After Hours Veterinary Clinic: Who Are We?
The House Call Vet is a comprehensive and modern veterinary practice in Brisbane that combines traditional veterinary clinics with an advanced house call service. With our fleet of house call vehicles and network of veterinary hospitals, we are able to care for pets across Brisbane.
Our custom-designed Mobile Veterinary Units (MVUs) act as our consult rooms, fanning out from our clinic bases each morning to see pets across Brisbane. Our MVUs are equipped with microscopes, scales, diagnostic equipment, and a fully-stocked pharmacy so that most pets can be treated at home. If in-clinic care is needed, we provide complimentary patient transport to and from our surgeries.
Our state of the art veterinary clinics act as our regional ‘hospitals’, providing comprehensive facilities where pets can be taken when they require in-clinic care such as surgeries, x-rays or dental procedures. Our clinics also perform in-clinic consultations every day for our patients who prefer to come to visit us at the clinic!
This model ensures that no matter what level of care your pets needs, and regardless of whether you prefer in-home or in-clinic appointments, we can be there for you and your pet.
Our After Hours Veterinary Clinic Services
Brisbane’s Leading After Hours Veterinary Clinic
Emergency after hours vet care is not like routine vet care. An emergency requiring immediate veterinary attention is necessary when your pet is severely injured or extremely ill. If your pet should become dangerously injured or suddenly become very ill, they will need prompt emergency vet care.
If your pet is behaving differently to how they normally behave, or shows signs of being ill or injured, you may want to bring them into our clinic for vet care. However, if your pet is experiencing or showing signs of the following, we would recommend bringing them in for immediate care:
- trauma, such as being hit by a car
- difficulty breathing
- requiring a blood transfusion
- in shock; signs of shock include weakness, pale gums, cold limbs and an abnormal heart rate
- trouble urinating or not urinating at all
- unable to eat on their own
- life-threatening neurological diseases
- poor recovery after surgery or minor procedures
If you suspect that your pet requires emergency vet care, you should try to bring them to a House Call Vet clinic as soon as possible. If you are unable to move your pet yourself, you can contact us to make use of our mobile veterinary services. Some emergencies can be attended to at your home and may not require transportation of your pet at all.
If your pet is ill, unwell or injured and in pain, it is likely that it will not behave the way your are used to it behaving. Try to remain calm and provide comfort to your pet. Take note of the following:
- Pets can behave unpredictably when unwell, but especially when they are in pain. Be very cautious when handling your pet. Wrapping them in a blanket can help them feel more comfortable, warm and safe.
- In some cases, it is advisable not to feed your pet when you suspect they are unwell or injured. Contact one of our clinics if you are uncertain.
- If you suspect that your pet has been poisoned, try to bring what may have poisoned them with. This will help treat your pet faster as the veterinarian will know what to give your pet.
- If your pet is bleeding, be sure to stem the flow with towelling until you can get your pet to the clinic, or until a veterinarian reaches your home.
