Emergency Procedures

We are able to provide emergency care for critical illness or injury. Though we hope your pet never needs us for an emergency, we are here for you if your pet is hit by a car, goes into heart failure, or is poisoned.

Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed by one of our veterinarians. We 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. Our veterinarians 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.

If your pet is ill or injured outside of clinic hours, we recommend contacting Advanced Vet Care in Kensington (03 9092 0400) or Animal Referral Hospital at Essendon Fields (03 9379 0700).
