A safe containing dangerous veterinary drugs and two cars have allegedly been stolen from a Katherine vet clinic, causing disruption to the treatment of animals and damaged property.
NT police say Katherine Veterinary Clinic was broken into between 4am and 6am on Monday morning.
Clinic owner Alex Burleigh said the drug safe was later recovered by police, but could not confirm if all the drugs were accounted for.
Mr Burleigh said all animals in the clinic are safe and well, but the incident has made treating animals harder.
"It's impeded our ability to treat animals," he said.
"We're just concerned with the safety of everyone.
"Please bring the drugs back."
Senior Sergeant Karen Sanderson said the drugs are not produced for people.
"The drugs are not suitable for humans and could cause death if consumed."
Mr Burleigh said two cars including a 2016 Ford Ranger were stolen but found later on Monday.
At the time of writing one car had been returned to the clinic while one was bogged in bushland outside the town.
Mr Burleigh also confirmed the clinic had been damaged in the incident.
He said the gate in to the clinic had been destroyed by cars driving through it and windows were smashed.
Anyone with information in relation to this incident should contact Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000.
