How We Can Help You

People come to see Dr Absalom as he is a passionate, caring vet and is well known throughout Port Augusta and surrounding areas. Specializing in a range of services, the Redgum vet team pride themselves on reliable, professional, friendly and welcoming service.

Additionally, Dr Roger Absalom lives on-site, extending the care while your pets are boarding at Redgum Vet & Pet Boarding. The Boarding facilities are spacious and air-conditioned. With generous exercise areas, your pets will be able to run and play and even make new friends during their visit.


Vet Clinic

Vet Clinic

The Redgum Vet clinic is fully equipped and functioning. To ensure the best possible care, support and diagnosis for your pets, we carry an extensive range of diagnostic tools and equipment. This includes digital x-ray processing, and ultrasound, as well as surgical support tools.


Pet Boarding

Pet Boarding

We offer a variety of quality food choices, however, if your pet has specific dietary requirements you may choose to provide their own food. In this way, any changes to diet are minimised. At Redgum Vet & Pet Boarding, we promote the highest standards of health and safety for your pet, within the daily cleaning, feeding, and exercising regimes.




Is your dog or cat looking a bit ragged or tired and you want to spruce it up a bit? Is the smell of your best friend interrupting your cuddle times? You are not the only one who wants to look good all year round, so get your four-legged friend groomed at Redgum today.


Behavioural Training

Behavioural Training

At Redgum, we have teamed with Leanne, our fully trained consultant who will spend time with you and your dog or dogs, in your own environment, before developing a detailed plan. From that point, she will explain to you the strategies you can put into place to achieve the behaviour you are seeking. A further follow-up session will allow you to fine tune the training under expert guidance.


Home Visits

Home Visits

Perhaps you have ordered a bag of food, but picking it up can be difficult. No worries – we will deliver to your house; perhaps your dog needs a groom, but you find it difficult to get in and out of the car. No worries – we will pick up your little bundle of fluff and deliver a well-manicured pooch!


Outreach Clinic

Outreach Clinic

Dr Roger has a wide outreach clinic service. This extends from Ceduna on the West Coast (monthly), to Coober Pedy in the north of the state (6 weekly), and more close to home, Andamooka and Roxby (monthly). He also visits Quorn, Hawker, and Wilmington on a needs basis.
