Small Beginnings

Animal Medical Services (AMS) Veterinary Hospitals was founded in 1992 by the husband & wife team of Dr Andrew Eaton and Veterinary Nurse Eilla Eaton starting with a single veterinary hospital in Kingsford.

The original hospital in Kingsford has now been providing animal care to the local community of Sydney for over 50 years.

From these humble beginnings we have now grown to a group of fully equipped practices with a team of staff who possess a wealth of experience.

In 2013 Doctor Michael Stephen became a partner. He has brought additional experience and expertise to the AMS team.

In 2015, Doctor Cameron Fay also became a partner and Clinical Director at our new Marrickville Vet Hospital.

We feel very privileged to have been entrusted with the care of your pets and proud to be able to say we that we have now treated over 35,000 patients.

See what our Customers say…

For the last 22 years our dogs and cats have been patients at AMS, Although through the years our pets Shandy, Simba and Sheba have passed away, we were really happy and satisfied with the care and treatment they received. Kahlua is our current dog and she is receiving excellent care at Alexandria Vets’.Testimonial from Shirley and Sue

We were approached from the staff at AMS because they were in urgent need of a blood donor and knew Pearl to be a young, healthy, large dog which meant she had lots of blood! She had to be lightly sedated to have the blood taken and then was bouncing around again within the hour. It was a really quick and easy process and I knew that Pearl was in good hands.’Testimonial from Pearl’s owners Ken and TR

Frankie first came to AMS for just a bit of sneezing but due to the thoroughness and diligent care of the Vets there, Frankie was quickly diagnosed with lung cancer and there was no delay in starting him on chemotherapy. The staff are not only good and what they do but are great people as well. I wouldn’t take my pets anywhere else!’Testimonial from Jill with her cat Frankie
