Sundays, Public Holidays & After Hours
If you have an emergency please call us on 02 4821 1966. Please listen to the message on the answering machine which will give you the contact details for the vet on call if they are available. Please note we are not staffed as a 24/7 emergency clinic so the veterinarian is not available (10pm till 8am Monday to Friday) and (6pm till 8am Saturdays, Sundays and Public holidays). At these times we direct you to the closest 24/7 staffed emergency hospitals in Canberra.
As the surgery and hospital are not routinely staffed during after-hours, please call the veterinarian on call before arriving.
Please note that procedures out of hours will incur an after-hours veterinarian and nurse call in charge. If you have an unwell or injured pet it is ideal to see the Veterinarian during the weekdays (8am-6pm) where possible as on Saturdays we have reduced staff and hours so may need to transfer your pet to the emergency hospital in Canberra.
