Here's Why Pets Love Coming to Vogue Vets 

At Vogue Vets, we all love animals.  So, as soon as your pet walks through our door, we are ready with a welcoming pat, cuddle, and softly spoken words. Your pet will also receive a yummy treat every time they visit- what better way to make their trip worthwhile? 

We understand that, whilst dogs may LOVE to investigate cats, the feeling is certainly not mutual!  Feeling safe and secure in a relaxed and friendly environment is important to them.  Therefore, to maximise the comfort of both our cat and dog patients, we have separate cat and dog consult rooms and hospital facilities, which ensures their visit is as relaxing as possible.

               We Look Forward to Seeing You...


Vogue Vets’ Mascot

Leroy came into us as an injured stray, shortly after we opened in 2011. We nursed him back to health, and he can now be found chirping merrily away in reception, or in the front garden. His happy singing puts a smile on all our faces and he loves nothing more than to sing to everyone that comes through the door.

Dr. Fran Pagnacco

Principal Veterinarian

 Fran  did her Veterinary training at Murdoch University, graduating in 1999.  Fran has spent 18 years working in Perth and 2 years in the UK as a small animal practitioner.

She loves cats and dogs equally, and gets a huge amount of joy from forming close professional bonds with her clients and patients alike.  

Fran had a dream to provide her local community with a family friendly vet practice - somewhere where people would enjoy coming, confident in the knowledge that they and their pet family will always be welcome and where they will always receive honest, personalized and professional veterinary care.


In 2011, this dream started to come true with Vogue Vets in Joondanna - in 2019, she has expanded their services to include animal rehab & physiotherapy, hydrotherapy, acupuncture, traditional chinese medicine and traditional western medicine at Vogue Vets & Wellness Centre which is located in Stirling.

Fran regularly updates her continuing professional development and has recently completed courses and received further Certificates in Canine Sports Medicine, Post operative Cruciate Rehabilitation and Therapeutic Handling for Canine Rehabilitation.

Fran has 2  handsome little cats called Matthew & Fergal, and a beautiful Golden Retriever called Ami

Fran is available for appointments at Joondanna:

& at Stirling:

all day Mondays and Thursday, and alternate Friday morning & afternoons.
