We are open 11 hours each week day so before 8am or after 7pm our veterinary staff are taking a well-earned break.
But for you there is nothing more distressing than to have your pet fall sick or be injured in the middle of the night. Everything seems worse and we feel more helpless at these times.
As Veterinarians we have an ethical obligation to provide a 24 hour service, so we are members of the Christchurch After Hours Veterinary Centre to ensure you and your pets needs are meet at all times. They can be found on the corner of Disraeli and Antigua Street, Christchurch, ph 366-1052.
If you need urgent veterinary attention when we are closed the answer machine will give you all the numbers and details you need. They will email your pet’s information back to us first thing in the morning so we know exactly what has happened to your pet and we can continue with treatment back at our centre if necessary.
