Emergency Procedures

During opening hours we can cater to most emergency situations, even if it is just the initial stablisation which may require later referral to a specialist hospital. Common emergencies relate to car accidents, heart conditions, snake and tick bites, poisoning and a range of injuries. Please phone us if possible to let us know you are coming so we can be as prepared as possible for your arrival. 

After hours we are fortunate to have access to a number of trusted local general practice veterinary clinics in Toowoomba which provide after-hours emergency care up to 10pm at night. After 10pm most will then refer any after-hours calls to our nearest 24 hour specialist veterinary hospital at UQ Vets Small Animal Hospital in Gatton.

    • UQ small animal clinic is a 24hour clinic so you can always phone for advice if you are not sure if your pet needs to be seen sooner rather than later. 

Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed by the veterinarian. They 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 and how your pet responds to treatment or if further problems arise. The veterinarian 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.
