Emergencies during our open hours

First aid for your pet
There are also some immediate actions you can take to assist your pet. Please refer to this article "First Aid Tips". This article provides advice on bleeding, broken bones, burns, choking, convulsions (seizures), eye problems, punctures, penetrating objects, fight wounds, resuscitation, temperature changes, wounds and grazes.  If your pet is suffering and is in any pain please seek veterinary attention immediately.

How do you contact an after-hours emergency centre?

We work closely with the emergency after-hours centres listed below. Depending on the severity of your pet's medical emergency we recommend phoning the centre either before you leave home or while you are on the way to the centre. This will allow the emergency response team to prepare for your pet's arrival so treatment can commence promptly.
