Cannot fault Laurence with how he treated my cat. He was attentive and took the time to explain the medication thoroughly as well as her condition. Having her treated at home also greatly reduces the stress she feels when being transported to the vets. First Paw Mobile Vet is an invaluable service. Will not hesitate to call Laurence again when veterinary attention is needed.

What a great service! Laurence was thorough with his check up of my golden retriever. I couldn't recommend this service more for your pet as it took the stress out of going to the vet especially during this time when you can't be with them in the consultations room.

Laurence took amazing care of our little 11 week old pup - his love for animals really shows in his excellent service and attention to detail. Can't recommend him enough - if you're trying to make sure your puppy has a good first impression with a vet, this is it!

Wasn't sure what to expect with the mobile vet - but I thought it was worth a shot. Going to the vet used to be such an ordeal with 2 x adult rottweiler x french mastiffs - I would have to take them separately, and would be so nervous about whether there would be other pets in the small lobby, etc. In contrast, Dr Laurence came to our house (this was outside his normal area, but for a small fee didn't mind coming). He called in advance and took time to understand what my concerns were. He was very up front about any limitations that home visits offer (he obviously doesn't have all the testing and facilities of a normal vet). However - i was willing to give it a go. The day of the visit, we did one dog at a time in the carport (COVID-19), and he was very thorough with their examinations. He noticed issues my previous vet hadn't and was also was able to take some samples of some suspicious looking lumps (which he then sends away for fast testing), and meant I didn't have to get this done in-house at a vet. I liked the fact he was very detailed - didn't shrug off any of my concerns. Dr Laurence has a positive attitude and a really laid-back, friendly demeanour. He was good with the dogs, and very generous with his time. He followed up to see how the dogs were going, and called to explain the results a few days later. Would definitely recommend First Paw...general health checks can be done in the ease of your own home - and if your pets need follow up care in-house at a vet clinic, he'll advise on where to go/and what to request.

Laurence was great with my 3 month old puppy and 8 year old dog! Very professional and answered all my questions... and the doggos loved him :)
02:36 18 Apr 20
Laurance is a really nice and professional vet. He let me know more about my pets and gave me some useful advice. Moreover, he is punctual and be patient on my questions. So I will highly recommend to choose Laurance to be your pet’s vet.

I got my puppy during the COVID-19 distancing rules, and was pleased to find First Paw Mobile Vet could come to my house so I could be with my puppy while he got his exam and vaccination. They were diligent about wearing a mask & gloves, hand washing, keeping distance from me as much as possible, and keeping the time in my home short, to minimise risk to me and my household, as well as the community. Dr Laurence was thorough, professional and friendly.
12:18 15 Apr 20
Super easy to get vet check during covid19 lockdown Friendly and knowledgeable And good photographer as well! Thank you Laurence
00:51 08 Apr 20
Lorence was very helpful and went to a great length to be able to care for my fury friend Jerry. His gentleness and live for animals was seen and his passionate about what he does, would definitely call lorence out again and would recommend his care.
22:28 05 Apr 20
Professional and caring, First Paw Mobile Vet organised an appointment quickly and ensured I had everything I needed both in terms of medical care and information to handle my cat's issue.
22:15 05 Apr 20
100% recommend, on time, caring and took a personal interest, even went above and beyond to reach out the next day to check up on how the cat was doing after a simple yearly injection..
05:08 05 Apr 20
First time using First Paw Vet and we were super happy!Laurence was so patient with our cheeky dog who doesn't like check ups! He was informative and professional and we love that he can come to us.
07:51 28 Mar 20
Dr Laurence was absolutely wonderful with my 16.2 year old Labrador. We have used his service 3 times now and I can't highly recommend him enough. He was very gentle, caring and thorough and went above and beyond with #SpencerTheDog's mobility issues. Thank you once again!
04:09 28 Mar 20
Laurence was awesome! Great communication and very easy to deal with. Will definitely be using his services again!
21:43 17 Mar 20
Dr Laurence was excellent with our 8 year old nervous cat. He clearly loves animals and took the time to get to know our cat and his history. He also provided detailed advice which was appreciated. Highly recommended.
09:13 17 Mar 20
Thank you so much for your kind and thoughtful assistance today. We could not have asked for more.
08:07 16 Mar 20
Booking process is all online and simple to follow. The vet came on time and was very professional. Service is super convenient especially if you don't have a car in the city. Prices are fair for the service provided.
07:22 12 Mar 20
Dr Laurence came to our house earlier this week to treat our Staffy x who had been unwell for a few days. He arrived before time and greeted us all so warmly and with such a calm demeanour. He took the time to listen to the history as he sat on the floor giving our usually highly anxious dog a chance to relax and approach Laurence in his own time. Laurence was extremely knowledgable and took the time to explain everything in detail, making sure every base was covered. He works closely with the local vet clinics and is careful to present the options. He even discovered a dental issue with our dog that had previously gone unnoticed so that was a bonus of the examination. Vet visits are usually highly stressful for us and our dog so this was such a positive experience, one that we would highly recommend for any pet owner. We will be using First Paw Mobile Vet Service from now on and have already recommended Laurence to friends and neighbours.
05:53 05 Mar 20
Communicative, friendly (to both hoomans and pups), and knowledgeable. We will definitely be seeing him again!
09:08 24 Feb 20
It was lovely meeting Laurence today. He was very thorough, knowledgeable and kind and we will definitely be using this service again. Going to the vet is quite stressful for Bobby, thank you Laurence for making this stress free. Highly recommend, 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Recently, in a time of need for my elderly German Shepherd, I discovered Dr Laurence. Dr Laurence proved to be quite an incredible young man, someone who took the time to understand the situation completely, who with his calm and honest presence gave me the confidence and trust in him that his treatment for my canine friend would be most appropriate. I can attest to the fact that his understanding of the situation and decisive, careful yet no fuss action meant my dog’s difficult problem has completely healed and her spirits are revived. I do not hesitate to recommend DrLaurence, not only for his skill as a vet but his considerate kindness, not only to my dog but extended to myself. I thought, after he left what an unusual and amazing experience – very streamlined, as if we had been visited by a light-footed superhero. I recommend him highly.
19:56 15 Feb 20
Laurence paid our cat Toto a visit last week and he was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was very thorough in explanation of what his skin related issues may be and organised a course of medication. He then followed up to see how Toto was going after a few days of being on the medication. I highly recommend First Paw, particularly with pets that don’t travel particularly well.
04:32 14 Feb 20
Dr Laurence was great, he spent time really getting to know my 8 week old puppy, examining and playing with him. He also took care to talk me through some common conditions of the breed, plus best practice for training. He’s been back since and received a very warm welcome from our pup. Highly recommend.
09:13 12 Feb 20
Our pup couldn’t be happier after First Paw came and checked him out in his new home. First Paw all the way!
07:49 12 Feb 20
Laurence from First Paw was brilliant and I would totally recommend this service. I have a 13 year old Keeshond who has a medical history that would rival most humans and therefore it is almost impossible to get her into the car and to the vets. Laurence was the 14th mobile vet I had called ( none of the others would service my area no matter how ill my pet was). Laurence promptly returned my call and after asking questions he had a fairly good idea of what he was dealing with. Happy to attend the same day and after hours, Laurence called to confirm he was on his way and came spot on the allotted time. He carefully checked Keera’s vitals first and then went on to clean and medicate what turned out to be an open wound that was weeping and bleeding. Laurence explained everything step of the procedure as he went and Keera was calm throughout the entire experience. Add to this, I also received a follow up text the next day to see how the patient was doing. I have used other home vets previously and none have been as thorough and genuinely concerned for Keera’s wellbeing.I would highly recommended and definitely use this service again!!
10:04 28 Jan 20
Very highly recommended! Super friendly vet with great advice - really took the time to explain everything and was extremely thorough. And best of all, the dog loved him. Would absolutely use again! Thanks from Chips!
09:37 28 Jan 20
Laurence is an excellent vet and his mobile visit to my cat Ruby was 100% better than having to take her to a vet. Highly recommend! Less stress for all concerned.
11:07 26 Jan 20
Laurence visited our home when we were desperate. We had a suddenly anxious and aggressive cat - there is no way we could get near her to take her anywhere. He visited the same evening I rang and after taking a detailed history recommended a course of action that so far ( fingers crossed) is seeing my Kitty return to normal. I would have paid anything for help to settle my cat - his $99 visit was far less than I expected and cheaper than visiting my local vet.I couldn’t recommend him highly enough.Laura
07:34 22 Jan 20
Laurence was a very calm presence around my often skittish cat and provided helpful advice about dental care.
05:39 22 Jan 20
We have an extremely anxious dog so vet visits are really stressful for him. I was hoping First Paw mobile vet would be a better experience and it 100% was. Laurence was very patient, he took the time to listen to the concerns and to get a thorough background history. He was awesome with our dog, and basically accomplished more in 30 minutes than we've ever been able to do at a vet office. Laurence was also good at explaining everything and followed up the next day. I would highly recommend First Paw and definitely will be using them again!
05:31 15 Jan 20
The humorous and gentle doctor Laurence came to my home with a temperature of 37 degrees to give my kitten a physical examination and vaccination .He got along well with Momo and provided us prefect services. Thank him a lot🥳
02:26 13 Jan 20
Highly recommend Laurence. He was wonderful with my 2 cats, even though one of them was rather unhappy with the process. Great service, right on time, and took the time to explain everything thoroughly and answer our questions. Will definitely get him back for the next annual check-up!
06:04 28 Nov 19
Great experience! Handy not having to leave the house. Recommend Laurence, really knows his stuff.
09:50 25 Nov 19
Highly recommend First Paw, my cat was so much calmer having a vet attend to her at home. I think she even liked Laurence despite all the prodding and poking as he has a nice caring demeanour which put her (and her distressed human - me) at ease. Thank you!
04:11 24 Nov 19
Professional, prompt and positive. Our dog Bill is ageing, getting a bit territorial and not so vet-clinic friendly. First Paw visiting him in his own environment was a great experience for us all. Thank you Lawrence for your thorough consultation, gentle manner and helpful advice. Will be recommending First Paw to all our dog walking mates.
19:08 20 Nov 19
Laurance! Thanks for making it easy to go to the vet! Nahla is 100% better and we didn’t even have to Leave the house! Highly recommend!
22:00 19 Nov 19
Laurence was amazing, highly recommend first paw - great option for pets that freak out going to the vet, a home visit is so convenient!
08:40 16 Nov 19
The mobile VET was fantastic! Found this to be super convenient as we found ourselves constantly postponing getting to the VET for our cats' standard vaccinations and boosters. Laurence was on time and courteous and explained everything really well....he even talked us through a few different treatment options (without adding any pressure). Archie and Willow say thank you! Will be using again.
23:43 14 Nov 19
If there were more stars to give they would most certainly be given. Dr Laurence quickly became little Charlotte's favourite vet ever. Every detail, from booking to confirmation and actual home visit was exceptional. And all at a reasonable cost. We highly recommend First Paw
14:04 14 Nov 19
He was amazing with my puppy Sasha! He knows what he’s doing and explained everything to me so well, he answered all my questions. He went the extra mile and came to my area which is definitely worth the extra fee charge! He’s fantastic and I don’t know how to describe it! 10/10
06:45 10 Nov 19
Great to save the stress of pet carriers and unfamiliar surroundings. Also nice to have more than one pet treated and given great care. Highly recommended!
07:30 09 Nov 19
Wonderful experience. Lots of knowledge, convinence and very comprehensive! I'm definitely recommending!!
10:43 01 Nov 19
Highly recommend this business. Laurence won over my cautious cats and gave them a thorough health check - all in the convenience of our own home. Laurence explained everything and inspired confidence in his expertise. The online booking was easy and I appreciated the reminders and updates. 😺😺
08:45 30 Oct 19
Thank you Laurence.. came outside the service area and was real attentive the whole time with us and our dog. Will definitely be using First Paw again
05:48 14 Oct 19
Loved the convenience! Dr Laurence was very helpful, I have a newborn and both my newborn and wife were sick and we needed to take Rocco to the Vet and instead we got Laurence to come and asisst without having to leave the house. He was very knowledgeable and helpful. Will tell friends.
06:01 12 Oct 19
Laurence was fantastic with our very reserved puppy.The consultation was very informative. The convenience of having a vet come out with a busy work schedule is fabulous, will be recommending your service to friends & familyThankyou!
07:02 27 Sep 19
Usually going to the vet is a stress inducing episode but our cat Nola was so well behaved at home with Laurence with First Paw - we will be using these guys again!
03:43 21 Sep 19
The doctors are very friendly and professional. He has given us a lot of suggestion. That's my first time book mobile vet. It’s very convenient and at an affordable price.
08:18 21 Aug 19
Great service, very attentive to the pets.
00:55 14 Aug 19
We found First Paw Mobile Vet on Instagram and booked our Burmese kitten in to have a check up and his third vaccination. Laurence happily answered all of our Cat questions, checked our boy Banjo over and administered his vaccinations all in the comfort of our home. Being a busy working family with three kids, this was the perfect solution for us to take the stress out of getting in to a clinc. I'd highly recommend getting in touch with Laurence to any Melbourne pet owner!
08:53 12 Aug 19
We loved having Dr.Laurence visit! So thorough and informative, and coming to us when my wife is 30 weeks pregnant was a God send, and will be so handy after the baby arrives. Thank you!!
07:47 26 Jul 19
I booked an appointment with First Paw to come and vaccinate my rather anxious 10 year old Weimaraner Dempsey - Great experience all round !! Dempsey loved the vet and it really took away all the anxiety and pain of getting him to the vet - will definitely use First Paw again, he really knew his stuff and was so lovely to my dog!! Thanks First Paw!
02:33 12 Jul 19
A very friendly and gentle vet who came to my house to see my cats. The cats were much more relaxed during their exam than taking them to a clinic. Will defiantly use First Paw again.
00:58 09 Jul 19
Awesome vet! Great with Benji, did his vaccination and check up thoroughly, while maintaining his friendly smile the whole time. Benji loves him, and everything is soooo convenient for us! Thank you for coming over and did such a great job, will definitely come back for the next one.
10:57 02 Jul 19
Great experience and very convenient for us without having to leave the home. Highly recommended
11:55 29 May 19
Brilliant! Was able to get my dog Harry vaccinated without having to leave my house while working from home. Great guy who knows what he's doing, the convenience was just a bonus. Will use again, cheers!
