FAQ – 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.
