What do I do if my pet needs vet attention and the clinic is closed?

Did you know we offer an after hours emergency service at all times we are closed? Whether it is the middle of the night or on the weekend, you will always be able to access vet attention for your pet.

If your pet needs to be seen outside normal hours, it is important for you to phone the clinic first before heading in. No clinics locally have a vet at the clinic 24/7. If you phone ahead before heading to the clinic, the vet will be able to meet you at the clinic much sooner than if you drive to the clinic first then call the vet.

It is also important to listen to any instructions the vets may give you, such as which hospital to attend. We will normally see all our after hours cases at the Bunbury Vet Clinic. We share after hours work with Harradine and Associates, so you may need to attend their hospital on Bussell Highway when they are on call, and Harradine clients will need to attend the Bunbury Vet Clinic when we are on call.

To access the after hours service, phone our normal clinic number 97215999 and press 2 when prompted. This will divert your call to the duty vet. If they cannot answer straight away such as when they are with another patient, please leave a detailed message including your name and phone number, and they will call you back as soon as possible.
