Cronulla Veterinary Clinic was started by Dr John Kennedy and his wife Tricia, in 1980. They worked hard and built it up to a warm friendly family practice where patients and clients come first.

Jackie and Zali

Dr Jacqueline Bell joined the practice in 1998, and has worked side by side with John and Trish for 14 years. In April 2012 she took over the practice and continues to practise with the same care and compassion.

Our highly trained staff at Cronulla Veterinary Clinic want to work with you to keep your beloved pet as happy and healthy as possible. We aim to provide the best possible quality care in a supportive and friendly environment.  Cronulla Veterinary Clinic provides vet services in Cronulla that you can rely on.

Jackie graduated from Utrecht University (in the Netherlands) in 1994, then came to Australia with her Australian husband. She did her Overseas Skills Recognition exams in 1995 and started working as a vet early 1996. In 1998 she started practicing at Cronulla Veterinary Clinic, and loves this clinic with it’s friendly family atmosphere and lovely clients. On her days off she enjoys reading and spending time with husband Ramon and son Jordan, and walking her pet greyhound Mischa.
