The Pet Annual Wellness Service (PAWS Club) is offered to make the cost of ownership of dogs and cats more affordable by allowing payment to be divided into monthly instalments. PAWS Club members are covered for all preventable diseases and parasites with a combination of products to suit your needs and lifestyle. There is no fee to join the PAWS Club and treatments are delivered to your door throughout the year when they are needed.

If you are looking for comprehensive preventative health for your dog or cat, the PAWS Club provides a hassle-free, cost-effective and convenient service with all of the organisation taken care of. Feel free to enquire at your next visit or by giving us a call any time.


Since 1976 Stabler and Howlett Veterinary Surgeons has been committed to providing high quality care to pets in the Mackay and surrounding districts. Being animal lovers and owners ourselves, our first priority is to pets and we pride ourselves on offering the best possible care of this important member of your family. We understand the emotions involved when your pet is sick or injured which is why we have a dedicated team of veterinarians and veterinary nurses who ensure each patient receives the best possible care and treatment options whilst in our clinic.

At Stabler and Howlett, a Veterinarian is on call each night, every weekend and all Public Holidays for both small and large animal emergencies. If you have an emergency then please phone 4952 2522 – if the Veterinarian is not at the clinic then please listen to the recorded message and then phone the mobile number provided. No problem is too small and we pride ourselves on being available at all times as we understand you can’t predict when your pet becomes ill.
