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
As a solo vet with a family, it is not possible for us to be awake 24/7 to look after your pets, although we are always available for advice via mobile, email or Facebook.
Your options of a fully manned, open emergency veterinary facility for after normal business hours attention include:
1. Animal Referral Hospital Wollongong
2. Advanced Treatment Centre (Veterinary Specialists of Sydney ) Miranda
3.Ingleburn Veterinary Emergency Centre,
4. University of Sydney Veterinary Teaching Hospital and
There are other emergency veterinary hospitals also in Sydney.
We ask that you
- be kind to the vet on duty, as being a vet is not "just a job', they are there to do the best they can for your pet and you
- be aware that there are fees associated with veterinary care, and that fees are expected to be paid at the time of service.
- I will receive information about your pet's visit, but as a precaution a quick email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org would be appreciated.
