Sunshine Veterinary Clinic

The Sunshine Veterinary Clinic was established by Dr Joseph Sos (Yuri's father) in Albion in 1968.

After retiring in 1972, the practice was leased out for three years. This veterinarian left suddenly in 1974 and Joseph prevailed on Yuri to take over the practice. The practice grew rapidly, outgrowing its original building.

Yuri commenced building the current practice in Anderson Road in 1977 and moved in on Australia Day weekend in early 1978.

The current clinic building was built in 1978 and Yuri has been practicing there since then.
