Geelong Animal Emergency

September 11 / 69

The University’s Veterinary Hospital has opened a new clinic, Geelong Animal Emergency, to provide after-hours animal emergency care. 

Head Veterinarian Rebecca Gristy has been working with veterinary clinics in Geelong and the surrounding areas to ensure smooth continuation of patient care from day one of operation.
 “We have appointed a team of local emergency staff which includes four veterinarians and four nurses,” she said.

“We are really lucky as we have an experienced and energetic team which is excited about our new role in Geelong.

“We have all been preparing for the opening and are ready to hit the ground running.”
 There will be a smooth transition with ongoing care, whether treatment is continued by the referring clinic or by the University of Melbourne Veterinary Hospital’s Emergency and Critical Care service in Werribee.

Dr Gristy said the support provided by the Heads of Emergency and Critical Care, Diagnostic Imaging and Surgery at the University Veterinary Hospital had been fantastic.

“They have all been generous with their time, and we have been able to draw on their wealth of knowledge and experience to help us prepare for our work at Geelong Animal Emergency.
“This means, at the end of the day, that we will be able to provide an even better service for the residents of Geelong and their pets.”

The new clinic is located at 102 Fyans Street, Geelong, close to Kardinia Park. The clinic will be open Monday to Friday, 6:00pm - 9:00am and 24 hours on weekends and public holidays. To contact the clinic, call 5222 2139.
