In an emergency call (07) 3172 0593

 

If you have an emergency, or are worried about your pet’s health, please call (07) 3172 0593 and we can help assess the need for emergency treatment. You don’t need a referral or appointment to attend the hospital outside of regular hours.

Our hospital is open 24 hours a day and is run by experienced emergency and critical care (ECC) veterinarians to help your pet when an emergency arises. Our emergency team has access to:

  • A full in-house laboratory
  • Digital x-ray, ultrasound, 16-slice helical CT and Queensland’s only veterinary 1.5T MRI
  • Dedicated Intensive Care Unit with mechanical ventilator support
  • Separate dog and cat waiting areas, wards and treatment areas
  • Three fully equipped dedicated surgical theatres
  • Comprehensively stocked onsite pharmacy

Throughout your pet’s treatment we will keep you updated on their progress. We understand that you may miss your pet and be worried about them and encourage you to call for updates and to visit by arranging an appointment with reception. We will also work with your referring veterinarian to ensure a coordinated approach is taken to your pet’s care. If your pet requires further treatment by an ARH specialist this can be facilitated after discussion with your local veterinarian.

In an emergency

If it is outside your regular veterinarian’s hours and you are concerned about your pet’s health you can call or visit ARH at any time.

Upon arrival at ARH, patients are triaged so cases are seen in order of importance, not necessarily in order of arrival. You will be asked to fill in paperwork with information about yourself and your pet. An experienced emergency and critical care (ECC) veterinarian will discuss your pet’s history and outline your treatment options and approximate costs for procedures.

If your pet is admitted to hospital for treatment you will be asked to sign a consent form and leave a minimum deposit of 50% of the estimated costs, in order for treatment to proceed.

The ECC veterinarian will keep in touch with you during the course of your pet’s stay in hospital. Following emergency treatment your animal will typically return to your regular veterinarian if ongoing care is necessary. If your pet requires further treatment by an ARH specialist we will work closely with your veterinarian to ensure a coordinated approach to your pet’s care.

Services and facilities

Our new building at 532 Seventeen Mile Rocks Road, Sinnamon Park was designed with you and your pet in mind. Our staff have access to state of the art imaging and diagnostic equipment including digital x-ray, ultrasound, 16-slice helical CT, Queensland’s only veterinary 1.5T MRI and a full in-house laboratory.

Our intensive care unit (ICU) staff are highly trained to monitor and treat the most critically ill patients. They have access to state of the art equipment including invasive and non-invasive blood pressure monitoring, mechanical ventilator support and oxygen therapy, as well as the most up to date in-house blood testing machines for haematology, biochemistry, coagulation and blood-gas analysis.

Our staff provide constant, close monitoring of all animals and specialise in providing pain management, intravenous fluid resuscitation, blood transfusions, oxygen support and nutrition to patients. Their dedicated care can often be the key factor in a pet’s survival.

We also have separate dog and cat waiting areas, wards and treatment areas to ensure your pet is as comfortable as possible during their stay.

Our emergency hospital and specialist service are a fully integrated business, sharing the same staff, computer systems and equipment. This ensures that if your pet requires assessment or treatment by one of our specialists this is as seamless and stress free as possible.

ARH Brisbane is open 24 hours a day and our visiting hours are flexible throughout the day and evening. Please speak to one of our receptionists to arrange a time for visiting your pet.
