Why is the cost of emergency veterinary care high?

Veterinary care unlike public health is not subsidized by the government. In order for us to provide gold standard care for your pet we have to employ a highly qualified team of veterinarians and nurses who stay awake all night to care for your beloved pet. We also need state of the art equipment to diagnose disease and to help trauma patients. The fees you pay cover these expenses.

Canberra Veterinary Emergency Service will be staying open during the COVID-19 outbreak.

To stay open however, we have needed to put some measures in place to keep our staff well so we can be here to tend to your pet.

Please stay in your vehicle upon arrival at our clinic and call us at 6225 7257 for more information. We will tend to your pet as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding.
