Animal Emergency Centre Mount Waverley

You Never Stop Loving THEM, Neither do WE
About Us
Who We Are

The first Animal Emergency Centre (AEC) at Mount Waverley was founded in 1975 when a group of Melbourne Veterinary Practitioners decided that a better facility was required to serve their clients when in need of emergency treatment.

The AEC's extended service ensures suitable vet care is available in the hours regular vet clinics are not operational.

AEC centres are equipped with a full range of diagnostic tools of trade and protocols are regularly updated to ensure all referred patients are treated with the latest knowledge.

Any owner who elects to come into or is referred to the AEC can be assured that their special companion will be cared for - always, 24/7.

Cost and Payments

Costs & Payments

Unlike some human emergency services, the AEC receives no government subsidies. Our clinics are entirely funded by the income we generate and our fees are carefully set to ensure that we can provide all of the necessary resources to provide for the needs of distressed animals.

The Animal Emergency Centre accepts most payment options including cash, Visa, Mastercard and Amex.

What is An Emergency?

If your pet exhibits any abnormal activity or behaviour, please consult with your regular veterinarian. The following symptoms are definitely emergencies and require immediate medical attention.

Please be aware that patients are seen in order of urgency, not order of arrival. At times, there may be a wait before a veterinarian is available.

We appreciate your patience whilst we attend to patients with immediately life-threatening problems.

Some of the symptoms to be aware of:

Difficulty breathing, blue tongue or raspy breath sounds.

Swollen or distended abdomen, with or without productive vomiting.

Loss of balance or consciousness, convulsions or seizure activity.
