The Sheffield Veterinary Clinic has been operating since 1973 and has been owned by Dr. Michael Reilly since 2005. The Sheffield area has undergone substantial change over the past 20 years and so has the clinic. A predominantly rural clinic initially, the Sheffield Veterinary Clinic has evolved into a well equipped medical and surgical facility for small animals whilst still servicing the local farming industry.





We believe that putting your pet at ease, taking a thorough history, examining your pet, discussing the findings and organising the treatment required takes longer than 10 minutes. For this reason examinations are typically 30 minutes in length. Of course there is a range of pricing available if the exam is shorter than expected.



We like to think that our surgery is one of the best equipped in Tasmania.

We boast a modern, fully serviced anaesthetic machine, a heated table with heated gas tubing to help keep your pet warm, a full parameter monitor, electro-surgical equipment and an extensive range of instrumentation for all types of surgery.

More importantly, we have staff that are trained and confident in its use.

Emergency Care


We provide a 24/7 emergency service for your animals. If you ring the clinic after hours, a recorded message will give you the number of the on-call veterinarian.

Of course... additional fees will apply.

(Really! As I was writing this at 11pm on Boxing Day, the phone rang and I was called to the clinic.)

Dental Care


Dental disease is one of the modern diseases of dogs fed a processed diet. The best course of action is prevention with a natural diet but when this is not possible we can offer advice about other preventative methods. And if the teeth and gums get beyond the help of these, we offer dental prophies and corrective surgery.



We see too many lost dogs to take microchipping of your pet lightly. Dogs need to be microchipped from 6 months of age* and we feel that during desexing is an ideal time for this small procedure. To this end, we offer a discount on the microchip price if you have it done at the same time as your pet is desexed.

We also firmly believe that hunting and working dogs should be microchipped. These dogs are simply too valuable to lose!

*Micro-chipping of dogs became mandatory in Tasmania in 2011. 



If you own an animal it should be vaccinated. It is simply that important!

We provide a variety of vaccination options for dogs and cats and will discuss the best alternative for your pet.

We also carry tetanus and strangles vaccines for horses and can provide you with advice and vaccinations for cattle, sheep, goats and alpacas (and anything we have forgotten to mention) also. 


We realise that we can't compete with some of the professional groomers out there... So we get one up here :)

Margie does a wonderful job and has tamed some animals with patience and kind words that the owners were sure would need sedating.

Simply ring the clinic for the next available time.
