Emergencies

Sutherland Vet Clinic takes the care of your pets very seriously. For this reason, we recommend three dedicated emergency service practices that provide 24/7 patient care and specialists for your pet in emergencies. We work in conjunction with these emergency practices to ensure our patients and your pets are treated well, and the medical information is shared.

Outside of business hours, please contact one of the following Vet Hospitals.

VSOS: Veterinary Specialists of Sydney

24-hour emergency number: 02 8376 8767

Veterinary Specialists of Sydney (VSOS), is a brand-new animal hospital in the Sutherland Shire. This new centre gives pet owners, and vets access to an advanced treatment centre with state-of-the-art equipment and 24/7 emergency care. 

You can visit VSOS after hours for emergency services, and we will deal with them directly once our clinic is open again. We work closely with the team of specialists at VSOS.

Small Animal Specialist Hospital

24-hour emergency number: 02 9889 0289

Located in North Ryde, Small Animal Specialist Hospital (SASH) has an emergency department, and no appointment or referral is necessary. 

Their friendly, caring and highly experienced team of vets are there for you 24 hours, 7 days a week. Their veterinary emergency department is equipped to handle all emergencies and will make sure your pet receives the best care available in Sydney and the central coast.

The front door will be locked after hours for security reasons so as you arrive; please press the doorbell for prompt attention.

Animal Referral Hospital

24-hour emergency number: 02 9758 8666

Located in Homebush, Animal Referral Hospital (ARF), is about a 30-minute drive from the Shire, and the emergency service is run similarly to casualty at a human hospital. Upon arrival, the patients are triaged, so the cases are seen in order of importance, not necessarily in order of arrival.

ARF is open 24 hours a day and is managed by experienced emergency and critical care (ECC) veterinarians to help your pet when an emergency arises.

Customer Feedback

“We just want to say thank you for the high level of care Trevor and Tammy have always received when in your care. We are so grateful for everything you have done for Trevor throughout his surgery. When we came to visit Trevor and we saw him wrapped up like a baby it put our mind at ease that he would be fine. We never thought we would see Trevor get excited to be going to the vet!”

– Scott and Mandy M.
