Emergency & Critical Care

At Supervets we operate a primary health care service alongside an emergency veterinary service.
This means we see patients by appointment and also respond to emergencies that may present. We value your time and will always endeavour to run on schedule however due to the unpredictable nature of emergencies there may be occasions where the vet is running late as they respond to critically unwell patients. We will always prioritise care.

If you deem your pet requires urgent medical treatment please present to our Manly West hospital at any time, no appointment necessary. From initial assessment, if your pet requires immediate attention we will transfer them directly to our treatment area to commence emergency care.

It can be beneficial calling ahead of time in the case of a emergency. We can provide first aid directions and advice that may be able to aid in your pets outcome during or prior to transportation. A notification call can allow for the vet and vet nurses to prepare for your pets arrival and reduce the delay to treatment.

Our team is fully-trained and skilled in Emergency Medicine, we have the facilities, medications and equipment to treat and respond to any and all life-threatening cases.

about services
Our Team

I have tried many vets, in hopes of finding “the right vet” for my dog, my cat and my bird. After years of searching, I stumbled across Anthony at Supervets, when it was time to lay to rest our beautiful Collie. Anthony came to our home. He explained the process with a manner full of grace and care. Words can not express the difference Anthony made during this passing of our beloved dog. Genuine, professional, kind, thoughtful, understanding and humane. Anthony is more than we thought we could find in a veterinarian, as are the others working with Supervets. We now have another dog and Anthony and Ray look after him with genuine care and extensive knowledge. We found the vets we were searching for and we recommend Supervets to anyone wanting honest and genuinely caring veterinarian care for their pets. AND realistic charges that are not hidden nor deceptive. Worth every cent!
