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 us for an emergency however, common emergencies relate to car accidents, heart conditions, poisoning and a range of injuries.

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.

Please contact us to discuss our after-hours arrangement, it’s always nice to know this information before you actually need it.

Some emergency procedures we perform on site at Richmond Pet Health Centre. However most of our emergency cases are treated at our Bligh Park Pet Health Centre, 48 Rifle Range Road, Bligh Park where we have full surgical and hospital facilities.

Please feel free to inspect the facilities or to ask any questions. Our reception staff will be pleased to assist. Thank you.
