Emergency Procedures

 

The Melton Veterinary Clinic is available to see Emergencies anytime of the day during business hours no appointment required.

We provide you and your pets with an emergency service for critical illness or injury. We hope your pet never needs us for an emergency however, common emergencies relate to car accidents, heart conditions, poisoning and a range of injuries.
 
Upon arrival, your pet will be assessed by one of our nurses and veterinarians. We will aim to provide an estimate of the costs involved with your case, however, please be aware that with emergency procedures costs can vary depending on what services and treatments are required. Our veterinarians and nurses will keep you updated regularly during the course of your pet's stay in hospital. In some cases we may need to refer to a veterinary specialist centre or 24-hour emergency facility.

If you could please phone the clinic ahead of your arrival, however we know that this is not always possible.

Please bring any packaging to the clinic if you think your pet may have been poisoned with (rat bait, snail bait, medications, house hold items etc.).
