Laurence is a wonderful vet & when i had a dilemma regarding my new puppy needing next vacc, he was the only vet that delivered on his promise of care. He has a lovely way about him & made my Chihuahua puppy 'Dobby', feel very calm. 'Dobby' had only recently arrived all the way from Queensland & the thought of being in a veterinary clinic for me, would've been too stressful. Traumer still lingers from my last dog aged 13, dying in my arms at another clinic. This was a joy & well woth it. Calm pooch, calm owner, great vet.Thank you Laurence
10:45 03 Aug 20
Laurence was very thorough and caring and my cats were very calm when being handled by him. I would recommend First Paw Mobile Vet to anyone 🐈🐾
21:59 31 Jul 20
We had a fantastic experience with First Paw Mobile Vet when our large dog developed an eye infection.Dr Lawrence was super professional yet personal and took great care to make both humans and animal comfortable. He was delicate and very knowledgeable, and not having to leave ourhour was a great bonus.I would highly recommend this vet.
10:15 30 Jul 20
Laurence was brilliant - being pandemic times, he made sure to limit the amount of time spent in the apartment by having a phone chat prior to coming up. Very professional, knowledgeable and super friendly, even though Roxy wasn’t the happiest after getting her vaccination, I’m sure she was very glad to avoid the car trip to the vet!Such an easy process of booking, made the whole experience wonderful.
06:58 30 Jul 20
Laurence was very through and caring. He was respectful of my dogs attitude to strangers and in particulary vets without neglecting him.He asked lots of question to be able to understand my dogs issues. Happy how the experience went as there was no stressful scenes trying to get my dog to a vet.Also checked on my elderly cats and didn't seem distressed by the experience. Overall very happy fur family thank you
06:10 30 Jul 20
Dr Laurence is an experienced professional vet. Had really great experience with him. My cats get well treatment. Highly recommended :)
04:13 30 Jul 20
Laurence was professional, comprehensive and knowledgeable. He was available at short notice and provided good follow-up advice.
05:36 29 Jul 20
Laurence was awesome. My cat, Muse, who was adopted from the RSCPA started to have a bit of nausea. Laurence was able to come to us after 6pm, (during the COVID lockdowns as well) to give Muse a check up. Text message follow ups are also really personable. Muse seemed to warm up to a vet rather quickly and was much more relaxed at home. Will be using Laurence for future check ups!
01:36 28 Jul 20
Dr. Laurence was really professional and amiable. The service was so convenient and great I could rely on him to be punctual and comprehensive. Would highly recommend.
08:25 27 Jul 20
Lawrence was amazing! On time, efficient and gave me so much useful information regarding health of my cat and what I can do to assist her in the future. I will definitely be using First Paw in the future and would recommend anyone in the CBD area to use Lawrence as their vet!
01:52 22 Jul 20
Laurence was brilliant with Barkley, my stag hound cross. Barkley gets very excited around opinionated small dogs so trips to the vet are a bit of a nightmare. It was such a relief to get seen at home.Thanks so much.
23:57 21 Jul 20
Can’t express enough how great Vet Laurence is - he’s incredibly thorough, caring, knowledgeable and really takes the time to explain everything to you. His online booking platform is also incredibly seamless - I booked a phone consultation on the day of and paid with PayPal - took about 2 minutes.My partner and I were both saying we wish he was our doctor, as the level of care is far superior to any GP we’ve ever had! 😂 all in all a great experience and we will continue to use Laurence as our primary Vet for our little Chips.
09:40 14 Jul 20
We booked last minute on a Friday night and Dr Laurence was here exactly on time Saturday morning. We had just adopted our very skittish cat and Dr Laurence handled him with such care. I really appreciated the follow up texts a few day later. I will only be using First Paw in future for the convenience and affordability (not much more than I've paid for in office visits which can be traumatic for both pet and owner). I highly recommend Dr Laurence!
09:07 13 Jul 20
My little doggy "George" needed a doctor and I'm new to Melbourne and wasn't sure where to go. Dr Laurence came to the rescue and was very professional and thorough. He even texted to check up on George the day after. Dr Laurence shows that extra level of care that my furry little guy deserves. Thank You First Paw :)
07:54 08 Jul 20
Laurence was very nice and friendly. The kids loved him, specially for a first visit. So he will be our regular vet now 😊
12:42 06 Jul 20
Laurence was great !!! I chose him because he had all 5 star reviews...now I understand why. He was thorough, gentle & so caring to our large sore dog & was genuinely excited when the treatment worked. He'll be our regular vet from now on !!!
11:11 02 Jul 20
Great Vet. Reliable, accountable, kind and professional. Highly recommended.
20:42 30 Jun 20
Fantastic service. Dr L really cares.
22:23 29 Jun 20
Dr. Laurence responds to his messages/calls super quick making it easy to book a checkup for my 2 new cats.He gave me lost of advice and tips on how to keep them in top health, and seems really knowledgeable.It was incredibly convenient for me as the cats are quite timid, and it seems that they were more comfortable as the checkup was in an environment they were semi-familiar with.Appreciate the work! Thanks!
00:46 28 Jun 20
00:41 26 Jun 20
Dr Laurence is very professional and did thorough checks for my dog Bagel. The home visit service is really convenient too! Thanks again!
02:05 23 Jun 20
Loved the First Paw Mobile Vet service. We have two cats that get quite anxious in car rides, so we decided to try a mobile vet and loved the experience. Laurence was very thorough and was great at taking me through the components of the check up and next step. Would definitely recommend.
01:18 23 Jun 20
Dr Lawrence was incredibly thorough. He explained everything in a manner that was easy to understand and answered all of my questions. He gave really helpful insight into what the future care of my doggo might look like.I highly recommend First Paw Mobile Vet, and will be using them again in the future.
23:09 22 Jun 20
I had Lawrence, and he was great! Gave great advise, was easy to understand. Would highly recommend him. Always keeps in contact with you even after the appointment to check up on things.

Dr. Laurence and his professional, empathetic and calming nature has become an instant friend to our two dogs. Aside from his professionalism, punctuality and amazing vet knowledge he is a naturally endearing person who made our 14 year old lab feel at ease while he thoroughly checked her out, and engaged with our children and us as if we had known him forever. The trauma of trying to get an ageing Lab with bad legs into a 4wd to go to the vet is horrible, but having Laurence come to us for a highly reasonable fee has made such a difference to us. Sadly there will come a time in the future that we will have to farewell our old girl and it brings peace of mind to my family that we have Laurence to go through this painful time with. We can't recommend him highly enough and wish we had found him sooner.
