Pet Emergency Care

 

Our After-Hours service is provided by Massey University’s Pet Emergency Centre (MUPEC) in Palmerston North during the week, and Totally Vets Accident and Medical Centre in Fielding during the weekends, providing the ultimate in 24-hour care for your beloved pet.

NOTE: This is a change to our after-hours service as of July 2021 – MUPEC have been overwhelmed with a huge case load, so these changes have become necessary

 

We are aware most clients wish for their pet to be monitored continuously overnight and in the weekends and not just left in hospital with twice-daily check-ups as is standard in general practice where staff are not on site 24/7.

Therefore, we have engaged the ultimate after-hours service where your pet is continually monitored by on-site staff in state-of-the-art facilities in both centres. Continuous monitoring is especially important in road traffic emergencies which may include internal injuries/ bleeding and fractured limbs, as well as other acute medical or surgical emergencies. Because we care, we recommend this dedicated 24/7 service.
