After Hours Veterinarians In Perth
Open 24 hours on weekends and public holidays
Perth Vet Emergency is located in Yokine, Perth. The team of Emergency & Critical Care veterinarians and nurses are available to help all sick and injured pets when general practitioners are closed. No appointment is required for pets who need our help every night, weekend or public holiday. We’re open without fail.
The PVE Team is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities including surgical suites, intensive care, in-house laboratories, ventilation equipment, ultrasound, antivenene for tick or snake bites, endoscopes, dialysis and blood transfusion equipment, and much more.
Upon arrival to PVE, owners will be required to complete a registration form providing contact information as well as general details about their pet. They will then be consulted by the next available veterinarian in a private consultation room. While PVE makes every attempt to see patients as quickly as possible, it’s important to note that patients are seen in order of their level of emergency. Critical pets are taken straight to the treatment area to be stabilised by the emergency team. The veterinarian then meets with the patient’s owners to discuss their condition and develop the necessary treatment plan.
Pets who are stable on arrival remain with their owners until a veterinarian can see them in a private consultation room. An examination will take place and unless the pet requires hospitalisation consented by the owners, they’re immediately discharged with a patient record and any medication required. A full veterinary report is forwarded to the pet’s regular veterinarian for their records.
We encourage owners to ask questions and discuss any concerns with the PVE veterinarian. It is vital you understand your pet’s treatment and are comfortable with the medical plan provided. We understand it is always stressful when you visit an emergency veterinary hospital so feel free to take a moment and ask our friendly staff to explain anything you’re concerned about or don’t understand.
We have provided Information for Owners on our website to answer any frequently asked questions and explain the process in the event you need our help.
