Russell Vale Animal Clinic is NOT open 24/7, and we apologise for any confusion on google which in the past "summarised" this page to list us as "manned 24/7" We are not a 24/7 manned facility
If you need a local vet In the event of an Emergency
Please call 02 42 832333 and follow the message given. When you are able to speak with the vet on duty, please identify yourself as a client of Russell Vale Animal Clinic to enable access to the emergency veterinary service.
- please be kind to the after hours vet who has given up their free time to be available to care for you and your pet (they most likely have also worked during the day, so it is like doing a "doubla"}.
- please be respectful of the after hours vet, as your behaviour to them also reflects on me also (if you are a client of our vet hospital).
- My financial arrangement is to allow you to have access to this service, but you will still need to pay the after hours vet on the night, for any veterinary fees at the time of service.
For more information as to why we have done this, go here.
