The Centre for Animal Referral & Emergency (CARE)
Find us at 5 Hood Street (just off Hoddle Street) Collingwood, in inner city Melbourne, 3066. We are a 24-hour animal emergency centre, 7 days a week – no appointment is needed. We are open when your primary care vet is closed, including weekends and public holidays. We will work closely with your primary care vet as a team, to ensure your pet receives the best overall treatment available. Within the emergency vet hospital is a 24-hour intensive care unit staffed by experienced vets and dedicated ICU nurses.
We have vets on duty around the clock to see emergency pet cases: a dog hit by car; a cat that’s been poisoned; a pet with breathing difficulties or seizures.
CARE is also a specialist pet referral hospital for both surgery and internal medicine.
Specialist surgery: for example, hip replacement, complex fracture repair, knee reconstruction, abdominal or thoracic surgery. Internal medicine: including treatment for diabetes, heart problems or cancer.
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
