Who We Are & Why We Do What We Do

Bentons Road Vet Clinic, Mt Martha, opened our doors in April of 2015, with Dr Kelly Halls as the sole practitioner. From these early days, our focus has always been to practice ethical medicine and promote true pet health. This philosophy has evolved over time to now be the main prerogative of the practice.Since 2015, the practice has seen exponential growth however we have remained dedicated to providing a supportive and stress free environment for all our staff.  Being a family friendly practice, this workforce is contributed to by many part time veterinarians and support staff, allowing actual work-life balance to be achievable.

The clinic upholds a reputation of providing a very high level of care and exceptional customer service, as evidenced by our ever-growing and geographically distanced client base. Our approach fosters great trust with our clients, who more readily accept our advice and recommendations.  This enables our vets exceptional opportunities to provide necessary surgical, medical and complementary care to our clients and their pets.
