Transport

Getting your pet to and from our emergency vet clinic

We understand that sometimes it is impossible for you to transport your pet to a veterinarian or an emergency vet clinic. Whether it is due to you not having transport or being incapacitated or unable to drive yourself. Whatever the cause there are several options available to you to get you and your pet to and from our clinic. These independent services can assist in transport when needed, any time of the day or night.

• Pet Ambulance
• ACT Cabs
• Canberra Elite Cabs
• Cab Silver Service

Referring your pet back to his or her regular Vet

Whenever possible it is important to accompany your pet back to your regular veterinarian. Your regular vet will need to discuss further treatment options with you and will need your consent to treat your pet. We do realize that transporting your pet back to your regular vet in the morning may be inconvenient as it is a busy time of day but for continuity of care it is best that your pet is discharged from our service into your care so you can then be fully informed about the next stage of your pets recovery. In circumstances where an animal is in a critical condition and the pet ambulance is not available we will offer to drive your pet to your regular vet or specialist referral service for you, we would ask that you come into our clinic first and we will then transport your pet to the hospital of your choice and meet you at the referral facility.

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.
