Emergency Procedures

We provide you and your pets with an after-hours emergency service for critical illness or injury. We hope your pet never needs help for an emergency however, common emergencies relate to car accidents, heart conditions, poisoning and a range of injuries.
 
Our after hours emergency service is shared with the other local vet clinics, so it is important to phone ahead and be prepared to travel to the rostered on call clinic, and meet with the on call vet. Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed by one of the on call veterinarians. It is always difficult to provide an estimate of costs in emergencies, as the illnesses or injuries can be so varied in their nature. We do 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.
