After hour Vets Care Clinic in Hobart for your Pets-Kimberly’s Pet Taxi will Be helping Transport pets From vets to the new After hours Vet Care

First 24-hour vet to open

JENNIFER CRAWLEY   |   November 23, 2011 12.01am


THE first 24-hour veterinary clinic in the state opens next week.

The after-hours veterinary emergency centre, AHVEC, will open overnight, seven days a week, weekends and public holidays.

The clinic, which will operate from the Tasmanian Animal Hospital at Bellerive, would take the pressure off of daytime vets, said AHVEC director and veterinarian Rhianna Jones.

She said vets who spent long hours working during the day and were called out at night got together and came up with the idea.

“They wanted to spend time with their families, plus if they wake up at night they’re not fully operational, they’re not going to give the animals the best care,” Dr Jones said.

Three full-time vets and five full-time nurses will staff the clinic.

The vets should not have to work more than three nights in a row.

The most common call-out for vets at night was for dogs hit by cars or injured in fights, Dr Jones said.

Pet owners who came home from work to find a sick animal and emergency delivery of pets’ babies by caesarean section were other reasons why vets get called out, she said.

Dr Jones said she was very excited about the clinic.

“For me it offers a new level of care that we haven’t offered before. AHVEC staff ask pet owners to call before coming in, but if your dog gets hit on the street and you just rush in, that’s fine,” Dr Jones said.

The 24-hour service will cover most of the veterinary clinics in southern Tasmania.

AHVEC will open at 6pm until 8am weeknights, on Saturdays from noon until 8am on Mondays, and on public holidays.

AHVEC opens on Monday, November 28, at 27 Clarence St, Bellerive.
