Perth Veterinary Specialists operates an after hours general practice and emergency care facility from 305 Selby St Osborne Park. This integrates closely with their day time specialist facility, allowing 24 hour streamlined care for vets, patients and clients.
What services does AEC offer?
Vets in the AEC team have GP level qualifications. Their team will work closely with the day-time specialists for support if required.
Their team of emergency vets and nurses will provide:
•Accurate and rapid assessment of all emergency cases that present after hours, and offer stabilisation of each case after discussion with the owners.
•Emergency care, monitoring or stabilisation of patients from our practice (e.g. after surgery or in the event that they require overnight care)
•A pick-up and delivery service for practices in the local area, allowing for transportation of patients to and from local practices is available. Please contact us by phone on 9204 0400 to arrange this service. A signed consent form is required.
PVS and AEC does not offer any routine general practice services (e.g. vaccinations, dental checks, desexings, etc and they do not sell any merchandise). At the end of the night, clients will be given the option of return to their general veterinary practice for ongoing care, have a consult with a PVS specialist (if appropriate) or be discharged home (if appropriate). Their emergency staff will be in touch with veterinary practices in the mornings to sort out the most appropriate course of action.
The services offered at PVS (imaging, oncology, surgery, medicine, dermatology) will remain the same.
