Emergencies

If you need emergency treatment for your pet after hours please call the Manukau After Hours Veterinary Clinic on 277 8383. This clinic is located at 15 Jack Conway Ave and is staffed by nurses and veterinarians all night, weekends and public holidays.

During normal clinic hours we are available to attend to all emergency situations. It is always preferable to call ahead so that we can assess the degree of emergency and have staff ready to assist. Call us on 537 0111

Moving injured Animals
If you have an injured pet either from a road accident or fight or sudden illness and collapse it is best to get the animal into a vehicle as quickly as possible and brought to the clinic. While we can do “call outs”, this will delay treatment and we do not have fully equipped vehicles (such as human ambulances). Using a sheet or blanket and rolling a pet onto it is the easiest way to pick them up.
Remember: Injured animals are more likely to bite!

Costs of Emergency Treatment
Emergency treatment for your pet will almost always cost more than routine appointments. After Hours costs are the most expensive but even emergencies attended to in the clinic during the day will incur additional charges when our vets and staff are required to provide immediate exams, triage and intensive care.
