If your pet is experiencing a medical emergency, call us immediately on 1300 652 494. We are open 24/7 to assist you in a medical crisis.
Emergencies can happen at any time. That's why we have highly qualified and caring staff available around the clock, every single day of the year. Just like a human hospital.
What to do if your pet has a medical emergency
Just like in a human medical emergency, it's important you remain calm but act fast to get your pet to us. In most cases there is little first aid that can be done at home and so the best thing is to get to us as soon as possible.
Handle injured or painful pets carefully
Remember, that although our pets don’t want to hurt us, they may bite when in severe pain. If you are having difficulty getting your pet into your car, consider using a small blanket or towel to handle your pet to help protect yourself and help your pet feel secure.
Stop the bleeding
If your pet is bleeding from an external wound, apply gauze or a clean cloth/material to the site whilst maintaining consistent pressure until you can get to us.
Regardless of the type of emergency, the best thing you can do for your pet is to contact the Animal Hospital straight away.
