About us

Ready Vet is a family-owned veterinary surgery on the Atherton Tablelands offering a tailored and personal approach to veterinary care. It is the brainchild of ‘Matt and Cat’ Robinson who dreamt, designed and launched the business in 2013. While Matt and Cat initially imagined Ready Vet as a quiet, sole vet practice, their fresh take on the pet healthcare industry quickly earned them a reputation for attentive and affordable, quality veterinary care and from there the practice quickly grew.

Ready Vet is best known for principal veterinarian Dr Matt’s straight-shooting, down-to-earth and approachable bedside manner which brings regular clients from all over the Tablelands and as far as Mareeba, Dimbulah, Georgetown, Karumba and Cairns. Dr Matt’s advanced surgical skills and impeccable track record for safe anaesthesia attract many clients wanting the best possible care for their pets. Dr Matt’s unparalleled dedication to his patients has seen him sleep at work for days on end to care for hospitalised pets throughout the night. His wife, vet nurse Cat, has been known to read them bedtime stories.

The team’s efforts were recognised in 2016 when ThreeBestRated.com.au named Ready Vet as the number one animal hospital in the Cairns region!
