Frequently Asked Questions

See your regular vets during irregular hours for
all your pet’s emergency needs.

Do I need to make an appointment?

We recommend giving the clinic a call on 03 5243 0077 to speak with one of our emergency nurses. They will discuss your pet’s symptoms and advise the best time to come into the clinic based on urgency. You can also book online at www.vetsofgeelong.com.au 

How long will I have to wait?

Waiting time can vary. Due to the nature of emergency appointments we need to prioritise patients based on the urgency of their condition, therefore even though you may have an appointment could still be required to wait. Our emergency nurses will keep you up to date with the expected waiting time.

I don’t normally go to your clinic, can I still get an appointment?

Yes, everyone is welcome to attend our after hours clinic.

Do you run accounts?

The clinic offers a payment service called VetPay. We can apply for you in clinic or you can apply online WELCOME | VetPay Australia at home. It’s a quick process and only takes around 5 minutes to get an answer.

Do I need my pet's records?

If you are new to our clinic and your pet is on any medication it would be helpful to bring this along to your appointment. If required we can contact your regular clinic in the morning to easily obtain a full history.
