This comprehensive range of tools and capabilities ensures that we can promptly assess and diagnose various cases. These may include:

Are You open 24 hours a day?

While we strive to provide immediate care during our opening hours, it’s important to note that we are not staffed overnight.

For critically unwell patients requiring ongoing monitoring and care, we recommend they be taken to a 24-hour veterinary clinic.

This ensures continuous attention and access to around-the-clock medical support.

However, for many cases that are reasonably stable, they can be transferred back to us in the morning for further treatment and follow-up care.

Symptoms That would need urgent care

There are several situations in which it is crucial to rush your pet for urgent veterinary care. Here are some that you better take note of:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • If your pet is struggling to breathe, this necessitates immediate medical care.

    This could also include rapid or shallow breaths, or showing signs of choking or suffocation. All these are considered an emergency.

    Respiratory distress can be caused by various reasons, including:

    • Allergic reactions
    • Trauma
    • Heart or lung issues
    • Obstructions.
  • Severe injuries
  • If your pet sustains severe injuries, you need to find a vet service for Mordialloc. These injuries could be:

    • Deep wounds
    • Broken bones
    • Trauma from accidents

    Additionally, uncontrolled bleeding, open fractures, or visible signs of pain and distress require immediate attention.

  • Ingestion of toxic substances
  • If your pet ingests toxic substances, see a vet immediately. These substance could be anything including:

    • Chemicals
    • Medications
    • Human foods (such as chocolate, grapes, or onions)
    • Poisonous plants

    Any of the above make it mandatory to seek immediate veterinary care. This is because some substances can cause severe poisoning and organ damage if not treated promptly.

  • Seizures
  • If your pet experiences a seizure that lasts longer than a few minutes, it is considered an emergency. It is even worse if it happens multiple times within a short period.

    Seizures can be caused by various underlying conditions, including

    • Epilepsy
    • Toxin exposure
    • Neurological disorders
  • Inability to urinate or defecate
  • It is not normal for pets to struggle with urinating or defecating. So if it happens, this could be signs of urinary blockage or bowel obstruction.

    It may not be easy to tell but if they show signs of discomfort or pain during the process, then you need to seek a vet’s advice.

    These conditions can be life-threatening and require immediate veterinary attention.

  • Sudden weakness or collapse
  • Signs of weakness and tiredness are not normal in pets. Therefore, if your pet experiences sudden weakness, collapses, or is unable to stand or walk properly, visit a vet immediately.

    These symptoms may indicate underlying issues:

    • Heart problems
    • Internal bleeding
    • Neurological conditions

    Remember, if you ever have concerns about your pet’s health and well-being, it is better to err on the side of caution and seek veterinary care promptly.

    In an emergency, always contact our vet services for Mordialloc for guidance and follow their instructions!

    So far out of all the vets I've been to this one is the best. It's really a shame I've moved far. You can tell that Mary and Chris genuinely care for your pets and that they actually like animals. Not to name and shame but many I've been to don't even try to make your pet comfortable. The receptionists here are also really nice. Consultation fee is fairly priced. Thanks, Mika 😊
