Dr Catherine is a University of Sydney graduate with a passion for working with fur-parents to keep their pet healthy and prevent problems occurring later down the track. With decades of experience caring for local pets, Dr Catherine's calm and professional manner combined with her thorough and caring approach is a hit with our two and four-legged clients.
After graduating from Sydney Uni, Dr Hamish's first job was in rural NSW working with large animals before he headed to England to work as a small animal vet, including a stint on the RSPCA TV show. He's been caring for local pets since 1997 and has a passion for diagnosing tricky medical problems and performing soft tissue surgery.
Became concerned about my dog after hours and found it so helpful to be able to make an appointment online for the following day at a convenient time. Easy parking, appointment on time. Thorough care shown to my dog. Friendly and professional care from all level of staff at Blakehurst Vet. - 20/04/22
Excellent care for my dog Alfie on a busy morning and they still managed to fit us in. Quick appointment to address the ingestion of a foreign object although they were technically booked up.
Within 30 min. Alfie had thankfully vomited up something that was huge, gross and unidentifiable, he had managed to eat it at the beach. Thank you for saving him from possible surgery down the track. - 27/03/22
We cannot thank the team at Blakehurst Vet enough for always taking such good care of our pets! We know they are always in the best hands there :) We love that you have helped our sick pets until they are back to full health and continue to check in to see how they are doing. - 10/03/22
We recently boarded our cats at Blakehurst Vet and received excellent and friendly feedback with great results from the experience. Our Cats were in exceptional condition on our arrival back from holiday. I can now go away with no hesitation while they are looked after by this facility. - 28/02/22
As a cat owner, I highly recommend this vet. Our first visit to this animal hospital is because my cat got an acute eye problem. The vet here is very professional and my cat gets fully well within 3 days.And we had the vaccination here. The vet did a general check before vaccinating my cat.I like the service they provided. Every time after our visit here, they will call us or email us back to follow up on my cat's condition.Also, I find they provide luxurious cat hotels. Next time before we travel, we may book a hotel here. - 10/02/22
Today was my first time coming to this vet and I was very impressed. Dr Nick Glen looked after my cat Tiara today and he is by the far the best vet doctor I’ve come across. He was very patient, easy to talk to and knows how to do his job. He explained everything in well manner and he seemed like he genuinely cared about my cats health compared to other vets I’ve been to where they have rushed me through consultation and didn’t explain everything in full detail whereas dr Nick did. Will be bringing my cats to see Dr Nick from now on. Thanks for a good service - 11/01/22
I loved the genuine care and warmth Catherine had for my pet and my self. Her extensive knowledge and recommendations were appreciated . And she and the staff were able to handle Phoebe well - yay! Your ability to do what was needed with my pet and with gentle care and love was exactly what I needed. Thank you! - 25/11/21
We recently lost a pet to illness, and so we were overly cautious when another pet was experiencing some minor issues. Given a bad experience at another local vet recently, we decided to take our cat to Blakehurst instead. Having done so, i regret that we weren't using Blakehurst as our vet the entire time we've lived here! The staff were friendly and punctual, and they listened carefully to all of our concerns before providing treatment. - 25/11/21
I have been taking my 19 year old cat to Blakehurst vet since I rescued her when she was just 6 months old.If she is sick or needs anything done I don’t hesitate putting her in the car and taking her to Seamus Catherine and all at Blakehurst vets.I trust them and know they will look after her in their compassionate professional and reliable ways.I highly recommend Blakehurst vets. - 25/10/21
The staff at Blakehurst Vet are consummate professionals in every way. They have a genuine passion for caring for animals and this is reflected in both their interactions with clients and their pets. The premises is always clean and organised and pet products are always available. It is a one stop shop offering medical care, puppy school, boarding, bathing & a pharmacy. Owners and pets always feel welcomed and comfortable. I have been going to Blakehurst Vet since becoming a fur mummy almost three years ago and have not looked backed since. - 25/09/21
Really kind and genuinely caring vet. I felt comfortable within the first 30 secs of speaking to the nurse at the front that my kitten was in good hands. The initial greet & questionnaire at the front door was a calm and welcoming experience, I didnt feel rushed & parking was easy.The advice given was honest and they were so patient in answering all my questions.They know what they are doing and I have absolute trust in them. This will be my kittens regular vet from now on. - 25/09/21
Hamish is so lovely with our cats (and also us) and the girls that work with him as just as lovely. They are kind and loving to our cats and you feel they genuinely care about your pets as much as you do. I would not take my pet anywhere else. Our history is long with Hamish and after our last cat passed away both he and the girls showed such kindness at such an awful time, that I would not dream of going anywhere else. - 25/08/21
Dr Hamish and all the nurses are amazing and welcoming, I have taken my Dachshund since a pup and after adding a second Dachshund to the family he was more the joyed to start seeing him as well. That little extra effort the team goes to, to speak to the puppies and re assure them. This is a vet I would recommend anyone travel to no matter where you are from. Having had Dogs all my life I’m yet to have seen a more caring Vet the Dr Hamish and his team.Love,Snicker & Kai - 25/07/21
A big thank you to Hamish and his staff, who, over many years, have provided a professional, caring and committed veterinary service for our pets which have included dogs, rabbits and chickens. Hamish and his staff have always demonstrated a concerned, thoughtful , attentive, warmhearted and even an affectionate approach to the animals they have treated. Congratulations on doing an outstanding job. - 25/07/21

Will always spread the word about how good they are, they only care about the animals not about the money, and thats why I love taking my cat there because they care about him. ❤ - 25/05/21

I have always found Hamish and the vet support team super friendly, attentive and caring. Special thanks to Catherine and the team today who had to pump my Pugs stomach after he got into a box of Favourties. Not an ideal job but no complaints. I've found the service reasonably priced too compared to other vets and the long opening hours help with booking appointments. - 02/11/20
The staff are so incredibly friendly, happy to help and reciprocate the same love that we have for our own pets. Blakehurst Vet not only has impeccable customer service, but it is also an inviting and clean veterinary clinic. The vets are so thorough and go into depth with all their service and explanations, the passion for their profession truly shows. - 20/10/20
Wouldn't take my pets anywhere else. My Aussies always hated the vets but now they find it a pleasant experience. Hamish and the staff are wonderful. They are not over priced and they will take the time to look after each pet and their individual needs. My boys enjoy going to the vet! They are great with our blind pup. I appreciate the follow up phone calls to see if everything is ok. Thank you to all the staff. - 23/09/20
I love this place. Have been coming here since my dog was a pup - he is 11 now and we wouldn't go anywhere else. The vets and nurses really know what their doing and are very kind. Everyone is super welcomming and know my boy so well. He is never scared or worried about going to vet. Highly recommended. - 03/09/20
Everyone is amazing! You all are so understanding and supportive! Tass & I are first time fur-parents and each day is a learning curve for us both. For the time we met Ally at Puppy Pre-School, we knew we were at the right & best Vet in Sydney! Hamish is wonderful as well as Catherine! The whole team at Blakehurst Vet is above and beyond! Boston loves you all and loves visiting you guys! Love the supportive environment :) - 30/07/20
I visited this vet for the first time for my 2 year old cats skin issues. The Nurse and the Vet were extremely warm and friendly. The nurse took the initiative to retrieve my cats medical history from her previous vet which I believe is important and I haven’t had other clinics do this before. The vet was very thorough and informative and offered several avenues of help. He was very warm and friendly with my little one which I appreciate. He took his time with explaining everything in detail and answered all of my questions. The clinic was clean and inviting, I loved the spa music in the waiting room and appreciated the seperate cat and dog waiting area. I will definitely be bringing my cat back here and make this her regular vet. - 30/07/20
Hamish is always so patient and thorough - he is so great with my dog she actually likes coming to the vet! The level of service is fantastic, right from the moment you step in the door. Reception staff are so friendly and helpful, and then during the consult nothing is too much trouble. Just a really great experience - always has been - 08/07/20
Very professional and caring practice highly recommended to look after your fur and feathered children. A very knowledgeable, informative and caring team. The advice and care for my dog when he injured his leg led to his surgery which greatly improved his health and wellbeing. He is like a puppy all over again he is so happy. - 06/07/20
For many years my sister and I have taken our pets to Hamish and his team to look after. Hamish is the most caring vet and looks after them as if they were his own.

Very happy with our visit this morning. It was the first time we had met Catherine and were struck by her warmth, gentleness and professionalism. All the nurses were so friendly and obliging including quickly cleaning up the area where our puppy had an "accident". We're so happy we had Bkakehurst vet recommended to us. Having everything explained so clearly and the caring manner in which Zoie is attended to. - 02/06/20
The staff are exceptional. Karla is amazing but all the staff take great care of our 2 elderly cats. Both Hamish and Catherine have always provided wonderful care and advice. my cats are very senior and all the staff take their age into account and are able to accomodate even my silly requests - 02/06/20

We’ve been taking our cats to Hamish for many years and we love the care and attention we and our kitties receive at Blakehurst Vet.We recently also had one of our cats stay at the cat hotel. Whilst the cat didn’t appreciate being away from us for a week, it was very clear how much all the staff cared for our cat during his stay and were very attentive to his needs. - 23/01/20

How to begin this, how to say thank you to a team of people that have loved and cared for your animal as much as you did. 14 years ago we met Dr Hamish when we brought our scrawny rescue in and with his help we had a wonderful cat named Bruce. We have been seeing him ever since for regular check ups to emergencies and everything in between. Our trust in him never wavered and his advice was always welcome. This last year has been our hardest with Bruce becoming older and requiring a lot of extra attention. Hamish and his staff have gone above and beyond to help us, answering questions and accommodating her needs. When it was time to make the hard decisions he was kind and patient. He allowed her to have dignity in her final moments and as much as we have lost a friend, I would like to thank Hamish and his staff for everything they did for Bruce. - 23/07/19
Hamish is such a great vet who has an exceptional team working for him. Professional, caring and knowledgeable. We attended Puppy School and found the classes fun and engaging and loved that it included one on one follow up sessions after the course finished. Finally trips to the vet are not longer stressful, both dogs cant wait to get through the door! We are so glad we have found Hamish and his team, we feel like part of the family. - 23/06/19
The best vet in Sydney. Dr Hamish is so caring and compassionate. Our fur babies are so well looked after and the Hotel for Cats is something you would have to see to believe. It is beyond 5 star. If you need your fur babies cared for this is the place to take them. Also the girl on reception is the friendliest receptionist I've dealt with. 10/10 in all areas of service. Thanks so much Dr Hamish and your superstar team. My babies purr thank you too!!! - 23/06/19
Hamish and his team are truly wonderful - caring and compassionate. Our family dog had been unwell for awhile and injured himself and we had to make the awful decision every pet owner dreads. Hamish was very sensitive to how we were feeling and endeavoured to make things easier. In addition, the team sent us a lovely memorial card sometime after....would recommend him and his team to anyone looking for a vet - 23/06/19
I have entrusted the care of my pets to Dr. Hamish and the staff st Blakehurst Vet for the last 12 years. In that time we have known Hamish to always provide our pets, whether it be our guinea pigs or beloved dog Henry, with expert veterinary care and attention. They have always made time for appointments even at short notice and they have provided follow up care after treatment plans were put in place. I recommend Blakehurst Vet to anyone who loves their pets and wants the best possible care for them. Thankyou Dr. Hamish....... - 23/06/17
I have been taking my dog Teddy to Hamish for about 4 years. The service is always outstanding and the nurses are so friendly and caring. Teddy loves going to the vet, as they always fuss over him and make him feel at home. What more could a dog owner want. Thanks Blakehurst Vet. - 23/06/17
I was at the end of my tether with my vet but I'm sooo glad that I found Hamish at Blakehurst. He is very caring and has such a natural way with my dog Johnnie. His years of experience shows. He was able to fix Johnnies ear infection when others have failed. I can always get into see him so Johnnie always has the same doctor which I just love. You will never find a better vet than this one. Do your pet a favour!! - 23/06/16
Dr Hamish Bathgate is a wonderful vet. 4 years ago he saved my beautiful dog Niki when she had an Addisonian crisis. Addison’s disease is very difficult to diagnose and I am most grateful that Hamish had the expertise to solve her illness before it was too late.He is a caring, compassionate and experienced vet and I cannot recommend him highly enough. If you are looking for a top rate vet then Hamish is the one. - 23/06/16
