We will assess your pet as soon as possible after arrival.
- Pets are seen and treated by a dedicated emergency vet
- Animals that require the most urgent and immediate treatment will be seen as a priority
- We will contact your usual vet with an update of your pet’s progress as soon as possible during normal opening hours
- If your pet is critically ill or requires specialist attention, consultation with a specialist in the relevant field can be arranged if requested.
Please report to reception. Your pet will be promptly assessed and you will be advised on what will happen next.
Consultation and treatment
In most cases this is a consultation with an ARC emergency vet, during which a treatment plan and any further associated costs will be fully discussed.
Pets in Critical Condition
If your pet is deemed to be critical then this will be communicated and they may be admitted to the treatment area so that life-saving treatments can be started as soon as possible. Once your pet’s condition is stabilised, a consultation will occur where an appropriate treatment plan can be developed and associated costs discussed.
