Centre for Animal Referral & Emergency
Centre for Animal Referral and Emergency is located in Collingwood, Melbourne. We are a Veterinary Specialist Hospital and 24-hour animal emergency centre, open 7 days-a-week, including public holidays.
CARE is specialist pet referral hospital for both surgery and internal medicine. We perform all types of Specialist Surgery: for example, hip replacement, complex fracture repair, knee reconstruction, abdominal or thoracic surgery. Our Internal Medicine Specialists treats a wide range of conditions including treatment for diabetes, heart problems or cancer. An appointment can be made at any time, Monday to Friday, for a consultation with one of our specialist veterinarians. Referral information from your primary care vet should be sent through in advance, or presented on the day of your appointment.
In addition, our animal emergency centre is open 24 hours per day. No appointment or referral is needed for our emergency centre and you may bring your pet directly to us at any time, day or night, if you require immediately veterinary attention. We are open when your primary vet is closed, including Saturdays and Sundays and public holidays. We will work closely with your own vet as a team, to ensure your pet receives the best overall treatment available. Within our specialist and emergency vet hospital we also have a 24-hour intensive care unit for pets, which is staffed by around-the-clock by experienced vets, emergency and critical care specialists, and dedicated ICU nurses.
We have vets on duty 24 hours every day at our animal emergency centre, to see emergency pet cases: for example, a dog hit by car; a cat that’s been poisoned; or a pet with breathing difficulties or seizures.
Find us at 5 Hood Street (just off Hoddle Street) Collingwood, in inner city Melbourne, Victoria, 3066. Be sure to make a note of our telephone number just in case your pet needs CARE in the event of an emergency. 03 9417 6417
