2017 Public Holiday Opening Times posted - 09/Mar/2017

We understand that your pet is another member of your family and like us, can become ill or suffer from a serious illness or injury. Often these conditions can occur during the night, on a weekend or public holiday – when most veterinary practices are closed. 

Our veterinary hospital is open on all public holidays throughout 2017. You can expect a caring and supportive approach at all times from our team:

*Please be aware that patients are seen in order of urgency, as opposed to their order of arrival.
There may be a slight wait before a Veterinarian is available to see your pet.

We appreciate your patience whilst we attend to patients with immediate life-threatening problems. In the unlikely event of a delay, one of our qualified Veterinary Nurses will perform a triage assessment to ensure there will be no risk to your pet.
