After Hours Service
We refer our after hours callers to:
Adelaide Animal Emergency Centre
119 Anzac Highway, Kurralta Park
The Adelaide Animal Emergency Centre (AAERC) is now under new management and we are extremely happy with the service they have been providing our clients and your pets. While we are aware that clients do not get us, or the vet of their choice, you will get an capable and alert face in the middle of the night.
As the AAERC facility is fully staffed all night, in an emergency your pet will receive immediate and round the clock attention. All treatments are fully documented and are sent on to us for the updating of your pets records.
Specialties We Offer
At the Torrens Road Vet Clinic we pride ourselves in all aspects of the service and care we provide for you and your pets. Areas we are particularly skilled in include anaesthesia, orthopaedic and soft tissue surgery, dermatology, long standing/recurring ear infections, dermatology, dentistry, intensive care, digital radiography, behaviour consultations, weight control programs, puppy preschool, birthing assistance and Caesarian births.
Skin problems or dermatology is an area that can be really frustrating for pets, owners and vets. We can offer very current therapies including allergy testing.
Anaesthetic safety is as important to us as it is to you and your pet. It is something we take very seriously. We keep a range of the best anaesthetics in stock and always use the safest and most appropriate one for your pet's individual needs. An anaesthetic nurse will closely monitor your pet's heart rate, blood oxygen saturation, end tidal CO2, temperature, blood pressure and respiration throughout the procedure and during recovery.
We have a DIY Hydro-bath Centre, affectionately called "The Purple Rinse". This is a purpose built area, equipped with two hydro-baths, a dryer and an outside fenced off towel drying area for your use.
