Because pets can’t tell the time…

At AHVEC we're Open 5.30pm-8am Weeknights & 24 Hours on Weekends and Public Holidays.

We understand that your pets are important family members, and they can get sick at anytime of the day or night. You want peace of mind regarding your pet’s health.

We are here for you outside of normal clinic hours, providing immediate, high quality veterinary care. In the case of a true emergency, every minute counts. You will have direct and immediate phone access to a trained veterinary nurse, and an experienced emergency veterinarian can see your pet at any time during the night or on weekends.
