Our Green Business Credentials (Leaving a small pawprint!)

Veterinary clinics are not traditionally associated with eco principles. Often a large amount of wastage is involved in medical practice, as a result of single-use products being necessary such as needles and syringes . Many veterinary clinics rely on a plethora of toxic environments, with numerous drugs being handed out under the guise of ‘prevention’ or ‘treatment’.

The Natural Vets at Forest Glen on the Sunshine Coast are determined to forge a different path, one conducive to health and healing in the workplace, for animals, their guardians, and the dedicated staff attending to them.


In a practical sense this means we do a number of things differently at The Natural Vets:

  • We treat animals using primarily natural methods, and use products from companies that have excellent quality assurance in place
  • We do not use any products or merchandise that we consider damaging to the earth’s crucial ecosystems, and instead offer sustainable alternative
  • We promote a wholefoods, organic diet for companion pets
  • We use only filtered drinking water both for the humans and the pets we see
  • We are solar-powered
  • We have chosen low-VOC paints and flooring materials
  • We have retained existing large windows to let sunlight and fresh air in
  • We have a composting system in place so that all organic food waste can be returned to the earth
  • We use non-toxic cleaning products wherever possible
  • We are striving to be a paperless workplace, utilising email and immediate data entry for our record-keeping, invoicing and reminder systems
  • We have a daily staff huddle where we share a green smoothie or herbal tea replenishment
