Emergency Procedures

Emergency Care

We provide you and your pets with an after-hours emergency service for critical illness or injury. We hope your pet never needs us for an emergency however, common emergencies relate to car accidents, heart conditions, poisoning and a range of injuries.

After hours emergencies are shared between three local vet clinics - Bonny Hills, Wauchope and Camvet. This is to ensure that vets get some time off, as they work normal business hours on top of providing after hours care. Normally only one vet is on duty for three clinics, so can get quite busy. We ask that you phone the normal clinic number (6584 8808) to be given directions to the vet on duty. Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed by a veterinarian who will aim to provide an estimate of the costs involved with your case, however, please be aware that with emergency procedures costs can vary depending on what services and treatments are required. The vet will keep you updated regularly during the course of your pet's stay in hospital. In some cases we may need to refer to a veterinary specialist centre or 24-hour emergency facility.

Please contact us to discuss our after-hours arrangement, it’s always nice to know this information before you actually need it.
